Jean-Pierre holds surprise formula crisis ‘briefing’ with selected moms, features Rachel Levine

The tone-deaf Biden White House held a private briefing Thursday evening to discuss the baby formula shortage and COVID-19 vaccines with a select group of parents, parenting writers and influencers.

Hosted by President Biden’s spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre, the briefing featured transgender Adm. Rachel Levine, the father of two children before transitioning to a female and getting a divorce  from his wife two years after the transition, and Dr. Ashish Jha, the White House coronavirus coordinator.

The special event was not on the day’s schedule and took place after the White House had called a lid for the day, according to New York Post reporter Steven Nelson.

NBC News White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell also noted that the briefing came after a lid had been called, as did Bloomberg News correspondent Josh Wingrove:

Levine refused to take questions from the press, according to Nelson.

“I’m not answering any questions. Thank you. Nice to meet you, though,” Levine told journalists while leaving the room, according to the Daily Mail.

Which is not to say that the transgender Biden official couldn’t find time to pose with babies present in the room.

Levine also found time to share a tweet basking in the overflow of diversity in the Biden administration.

The admiral was asked twice about when President Biden was made aware of the baby formula crisis and who briefed the president on it, the Daily Mail reported.

The British newspaper asked White House Correspondents’ Association President Steven Portnoy for comment about the event kept from the American people.

“Any US government official who stands at that podium should be ready to take any question from any member of our press corps – particularly one that gets at accountability on an issue of importance to the whole country,” Portnoy said.

You may recall that Jean-Pierre gave reporters a different timeline on when Biden found out that baby formula would be in short supply, saying he first learned about in “late April,” this coming after he told reporters he had learned about the shortage in early April.

One of the largest plants in the nation that makes baby formula shut down in mid-February, with the foreseeable result being nationwide formula shortages. It wasn’t until mid-May that the president took executive action to address the crisis as mothers became increasingly desperate in their efforts to feed their babies.
