Greg Gutfeld Shreds John Kerry; Tweets Video Of James Taylor Singing

Late Saturday night former Secretary of State John Kerry sent out a tweet laying into President Trump for not attending a scheduled veterans day event, due to weather conditions.

“President @realDonaldTrump a no-show because of raindrops?” Kerry wrote to the president after he had to miss an event for fallen soldiers in France. “Those veterans the president didn’t bother to honor fought in the rain, in the mud, in the snow – & many died in trenches for the cause of freedom. Rain didn’t stop them & it shouldn’t have stopped an American president.”

Less than an hour following Kerry’s tweet, Co-Host of Fox New’s “The Five” Greg Gutfeld decided to weigh in.

Gutfeld who is known for his serious and at times comical presentation of the News said, “U didn’t stop ISIS. you sent James Taylor. Plug your knothole, Captain Driftwood.”

Kerry swiftly responded to Gutfeld tweeting, “Happy Veterans Day, Greg. I’m glad that all of us who served in uniform fought to defend your freedom to be a complete fool on Twitter.”

Following Kerry’s tweet, Gutfeld seemingly got the last laugh, posting a comment-less tweet with a YouTube clip of James Taylor singing “You’ve Got A Friend.”

As noted by, Carmine Sabia of The Federalist, the tweet was a mocking reference to former President Obama sending Kerry and Taylor to France to perform the song after the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack in 2015.

It was supposed to be a way to make up for the fact that other nations sent their top politicians to a memorial march for the victims and the United States did not.

AN excerpt from The Guardian explains the story in more detail:

“I wanted to tell you personally of the horror, the revulsion all Americans felt at that cowardly and despicable act against innocent victims and fundamental values,” Kerry said.

He then went on to explain that he couldn’t make it on Sunday because of a prearranged trip to India.

And then he had James Taylor sing You’ve Got a Friend.

Really: in the wake of a major terrorist attack, as a way of showing support for a traumatized country and its traumatized president, the United States secretary of state scheduled a private James Taylor concert.
