“He is the first president that I know of who spends more time reading his Twitter ‘likes’ than his briefing books or the constitution of the United States,” Kerry told Maher.
Kerry said he’d “never seen anything quite like” the critical claims made about Trump in the anonymous New York Times op-ed purportedly penned by a senior White House official and in veteran journalist Bob Woodward’s new tell-all book, Fear.
“Unfortunately, we have a president, literally, for whom the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth is three different things, and you don’t even know what they are,” said Kerry. “He’s got the maturity of an eight-year-old boy with the insecurity of a teenage girl. That’s just who he is.”
Kerry traded barbs with Trump on Twitter Friday after the president blasted Kerry for conducting what he called “illegal meetings” with the “very hostile” Iranian regime:
Kerry fired back, saying Trump “should be more worried” about his former campaign manager Paul Manafort’s guilty plea to criminal conduct and decision to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible Trump campaign collusion.
Kerry also addressed the Iran meetings with Maher.
“Well Henry Kissinger, for forty years, has been traveling to Russia, traveling to China, talks with the leaders. There’s absolutely nothing unusual about it,” he claimed.
