Rep. Thomas Massie, R-K.Y., joined ‘Kennedy’ to discuss former Secretary of State John Kerry saying he’s unsure how much the Inflation Reduction Act ‘has to do with inflation.’
Where he had to be reminded on Fox Business Network on Thursday night after he noted John Kerry called him an “asshole.”
The eponymous host of Kennedy pointed to comments Kerry made about the Inflation Reduction Act at a conference earlier in the day.
“I’m not sure how much it has to do with inflation, but that’s ok,” he said. Kennedy noted the former secretary of state praised the bill signed into law by President Joe Biden in August.
“Let’s get sassy with Massie,” Kennedy said. “I know John Kerry is one of your favorite targets. Are you–”
“He called me an asshole more than once,” Massie interrupted, prompting Kennedy to chuckle.
“We’re on the air, Congressman,” Kennedy said through laughter. “Did no one tell you?”
Kerry did indeed call Massie an “asshole” on Twitter after the congressman voted against a massive Covid-19 relief package in March 2020.
