After snubbing the French memorial service for the victims of radical Islamic terrorists, the administration has unleashed Secretary of State John Kerry in a one-man blizzard of diplomacy to try to unscrew the situation. What could go wrong, you ask? How could anyone possibly screw up making amends to our oldest ally? To the first nation the infant Republic signed a military defense pact with? Keep in mind what you are reading is NOT from The Onion:
U.S. Secretary of State [mc_name name=’Sen. John Kerry (D-MA)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’K000148′ ] met with France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and President Francois Hollande to offer condolences on the terrorist attacks that killed 17 people in Paris last week — and he brought a friend.
James Taylor joined Kerry onstage at city hall, where the singer performed a rendition of Carole King’s “You’ve Got a Friend” in tribute to victims of the attacks.
Before arriving in Paris, Kerry said of the trip, “My visit to France is basically to share a big hug for Paris and express the affection of the American people for France and for our friends there who have been through a terrible time.”
This is a tour de force of douchebaggery. It will never be equalled. If our diplomacy needed to hit rock bottom before entering Diplomats Anonymous, we are there.
