Secretary of State John Kerry Brings Dog to Take Your Child to Work Day
Secretary of State John Kerry brought his dog Ben to a State Department Take Your Child to Work Day event.
During the event, Kerry surprised the audience by approaching the podium with his dog on a leash.
“Come on, Ben. Sit. Sit. Sit,” he said, trying to get the one-year-old dog to cooperate.
“There’s one rule in show business: Don’t do anything with kids or animals,” he said sheepishly as he began his press conference. “I’m breaking those rules today big time.”
The dog jumped on Kerry as he spoke.
And he jumped on the interpreter, too.
Kerry remarked that his dog was named for Ben Franklin, who was the first American diplomat.
“He’s actually the diplo-mutt,” he joked, referring to the dog.
