John Kerry gets it from all sides for comparing Trump to an ‘insecure teenage girl’

The left turned on one of its own, torching former Secretary of State John Kerry for comparing the president of the United States to an “insecure teenage girl.”

Kerry made the insulting joke in an appearance on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday, as he promoted his new memoir, “Every Day is Extra.”

The potential 2020 presidential contender responded to Maher’s question about his reaction to President Donald Trump’s tweet slamming Kerry for “illegal meetings with the very hostile Iranian Regime.”

“He’s 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 said.

“He really is the rare combination of an 8-year-old boy – I mean, he’s got the maturity of an 8-year-old boy with the insecurity of a teenage girl. It’s just who he is,” he added, eliciting a cheer from the liberal audience.

Kerry blasted the president over his tweet condemning the former Secretary of State’s meetings with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and other Iranian diplomats after he left office.

Current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo echoed Trump’s condemnation, criticizing Kerry’s behavior as “unseemly and unprecedented.”

Kerry’s immature jab at Trump on Maher’s show may have gotten approval from the HBO audience but the social media audience was not so appreciative of his “insecure teenage girl” joke.

But it wasn’t just Trump supporters attacking Kerry, as liberals and progressives turned on their own, unleashing their fire on Kerry for daring to insult teenage girls everywhere.

Once the fun of watching liberals eat their own is over, Trump supporters Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, better known as Diamond and Silk, lightened the mood by sharing an “Oldie but Goodie” of the failed presidential candidate on Twitter.
