A CNN report sought to highlight the struggles of an American family in Texas when it comes to buying food these days due to inflation and was relentlessly hammered on Twitter by angry, unhinged blue-checked leftists.

CNN New Day anchor Brianna Keilar tweeted a video of correspondent Evan McMorris-Santos interviewing the Stottler family in Kennedale, Texas who is trying to stretch their dollars when buying food for their nine kids. Six are adopted and one is a foster child.

“A gallon of milk was $1.99. Now it’s $2.79. When you buy 12 gallons a week times four weeks, that’s a lot of money,” Keilar tweeted followed by her own take on the segment of “how badly inflation is hitting the middle class.”

Then Twitter got a hold of it. Many leftists contended it was absurd to buy 50 gallons of milk a month without evidently watching the video or doing the actual math concerning the number of children in the family.

“Truly remarkable number of a**holes on here attempting to dunk on a charming family who lays out how it feels to shop with price rises,” McMorris-Santos tweeted. “Very wise and cool tweets. Glad you’re all weathering the economy so well!”

Trolls on social media mercilessly tore into a seemingly kind, loving family and especially the parents Larry and Krista Stottler.

As Mediaite astutely put it, “But because Twitter is the worst, they got dunked on in a manner that reaffirmed nearly every stereotype of East Coast media douchebaggery.”

And the nastiness went on and on and on.

NY Magazine columnist Jonathan Chait sneered, “12 gallons of milk a week may sound like a lot, but they’ve actually had to cut out their milk baths on alternate days.”

Daily Show head writer Dan Amara quipped, “This is not nearly enough milk, I’m picking up at least 30 gallons a day.”

New Yorker writer Jamelle Bouie condescendingly tweeted, “I’m sorry, 12 gallons of milk?”

Another leftist named Tom Kludt snarked, “Honey, could you swing by the store and pick up a dozen gallons of milk? We’re out.”

Media outlets such as The Daily KOS just dripped with vitriol over the family’s struggle:

The Stotler family is pure media-bait. They’re white (because of course they are), they live in Texas (again, of course), and they have a whole bunch of kids, most of them adopted. CNN’s Evan McMorris-Santoro interviewed them about their grocery budget, accompanied by lots of footage of the family—including five or six kids who I am so sure are included on every supermarket run—going shopping.

And this nugget:

Okay, first of all, hold up now. TWELVE GALLONS of milk every week? This is a large family but that is more than a gallon of milk per person. At that rate, maybe they should look into just buying a cow.

And there are so many more clueless liberals out there that evidently have not felt the pinch of inflation yet, but it’s coming:

Since there are 11 people in the family, their milk consumption is not out of line especially if there is cooking involved. It works out to about two glasses per person per day and that does not include recipes.

Inflation is skyrocketing under the policies of the Biden administration and many, many families are now struggling to put food on the table and to buy gas so they can get to work.
