John Kerry Says Trump Is Like A ‘Teenage Girl’
Former Secretary of State John Kerry went on Real Time With Bill Maher to share his wisdom and insight on the current administration. And he held nothing back.
“He’s got the maturity of an 8-year-old boy with the insecurity of a teenage girl. That’s just who he is,” he said of Donald Trump. Bill had asked him why Trump seemed to be mad at him, to which he replied, “I don’t know. I think I told the truth.” Trump tweeted last week, “John Kerry had illegal meetings with the very hostile Iranian Regime, which can only serve to undercut our great work to the detriment of the American people. He told them to wait out the Trump Administration! Was he registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act? BAD!” John, however, was upfront about the meeting: “Everybody does,” he said.
“Henry Kissinger [another former Secretary of State] for 40 years has been traveling to Russia, traveling to China, talks with the leaders. There’s absolutely nothing usual about it. The conversation I think he really ought to be worrying about is Paul Manafort with [special counsel Robert] Mueller.”
Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, pleaded guilty to criminal charges related to his political consulting work in Ukraine as part of a plea deal with Mueller’s investigation.
“It really is giant, and soon you will be hearing him say, ‘That’s the worst deal that’s ever been made,’” John said. “When you stop and think about it, it’s gone from the ‘art of the deal’ to the ‘art of the squeal.’ I, honestly, have never seen anything quite like it: the anonymous [New York Times] op-ed, the [Bob] Woodward book, the chronology of everything that’s been happening. And it’s tough.” “Unfortunately,” he added, “we have a president, literally, for whom ‘the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth’ are three different things, and you don’t even know what they are.”
