The State Department made social media history on Thursday night — embarrassing, cringeworthy history — with ridiculous hashtag diplomacy.
The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has taken to using the Obama admin’s #UnitedForUkraine hashtag.
When State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki responded with her worthless “hope” that the Kremlin “will live by the promise of hashtag,” the Twitterverse fulfilled its standing promise of ridicule by Photoshop.
Yes. Evidently the plan is to bring Putin to his knees with weapons-grade idiocy, selfies and hashtag sorcery.
Is it possible Psaki’s Twitter account was hacked? Unlikely. As John Hayward notes at Human Events, Psaki said something similar at a press briefing: “I don’t think they’re living by their hashtag.”
It’s a clown admin, bro.
