Secretary of State John Kerry delivered the mother of all zingers after a speech at Saturday night’s Gridiron Club dinner, when he was asked by CNN’s John King if he was considering another presidential run.
John Kerry’s response was priceless: ”I am out of politics — and based on the ratings, so is CNN.” Damn. BOOM.
Kerry wasn’t the only one to take a shot at the cable news network, which has suffered from notoriously low ratings for years. Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, the Democratic speaker, also riffed on the network’s woes.
“You know things are bad at CNN when they say they may go to a print edition,” Crist said, noting that he had been invited to appear on the network’s Sunday morning show, “State of the Union.”
