John Kerry Flustered After Proof That Billions Would Fund Iranian Armed Forces

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

John Kerry went on Face The Nation to “tout” Biden’s foreign policy abilities. Kerry believes that Biden should be President because of his “successful” foreign policy record.

Here is the problem, Biden has a terrible foreign policy record, and Iran is just one in a line of failures.

Kerry admitted back in 2016 to CNBC that the money from the deal would go to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

Kerry to CNBC after being asked about how Iran would spend the money: “I think that some of it will end up in the hands of the IRGC or of other entities -some of them are labeled terrorists.”

Here are Trump’s tweets:

Donald Trump tweeted calling out John Kerry and the Obama administration on their complete failure of a deal. The money given to Iran, funded radical terrorism throughout the middle east. It’s pretty clear that before this deal the sanctions put on Iran had crippled their economy. The money released to Iran in the form of secret pallets of cash and sanction relief boosted their ability to extend the arm of terrorism throughout the region.

John Kerry looks like a deer in headlight after Margaret Brennan shows him his own words in 2016.

“Righ now we are not seeing the early delivery of funds going to that kind of endeavor at this point in time. I am sure at some point, some of it will.”

His response to Brennan’s question as to why he would risk funding a terrorist organization was “You know that the President’s tweet is a lie.” “You and the media need to call a lie, a lie.”

Margaret Brennan did not back down. She asked John Kerry back in 2015 before Trump took office why they would risk giving Iran all this money knowing that it would be used to fund terrorism in the region. She let him know that this issue was addressed a year before Trump took office.

They all knew that giving any money to Iran would be used to fund the IRGC. You see Kerry knows that “IRGC has never had a problem getting money, Margaret.”

That was so condescending, like how dare Margaret go against their talking point. If Trump had talked to Margaret Brennan in that way, EVERYONE would be calling him a condescending clog in the patriarchy meant to keep women submissive. John Kerry gets a pass because he is Obama’s buddy.

John Kerry’s defense for allowing the US to fund terrorism is: well Trump tweeted so you would ask me this question, and why aren’t you calling him a liar. Kerry expected to go and have his handheld and be told he was amazing and that his deal was just the epitome of what foreign policy should look like with Iran.

The reality was that it showed on a liberal network that the deal funded terrorism, and never should have been allowed to happen. Kerry had a hard time understanding why she wouldn’t just let him blame Trump.
