Trump attacked this moderate Republican. His devastating response is unforgettable.

Go ahead and put this one on loop. We'll wait.

After a surprisingly close race in Ohio’s 12th congressional district last month, Republicans have been grappling with the increased likelihood that this November’s midterm elections will not go well for their party.

On Monday morning, President Trump decided to throw blame at Ohio Gov. John Kasich.


In a tweet to his followers, Trump said it was Kasich’s late endorsement that caused the race to be so close.

Kasich is normally a pretty thoughtful politician.

In fact, during the 2016 Republican presidential primary, he ended up being the last person standing against the future president, offering a moderate and even-tempered alternative to Trump's bluster.

But sometimes, you just gotta cut to the chase.

Rather than writing out an extended explanation of why Trump’s reasoning was unsound, Kasich simply chose to respond to his tweet with a GIF of Vladimir Putin smirking.

The two have feuded for years but this is next level.

Things got pretty heated between Trump and Kasich during the 2016 primary and they’ve never made up.

During Trump’s infamous summit with Putin, Kasich was quick to call out the disastrous meeting for what it was, a “sad day” for America and the world.

But in his tweet response Monday morning, Kasich was cutting through all the nuance and declaring through a simple image that in his view, Trump is little more than a joke and one that Putin is laughing at all the way to the bank.

Kasich reminds us that the best way to handle Trump is often with humor.

Responding to Trump’s policies and behaviors on a daily basis can be exhausting. Not every activist, lawmaker or citizen has the emotional bandwidth to go high when he goes low.

Sometimes, the best way to tell a story is with humor. And Kasich is telling one heck of a story in a single image. And it’s one that won’t soon be forgotten.

Davina Agudelo was born in Miami, Florida, but she grew up in Medellín, Colombia.

"I am so grateful for my upbringing in Colombia, surrounded by mountains and mango trees, and for my Colombian family," Agudelo says. "Colombia is the place where I learned what's truly essential in life." It's also where she found her passion for the arts.

While she was growing up, Colombia was going through a violent drug war, and Agudelo turned to literature, theater, singing, and creative writing as a refuge. "Journaling became a sacred practice, where I could leave on the page my dreams & longings as well as my joy and sadness," she says. "During those years, poetry came to me naturally. My grandfather was a poet and though I never met him, maybe there is a little bit of his love for poetry within me."

In 1998, when she left her home and everyone she loved and moved to California, the arts continued to be her solace and comfort. She got her bachelor's degree in theater arts before getting certified in journalism at UCLA. It was there she realized the need to create a media platform that highlighted the positive contributions of LatinX in the US.

"I know the power that storytelling and writing our own stories have and how creative writing can aid us in our own transformation."

In 2012, she started Alegría Magazine and it was a great success. Later, she refurbished a van into a mobile bookstore to celebrate Latin American and LatinX indie authors and poets, while also encouraging children's reading and writing in low-income communities across Southern California.
