(Newser) – It's not nearly as succinct as "Lyin' Ted" or "Little Marco," but Donald Trump seems to have come up with a nickname for John Kasich, notes Politico. He referred to the Ohio governor as "1 for 38 Kasich" in a tweet responding to the news that Kasich and Ted Cruz were teaming up to try to stop him from reaching the magic delegate number of 1,237. "Lyin' Ted Cruz and 1 for 38 Kasich are unable to beat me on their own so they have to team up (collusion) in a two on one," Trump tweeted, referring to Kasich's track record in the GOP primaries. (He's apparently counting both states and territories, reports the Hill.) "Shows weakness!"
