News is just in that John Kasich is dropping out, which removes any remaining drama about whether or not The Donald will be the GOP’s nominee to fill the Supreme Court and lead the Free World.

He will make an announcement about his campaign at 5 p.m. on Wednesday in Columbus, Ohio, his campaign said. Kasich abruptly canceled a news conference planned for Wednesday morning outside Washington, D.C.

Buckle up, America, because it’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
