When it comes to politics there are some things that can be counted on like clockwork, such as the media running interference for the Biden administration amid the latest controversy. Another reliable occurrence is that at some point Bette Midler will interject her unsolicited opinion and make matters worse for the left.
The latest example of this is the baby formula shortage in America. While the media is holding up Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg as an example of how Democratic leaders are suffering right along with the regular folks, the far left singer/actress weighed in to essentially offend mothers everywhere.
Buttigieg, who is openly gay, is the father of twins after adopting the newly born babies in September. The Daily Mail regaled about how “the baby formula shortage is affecting him and his husband Chasten as they have had to ‘root around’ and talk to friends out of state to get food for their nine-month old twins.”
The Biden administration official said the twins – Penelope Rose and Joseph August Buttigieg – are “completely reliant” on formula, proving that you can’t get much by him.
“Like millions of Americans we’ve had to root around find different solutions. Spend more time clicking and clicking online – even get in touch with relatives out of state. We’re okay we’ve figured it out at least for now,” he told Sirius XM.
Which is not to say that social media users attuned to the left’s inane critical gender theory didn’t offer their advice:
Breastfeed them! 😏

As for Midler. she responded to a tweet from MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle criticizing the industry, noting that three American companies control over 90 percent of the market and that “hugely restrictive regulations” prevent the importation of foreign-made baby formula.
“TRY BREASTFEEEDING! It’s free and available on demand,” tweeted the dim bulb Midler.

Midler has one daughter who was born in 1986, so she may have forgotten the trials and tribulations that come with breastfeeding as she suggests its like a faucet that can be turned on and off at will. For many women, breast feeding can be a very painful experience and for those who are on certain medications or need to undergo a medical treatment, it’s not an option. Aside from that, it requires a lot of time and comes with a steep learning curve, which can prove to be difficult for working moms.
Then again, with an estimated net worth of $250 million, Midler wouldn’t know much about that.
After getting dunked on for the insensitive comment, the liberal elitist returned to the scene of the crime to essentially move the goalposts.
People are piling on because of former tweet. No shame if you can’t breastfeed, but if you can & are somehow convinced that your own milk isn’t as good as a “scientifically researched product”, that’s something else again. The monopoly news is news to me, tho, no lie. #WETNURSES
