With the Democrats’ midterm hopes sinking further by the hour, it appears as though the White House is adjusting their PR strategy from pithy to pitiful.
Instead of pushing back on claims that they maybe should have done more to prevent the multiple crises that we face today, the Biden administration has taken to profusely apologizing for getting it all so wrong.
Yesterday, they trotted out Janet Yellen to tell us all about the misreading of the inflationary data, and now it’s Biden himself confessing to possibly botching the baby formula crisis.
President Joe Biden acknowledged Wednesday he did not know about the infant formula shortage soon enough.
“I don’t think anyone anticipated the impact of the shutdown of one facility,” Biden said to reporters when asked why he did not act sooner to help end shortages.
Biden spoke to a group of baby formula producers during a live video event on his imitation White House set across the street from the actual White House in an attempt to demonstrate his commitment to solving the problem.
But Biden said he did not realize the problem until early April, even though formula-producing executives had sent messages to realtors warning of potential shortages.
“They did, but I didn’t,” he said shortly, referring to the CEOs.
And while it is certainly nice for someone in our government to take responsibility for once, it would be rather nice if they acted upon those revelations as well.
