So what’s new?
John Kerry was a disastrous secretary of state who gave us the ruinous Iran deal, did nothing about North Korea, and now is interfering with President Trump’s foreign policy by illegally conducting his own.
Kerry has been meeting with foreign leaders, including the Iranians, in an attempt to save his precious, painstakingly negotiated handiwork.
Trump tweeted Tuesday morning:
John Kerry can’t get over the fact that he had his chance and blew it! Stay away from negotiations John, you are hurting your country!

As usual, Trump has homed right in on his enemy’s weakness. Kerry no doubt can’t get over the fact that he never became president. So he had to do “big things” as secretary of state. He tried to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and when that failed, he struck a grand bargain with the ayatollahs that essentially just delays recognition of their nuclear program.
I think Trump should confront Iran, but I think he should wait until he has settled things with North Korea, as I wrote here. But John Kerry needs to spend more time sail surfing and less time adding to the damage he has done to this country.
I mean, the guy can’t even figure out whether to give a hug or a handshake.
