State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki tweeted about a fashion column in the aftermath of the MH17 disaster as Americans desperately waited to see if any loved ones were among the 298 dead.

Psaki began her daily briefing with reporters yesterday by talking about the presidential elections in Afghanistan and other State Department business instead of the implications of the Malaysian Airline flight, believed to have been shot down by pro-Russian separatists.

Later that evening, the former Obama 2012 campaign spokeswoman took the time to share an article in the Washington Post from former a White House aide on why she took a job as a contributing editor with Marie Claire magazine.

'Great piece by former colleague Alyssa Mastromonaco who defines smart, savvy and fashionable,' Psaki tweeted.

Conservative news aggregation site Twitchy criticized Psaki after the tweet with post on how the 'children' have taken over at State.

'With a Malaysian airliner shot down and Israel launching a land, sea and air incursion into Gaza, the timing would seem poor, if it weren’t such a great piece in the Washington Post,' the publication sarcastically said.

The only plane-related tweet had Psaki sent from her official State Department Twitter account as of Friday morning was from nearly 24 hours ago.

'On reports of tragic Malaysian plane crash: at this time US do not have any confirmation of cause, individuals on plane or any addl details,' Psaki said on twitter a little after noon on Thursday.

After Psaki began her briefing yesterday by talking about everything but the Malaysian Airlines plane, Fox News host Shep Smith said it was 'highly inappropriate' for the State Department official to kick off her briefing by discussing 'routine matters.'

'I can’t believe what just happened,' he said to Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffen. .

Very telling.

All libs, Rats, Commies, etc., are like this gal.

Nihilistic, take nothing seriously, nothing has value, nothing is ever important, nothing is deserving of respect or even contemplation.

They are true postmodern soulless atheists, blobs of flesh without any purpose or perception.

They are subhuman.

Even sub-animal, because many animals have purpose, meaning, intelligence, motivation, willingness to contribute.

These POSs have nothing, give nothing, are nothing.

There was no plane crash, there was an act of war! The plane and its crew were functioning just fine up to that point.

If anyone listened to her you would have thought she knew nothing, saw nothing and could tell nobody anything about what happened.

Oh wait, she works for the mac daddy lying administration - never mind she will have more to say after they read about it in the newspaper.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki is operating way, way ,way above her pay grade.

If this news conference was help by a little first grade girl in a pink dress and a bow in her hair at least she would be easy on the eyes, not expected to know anything about the plane being blown out of the sky, would bring smiles to the faces of those in attendance and would have been happy to be there for the price of a cookie and we would know as much as jen told us.
