Wow, the blue-checks are having a field day with that CNN interview with a woman who was explaining the effect of inflation on her family: “When you buy 12 gallons a week times four weeks, that’s a lot of money,” she said. Jonathan Chait jumped right in with a gag about the family having to cut back on milk baths, and the New York Times Wordplay account deleted a tweet saying, “sorry, i can’t do today’s crossword. i’m too busy carrying my 12 gallons of milk home.”
Now we have the sports editor of the Orlando Sentinel saying that having to buy 12 gallons of milk a week means you have a problem with contraception, not inflation.
I'm sorry, did you say *12* gallons of milk a week?

Having to buy 12 gallons a week means you have an issue with contraception… not the price of milk 🤷🏽♂️

Even CNN’s Brianna Keilar jumped in to inform those who hadn’t watched the segment that the couple has two biological children, has adopted five, and is fostering one. So yeah, contraception is their problem, not inflation.
Only two were theirs. The others are adopted or foster

So, did you bother to read that they ADOPTED children and fostered them? Probably not…..🙄

Or it means you have some foster or adopted children. What makes you act this way. Additionally what makes you think that other families aren't struggling with the same issues? Petty and disgusting.

Didn't read it, didja J. Michael? They're adopted and fostered. But keep on taking dumps on people trying to save kids from bad situations.

And what, pray tell, do you believe is their *problem* with contraception?

Glad to know you are against adopting and fostering kids to help into a better life. Very nice of you

Wow. Way to look down on large families and demean them.
— Emily DeArdo 💀🦚 (@emdeardo) November 4, 2021
So people with lots of children don’t deserve to be able to afford milk? What an argument. You seem nice.

Ah nice. Good job Sports Editor.

This is why we have a social media policy in our newspaper. Do you realize that many of the kids in the family were adopted?

Journos never miss an opportunity to be terrible people

Not reading or listening to the story before offering your opinion means you’re in your own special bracket of ignorance.
— Organic_Reality (@Organic_Reality) November 4, 2021
Just here for the ratio.
And to wish your parents had understood contraception.

I bet you thought this was edgy. 🤷

Wow, what an insulting statement. The phrase "How low can you go?" comes to mind.

Your ignorance is astounding. Proud of yourself?

Wow, you’re a jackass.

Tell me you're a piece of garbage without saying you're a piece of garbage.

Why do so many people have a problem with this family?
