John Kasich got annoyed with a reporter Monday and grabbed the man's voice recorder.

Financial Times writer Demetri Sevastopulo interrupted the Ohio governor when he was saying, "Listen, at the end of the day I think the Republican Party wants to pick somebody who actually can win in the fall."

Sevastupolo, who was standing behind and to the right of Kasich, was holding a recorder on his left hand. He butted in during Kasich's answer, saying, "If you've only won Ohio …"

Kasich responded by saying, "Can I finish?"

"If you answer the question," Sevastopulo said.

"I'm answering the question the way I want to answer it. You want to answer it?"

Kasich then took the recorder out of Sevastopulo's hand and pretended to ask him a question, holding it near his face.

"Here let me ask you the question," Kasich said. "What do you think?"

"I think you should answer the question," Sevastopulo replied.

With 144 delegate votes, Kasich trails Donald Trump (744) and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (559) in the Republican race for president. He has vowed to stay in the race, saying he's hoping this summer's convention will be contested — which could give him a shot at earning the nomination.

Kasich has picked up several endorsements as of late, including from former New York Gov. George Pataki, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, and the New York Daily News.
