As reporters, bloggers and commentators held back on opinion and speculation in the immediate aftermath of the disappearance of flight Egypt Air MS804 one man with a big mouth could not wait to share his view.
Presumptive Republican nominee Donald J Trump excels at running off at the mouth and as loved ones and colleagues await news of the 66 people on board MS804 missing but feared dead Trump has been quick to cite terrorism as the cause of the presumed crash.
Officials have said it is too soon to say what caused the plane to vanish from radar as it flew over the Med. The investigation could take a year.
But it is never too soon for Trump to try for political opportunism.
Forget the fact that 66 people are missing presumed dead and their loved ones are anxious and heartbroken.
Trump has already said the disappearance of the plane was due to an act of terrorism.
On Twitter The Trump tweeted "Looks like yet another terrorist attack. Airplane departed from Paris. When will we get tough, smart and vigilant? Great hate and sickness!"
The Daily Mirror reports Friday "Trump was blasted by Hillary Clinton, who said the billionaire businessman is dangerously unpredictable and not qualified to be president."
Trump has certainly shown himself to be a big mouth, unpredictable, divisive, racist, sexist and more but how much is cast in stone and how much is an act to appeal to voters is not clear.
While that descriptive list would and should discourage many voters it seems to have mass appeal to some.
Friday after Trump's 'act of terrorism' assertion we can add insensitive to his CV if it is not already a feature.
Presidents and Prime Ministers need to be diplomatic to say the least.
Trump it seems fails on every level and yet could in theory be the next elected President of the USA-electing such a man would surely be an 'act of terrorism' on a grand scale?
Latest on the missing plane Friday: There are reports of oil, plane wreckage and body parts spotted as the search goes on.
Egypt Air flight MS804 disappeared off the radar in the late hours of Wednesday night or very early hours of Thursday morning.
The plane, an Airbus A320, carrying 66 people was en route from Paris to Cairo and over the Mediterranean Sea when it "vanished"; two infants, a child and one Briton are among the missing. The passengers however were multi-national.
Contact with radar was lost above the Mediterranean Sea at about 175 miles, or 280km, from the Egyptian seacoast.
Ten crew members were on board, three of whom were security personnel. That according to the French Transport Minister is usual practice.
Relatives of those missing are gathering at the Charles de Gaulle airport in France and at Cairo International airport, Egypt, as they wait any news.
The Guardian reports "The Egyptian aviation ministry has announced a press conference due to take place at 1.30pm local time (11.30am GMT)
There has been some confusion and speculation about what happened to MS804 which has been described in some cases as misinformation.
The Egyptian military have refuted claims of a distress call.
EASA the European Aviation Safety Agency tweeted 30 minutes ago "Aware of the media reports concerning Egypt Air flight #MS804. No further Information at this stage. Following the developments very closely".
News sources are avoiding speculation at this time.
