This is further proof that President Joe Biden isn’t just unlucky, he is truly incompetent.

The recent shortage of baby formula has parents across the country panicked but the President says that the only way his administration could have seen this coming was if they were “mind readers.” Well, now Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra says that the Administration was aware of the shortage last year.

According to The Daily Wire:

“From everything I’ve known, the FDA has kept me apprised of this from last year,” he responded on Monday. “We have been moving as quickly as we can.”

Becerra’s remarks made it sound as though the Biden administration knew that this was going to be a problem longer than the president had recently implied.

“I’ll answer the baby formula question because, all of a sudden, it’s on the front page of every newspaper,” Biden said in response to one reporter asking about the emergency. Combined with his mindreader comment, the president gave the impression that the government was taken by surprise by the shortage.

Biden’s own White House website says that on February 17, “the largest infant formula manufacturer in the country—Abbott Nutrition—initiated a voluntary recall of several lines of powdered formula.” The White House claimed the federal government mobilized into action to get baby products onto the market as soon as they became aware it was an issue.

However, other reports claim the baby formula shortage was triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic when many workers either quit or lost jobs and many plants were forced to shutter for medical reasons.

Datasembly recently ran an analysis that showed that supply was relatively stable for the first half of 2021. Then, the out-of-stock rate for baby formula spiked in January 2022 and has continued to climb.

“Inflation, supply chain shortages, and product recalls have brought an unprecedented amount of volatility for baby formula,” Datasembly founder and CEO Ben Reich also said in the report released in April. “We expect to continue to see the baby formula category being dramatically affected by these conditions.”

It seems that despite Biden’s efforts to paint this disaster as something out of the left-field he never could have anticipated the data shows that just isn’t the truth and the Democrat Party will likely pay for it when parents head to the polls.

  1. OK now wait…. why isn’t the Teleprompter Dude sharing the BS script with the rest of the comedians?

  2. A vote for the Biden regime or ANY lefty is a vote to destroy your kids. Whether it be racist criminal CRT being force fed or the repulsive excitement these freaks exhibit when they’re drooling to murder babies in and out of the womb. They want to groom your impressionable children to be queers and indoctrinate them to be self hating bigots.
    Choice is simple.


  4. Anyone out there still not seeing this administration from what it really is, you’re asleep at the wheel and really there’s no hope for you. Every single thing happening in this country right now, but better yet since this administration took office, is absolutely intentional, well planned and to hurt and against the American people!!!
    Period, paragraph THE END!

  5. Biden and those who work with him are nothing but liars and worse — people who don’t care what’s happening, expect for what’s in those issues that they are involved in! This is a disgusting group of so called people who supposedly care about the country and what it needs while at the same time doing the opposite of what the country needs and values!!

  6. Dementia Joe doesn’t know what day it is, but his gay secretary of transportation just said he has plenty of formula for his adoptive babies. Maybe he got it before Joe sent it to border for illegals

  7. If there was a baby food and formula shortage know as much as last year, then why were the shelves fully stocked all of this time? The Democrats and the entire Biden administration are nothing more than domestic Terrorists and they are terrorizing YOU!

  8. So, here we finally have the truth regarding the shortage of baby formula and it’s coming straight from the mouth of Biden’s* HHS Secretary Becerra. Biden’s* administration was well aware of the upcoming shortage last year and did nothing to stop it. And still, they are attempting to force us into believing they are as surprised about the shortage as we are. I’ve been around for over three quarters of a century and this administration is the most corrupt I’ve ever encountered–with the Clinton and Obama administrations running close behind. Yet, there are still amadans out there who will cast their votes for these thugs and then complain when things go wrong. This time however, we are in danger of losing the entire country due to their failures and hoping they will come to their senses is useless because they are the absolute best example of the definition of insanity. With each progressive socialist Democrat administration that gains power, more attempts to institute the same progressive policies are made, over and over again, and each time they expect their “utopian” society to succeed–yet, what they end up with is always a massive disaster which harms We, the People. It’s hard to believe there are still folks out there who continue to sell their votes to them for free government handouts, thus insuring this perverted cycle will continue until our country is lost or the revolution begins.

  9. Bullshit! Stop sending the formula to the border and Ukraine! Simple solution you lying assholes!!!!

  10. Oh YES . . . the old :
    “We’re from the Government and we’re here to help LINE!

    USA, BLESS GOD AGAIN ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    GOD BLESS THE USA ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

  11. The FDA just suspended the rule banning imports of baby formula, which was put into place because of formula containing lead and other poisons coming from China.
    Who owns poppy joe and most of the democrat party?
    Now you know the real reason for the “shortage”! The whole thing was created so the scumbags can poison any babies they did manage to kill in the womb.

  12. Biden lost his mind many years ago. He only knows how to take bribes, payoffs and “political contributions.” Why would anybody who was taught how to think instead of what to think believe he gives a crap about the people who actually make America work?

  13. I’m just surprised joe hadn’t blamed the formula shortage on President Trump. Or the war In Ukraine. How could anyone listen to this moron.
