(TheConservativeNews.org) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) got worked up this Sunday when confronted with remarks from Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), chairwoman of the House Republican Conference. Stefanik blamed the shortages of baby formula on President Joe Biden sending pallets of formula to the U.S. southern border.
“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.”
George Stephanopoulos asked Pelosi on ABC’s “This Week” whether the shortage was in-part due to Biden’s decision.
“As usual, her statement is totally irresponsible,” Pelosi responded. “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.”
Pelosi did not state whether the accuracy of Stefanik’s remarks were true or not, but said that part of the issue was the “supply chain.”
Stefanik fired back on Twitter, writing: “As usual, your LEADERSHIP is totally irresponsible. Babies are crying. We need to get them food.”
