As we have previously reported, this baby formula shortage is real in the United States. The Biden White House has been unsurprisingly caught in a strangely stale response to it. Infuriated parents with infant children in America discovered this week that pallets containing baby formula were found near the southern border. This is a stark contrast to what one sees in the baby formula aisles at drug and grocery stores across the country.
This situation makes the Biden Administration look more incompetent every day there’s a shortage. The Usual Suspects rush to rescue by blaming everyone except Biden for the ongoing supply chain crisis.
Stephanie Ruhle from MSDNC, one of the network’s most prominent Democrat apologists was one such media figure. She took to Twitter to blame “an incredible secret oligopoly” and “hugely restrictive regulation” for the crisis.
Hacktress Bette Midler responded to Ruhle’s tweet with a hot take she probably regrets. She exclaimed, “TRY BREASTFEEDING!” It’s available upon request and is free!
TRY BREASTFEEEDING! It’s free and available on demand. https://t.co/15xetgg1ps

Imagine opening your mouth, and then inserting your foot.
There are many reasons why a mother might choose to use baby formula instead of breast milk. This is what thousands of mothers, including Kayleigh McEnany, who was criticized by Midler, have explained.
Not if you’ve had a prophylactic double mastectomy… https://t.co/VvyXs9FAqG

The ignorance of this tweet is overwhelming. There are many mommies undergoing cancer and other medical treatments that would love to breastfeed but they don’t want to harm their infants while fighting for their own lives. https://t.co/5jM4Jb74dF

My wife was pressured by her hospital to keep attempting to breastfeed despite the fact that she couldn’t provide more than a few drops. Some people just can’t do it, and fuck you for making them feel like failures because of their biology https://t.co/Z64gNT7tRh

This doesn’t work for everybody.
Some never could breastfeed.
Some folks go dry quickly.
Some babies bellies can’t handle breast milk and have to use formula.
Some folks just don’t want to.
This is not the solution you think it is, and it erases so many folks struggles. https://t.co/tBLPajYx2Y

All the grandparents across America who are raising their grandchildren feel so much better!

Not all mothers can you dumbass. It’s pretty offensive and sad for you to assume they can. I’ve witnessed, firsthand the unjust guilt a new mother feels when they want to breastfeed and aren’t able to. This makes that worse. You’re a terrible human being. https://t.co/3E1fcBj8vl

Even Bette’s “woke” fans took her to the task.
Imagine having a large gay fanbase, many of whom are raising kids in two-dad households, and thinking this is a good suggestion.

Then there was this, and so much more:
Learning before tweeting ignorant things and having some compassion is also free and available on demand https://t.co/HMOZxBIPDW

It turns out that “learning before tweeting” as well as “having compassion” on Twitter are in short supply in this country, particularly when it comes to celebrities who are out of touch and elitist with too much time and money.
