President Donald Trump and former Secretary of State John Kerry, a Democrat, came together in solidarity via Twitter on Friday against Republican Rep. Thomas Massie, who threatened to delay the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill before it was voted on and passed in the House of Representatives on Friday.

Looks like a third rate Grandstander named @RepThomasMassie, a Congressman from, unfortunately, a truly GREAT State, Kentucky, wants to vote against the new Save Our Workers Bill in Congress. He just wants the publicity. He can’t stop it, only delay, which is both dangerous & costly,” Trump tweeted.

“Workers & small businesses need money now in order to survive. Virus wasn’t their fault. It is “HELL” dealing with the Dems, had to give up some stupid things in order to get the “big picture” done. 90% GREAT! WIN BACK HOUSE, but throw Massie out of Republican Party!” Trump added. 

Kerry tweeted in response, “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!).”

Trump addressed Kerry’s response, saying, “Never knew John Kerry had such a good sense of humor! Very impressed!”

Massie had released a series of tweets earlier on Friday explaining why he opposed the bill.

“I will request a vote on the CARES Act which means members of Congress will vote on it by pushing ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or ‘present,'” Massie explained.


“The Constitution requires that a quorum of members be present to conduct business in the House,” Massie added.

Massie had criticized the bill for its tax burden on the American people, as it is the largest stimulus plan in U.S. history.
