[Ed. – Heavy on symbolism]
Secretary of State John Kerry is in France today to “share a big hug” with Paris after the United States skipped the unity march attended by over a million people and the leaders of over 40 nations. As part of his serious, diplomatic snuggle fest, Kerry brought in James Taylor to woo Parisians with a live performance of “You’ve Got A Friend.”
Thi led to immediate mockery on Twitter, of course. As diplomatic overtures go, arranging an impromptu concert during a cuddle mission isn’t America’s proudest moment, but we have to admit it’s not the first time Taylor has been tapped for an event of great international importance.
