Kerry To Bereaved Parents Of Fallen Max Steingberg [sic]: ‘How’s Your Day?’
Jewish Political Updates blog ^ | July 23 2014 | Jacob Kornbluh

Posted on 07/23/2014 2:11:42 PM PDT by PoloSec

Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday paid a shiva call to the parents of Max Steinberg, a Los Angeles native IDF soldier who was killed Sunday in Gaza, at the Crowne Palza hotel in Jerusalem.

“It’s just a huge statement about a young guy finding a place that he was so passionate about, and giving his all, putting himself on the line,” Kerry told the Steinbergs. “It’s an amazing story.”

“How’s your day?” Kerry asked them as he sat down, according to The Jewish Journal. “How’s your day?” Evie Steinberg asked back. “My day’s going better than yours,” he said.

“I am so honored to be here. I am in awe of your son, truly,” Kerry told the family. “And I think you know, I served in the military, and I have great respect for anybody who… especially puts themself willingly in harm’s way. And as an American, we’re so proud of the affection that he felt, just the love he felt, and the roots he found in this country.”

U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, accompanying Kerry, added, “There’s no greater manifestion of the bond between our countries than an American citizen putting himself in harm’s way to defend Israel.”

According to the Los Angeles Jewish Journal, “Kerry entered and exited the room swiftly, surrounded by men in black and refusing to take any questions from press.”

Just another classless, incompetent Democrat. What an embarrassment on the International stage.

” I served in the military”

Glad he cleared that up. There might be few people left that don’t know he was in Vietnam.

What's that? Different from a phone call?

How was your day? I can tell him how my day was. Having a traitor as President and a traitor as Secretary of state really SUCKS.

Naturally, he uses this tragic event to remind them that he served in the military.

How’s your day ?

Kerry is and always has been a pr*t. He is the quintessential narcissist. He is of average intelligence but pretends to more.

“And I think you know, I served in the military...”

Served? I guess that’s what he calls it. Those who served while he was with them have made statements about this.

Who confirmed this guy’s post to Secretary of State, anyway?

Boehner and company had better be gone after the midterms!

The Odumbo administration is a collection of social misfits who blame America for their lack of basic integration into the human family. Who would want to be around this bunch?

He is of average intelligence but pretends to more.

Congressman BillyBob (FReeper since deceased) attended Yale with Kerry. He would assure you that the above is a gross over-statement of Kerry's intelligence and a pronounced under-statement of his self-regard.

He is a most unlikable buffoon.
