Biden Admits When He Learned of Baby Formula Crisis–By Then it Was Too Late


President Biden says he wasn’t made aware of how serious the baby formula shortage was until April, and by then it was too late.

The President claimed he wasn’t briefed on the crisis even as company executives said Wednesday that they had known about the “general impact” the mid-February shutdown of Abbott Nutrition’s Michigan production plant would have on the U.S. supply immediately.

Fox News reports:

“Well, here’s the deal.  I became aware of this problem some time in — after April — in early April, about how intense it was,” he continued. “And so, we did everything in our power from that point on, and that’s all I can tell you right now.  And we’re going to continue to do it until we get the job done.”

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre couldn’t explain the delay in making Biden aware of the shortage but said that since he was informed he’s worked to address the problem.

“We have been doing this whole of government approach since the recall,” Jean-Pierre said. “We have been working on this for months, for months. We have been taking this incredibly seriously.”

The press secretary added that the president was satisfied with how the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has handled the response, although FDA Commissioner Robert Califf told lawmakers last week that the agency’s response was “too slow” and that there were “suboptimal” decisions made.

The White House’s “Operation Fly Formula” is being used to import formula and the Defense Production Act has been utilized to hasten domestic production of infant formula – steps that did not begin until mid-May.

Biden’s timeline seems to suggest the White House was operating on solving the crisis without even looping in the President, further underscoring claims that Biden’s authority is often not taken seriously.

Why did it take so long for Biden to learn about the baby formula shortage? Has even his own White House lost faith in him?

The third and fourth rounds of shipments will begin next week.

Betcha he was informed well before April. He is trying to play the ‘plausible deniability’ card.

If you need any more evidence that this administration and this pretender in the White House are deep into Alzheimer’s, just read the news bulletins that follow one after the other stressing the gaffs, lies and misstatements he continues to make. The world sits breathlessly by waiting for him to start a world war or panic with his foolishness. Time for the Democrats to muzzle him, his know nothing cabinet and Jill.

Since there does not seem to be a shortage of formula in Mexico, why aren’t they getting the formula from Mexico? Everything else seems to be getting here from Mexico. Also, why aren’t they getting some from the stockpile at the border. The thinking of this administration defies all logic.

If Biden’s* breathing, he’s lying! His entire political career has been made up of doing what he and his administration goons claim everyone else is doing–spreading misinformation, disinformation and falsehoods. Comparing what he said to what he’s done, is it any wonder his rankings in the polls are so low a grub worm would have to squat to read them. Is it any wonder the citizens of this country no longer put any trust in their government. Former President Reagan was correct when he said we should run in the opposite direction if someone comes to our door and says, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” We’re on our own, folks, because those presently controlling the government, i.e. the progressive socialist Democrat “Borg” who claim that “resistance is futile”, will destroy us if we don’t destroy them first–and we’ll get that chance come Nov. 8, 2022.

I read an article that said Abbott knew about it in 2018 and that Biden was informed about it in October of 2021.

When and if Biden ever learns anything, it is always “too late”
If we wait till 2024 to be rid of him, it will be too late for the country.
