‘Jen Psucky’: Blue-checks drag Jen Psaki over her tone-deaf tweet on DC stores and restaurants closing ahead of the snowstorm

With a major snowstorm hitting DC right now, White House press secretary Jen Psaki wondered why stores and restaurants were closing ahead of the storm:

Growing up in the northeast I will never understand the closing of stores and restaurants when there is barely an inch of snow on the ground yet.

Is it the ice? We think it may be because of the ice on the roads:

This is another crash Virginia State Police says they responded to this morning on 195 in Richmond. They are advising drivers to use caution while on the roads.

Here’s what it looked like an hour after she it send:

As a matter of fact, at about the same time as Psaki was sending those words of wisdom, officials in DC were begging people to get off the roads:

If you can, stay off the roads! During snow events it’s best to stay off the roads. Fewer cars on the roads allows our crews space to pretreat and plow. It also helps our crews clear the roadways as quickly as possible. pic.twitter.com/IvOZuSCuUc

And what’s even funnier is how quickly blue-checks have turned on her. Maybe they’re as tired of her spin as we are?

I find it embarrassing that the White House press secretary is doing this very tired take. https://t.co/jgHfyYIGLa

I am starting to wonder if @jrpsaki is a psy op sent to ruin the Democrats’ re-election chances and generally destabilize the republic https://t.co/9sNvar3aU0

Absolutely perfect self-own from an administration that’s becoming known for self-ownage https://t.co/TzQpC8OdEy

People die in horrid car accidents here because our roads are not salted + there are not enough plows when it does snow more. Sit down. https://t.co/0bhMelQ4vv

Quite the statement to make just two weeks after hundreds of working people, including federal employees, were stranded overnight on an icy highway https://t.co/t6RoMyGN9r

That is because you don’t understand public infrastructure 🙂 https://t.co/ioFVXpyt25

Because a temporary pause in normal activity literally saves lives, it’s basic public health.

(Yes, yes, I know the Biden @WhiteHouse has made clear their only familiarity with the concept is as a target for sarcastic derision.) https://t.co/miEtPiOha3

OK so now I understand why they didn’t just send everyone free Covid tests and N95s immediately https://t.co/fku6kO4P7G

Gosh, this woman is obsessed with telling us she doesn’t care about workers. https://t.co/DVwpFFDr7D

It’s been like all of two weeks since a sitting Senator was trapped on a highway overnight because he was out commuting in a winter storm. https://t.co/OsAHzQYlkI
