Secretary of State John Kerry gave a “major speech” Wednesday on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in which he defended the Obama Administration’s decision to allow the U.N. Security Council to pass a resolution condemning Israeli settlement activity, and warned that Israel’s democracy was at stake.

Kerry’s speech was preceded by one of President-elect Donald Trump’s signature Twitter tirades blasting the Obama administration’s “total disdain and disrespect” toward Israel.

Observers on both sides of the aisle panned Kerry’s speech on social media. Conservatives were particularly upset about his harsh (and dishonest) rhetoric towards Israel.

Even Kerry supporters who liked the speech were left wondering: What’s the point?

Seriously, though, what was the point?

The speech also served as a reminder that John Kerry is one weird looking dude.

Kerry does not seem phased by the criticism, however, or the fact that he’s only going to be the secretary of state for about three more weeks. He plans to go “full-f***ing throttle” until his last day, whatever that means.

Full. F***ing. Throttle.
