Addressing Georgetown University alumni, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken stated that if he had a guitar, he would sing a song by an American singer Taylor Swift “We are never ever getting back together” and shone it to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin.
So, Blinken laughed off questions about relations with the Russian side.
“Unfortunately, my team did not allow me to bring my guitar to dedicate the song “We are never ever getting back together” (We will never be together again. — Note. ed.) to President Putin,” Blinken said.
However, later the Secretary of State made a reservation that such an act would become undiplomatic and “criminal”. And I was glad that I still came without a guitar.
“By the way, since when did the word “cringe” (a verb meaning “to cringe, feel awkward” – Note. ed.) has become an adjective?” Blinken summed up.
