Howie Carr: John Kerry’s jet-setting heats up House session
- July 14, 2023
Boy, did the United States dodge a bullet in 2004 when John Forbes Kerry was not elected president. That’s my takeaway from the testimony yesterday of the “climate czar” under oath in front of a Congressional committee.
And what about the private jets? That’s what those bourgeois Republican parvenus wanted to ask him about.
“We don’t own a private jet. I don’t own a private jet. I’ve never personally owned a private jet,” he said.
“My family owned a plane,” he corrected, as he so often has. Pressed on the question, Kerry elaborated.
“My wife owned a plane.”
As the GOP congressmen kept reminding Kerry, he was under oath. I think they got the blue-blooded Brahmin on two counts of perjury right there, just about the Flying Squirrel.
Is it not true, Mr. Kerry, that the Gulfstream GIV-SP in question was in fact owned by your second wife’s first husband’s trust fund?
Then somebody asked him how many times he’s flown on a private jet since he got this latest phony-baloney job.”
Again, Mr. Secretary, I must remind you that you are under oath.
