Glenn Beck railed against the State Department on Monday for repeatedly denying that Sec. of State John Kerry was on his boat while the political crisis in Egypt unfolded last week.
When photographs of Kerry aboard his boat in Nantucket emerged, the State Dept. released a new statement about the secretary's whereabouts. "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," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
Beck was so unenthused by the State Department repeatedly denying that Kerry was on his boat, that he said he wondered if Kerry's wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, was really in the hospital. Heinz Kerry was hospitalized in critical condition on Sunday but her condition has since been upgraded to "fair."
"Instead of telling you the truth, [the government] says [Kerry] is definitely not on his boat," Beck said. "Until the pictures actually show up and then, 'Okay, he was on his boat.' And you expect me to believe that Mrs. Ketchup is in critical condition? I mean no offense, maybe she is."
