Lauren Boebert is Sick and Needs Help: Makes Disgusting Transphobic Joke and Ties it into the Baby Formula Shortage

The baby formula shortage was something entirely unforeseeable, the Biden administration knows it is serious and is on it, Biden cleared his calendar to meet with CEOs this week. And, the Biden administration is doing all it can to minimize the damage and fear.

According to the Atlantic, there are three causes:

First, the bacteria. After the recent deaths of at least two infants from a rare infection… As a result, the FDA recalled several brands of formula, and parents were advised to not buy or use some formula tied to the plant.

Second, the virus: The pandemic has snarled all sorts of supply chains, but I can’t think of a market it’s yanked around more than infant formula. “During the spring of 2020, formula sales rocketed upwards as people stockpiled formula just like they stockpiled toilet paper,”

Finally, the third factor: America’s regulatory and trade policy. And while that might not sound as interesting to most people as bacteria and viruses, it might be the most important part of the story.

The last part prevents the importation of formula from Europe because of labeling requirements. It is possible that Biden could do some kind of emergency waiver if needed on those regulations.

Boebert has repeatedly proven she’s transphobic and anti-LGBTQ, and is against same sex marriage.

So now we’re all on the same page as to why we have such a drastic shortage in formula. But those are the adult answers. A United States representative, whose job is supposed to be representing the citizens in her district, should be talking to regional managers of Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, the usuals, trying to maximize availability for her district, while also proposing plans for emergency legislation to allow importation from Europe for a brief period. (If required).

But that is an adult representative, one we presume is mentally well. We don’t mock mental illness, but this tweet by Lauren Boebert springs from either mental illness or immaturity or both:

Ha Ha, what a card. And what’s with the hat? Is that now a thing in MAGA politics? Dressing like kids? Well, if you think like a kid, you might as well dress like one.

Get serious or go become a bikini model that handles firearms for the right type of men. You would accomplish more in life and be more valuable to people.
