Elise Stefanik Slams ‘Lame Duck’ Pelosi: ‘Your Leadership Is Totally Irresponsible’

Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has slammed “lame duck” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) over the nationwide baby formula shortage.

During an appearence on ABC News, Pelosi told George Stephanopoulos that Stefanik was being irresponsible in blaming Biden and the Democrats for the shortages.

However, Pelosi then contradicted herself a few seconds later by saying that Congress will try to do something to help the situation this week.

“Let’s talk about inflation right now,” Stephanopoulos said to Pelosi.

“This is something on the minds of all Americans.

“It’s certainly going to be working against Democrats heading into the midterms.

“Is there anything you can do between now and November to bring prices down?”

Pelosi responded: “Well, first, if I just may, on this weekend we were sadly observing the 1 millionth — the death of 1 million people from COVID.

“The sadness in our country, a million people dying, and we have to do something more about that.

“And we’re hoping that our Republican colleagues…”

Stephanopoulos tried to get Pelosi back on the subject by interjecting to say: “Legislation is stalled in the House right now.”

Pelosi fired back, saying: “Well, it’s not stalled in the House.”

“The Senate, excuse me,” Stephanopoulos clarified.

Pelosi continued: “It’s stalled in the Senate.

“Let’s put it that way.

“So we value all of us, and this, what happened last night was an assault on community, community safety, and the rest as well as COVID undermining communities in such a way.

“Let’s talk about inflation,” Pelosi said.

“First of all, a few things.

“Inflation, what — what causes inflation?

“One is when unemployment goes down, inflation goes up.

“That’s not anything to accept.

“When wages go up, inflation goes up. That’s one.”

Pelosi then continued by trying to push the Democrats’ “Putin price hike” narrative to explain inflation and shortages.

“So many families are also facing this baby formula shortage right now, dire shortage across the country,” Stephanopoulos said to Pelosi.

“Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, Republican from here in New York, is laying this on President Biden and his shipping of pallets of baby formula to the southern border.

“She has a tweet right there where says ‘as American families face empty shelves, this is unacceptable.’

“Is that why we’re facing this shortage?”

Pelosi shot back, saying: “As usual, her statement is totally irresponsible.

“Babies are crying. We need to get them food.”

“The president is quite correct,” she later added.

“We must do something as quickly as possible, but as safely as possible, and use caution, for these babies.

“But we have to move quickly to do that. And part of this is, again, the supply chain issue.”


Enter Elise Stefanik:

“For the lame duck Speaker: Right back at you.

“As usual, your LEADERSHIP is totally irresponsible.

“Babies are crying. We need to get them food.”

“House Republicans have been leading on this issue while Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi have been silent & asleep at the switch.”
