Kerry To Bereaved Parents Of Fallen Max Steingberg [sic]: Hows 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.

Please tell me this is satire. “Sorry to hear about your dead kid, but let’s talk about ME!”

John Kerry on Wednesday paid a shiva call

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.

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

This putz is as bad as - or worse than - Biden.

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

How’s your day ?

Kerry was in Vietnam?

I doubt it. He'd have said something about it by now.
