Tweet of the Day: Snarky Obama disciple Jen Psaki posts selfie to show solidarity with Ukraine

“Russian leader Vladmir Putin sent in troops and tanks to invade neighboring Ukraine and the Obama administration is coming to the rescue with … selfies!” quips the New York Post.

The reference is a to a tweet posted on Thursday by Obama protégé Jan Psaki, whose ever-present smirk was the subject of a January post. Here was her message:


It’s hard to know what the point of this dopey Twitter message was. In it Psaki flashes a broad grin and a thumbs-up for the citizens of Ukraine who, in her world, merited nothing better than a hand-scribbled sign as a show of American solidarity.

Needless to say, the mindless gesture was received with the disdain it richly deserved. Tweeter Matt Dawson responded by writing:


George Eliseo tweeted:


Psaki, not knowing when to quit (another trait she must have learned from her boss) defended her photo:

The people of Ukraine are fighting to have their voices heard and the benefit of communicating over social media is it sends a direct message to the people that we are with them, we support their fight, their voice and their future.

She also promised that the next time she tweets a selfie in which she is holding a sign, it will printed by a professional sign maker. (No, not really.)
