John Kerry Wishes 'Complete Fool' Greg Gutfeld a Happy Veterans Day

by Amy Russo | Nov 11th, 2018, 4:09 pm 172

John Kerry may have once been the country’s top diplomat, but the gloves are off on Twitter.

The former secretary of state delivered a sharp rebuke of Fox Newser Greg Gutfeld Sunday, calling him a “complete fool” after Gutfeld lashed out at him with a personal insult.

It all started when Kerry commented on President Donald Trump‘s decision to skip a visit to a World War I cemetery near Paris on Saturday because of rainy weather.

That’s when Gutfeld jumped in, tweeting at Kerry, “U didn’t stop ISIS. you sent James Taylor. Plug your knothole, Captain Driftwood.”

Less than 24 hours later, Kerry hopped back on Twitter to wish the cable personality a “Happy Veterans Day” along with a pertinent message.

2. Read years ago here on DU that Gutfield was a bartender just before he got on Fox

Much like Hannity was before Ailes grabbed him to fill space.

Nothing against bartenders but Gutfield was just looking for a job. He hosed th or "Red Eye" focused on the 2 am bar crowd. Didn't work. He edited Maxim for three years.

Not funny. Of course if every joke had to have the premise “poor people and people that are different than me are bad” I would also struggle to be funny.

As they say down here in Australia.

Which by the way went all out here in Sydney and in Canberra, where we spent several days and visited the Australian War Memorial, paid sincere homage to ALL of those who served, including the Americans in wars of the last century.

I highly recommend visiting Sydney and Canberra ANZAC memorials. Trump is misstepping bigly on our allies around the world.

the (R)epuglicons and other vested interests.

I've long admired the efforts of the Aussies and others that served for freedom. That, of course, includes the fight by the aboriginals to have control of their own lives.

Unlike Donnie Bone-Spurs who couldn't walk a NYC block.

5. Can't find the original quote from Rand Paul

but, I believe 3-4 years back, Rand Paul said something to the effect that "hawks in the Republican Party" are responsible for ISIS. Which was maybe the last time he was honest.

14. remember the ISIS caravan of 'new trucks' that 'marched out of Iran' a decade ago?

IMO Russia (along with some unknown buddies, Assad?) funded that terrorist group, along with couple of their ally-friend countries.

Now its a disorganized religious extremist 'movement' ,back then someone gave them the new Toyota trucks & funded 'paychecks' for followers.

A failed standup comedian who would be living in a box behind a skating rink if not for his Fox News gig. He is as vile as any other cretin on that network.

15. Nicely calibrated response to Fox nastiness

The Fox attacks have been repeated constantly from the RW on twitter. Neither has any validity. Kerry and Obama built the coation that fought ISIS successfully - leaving a weak rememnent when they left office. As to James Taylor, he was a very good friend of Kerry's and was in Europe at the time. He is very popular in France. Not to mention, when Kerry came, French radio covered his about 20 - 30 minute speech given in French live ending with James Taylor, who is very popular singing "You've got a Friend" - which matched that Kerry was saying that the US was there for France. (Kerry, whose mom was born and lived until she fled (on a bike) when the Germans captured Paris as a young woman was and is popular in France -- unlike Trump.)
