Laura Ingraham on Thursday either forgot about or conveniently ignored the many documented instances of hoarding that occurred early in the COVID-19 pandemic when, during a segment criticizing the Biden administration over supply chain issues, she asked why “didn’t we have” it during the Trump years.

Ingraham began a panel discussion with Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) and conservative author Horace Cooper by mentioning the troubling shortage of baby formula. (That shortage is partly due to the FDA closing a Michigan manufacturing plant amid an investigation into the deaths of at least two babies and bacterial infections linked to powdered formula produced there.) The Fox host claimed that “rather than fixing this issue that’s really striking at the heart of so many people… the Biden administration is just doing the usual gaslighting.”

Ingraham then played a clip of White House press secretary Jen Psaki addressing the issue. Psaki told reporters that “what we are seeing—which is an enormous problem—is hoarding, people hoarding because they are fearful.” She later said, “We are also calling on retailers to impose purchasing limits to prevent the possibility of hoarding because we know that that is an issue.”
