Recently, Secretary of State John Kerry made two very interesting statements that show he appears to be more concerned about Donald Trump than the rise of terrorism under President Obama’s watch.
Kerry recently defended the indefensible, supporting Obama’s tone-def response to the Brussels terror attacks by attending a baseball game in Cuba and dancing the night away in Argentina, claiming “The President of United States’ schedule is not set by terrorists.”
He then scoffed at those mourning the deaths of 35 people in Belgium saying “Life doesn’t stop because one terrible incident takes place in one place.”
At the same time however, Kerry showed that his mind is currently obsessed with the Republican presidential front-runner. Kerry claims that every world leader he meets asks “about what is happening in America” before adding “what’s happening is an embarrassment to our country.”
It should be noted that the State Department lists the following as one of Kerry’s job duties – “Ensures the protection of the U.S. Government to American citizens, property, and interests in foreign countries.” It is an aspect of his job Kerry seems unwilling to carry out, especially in light of the fact that multiple Americans died in the Brussels attack.
Nowhere in that list of job duties does it mention being a ‘political pundit.’

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld wasn’t about to let that slide.
“He’s right, life doesn’t stop,” Gutfeld said. “Unless you’re in Brussels or Pakistan and it’s shredded to pieces.”
He then mocked the Secretary of State’s bigger priorities as a representative of the United States, priorities such as “climate change, wage gaps, Argentinian dance instructors.”

Gutfeld reacted in his monologue on The Five. “Like a rusted garage door needing a gallon of WD-40, John Kerry opened his mouth this weekend,” he said.
“He’s right, life doesn’t stop, unless you’re in Brussels or Pakistan and it’s shredded to pieces. But for Kerry, there’s bigger fish than ISIS – climate change, wage gaps, Argentinian dance instructors.”
“Yes, after so much terror, this is the world’s concern – Trump,” said Gutfeld. “I think I can speak for all of us – I don’t care what the world thinks. They don’t have the best track record.”
Trump seemingly agrees in not caring that the world may think he’s an embarrassment. What matters is that they respect his authority as leader of the free world, should he become President.
“I’d rather be respected than (loved or feared),” Trump said in a recent interview.
Right now, the world doesn’t love, fear, or respect President Obama, and they sure as heck don’t give a damn what John Kerry has to say.
