This administration and its foreign policy are literally a joke. Literally no one takes them seriously.

With the clock running down on a ceasefire between Ukraine’s government and pro-Russian separatists in the country’s east, Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday called on Russia to show, “in the next hours, literally,” that it was working on disarming the militias.

Hours later, however, a senior State Department official said the comment “shouldn’t be taken literally,” as Kerry simply intended to underline the urgency of the situation.

Announcing that Kerry shouldn’t be taken literally is now a default position at the State Department.

When Kerry discussed an “unbelievably small” strike on Syria, the clean up crew had to come out. Then Kerry suggested that Syria disarm. The State Department rushed out to explain that Kerry was joking. Then Obama liked the idea so State had to explain that it was joking about the joking.

Literally.

America really missed out on a fantastic four years from 2004 to 2008.

    To think Kerry took this job to polish his 2016 presidential resume.

      What do you expect. Kerry knew Hillary took the the job to burnish her resume. Kerry is just following suit.

      Kerry can follow the leader with the best of them.

    Kerry is defecating and his people is trying to clean it up. But if Hussein can be “literally” disarmed of his phone and pen, maybe the US can once more become the country the founding fathers had in mind, the land of the brave and the free.

    Yeah, good old Barry and Kerry…sounds like a puppet show. They strike fear in the hearts of no one, except Americans.

  • Veracious_one

    America’s greatness is certainly circling the drain if the best we can come up with is the likes of Kerry…

    • Christopher Riddle

      Did you forget about OBONGO??????????????????

  • Christopher Riddle

    “It’s Howdy-Kerry Time”???

  • Jerry G

    Whoever said that this country was founded by geniuses but is now run by idiots must have had Kerry, amongst others, in mind.

  • Gee

    Kerry so reminds me of the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. Though he wouldn’t know what to do with a brain in the first place

  • FrontandCenter

    Kerry’s SOP: “I did not say that, but if I did, I should have said something else.” How could anyone take him literally about anything?

  • DilloTank

    With the political Left, words are not meant to be taken literally. Obviously.

    So can we please stop voting for these people already? Don’t vote for them!!!!
