Presidential Hopeful John Kasich Made a Sexist Remark and Even His Supporters Weren't Having It
During a town hall meeting in Fairfax, VA, John Kasich proudly proclaimed that during some of his earlier political campaigns women "left their kitchens" to support him. Since there are people out there who view women as real people who aren't confined to the kitchen, that didn't go over very well.
Obviously the protesters and opponents of Kasich took that comment and ran with it to voice their criticism.

What might be surprising is that even his supporters wouldn't put up with that comment. At the very end of the video a woman stands up to ask a question. She can't help but start off by bringing up the comment about women coming out of the kitchen, saying, "I'll come to support you. But I won’t be coming out of the kitchen."
When asked about it in an interview with CNN he sort of apologized, saying "Sure! I'm sorry," when the anchor asked why he didn't just apologize to the people who might have been offended.
