Biden’s Incoming Press Secretary Laughs When Asked About Baby Formula Crisis

Published

on

On Wednesday, incoming White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that the infant formula shortage is a “top priority” for the Biden administration but laughed as she admitted to reporters that she didn’t know who was in charge of handling the crisis of mothers being unable to feed their babies.

As noted by RNC Research on Twitter, “In 25 states, 40-50% of baby formula products are OUT OF STOCK. In 5 states, over 50% of formula is OUT OF STOCK.”

“On baby formula, there have been severe shortages throughout much of the country over many weeks and months but particularly the last couple of weeks, what is the administration doing? What can you do?” a reporter asked Jean-Pierre.

“That’s something certainly we’ve been tracking,” Jean-Pierre replied. “Ensuring that infant formula is safe and available for families across the country is a top priority for the White House and this administration. We know that Abbott’s voluntary recall of infant formula products has led to some Americans being unable to access other critical medical food supply. This is an urgent issue that the FDA and White House are working 24/7 to address.”

“Who is running point on the formula issue at the White House? You mentioned the White House is involved,” another reporter asked.

“At the White House, I don’t know,” Jean-Pierre said while laughing. “I can find out for you and get you a person who is running point.”

Jean-Pierre is currently the Biden administration’s Principal Deputy Press Secretary, but she will officially replace Jen Psaki as White House Press Secretary on Friday, May 13.

Florida Gov Signs Law Making It Illegal To Protest Outside An Individual’s Home

Ron DeSantis

On Monday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill that makes it a crime to protest outside an individual’s home.

“Sending unruly mobs to private residences, like we have seen with the angry crowds in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices, is inappropriate,” DeSantis said. “This bill will provide protection to those living in residential communities and I am glad to sign it into law.”

The law will go into effect on October 1, and once “this law takes effect, law enforcement officers will provide a warning to any person picketing or protesting outside of a dwelling and will make arrests for residential picketing only if the person does not peaceably disperse after the warning. Residential picketing will be punishable as a second-degree misdemeanor,” DeSantis’ office explained.

“It is unlawful for a person to picket or protest before or about the dwelling of any person with the intent to harass or disturb that person in his or her dwelling,” the text of the bill says. “Before a person may be arrested for a violation of this section, a law enforcement officer… or a local, state, federal, or military law enforcement agency must go as near to the person as may be done with safety and shall command any person picketing or protesting before or about the dwelling of a person to immediately and peaceably disperse. If any such person does not thereupon immediately and peaceably disperse, he or she may be arrested for a violation of this section.”

The new law comes in response to leftist protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices following the leak of a draft of a Supreme Court majority opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked to Politico.

“Roughly 100 protesters appeared outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house, where they carried signs and chanted slogans before walking a half-mile to Chief Justice John Roberts’s home, then back to Kavanaugh’s home, where police ordered them to leave the area,” The Washington Examiner reported last week.

Pelosi Snaps When Asked About Baby Formula Shortage

Nancy Pelosi

On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) snapped when asked about comments from Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who criticized President Biden’s decision to send baby formula to the southern border as the United States suffers from a baby formula shortage.

“Joe Biden continues to put America LAST by shipping pallets of baby formula to the southern border as American families face empty shelves,” Stefanik wrote on Twitter. “This is unacceptable. American mothers and their babies shouldn’t suffer because of the #BidenBorderCrisis.”

Pelosi was asked about Stefanik’s comments during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”

“As usual, her statement is totally irresponsible,” Pelosi said. “Babies are crying. We need to get them food. And the president has — now what we’re doing this week in the Congress is, again, Bobby Scott, chair of the Education and Labor Committee, that’s the jurisdiction that will lower some of the regulations, et cetera, so that it’s easier to buy it… We must do something as quickly as possible, but as safely as possible, and use caution, for these babies. But we have to move quickly to do that. And part of this is, again, the supply chain issue.”

Stefanik responded to Pelosi on Twitter, writing: “As usual, your LEADERSHIP is totally irresponsible. Babies are crying. We need to get them food.”
