Biden WH is in ‘crisis mode’ over a ‘mess they didn’t create,’ CNN spin-masters say with a straight face

Conferring victimhood has become something of an art form with modern woke culture and the latest spin from CNN on the baby formula shortage is something of a Picasso in its presentation of President Joe Biden at the mercy of his own executive authority.

The crisis that is plaguing the nation, forcing parents to scour the internet and search stores hours from their homes in hopes of finding enough formula for their babies until more can be located, did not crop up overnight. Years of regulations and the further development of massive unchecked bureaucracies presented a scenario where a few inept leaders could easily usher in any number of devastating consequences.

But, according to CNN, the baby formula shortage can’t possible be pinned on Biden or his administration which had months to respond to the problem.


“President Joe Biden’s West Wing has been throw into crisis mode over a nationwide shortage of baby formula, with top aides undertaking efforts to restock grocery store shelves while coming under fire for a mess they didn’t create and which they’re still working to grasp the scope of,” CNN’s recent reporting declared.

You read that right. The White House is in crisis mode because of measures well beyond their control. In fact, according to CNN, this shortage that Biden will unfairly receive political damage from falls under the purview of the FDA, which he has no say in.

“The shortage has opened yet another political wound going into an already challenging midterm election season, frustrating the West Wing and the rest of the administration as they struggle with how little control they have over a situation which is centered at the US Food and Drug Administration,” which CNN explained is “an independent agency which the White House neither controls nor gets direct reports from.”

Meanwhile, as the administration touts the supposed successes of the recently launched “Operation Fly Formula” which could have occurred weeks if not months ago, CNN argued that the response was hampered by events happening days earlier.

“Complicating the response: The two Cabinet secretaries with the most direct authority over the situation — Becerra, whose department oversees the FDA, and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, whose department oversees food production — were both in Europe over the last week for conferences with their G7 counterparts,” they wrote.

So, while admitting the administration could have done something, they cover for HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra sitting on his hands for months by saying he was in Europe a week earlier and contracted COVID.

Despite the inability of Biden’s Cabinet to react to the warning signs of baby formula shortage, CNN cannot contend that the president was unaware or incapable of mounting an earlier response as he himself foretold the coming shortages.

“In regard to food shortages,” Biden said in March, “yes we did talk about food shortages and it’s gonna be real.”
