As the ever enraging Orangeutan addressed fake Union Auto workers in Michigan and the also-rans for the Republican Nomination insulted east other, First Lady Jill Biden and President Johnson’s Great Society from the Reagan Library in California, State Anthony Blinken pulled out his Stratocaster and launched the Global Music Diplomacy with Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters in attendance.
Blinken will not be opening for The Rolling Stones anytime soon, but it was a laudable amateur effort:

Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters was there: U.S. Department of State launched the Global Music Diplomacy Initiative, that builds on existing music diplomacy efforts and delivers upon the bipartisan Promoting Peace, Education, and Cultural Exchange (PEACE) Through Music Diplomacy Act

Keep rocking, Mr. Secretary.
