John Kerry Brings Along James Taylor To Repair Relations With France


(PCM) The utter cheesiness of this move is enough to make me cringe. It has been revealed that Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to France to offer his condolences and repair relations with the nation and also happened to bring singer James Taylor along to acoustically perform “You’ve Got A Friend”. I don’t know, but if I were France I would be pretty insulted by this move, as it is a pretty pathetic attempt to smooth over world relations with a cheesy song and a few strategic hugs. It is hilarious that the U.S. would think that this move somehow makes up for our failure to show up and support last week’s anti-terrorism rally of world leaders that took place in France after the recent attacks that have taken place in the country.

In fact this is not the first time that the U.S. government has put Mr. James Taylor to use for smoothing over political relationships. Taylor was brought in to perform “You’ve Got A Friend” during German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit to the White House back in 2011.
