What can I say? It’s a slow news day.
US Secretary of State John Kerry broke his leg in a bike crash Sunday, apparently after hitting a curb while taking a break after talks in Geneva, Switzerland
The diplomat was biking near Scionzier, France before the accident, which caused him to scrap the rest of a four-nation trip that included an international conference on combating the Islamic State group.
Kerry, 71, was in stable condition and in good spirits as he prepared to return to Boston for further treatment with the doctor who previously operated on his hip, US State Department spokesman John Kirby said.
He said X-rays at a Swiss hospital confirmed that Kerry fractured his right femur in the 9.40am incident.
“The secretary is stable and never lost consciousness, his injury is not life-threatening and he is expected to make a full recovery,” Kirby said in a statement.
John Forbes Kerry has once again sustained a wound in service of his country. He is conscious, and it’s probably not serious enough to cause his fake JFK accent to kick in, but it does go to show that even the most luxurious all-expenses-paid duty in service of ones country can be hazardous.
But John Kerry was once again present for duty.
In the Alps.
On a bicycle.
In a ridiculous looking Speedo… and his Wile E. Coyote Roadrunner helmet.
