Talk about a weak-kneed response.
Leading from behind is one thing, but when Iran detained ten U.S. sailors for “trespassing” into Iranian waters, Secretary of State John Kerry’s response was to post a message on social media about cheese — sort of.

Fortunately, the story had a happy ending, with The New York Times reporting early Wednesday that “Iran has released two United States Navy patrol boats and 10 crew members.”
AFTER the sailors “apologized,” according to Iranian state-run news channel IRINN.
Nevertheless, social media users couldn’t get over Kerry’s initial response. The best reaction was from a user who asked: “[H]ow much fondue does a big block of cheese make when melted by an Iranian nuke?”
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
