Being Secretary of State is nice work if you can get it . Here Secretary of State John Kerry is reporting for duty aboard his warship, the USS Isabel. While the Isabel will probably shortly sail on a secret Christmas Day mission to Cambodia while dodging RPGs and members of the Kennedy family, for the moment it is moored in Nantucket while the Middle East burns.
3 AM phone call? Please. That’s for people who work for a living.
Kerry spokesperson Jen Psaki denied the report.
“Since his plane touched down in Washington at 4 am, Secretary Kerry was working all day and on the phone dealing with the crisis in Egypt,” Psaki said in a statement.
Kerry was absent from a White House photo showing President Obama meeting with members of his national security team to discuss the situation in Egypt, but Psaki said he had dialed in on a secure phone line for that meeting.
“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.”
So we have a Secretary of State who telecommutes from a yacht. Wonder what the Romans would have made of that?
