Republican presidential candidate Gov. John Kasich has been receiving a lot of flak for a comment he made recently on the campaign trail, saying, "And how did I get elected? Nobody was, I didn't have anybody for me. We just got an army of people who, um, and many women, who left their kitchens to go out and go door-to-door and to put yard signs up for me."
According to CNN, Kasich has since apologized for how the "left their kitchens" comment came across after he was accused of being chauvinistic.
But when the topic appeared on "The View," Christian and politically conservative cohost Candace Cameron Bure piped up as soon as her liberal cohosts started trashing Kasich.
Contributor Sunny Hostin pointed out another time when she felt Kasich was being a chauvinist, saying, "In 2012, he said at a rally for Mitt Romney, that political spouses are at home doing the laundry and doing so many things while we're up here on stage getting a little bit of applause."
But Candace immediately interjected, saying, "Was that not said in an encouraging way about, 'Hey, my wife's providing, doing all these things at home while the candidates are up there?' Are you flipping the way he meant it? I think [working at home is] hard work, and I would hope that he'd be appreciative. And that's how I can take the comment. I also think that John Kasich speaks from the heart — he's non-scripted."
Amazingly, very vocal liberal cohost Joy Behar actually conceded, admitting, "He's not that bad" for saying those things.
