Last weekend, Biden was mocked for bragging about transporting 70,000 lbs of infant formula from Europe to the U.S. while his administration has been attacked over the nationwide baby formula scarcity.
“People, I’m happy to inform you that the first flight of Operation Fly Formula that is carrying over 70,000 lbs of baby formula will touchdown in Indiana today. Our team has been working around the clock to deliver safe formula to those who require it.”
In a now-deleted tweet, Biden stated that his administration had imported “70,000 tons” of baby formula, which went viral on social media.
Biden was subjected to a barrage of mockery and severe criticism on social media for describing the incident in such a self-congratulatory manner.
“In the United States, approximately 10,000 babies are born every day, with 20% of them using formula during the first days of life,” Nicole Saphier, MD, stated on Twitter. “The delivery was fantastic; however, let’s be honest, the supply will only last a few days.”
“We have become a third-world nation,” the Twitter account Comfortably Smug tweeted, “where other nations are providing aid to us.”
While many of the top responses were as follows:
Stephen L. Miller, “Another Biden Administration historic airlift,” said the political commentator.
Julie Gunlock, Independent Women’s Network director: “The Biden administration created this problem…but it’s fine, everyone take a bow.”
Ellen Carmichael, The Lafayette Co president.: “It will be discomfiting for me to see that other countries are helping us out as a result of stupid policy choices. This is still America.”
Jesse Kelly, a radio host: “The government causing the baby formula shortage and bottleneck with crazy regulations and incompetence and then thinking they are the hero for flying in infant formula is the most hilarious government thing in our nation’s history.”
Preston Byrne, attorney: “You would not need the military to fly in pallets for show if you simply allowed the European formula to be purchased by US distributors.”
