Obama’s former Secretary of State John Kerry has admitted to meeting with Iranian officials.
“John Kerry had illegal meetings with the very hostile Iranian Regime, which can only serve to undercut our great work to the detriment of the American people. He told them to wait out the Trump Administration! Was he registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act? BAD!”

As reported by Brooke Singman of Fox News, “The president’s tweet came amid Republican criticism for Kerry’s “shadow diplomacy” with Iran. Kerry admitted to having multiple meetings with Iranian officials behind the backs of Trump administration officials. Some of the meetings were in regards to the scrapped Iranian Nuclear Deal.”
“A Kerry spokesperson did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the president’s tweet.”
Hmmm. That’s odd. I’m guessing that Kerry’s lawyers are advising him and his spokespeople to kind of keep this more on the “down low,” at least until they can get their excuses and lies in order.
“During an appearance on Fox News’ ‘The Daily Briefing,’ Kerry did not deny the suggestion he told Iranians to ‘wait out’ Trump until the next Democratic president. ‘I think everybody in the world is talking about waiting out President Trump,’ Kerry said.”
That’s right John, all of the “anti-America” types are hoping to “wait him out.” That would be “everybody in the world” to you.
“Kerry, the former Massachusetts senator who worked as the nation’s top diplomat in the Obama administration, made the comments about his interactions with Iran as he promotes his new book, ‘Every Day Is Extra.’”
Is this some kind of prerequisite now that every political idiot put out a book? We know he didn’t actually write the book, but that’s just details. I will give him credit for the crappy title though. “Every Day Is Extra” is particularly dumb and pretentious.
Ms. Singman added that, “The Treasury Department last month restored sanctions against Iran,” and that, “Predident Trump blasted Kerry for his ‘possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy.’”
“Kerry, though, denied his meetings were inappropriate.”
No, no, no. Nothing inappropriate here at all. What world do these people live in? I’m sure President Obama would not have minded if a former official from the Bush administration inserted themselves into Obama’s Iranian negotiations. How is undermining your country’s foreign policy efforts not treasonous?
“Every secretary of state, former secretary of state continues to meet with foreign leaders, goes to security conferences, goes around the world,” Kerry said on “The Daily Briefing.” “We all do that. And we all have conversations [about] the state of affairs with the world in order to understand them.”
Sorry John. Nice try, but I have literally never heard of any former secretary of state, or any other former official for that matter, meeting with officials from an adversarial country without the invitation of the current administration. Your behavior has far exceeded having “conversations [about] the state of affairs with the world in order to understand them.”
Your behavior is treasonous in my opinion, and you should currently be under investigation in that regard.
If you want to conduct foreign policy on behalf of our nation, John, please either get hired by the state department or win an election.
