The line between politics and entertainment is becoming blurry and that’s not a good thing. John Kasich isn’t helping when he wades into issues like this one.

Kasich breaks down Taylor Swift-Katy Perry feud
Confused by the ongoing feud between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift? Look no further than Ohio Gov. John Kasich for a complete breakdown of the pop stars’ battle.
The 2016 GOP presidential candidate — a noted fan of all things popular culture — was asked to offer some insight into the origin of the fallout during a Thursday appearance on “The View.”
“Can you explain what in the hell is going on?” co-host Whoopi Golgberg asked Kasich.
“Well it’s shocking to everybody,” Kasich replied without missing a beat. “Don’t ever steal anybody’s dancers, is the message,” he added, referring to a 2014 story alleging that Perry swiped Swift’s back-up dancers ahead of a concert tour. Perry confirmed the back-up dancer issue was the source of the beef in a “Late Late Show” appearance this week.
“Maybe they’re just trying to get some extra press, although I don’t know that Taylor Swift needs any more press,” Kasich continued. “In fact, she kind of went into hiding, and now they say she’s going to reemerge with a new sound.”
Kasich, a father of two teenage girls, went on to explain some of Swift’s more recent musical history.
