Today\’s quote – and if he really said this, it is beyond incredible – comes to us from Secretary Of State John Kerry.
Kerry made a shiva (condolence) call on the family of Max Steinberg, a 24 year old Woodland Hills, California native who joined the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and was killed in action last week.
According to the Los Angeles Jewish Journal, when Kerry met Steinberg\’s mother, Evie, this is what he is reported as having said:
How the eff do you think the mother of a just-killed 24 year old was, John?
I would very much like to think that this is not being reported accurately. But I am reasonably certain it is. On that basis, I award John Kerry Quote Of The Day honors for setting a new world standard for tone-deaf idiocy.
Maybe one day someone will surpass it. But, to tell you the truth, I can\’t think of how.
