“The View” co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar tried to defend Joe Biden by blaming Republicans for making the Democrat president “look bad.”
During the ABC show, the two controversial hosts listed some of Biden’s failures but tried to twist the narrative to blame GOP lawmakers.
Goldberg said: “America’s largest baby formula company has finally reopened the factory whose shut down caused the nationwide shortage that had millions of parents in a panic, Biden’s Commerce Secretary said the FDA made the right move.
“Let me tell you a couple of things that happened with the plant in Sturgis Michigan, it had unsanitary conditions including a leaking roof, water pooling on the floor, and cracks in production equipment that allowed bacteria to get in.”
She then tried to blame the GOP by arguing that “192 Republicans voted against easing the baby formula shortage with 28 million in emergency spending.”
However, that emergency spending didn’t address the baby formula shortage.
Goldberg then tried to blame Trump for the crisis by claiming that “you-know-who made sure we can’t get baby formula from Canada here because the trade rules that he put in the US Mexico Canada agreement punish Canadian companies if they export too much baby formula.
“And I don’t understand why Abbott has 49% of the market.”
However, Goldberg failed to mention that the biggest buyer of this formula is the federal government through the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) which “provides federal grants to states for supplemental foods, health care referrals, and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age 5 who are found to be at nutritional risk.”
Joy Behar also jumped in to defend Biden and trash the GOP:
“You know I think sometimes they (GOP) vote against the best interest of their constituency and against babies in this case,” she said.
“Because all they really care about is making Biden look bad.
“That seems to be their M.O. you know, let’s do something to the libs you know, own the libs, and make Biden look bad.
“It’s a vindictive stance, instead of trying to make things better, they like making it worse so that Biden looks bad.
“And by the way, inflation is a worldwide problem, he’s getting blamed for that.
“The gasoline is a worldwide problem, yes it’s $5 or $6 dollars here it’s like $11, $12 dollars in Europe.
“So you cannot blame the president for every single thing, they will do that.”
