WHOA! EMBARRASSING! US State Dept Reps Caught in Obvious Lie (Video)

We thought we'd seen everything, but this takes the cake, or as Alex Mercouris might say, the biscuit...

If you watch one video this week, make it this one, and watch till the end!  

No matter your country, it's your patriotic duty!

Historians will look back at the November 2, 2015 as turning point in world history.  

On that day the US empire actually imploded, live on TV, for all the world to see, right in the US State Dept briefing room.

Hang on tight, it's going to be quite a ride...

It's hard to impress us hard working men and women at RI.  We've seen A LOT of crazy stuff.  Some of us served in Iraq.  Some of us are highly dangerous foreign intelligence operatives.  But we had to pinch ourselves when we saw this.  This was one for the record books.

First of all, the background:  Geriatric fuzzy-thinking Secretary of State John Kerry recently unceremoniously fired his two devoted spokesgals, Jen Psaki and Marie Harf, for routinely embarrassing their country in front of the world and making a laughing stock of him and all things American.  Even FOX News couldn't resist harping on this.

Then, in an extraordinary act of self-flagellation, somehow, the guy who up till then was the Pentagon spokesman, John Kirby, got their job.  Now this is, um peculiar, because, this guy was almost worse at his job then Psaki / Harf. He really, truly, should not be in this profession. Why?  Cause he's a terrible liar.  Come to think about it, that's to his credit.  He was probably a good ole' boy back at U. of South Florida!, which he almost flunked out of (see 2.14 mark in video below

Kirby gifted us one of our best articles ever back when we were just 1 month old, in October of 2014.  It's thanks to people like John Kirby that RI has become a global media colossus.  Even back then he was in critical need of career advice.  Read all about it:  Watch Pentagon Press Secretary Squirm When Nailed for Bogus Claim, or just watch this video:

John, take it from us, we watch this stuff all day, you are just not cut out for this kind of work.

There is a raging office pool at RI world headquarters on how many months this guy will last.  We can say one thing, it's going to be a real hootenanny!

And then, for an encore, his trusty sidekick Elizabeth Trudeau puts her head on the chopping block for extra credit!

But seriously folks, this is the end.  We Yanks should just roll up our tents and go home.  It's just too depressing to watch.  

This Kirby guy has the rank of an Admiral!  What the Hey?  How does this happen?
