Since his plane touched down in Washington at 4 a.m., Secretary Kerry was working all day and on the phone dealing with the crisis in Egypt. He participated in the White House meeting with the president by secure phone and was and is in non-stop contact with foreign leaders, and his senior team in Washington and Cairo. Any report or tweet that he was on a boat is completely inaccurate.
Completely inaccurate. You hear me? COMPLETELY!
(What’s that? They have photos? Photos of Kerry on the boat?)
While he was briefly on his boat on Wednesday, Secretary Kerry worked around the clock all day including participating in the president’s meeting with his national security council.
I don’t really care if John Kerry wants to stay on a vacation that he presumably planned not knowing there was going to be an international crisis.
Just don’t lie about it.
P.S. You know what would be nice, when government officials say x on Day 1 and “not x” on Day 2, would be an explanation as to why they said x on Day 1. Instead of just sort of pretending they didn’t.
Wouldn’t that be nice? I think it would. It really would.
