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!" (More Donald Trump 2016 stories.)
