As challenger Ronald Reagan famously said to incumbent Jimmy Carter in the second 1980 presidential debate, “There you go again”; this time, with “you” being Joe Biden and “again” being yet another self-created crisis by the most inept president in modern history, if not the history of the presidency itself.
So let’s officially add the Biden Baby Formula Crisis(TM) to the long list of Biden Crises(TM), shall we?
Let’s also first make sure we’re all up to speed on the latest developments of another crisis that did not need to happen. As RedState reported Thursday, the familiar Biden spin was well underway: Joe Biden Invokes Defense Production Act to Try to Fix the Baby Formula Shortage His Henchmen Created.
With the supply of baby formula depleted by nearly 50 percent in at least 43 states, Biden invoked the Act and ordered the U.S. military to fly in baby formula from Europe. Think that through, for a minute. The Act was put in place in 1950 in response to the Korean War — to allow the United States to fly food to the region in the event of war-caused shortages.

By Saturday afternoon, the White House launched a full-court press, pathetically attempting to take credit for “solving” a crisis Biden himself created.
Again, think about it. Think about the sorry state of our country. This is Biden’s America, a generous country that has always been on the delivering end of foreign aid is now on the receiving end. It is abhorrent. There is no other way to put it.
Anyway, by Sunday morning, the official Biden Twitter account became really embarrassing — in a since-deleted tweet (but screenshots live forever) — in multiple ways:
Setting aside that “small” mistake, how many babies for how long does 70,000 pounds of baby formula feed, you ask? Welp, let’s go to math and reality — as opposed to hype and political expediency for a possible answer — you know; just for perspective.
As reported by Bloomberg News on Sunday, the 70,000 pounds arrived in Indianapolis on Sunday, which the White House said could begin arriving in stores as early as this week. As translated by Bloomberg, Brian Deese, Biden’s top economic adviser in the White House, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the formula will address “15 percent of the overall national volume that we need.”
Again, for how long?
One Twitterer suggested the 70,000 pounds will last four hours.
Baby formula runs about $22 a pound, on average. 70,000 pounds is about $1.5 million dollars of formula. U.S. yearly formula purchases exceed $3.6 billion dollars. Way to secure nearly 4 hours of domestic demand, Joe!!!
The math is correct, given the example, putting Barney Fife Biden’s chest-thumping “Hey, look at what I did!” braggadocio into perspective.
Yet brag on he did.
I have an update on Operation Fly Formula. We have secured a second flight to transport Nestl? specialty infant formula to Pennsylvania.
The flight and trucking will take place in the coming days, and I will continue to keep you updated.
Good job, Joe. </serious sarcasm>
Instead of lying about when he became aware of the shortage — or refusing to talk about it — perhaps Biden could have gone Harry Truman, for a change, instead of Joe Biden, and admitted that the White House has been aware of the shortage for months, as reported by RedState in early May, following bizarre (lying) comments by former White House press secretary Jen Psaki.
Nah, then he wouldn’t have been Joe Biden.
The bottom line:
Biden’s crises are well documented: The Biden Border Crisis, Biden Oil Crisis, Biden Afghanistan Debacle, Biden Supply Chain Crisis, Bidenomics, Bidenflation, Biden Gas Price Hikes Crisis, and any other crises I might have missed, but a Biden Baby Formula Crisis?
Particularly, given all this guy has harped about ad nauseam for 16 months has been COVID mandates, so-called “systemic racism” and “White supremacy,” all things LGBTQ+ and gender self-identification — let alone continuing his Custer’s Last Stand fight to import as many illegal aliens as he can get away with.
Why? Because he’s Joe Biden, of course.
