John Kerry Broke His Leg While Bike Riding

From Fox News:

John Kerry flown to Swiss hospital after bike crash | Toronto Star

Secretary of State John Kerry suffered a broken leg in a bike crash outside Geneva Sunday, where he had been holding nuclear talks with Iran’s foreign minister. Kerry was transported to Geneva’s main hospital HUG, where he was being evaluated, Kirby said. Paramedics and a physician were on the scene with his motorcade at the time. A paramedic immediately examined Kerry after his bike apparently hit a curb, causing the fall, Kirby said.

Secretary of State John Kerry breaks leg in bike crash, ends overseas ...State Department spokesman John Kirby said Kerry never lost consciousness and is in good spirits. X-rays at the Swiss hospital confirmed that Kerry fractured his right femur. The accident occurred near Scionzier, France, outside the Swiss border.

Kerry called off the rest of his four-nation trip and will fly back to Boston for further treatment. In a statement Sunday, the State Department said although not medically required to do so, Kerry will fly on a medical aircraft to “ensure he remains comfortable and stable.”

Ending the trip means Kerry is skipping meetings with Spanish leaders and a conference in Paris on fighting the Islamic State terror group.

Kerry’s cycling rides have become a theme of his diplomatic journeys, often taking his bike with him on the plane.

During discussions in late March and early April between world powers and Iran, he took several bike trips during breaks in the negotiations. Those talks were held in Lausanne, Switzerland, and led to a framework agreement.

Kerry met Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif for six hours in a Geneva hotel Saturday as the sides now work to seal a comprehensive accord by June 30.


Okay, how in the world do you fall off a bike and break a femur? He was on a city street, not going down a mountain.

John Kerry Funny Face

If he rides like he catches, it’s no wonder he broke a leg. John, you have to keep your eyes open.

Talk about the royalty treatment – who has a paramedic follow them around when riding a bicycle? Did George Bush have one with him when he went off-road with the wounded warriors? One year, he fell off and scraped his leg pretty bad, so did he get med-evac flown out with a paramedic at his side? No, he did not.

Someone enlighten me here, because I don’t know what ‘further treatment’ one needs after breaking a leg. The doctor says it’s broken,  an assistant or a nurse wraps it up, puts a brace on it and instructs you not to put weight on it for x number of weeks. That’s it.

What a perfect excuse to end his tour and avoid talking to the French who are demanding proof of inspections before they agree to a deal with Iran.

A few of the comments from Fox’ post…

Reachout2015 said – NTSB has subpoenaed the curb for futher investigation

wayne62 – I thought you shot a horse when it broke it’s leg?

Anders123 – It was a sniper…Brian Williams saw it all…

UcanKeepUrPlan – Cut him some slack people. This man was appointed for his ability to back peddle. He’s not accustomed to moving forward.

Personally, I was wondering if Harry Reid would loan Kerry his exercise equipment for his physical therapy.

  1. Kerry hit the curb fell and broke his leg. That is exactly what is happening to his support for the Islamic radical policies of Obama’s administration.

    Boltneck must have been an Israeli curb…

    The fact that he got flown out on a medivac plane is amazing. I wonder how many millions that cost.

  3. Crawfish says:

    a) He has spent more time in the hospital for this than he did for his 3 Purple Hearts combined.
    b) Jen Psaki says he will continue negotiating. He is on heavy painkillers, and he wants to continue negotiating. This might explain the Iran deal. Just sayin’….

    Quick, someone, nominate John Kerry for another Purple heart. After all, he did serve in Vietnam.

    As always, this group of nimrods is quick to lay blame anywhere but on their own failings. Lurch was cycling just like he negotiates with those who would destroy us — plowing along with head down, dangers be damned, oblivious to all but his own momentum. Yet, according to State spokesfolk, Kerry was hurt because “his bike apparently hit a curb.” BAD, bike!

    • Kathy says:

      Exactly, Salty. If he can screw up a bike ride like this, just imagine how screwed up those negotiations are.

    You guys are being so unfair.

    Iron John didn’t hit that pesky curb, his BIKE did!

    Mark my words, Iron John (who served in Viet Nam) will try, through some bureaucratic manipulation, to get another Purple Heart. Rumors have been rampant that he’s already applied for a fourth PH for a nasty paper cut he got while shuffling papers – he was turned down.

    I also heard that his bike had to be put down since he believed that it “went rogue” and deliberately caused his accident. He viewed the “accident” as a sort of fragging incident.

    I believe that the country owes the bicycle a debt of gratitude since the accident will prevent Iron John from screwing up our foreign policy any more than he already has – at least for a while.
