Kasich vanishes in confetti after election night speech

In a flash of red, white, and blue, he was gone.

Well, not really, but that didn’t stop the world from welcoming a new political meme.

John Kasich’s Ohio headquarters became a game of “Where’s Waldo” on Tuesday night after a flood of confetti was released to celebrate the Republican hopeful’s first win. However, the confetti seemed to swallow the governor and his family whole.

And, of course, the Internet was quick to pick up on the moment and do what it does best — give great commentary.

Ohio, Kasich’s home state, was the first win for the governor who is considered to be the unlikely linchpin in GOP’s plan to stop Trump.
