I usually don’t think of John Kerry as having a sense of humor and saying anything funny. However, I nearly fell out of my chair laughing when I heard the surprising news story on TV. Bitterly funny for being disturbingly close to a new implied truth. His purpose was to bash Trump, regarding the bizarre unfolding drama involving Russia and the Trump administration – previously the Trump campaign and Election 2016. Each day it gets higher and deeper.
Various news sources have reported: Former Secretary of State John Kerry took some light-hearted and more serious jabs at President Donald Trump during a commencement address at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, including allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Kerry returned to Massachusetts, the state he represented in the US Senate for 28 years, to address graduates of the prestigious Cambridge school. As with most commencement speeches, he offered the new alumni some advice. “I’m often asked what the secret is to have a real impact on government,” he said. “Well, it’s recently changed. I used to say, either run for office or get a degree from Harvard Kennedy School. With this White House I’d say, buy a Rosetta Stone and learn Russian,” he joked. The audience cheered.
