John Kerry Sails During Crisis, Sparking #JohnKerryYachtNames

Why is it that our leaders are never there when you really need them?

The Romans experienced this when Emperor Nero fiddled while Rome burned.

We experienced this on September 11th, 2012, when President Obama went nighty-night while our consulate in Benghazi was attacked and four Americans were killed.

Now, it appears that Secretary of State John Kerry is following suit. This past Wednesday, while Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was being removed from power by the nation’s armed forces in a military coup, Secretary Kerry decided that the time was right for an afternoon cruise on his 76-foot yacht.

CBS producers happened to spot Kerry cruising off Nantucket Island and tweeted about it:

The State Department, of course, vehemently denied that Kerry was on his boat while the nation of Egypt was in the midst of a regime change:

The dogged CBS producers refused to budge, doubling down on their claim of Kerry’s whereabouts during the crisis.

Then, pictures of the former Massachusetts Senator began to surface:

Kerry spokesperson: “Any report or tweet that he was on a boat is completely inaccurate.”

Eventually, the State Department had to concede that Secretary John Kerry was indeed yachting while Cairo was burning:


Said State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki of the situation:

While he was briefly on his boat on Wednesday, Secretary Kerry worked around the clock all day including participating in the President’s meeting with his national security council.

The Twitterverse responded with the appropriate level of snarkiness. People began to tweet with the hashtag #JohnKerryYachtNames, proposing new monikers for the hard-working Secretary’s pleasure boat . Below are some of the more hilarious tweets:
