Twitter user: ‘Kerry sailed right by me yesterday on the Nantucket sound’ [photo]; Update: Boston Herald confirms Kerry is on Nantucket

And the mystery of Secretary of State John Kerry’s whereabouts yesterday continues!

Last we heard from the State Department, Sec. Kerry arrived in Washington DC yesterday morning at 4 a.m. and worked diligently all day on the situation in Egypt. It is unclear whether the State Department is saying Kerry stayed in DC the entire day or if at some point he traveled to Nantucket. In any case, he was not goofing off on a boat, a State Dept. spokesperson insists.

A number of people, however, say they saw him in the Nantucket marina or Sound on, yes, a boat. There’s the tweet from Sam Hodges, above. And let’s not forget these three tweets, published yesterday:

That’s a total of four tweets saying Kerry was on his boat.

Another possible sighting occurred on land, not far from the marina:

And still another Twitter user said Kerry is rumored to be attending a 4th of July celebration on Nantucket today:

It is possible that all these people are mistaken. Some of the reports are second-hand.

It is also possible that Kerry is on Nantucket but worked the whole time he was there and never set foot on his boat. But why leave DC  just as the situation in Egypt was exploding?

Like we said, the mystery continues.


The Boston Herald has a photo of Kerry on Nantucket today, “after taking  in some 4th of July festivities”:

Secretary of State John Kerry is spending a sun-splashed Fourth of July on Nantucket, even as a chaotic overthrow of the government rocks Egypt and continues to test diplomatic relations in Washington.

Kerry, who has a house and a yacht on the ritzy island getaway, was seen strolling down Federal Street away from July Fourth festivities on Main Street, a source told the Herald.


Another tweeter, surely mistaken, hears that John Kerry is celebrating July 4 in Nantucket

Cavalcade of conflicting info: Where in the world was John Kerry as Egypt lurched into chaos?

With little going on in the world, CBS News producer says Secretary of State John Kerry enjoys quiet time on his yacht; Update: Dept. of State denies

  • Eric Boyer

    Who gives a sh*t? What do you expect the US Secretary of State to do to fix Egypt?

    • sardiverdave

      Fix? Nothing.

      Protect US interests? Quite a bit.

    • SPQR9

      We expect him not to lie to us. But with the Obama administration, that’s too much to ask.

  • Love of Country

    You can’t trust Democrats about anything. You show me someone who wants Fox News off the air and I’ll show you a pathological liar. Derp!

  • John Howard

    No doubt better if he has no direct involvement with Egypt.

    • floridavet

      Precisely! Actually, it would be better for everyone if John Kerry actually remained on his yacht until the end of his tenure.

  • twinx

    “I was working on Egypt all day.” He probably was sitting on a map of Egypt while at the helm, so maybe he isn’t lying… Naw.

    • CatHerder

      He was probably working on his Little Egypt scrapbook.

    • muckraker

      Trying to find it on a map?

    • twolaneflash

      Egypt is one of the most expensive ladies-of-the-evening working the old Kennedy hooker circuit in Massachusetts. I’m sure Lurch got Teresa’s money’s worth.

  • Gpoupa

    We know you don’t care, but would it kill you not to flaunt it?

  • Okie_pastor

    How embarrassing for Kerry! But the white house assures us John Kerry is working SO Hard on the explosive Egyptian situation

    Had a little fun on Twitter yesterday with a hashtag

    These are mine:

    #JohnKerryYachtNames “Swift Yacht”

    #JohnKerryYachtNames”Rotary Stuck”

    #JohnKerryYachtNames “I’m Yacht on My Yacht, I’m in DC”

    #JohnKerryYachtNames”HA, All You Yacht was a Lousy Meeting With Obama”

    And my personal favorite and VERY usable name….”Callin’ It In”

  • Joe W.

    “I’m John Kerry and I am reporting for duty!!!”….Right. The man is useless as teats on a boar.

    • CatHerder

      He meant ‘reporting for ditty’, he loves a good campfire sing-along.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        Reporting for P. Diddy?

    • TocksNedlog

      But enough about his wife …

  • Kurt Cook

    That moron probably thinks Egypt is still ruled by Pharaohs.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      no, he thinks it’s ruled by JEEN-JIZZ Khan.

  • socalcon

    Put Condi in the same scenario, and the Leftys would cry “BS” on the administration

  • Texaswede

    Did he work thrice as hard today?

  • Bill731

    Kerry has probably loved sailing ever since his swift boat days.

  • Buffalobob

    There once was Senator in Nantucket, when told of the riots said fuc& it.

    • Clete Torres

      …he then left DC, went straight to the sea, and trolled ’round the bay in his bucket.

  • Maxx

    Apparently, one of the prerequisites for being a Secretary of State in an Obama administration is to get yourself as far away as you can from breaking news overseas.

    Let’s give old Sen. Foragainst a break. We just caught him in the AGAINST phase of his Morsi cycle.

  • HolyCowRUKiddingme

    What do you expect from — LURCH?
    Another disgrace –
    This administration is worse than ORGANIZED CRIME

  • Bryan

    Like the rest of this corrupt administration they think they didn’t lie. Kerry’s plane touched down yesterday at 4 a.m. They didn’t say he was on it. Technically Kerry could have been working on Egypt all day, just not continuously and probably via teleconference from Nantucket. They did not say Kerry was present personally.

  • tops116

    Guess we know how Kerry would handle his 3 a.m. call now… not that there was really ever any doubt. Eesh, I’m guessing Hillary gave him some pointers before she left.

  • TocksNedlog

    There once was a Lurch from Nantucket . . .

    • Catchance

      …who said of his job: “I’ll just chuck it!
      No one will know,
      I’ll have a bordeaux
      while Egypt burns down; they can **** it.”

  • Bob

    Working on “Egypt.” Maybe that’s an alternate way of pronouncing “Isabel.”

  • Zombie John Gotti

    When he is away on Nantucket, he is still working the phones and doing his job from an alternate location. When President Bush was at his ranch, he was out-of-touch and unable to do his job. At least, that’s the narrative.

  • JustMeDoTGov

    “…since his plane touched down…” They didn’t say HE was on the plane, so the are factually telling the truth (in their twisted political minds). Some of his staff probably flew back. He likely was on the phone as some point during the day while in ‘Tucket….a nice taxpayer funded secure satellite phone so he could talk classified stuff with staff and BHO….for 10 minutes, then off to the yacht, caviar and champagne, before the gourmet BBQ planned that evening.

    Sounds like another purple heart is in order for Lieutenant Kerry!
