John Kerry leaves jaws on the floor with ‘make up’ stunt in France – hint, it involves singer James Taylor!

t’s hard to imagine what could strike more fear into the hearts of Islamic terrorists than a love ballad.

At least that’s what the Obama administration must have been thinking when they sent Secretary of State John Kerry to France with singer James Taylor Friday.

Kerry met with French President Francois Hollande to express solidarity with France in the wake of the horrific Islamic terror attacks in recent weeks and to try to make amends for America’s glaring and embarrassing absence from the Paris unity march.

And in the moment that surely sent terrorist groups running for cover and cowering in fear, Secretary Kerry brought out famed crooner James Taylor to sing his hit “You’ve Got A Friend.”

Prior to the trip Kerry described the meeting as a big hug.

“My visit to France is basically to share a big hug for Paris and express the affection of the American people for France and for our friends there who have been through a terrible time,” he said.

Kerry also said he had no intention of apologizing for the lack of a prolific American presence at the Paris unity march.

The French foreign minister however, said that Kerry did apologize for the perceived snub while the Secretary of State continued to try to explain it away to reporters.

“Our Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland was there and marched, our ambassador was there and marched,” Kerry said. “Many people from the embassy were there and marched.”

President Hollande and Kerry also expressed unity in the face of the global threat of radical Islamic terror — even though the administration can’t bring themselves to say that.

“You’ve been victims yourself of an exceptional terrorist attack on September 11. You know what it means for a country,” Hollande said. “We must find together appropriate responses.”

Perhaps starting with something stronger than a love song would be more effective.

Not surprisingly the Twitterverse had a field day with this.

Not to mention that awkward monument where Kerry looked like he was going to kiss the French President.
