Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s campaign decided to have a little fun with the praise Russian President Vladimir Putin heaped on Republican frontrunner Donald Trump this week, creating a video and press release satirically promoting a Trump-Putin 2016 ticket.
“In a bold and visionary move characteristic of everything he does, today terrific billionaire Donald Trump named Russian President Vladimir Putin as his running mate in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign,” Team Kasich wrote in a news release.

“Trump pledged that together with Putin he would “Make Tyranny Great Again.”
“Don’t mind the constitutional problems with our candidacy. This campaign will be terrific! Huge! A merger of two great powers!” the faux campaign website reads.
