Safe to say Lurch’s stint as Secretary of State has been a disaster.
Secretary of State John Kerry called concern about no high-level U.S. representation “quibbling,” telling reporters in India that he asked his scheduler to fit in a trip to Paris as soon as possible. […]
“I personally — I think I must have been one of the first people in the world to have gone out publicly and spoken to the people of France about this, to our shock and horror and our very, very strong connection with the French at that moment. And the president also went out within hours and spoke about it,” he added.
“And we have offered, from the first moment, our intel, our law enforcement, and all of our efforts. And I really think this is sort of quibbling a little bit, in the sense that our Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, was there in the march. Our ambassador was there in the march. Many people from the embassy were there in the march.”
