Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton took to the airwaves this morning on Blaze radio affiliate, AM 700 KSEV in Houston and blasted President Obama’s foreign policy record. Bolton had plenty to say about Secretary of State John Kerry’s puzzling comments that compared U.S. ally, the Jewish state of Israel, to the old racist South African policy of “apartheid.”
Some of the Ambassador’s strongest condemnations came from the revelation that State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki, in response to continued belligerence from Russia in Ukraine, took to twitter to partake in “hashtag diplomacy.”

Bolton said of the tweeting, “I love children, I just don’t think they should be in charge of foreign policy” Leading Democrats didn’t hesitate to come out hard against Kerry’s insane apartheid gaffe. California Senator Barbara Boxer slammed Kerry’s comments as “nonsensical.”
Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and any linkage between Israel and apartheid is nonsensical and ridiculous. — Sen. Barbara Boxer (@SenatorBoxer) April 28, 2014
Congressman Steve Israel took his criticism a step further saying Kerry was “painfully wrong.”
