DescriptionJohn Kerry, the former secretary of state and longtime Senate Democrat, quipped Friday that he “finally” agreed on something with President Donald Trump — that Republican Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky was way out of line.

“Congressman Massie has tested positive for being an *******,” tweeted Kerry, his party’s presidential nominee in 2004 and the owner of numerous Vietnam combat medals. “He’s given new meaning to the term #M*******. (Finally, something the president and I can agree on!)”

Massie, who, in addition to his surname’s overlap, might qualify for that unflattering nickname for people from Massachusetts by virtue of having attended MIT, was drawing flak from across the political spectrum after indicating that he may call for a roll-call vote in the House for a $2 trillion stimulus package, in a development that could delay passage of the measure. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had been counting on a relatively quick voice vote with “strong bipartisan” support, but Massie tweeted Friday that he planned to force House members to “vote on it by pushing ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or ‘present,’ ” as he suggested it’s not “too much to ask that the House do its job.”
