This past weekend, former Secretary of State John Kerry was practically forced to make some appearances in the media to defend his and former President Obama’s failed policy in Iran.
Kerry didn't handle things very well after he was basically backed into a corner over the comments he made about how terrorists would get some of the money that they gave to Iran. Kerry went mad after he was shown a clip of comments he made back in 2016.
During President Trump's announcement last week, he made the statement that the Iran Nuclear Deal which came about under the Obama Administration helped fund terrorist operations.
“The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration,” said the President.
“Iran’s hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013, and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash. Instead of saying thank you to the United States, they chanted ‘Death to America,’” Trump added.
Margaret Brennan, the host of CBS’s “Face The Nation,” asked Kerry if what President Trump said was true, to which he said that they were a lie. But then Brennan really gets Kerry nerved up after showing a video of him back in 2016 saying that some of the money they will give Iran will end up in the hands of terror organizations and then.
John Kerry gets completely flustered when he is shown a 2016 clip of him saying that he knew that the money Obama administration gave Iran would be used to fund the IRGC.
Notice the lip smacking thing he does when he tries to come up with an explanation.

President Trump must have been watching the show because he ripped into Kerry.
"John Kerry got caught essentially admitting that funds given ridiculously to Iran were used to fund attacks on the USA. Only a complete fool would have given that 150 Billion Dollars Plus to Iran. They then went on a Middle East Rampage! @foxandfriends @PeteHegseth"

The Obama Administration, which includes John Kerry do not have history on their side. The things that they did and said in the past are finally catching up to them.
