Kerry Angrily Spars With Fox’s Chris Wallace: ‘You Like To Ask Questions, But You Don’t Like……!

Kerry Angrily Spars With Fox’s Chris Wallace: ‘You Like To Ask Questions, But You Don’t Like To Get Answers!’ 07/20/2014

After months of shutting Fox News out of his Sunday show appearances, a downed airliner in Ukraine and an ongoing Israeli invasion of Gaza compelled Secretary of State John Kerry to finally appear on “Fox News Sunday”

A frustrated Kerry relentlessly castigated Fox’s Chris Wallace for continuing to ask questions while the Secretary of State was in the middle of answering. “You like to ask questions, but you don’t like to get answers!” he charged petulantly, before refusing to address any more questions from Wallace until he had finished his original response.

The outburst came on the heels of a testy exchange over President Obama’s so-far tepid reaction the the shootdown of a Malaysian passenger jet over eastern Ukraine by Russia or Russian-backed separatists fighting in the region.

Visibly annoyed over Wallace’s continued pressing, Kerry could no longer hold in his disdain for Fox News after Wallace asked about tougher sanctions on Iran’s nuclear program.

“I know you and others don’t ever want to give the Obama administration credit for almost anything,” he charged bitterly, “but the fact is this is the first administration to get a [nuclear] rollback in ten years.”

Kerry went on for some time, finally prompting Wallace to attempt a follow-up question on whether Iran continues work on its nuclar centrifuges. That didn’t sit well with the secretary.

“No no no, Chris, you like to ask questions, but you don’t like to get answers!” Kerry exclaimed. “Let me answer! Let me answer! Let me finish my answer!”

“Chris, I don’t care how many questions you ask, I’m gonna finish my answer,” America’s top diplomat continued, prompting a wan smile from Wallace.

That guy Kerry is an embarrassment to the nation. It’s hard to believe that anyone with an once of love for this country would hire him to clean swimming pools, much less the important positions he keeps getting.

Nice diplomatic discussion from the nation's Head Diplomat that explains a lot about how we have arrived at the spot we have put ourselves in.

You can tell a lot about a person and their judgment by the kinds of people they hire for responsible positions.

Obama’s signature style is putting incredibly inappropriate, unqualified, incompetent , arrogant and outright weird people who exhibit bizarre behavior into very important, highly visible, positions of high responsibility.

The one common trait in all is an extreme disdain for the United States and utter contempt and border line hatred for average middle class Americans.

Rope-a-dope always gets the unprepared.

Iran’s just stringing Kerry along. We’ll get to November and—oooops, guess what? Either they collapse because Iran has achieved what it needs to develop a nuclear weapon, or they need more time because things look so “hopeful”, and Kerry agrees.

Not really; It's a tied and true technique that all "progressives" learned at the Clinton School of Transparency.

If asked a tough question, change the subject. Or say, "Bush did the same thing." If that doesn't work, there's always... filibuster! Keep talking incoherently until the host can't stand it and tries to move on.

Personally I prefer if the host lets them.
If the viewing audience has an average IQ over 100, they will see through the charade. And the senseless answer played endlessly later is amusing documentation of the technique.
If the viewing audience has an average IQ of under 70, they are viewing a different channel anyway!

My late colleague, Admiral Mark Hill, had a perfect description of him. He would always say of KerrY: "He's an embellisher." And the truth disappears when he compulsively does the embellishing ad nauseam.

The only reason Obama made him SOS is because he’s a traitor. I’ll bet anything he asked Jane Fonda to head the VA, that’s the kind of slimebag we have as POTUS.

What will Kerry have to say when Iran soon detonates their first nuke? Obama of course will give it scant mention and then be off to another fund raiser. The US is the laughing stock of tyrants everywhere with these clowns in charge.

If kerry can’t take the pressure from Chris wallace he has no business being secretary of state. Wallace should have kept interrupting and asking questions. Just talk over kerry’s BS. Kerry never answers any questions. Just spews nonsense.

There was just no end to his filibuster on Meet the Depressed this morning — it was a monotone monologue of the worst sort and no one interrupted him.

I think they all took advantage of the opportunity to go get coffee and go to the bathroom and answer all their emails.

Perhaps it's a Follow The Money thing. Kerry's wife/keeper may have crossed Obama's palm with moolah and there may be other cases too.

Kerry can't take pressure from anyone being the pampered poodle boy he is. Remember when he was running for POTUS all the people who came out saying he always tells them "Do you know who I am?" anytime he has to wait? The valet takes too long to take his car he immediately states "Do you know who I am" or if he has to wait for a table at a restaurant right away he says "Do you know who I am?" He just a pompous coddled b*tch ass poodle boy.

Not really stupid; just not worded well. It was a way of showing my displeasure with the Wallace father/son tradition of propoganda news control they sold as professional interviewing skill. They were (are) both shills for a paycheck.

I said nothing about Fox News. I showed my disdain for the personality and interviewing techniques of both Mike and Chris Wallace.

Disagreement with me is understandable; you have in the past.

Calling a FReeper stupid for posting their opinion is... not...a smart thing to do.

Here's a question, Jean sKerry. Is there a statute of limitations on treason?

American Patriots Against John Kerry

The 1970 meeting that John Kerry conducted with North Vietnamese communists violated U.S. law, according to an author and researcher who has studied the issue.

Kerry met with representatives from “both delegations” (North Vietnamese and Viet Cong) of the Vietnamese in Paris in 1970, according to Kerry’s own testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on April 22, 1971. But Kerry’s meetings with the Vietnamese delegations were in direct violation of laws forbidding private citizens from negotiating with foreign powers, according to researcher and author Jerry Corsi, who began studying the anti-war movement in the early 1970s.

According to Corsi, Kerry violated U.S. code 18 U.S.C. 953. “A U.S. citizen cannot go abroad and negotiate with a foreign power,” Corsi told CNSNews.com.

By Kerry’s own admission, he met in 1970 with delegations from the North Vietnamese communist government and discussed how the Vietnam Warshould be stopped.

I just heard this maniac on MTP getting interviewed by that simian Gregory.

According to Kerry, things have never been better in the world, the USA is negotiating all over the place and getting things done, the Russians are great guys who kept their promise and removed 100% of all chemical weapons from Syria,and the Israelis have a right to defend themselves but of course should accept Egypt's ceasefire if Hamas does.

He's delusional, doesn't comprehend that we have lost Iraq,and that Ukraine would still be sovereign if it wasn't for the idiot dictator in the WH.

No, the only real problem he sees is in the World is Americans who aren't sympathetic to communism.
