John Kerry uses O.J. Simpson to slam President Trump

Why would we expect anything better from Kerry?

Former Secretary of State John Kerry joined the chorus of naysayers blasting President Donald Trump for withdrawing from the Paris climate accord, and attempted to analogize the chief executive to O.J. Simpson.

“When Donald Trump says to the world, well we’re going to negotiate a better deal…he’s going to go out to find a better deal?” the failed presidential candidate and former Massachusetts senator said on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”

“That’s like O.J. Simpson saying he’s going to go out and find the real killer,” Kerry continued, referring to Simpson’s 1995 pledge to find the person who killed Ron Goldman and his former wife Nicole Brown.

Although a jury found the former NFL star and actor not guilty in 1995 on the criminal charge resulting from their brutal murder, a judge later found him liable for damages in a subsequent civil case.

Kerry obviously doesn’t understand “The Art of the Deal.” Deals are negotiated; one doesn’t “go out and find a better deal.” That’s probably why his negotiation of the Iran nuke deal was so one-sided: Iran got everything it wanted and gave up nothing in return. Kerry continued:

“Everybody knows he isn’t going to do that because he doesn’t believe in it, because if he did believe in it, you wouldn’t pull out of Paris.”

No one said Trump doesn’t believe in climate change — only that the United States shouldn’t be the one footing the bill for everyone else.

If Kerry didn’t understand this, there were plenty of folks on social media who did.

Another person recalled this less-than-stellar Kerry moment while he served as secretary of state.

Following the Obama administration’s dismal lack of participation in the Paris unity march against Islamic terrorism two years ago, Kerry trotted out has-been singer-songwriter James Taylor to perform “You’ve Got A Friend” for then-French President Francois Hollande.

That’s not how deals are made either.
