Republican Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has fired back at John Kerry after President Joe Biden’s “climate czar” made a stunning admission about the Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act legislation.
Massie was on Fox Business Network’s “Kennedy” and called out Kerry, saying the top Democrat called him “an a**hole more than once.”
“Let’s get sassy with Massie,” Kennedy said.
“I know John Kerry is one of your favorite targets. Are you–”
“He called me an a**hole more than once,” Massie said.
Kennedy started to laugh before telling him: “We’re on the air, congressman.
“Did no one tell you?”
When John Kerry said the Inflation Reduction Act didn’t have much to do with inflation, he committed the ultimate political crime: candor. @Kennedynation got #sassywithMassie when we discussed this last night. pic.twitter.com/y5qFUUNBSs

Breaking news: Congressman Massie has tested positive for being an asshole. He must be quarantined to prevent the spread of his massive stupidity. He's given new meaning to the term #Masshole. (Finally, something the president and I can agree on!) https://t.co/N1CNLPsZjc

As Slay News previously reported, Kerry admitted earlier this week that the Inflation Reduction Act doesn’t have “much” to do with reducing inflation.
“I’m not sure how much it has to do with inflation, but that’s OK,” Kerry said about the bill.
“The most important parts of the IRA are very simple.
“Production and investment tax credits.
“That, I think, is going to do more than almost anything else in the bill.
“We don’t have to have government making choices about winners and losers.
“The marketplace is going to choose.
“You, inventors and investors, are going to help move that along, and we’re going to get there.
“No government is going to solve this problem,” he said.
“The private sector is the entity that has the trillions of dollars.
According to The Financial Times:
US climate envoy John Kerry has called for reform of international financial institutions over a failure to marshal funds related to climate change but refused to be drawn on whether the Biden administration had confidence in the World Bank leadership.
The bank, led by Trump-appointee David Malpass, has come under sustained criticism over its policies towards funding fossil fuel projects from those involved in the UN as well as climate experts such as former vice-president Al Gore, who again called for Malpass’s resignation on Tuesday.
