Awkward and Mortifying: Lurch In Paris

proxy (1)

 

How badly did the Obama administration fumble this week? So bad that the always awkward Lurch was dispatched to France to set things “right.” God help us.

Awkward doesn’t even begin to describe this, via The Daily Mail: He gave France a hug… and a kiss… and a VERY awkward rendition of ‘You’ve Got a Friend’: Grovelling Kerry cuddles up to Hollande and even flies in James Taylor to make up for terror march snub:

A grovelling John Kerry hugged and kissed French president Francois Hollande in a show of contrition after nobody important from the White House joined a solidarity march in the wake of the terror attack on Paris.

The Secretary of State even brought back-up for his visit in the form of singer James Taylor, who patched up the United States’s oldest diplomatic relationship with a rendition of ‘You’ve got a friend’.

Arriving at the presidential Elysée Palace, Kerry reached out his hands for Hollande, embraced him closely, then appeared to kiss him on the cheek.

Could this administration be any more mortifying?

Reactions from aghast Twitter users were swift.
