The joke that may have lost John Kerry all his friends at CNN

Secretary of State John Kerry probably doesn’t have many friends left at CNN after the jab he delivered to the network at Saturday’s prestigious Gridiron Club dinner.

Although jokes and satire are a long-standing tradition at the annual dinner of “Washington’s most prestigious press group,” Kerry’s response to a question from CNN’s John King, though absolutely the truth, probably fell flat with the powers that be at CNN.

According to Dylan Byers from Politico:

During a humorous and well-received speech, Kerry, the evening’s headliner, said that CNN’s John King had asked if the former Massachusetts Senator was considering another presidential bid in 2016.

Kerry’s response: “I am out of politics — and based on the ratings, so is CNN.”

Ouch. And though rare to hear from it Kerry, the truth hurts.

    Good comment – however, I wouldn’t believe anything that dumb ‘yes’ man said if it came notarized. After he lied about his ‘dangerous missions’, being shot at, hiding from the enemy etc. in the Viet Nam war, he’s absolutely despicable. His gunboat crew had the courage to come forward and claim their commanding officer was a liar – no such things occurred and it was a relatively calm run.
    FYI, he’s married to Theresa Heinz, heiress of the Heinz food fortune & I’m sure that gives him a false bravura that makes him so repulsive. Next time he goes to Israel, I hope they bury him in the sand….he has always been a jerk.

    Ya, that probably threw a little acid in the worn out baking soda.

    Kerry just keeps on giving. :o)

    John Kerry, some how told the truth for once, and CNN is not use to the truth. So they went into shock that Kerry told the truth, and double shock when he told the truth about them.

    what difference does it make, really, at this point…
    the good news is Kerry ‘says’ he’s out of politics…wonder when that will start.

    Without politics and his wives’ money, Kerry would starve. He was not very bright. A poor student. A rotten sailor. A slow thinking debater. A lousy lawyer. And a terrible patriot. But he was a good protester, head of Vietnam Veterans Against the War. The democrat party was all he had left. Living up to his credentials, he insulted one of his few friends. Very entertaining.

      “And a terrible patriot.”
      What is a “terrible patriot”? That is an oxymoron as much as “jumbo shrimp”. Yes, Kerry is terrible but he is NO patriot. In fact, he is a lying traitor.

        Point taken.

    Kerry and CNN are just big jokes.
