On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer raised questions about what sort of impact the fact that Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter is married to an Iranian-American man might have had on his ability to effectively negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran.
“Who knows what kind of impact that would have on John Kerry,” Fischer said. “I think that’s a legitimate question … If you take an unpopular position on contemporary issue, it could cost you in terms of relationships with members of your own immediate and extended family. There may be a pretty severe price to pay and some people may say, ‘Look, I don’t want to take that chance, I don’t want to take that position because I could have people in my own family turn on me, reject me and I don’t want to take that risk.'”
If the media is going to cover the fact that Donald Trump’s sons engage in big game hunting, Fischer said, then “they certainly ought to at least be raising questions about the fact that Kerry has an in-law who is Iranian.”
