John Kasich isn't shy about chowing down on the campaign trail, and this fact has not passed Donald Trump by. Trump, on the attack after Kasich and Ted Cruz teamed up against him, is denouncing Kasich as a messy eater, ABC News reports. "I have never seen a human being eat in such a disgusting fashion," Trump said at a campaign event in Rhode Island on Monday. "I'm always telling my young son Barron, I'm saying and I always do it with my kids," he said, "I would say, 'Children, small little bites.' This guy takes a pancake and he's shoving it in his mouth. It is disgusting. Do you want that for your president? I don't think so, I don't think so. Honestly, it's disgusting."

At his next rally, in Pennsylvania, Trump slammed Kasich as "a stubborn guy who eats like a slob" before describing himself as more presidential-looking than his rivals, CBS News reports. "Do I look like a president? How handsome am I, right? How handsome?" he said. "Somebody said, 'He really does look good but you know, I don't know if he's presidential.' And I'm looking at this stage of people—my competitors. Does Hillary look presidential?" (Earlier, Trump gave Kasich a new nickname.)
