White House Blames Parents for Baby Formula Shortage

'It’s a moral obligation... '

(Gregg Pupecki, Headline USA) As parents across the nation struggle to find baby food on the shelves, White House press secretary Jen Psaki scapegoated concerned parents by blaming them for buying up all the formula.

“What we are seeing, which is an enormous problem, is hoarding,” Psaki scolded.

“People hoarding because they’re fearful — that is one element of it — and people hoarding because they are trying to profit off of fearful parents.”  

Meanwhile, Biden is shipping pallets of baby formula to illegal migrant facilities along the southern border.

Psaki was also asked when the Food and Drug Administration would allow the Abbott baby formula manufacturing plant to reopen, after being shut down over contamination concerns.

“I would point you to the FDA,” Psaki dodged.

“But, again, I’d go back to why this decision was made in the first place, which was to save babies’ lives and the FDA is not going to approve manufacturing again unless they are certain of the safety.” Psaki said, referring to the same agency that is on the verge of approving an experimental mRNA vaccine for infants.

Psaki suggested that parents who can’t find baby formula contact their doctor.

“We would certainly encourage any parent who has concerns about their child’s health or wellbeing to call their doctor or pediatrician,” Psaki said.

In a follow-up briefing, Psaki circled back but continued to sidestep the problem.

Psaki did get emotional after talking about the issue. Unfortunately, she was tearing up not from American mothers struggling to feed their hungry babies, but because it was her last press conference. She is leaving the Biden administration for a prearranged, lucrative position at MSNBC. 

After Psaki regained her composure and wiped away her selfish tears, she continued to blame others for the formula shortage. She announced that next week the administration is going to lower import standards so baby formula can be imported from foreign countries.  She said the administration is focused on improving the WIC program to increase eligibility for free formula. 

Then Psaki, responding to a question did, confirm that pallets of baby formula were sent to illegal migrants during the shortage, but cited a law they were following.

“It’s a moral obligation,” she said, that we take care of the migrants.
