On Sunday, the White House couldn’t stop boasting about its first “airlift” for Operation Fly Formula, bragging about 70,000 pounds of European baby formula flown from Germany to the United States that amounts to a drop in the bucket considering how much baby formula America needs right about now.
Operation Fly Formula. My guess is the same brain trust that thought Ultra MAGA was a winner came up with that stupid name.
Operation Drop in the Bucket is more accurate.
Though, Operation Photo-Op works too.
This is the baby formula version of Joe releasing 50 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserves. That too was a drop in the bucket.
Sure, it gave the impression that this feckless White House was “doing something,” but what it’s doing will barely make a dent.
Optics matter to these people, but they are tremendously bad at it.
And whatever genius thought Operation Drop in the Bucket would be an optics success didn’t think it through at all.
Remember when Joe Biden bragged that electing him president meant “America is back?”
Oh, sure you do! He said it all the time.
Yes, sir. With old Joe in the White House, America will be respected by our allies again.
Our allies are used to providing humanitarian support for war-torn countries and impoverished nations. But this is the United States of America we’re talking about. Less than two years under the bungling Biden administration and our allies are having to provide humanitarian support to keep American babies from starving to death.
How much respect do you think our allies have for a so-called “superpower” that has to beg them to supply it with baby formula?
What an optics nightmare.
And yet, those idiots in the White House can’t stop bragging about this.
They even produced a slick, spiffy video complete with music to promote America’s need for humanitarian assistance.
As Jesse Kelly said on Twitter Sunday:
”The government causing a baby formula bottleneck with ridiculous regulations and then causing a baby formula shortage with incompetence and then acting like a hero for flying in baby formula is the most government thing in the history of government things.”
The baby formula shortage has been going on for months now. The FDA could’ve lifted its restrictions on the import of foreign-made baby formula the very day it forced Abbott’s Michigan plant to shut down.
This government didn’t do one single thing to prevent the inevitable shortage closing that plant was going to cause.
Now, nearly five months later, this administration wants a pat on the back for flying what amounts to a drop in the bucket?
They can go straight to hell.
But Biden’s embarrassing airlift is par for the course for this incompetent administration.
In fact, Biden’s entire presidency can be summed up in the optics of Operation Drop in the Bucket.
They cause a problem then do nothing, do nothing, do nothing. Then when people notice how little they’ve done, someone in the White House screams, “Quick! Look busy!” And they come up with something at the last second that, in the grand scheme of things, will do very little to alleviate the problem they caused. And because these guys are complete idiots, they choose something they think will offer them winning optics, only to end up with optics that send the wrong message. But because they’re retarded, rather than hang their heads in shame, the people in this White House produce slick videos promoting their idiotic scheme.
You have to admit. For most people, fucking up this royally would take a great deal of sweat, toil, and trouble.
But the Biden administration can royally fuck up without breaking a sweat.
I’d be embarrassed for them if we weren’t the ones who had to pay the price for all their fuck-ups.
