#BareShelvesBiden Trends as Americans Detail How Joe's Failures Have Hit Hard

I live in the Fort Worth area and one of the places that I enjoy going for some great comfort food is the West Side Cafe. It has some great fluffy western omelettes and wonderful chicken fried steak. But truly, everything is good there. It was hard to get a better breakfast than one of their omelettes, their sausage, and their thick, but wonderful rye bread. They source very good products.

But a couple of months ago, I ordered the rye bread and they said it was out — that it was a supply chain issue. It hasn’t come back. I thought, “Dang, Brandon even got my rye bread!” The cafe has also posted that the supply issues are causing them to change their to-go packaging and might cause them to have to raise prices on to-go orders.

Unfortunately, it’s not just me or that cafe.

We’re still seeing issues across the country, as people trended #BareShelvesBiden yesterday on Twitter and posted pictures about their difficulties trying to find things as the supply chain problems translate into empty shelves again. #EmptyShelvesJoe first trended in October. Media at the time even tried to tell us how those empty shelves could be a good thing, that you should be happy with less.

But the issues are still there.

Newsbusters managing editor Curtis Houck posted about Oakton Virginia.

CNBC senior White House correspondent Kayla Tausche posted about a Trader Joe’s, calling it “Apocolypse now.”

Democrat Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms also weighed in about the problems her Instacart shopper was having finding things in a Publix in southwest Atlanta.

Last week, we went on a hunt for a whole chicken. We had to go to three stores before we could find one. Can you imagine? I couldn’t have imagined such a thing a couple of years ago in the greatest country on the face of the earth. We’ve never had that at least not in recent memory. We’re not the Soviet Union or Venezuela, although it does seem like Joe Biden wants to take us there.

Here’s the Target in Watauga, Texas last week. If you wanted orange juice, it was close to being cleaned out.

Then, if you wanted pasta at a Walmart Super Center in Fort Worth, there wasn’t much left.

Cream cheese has been a real problem, coast to coast. Our managing editor Jennifer Van Laar had difficulty finding it in Simi Valley, California when she went out on a bagel run.

Last month, Kraft was actually paying people $20 not to make a cheesecake for Christmas because of the cream cheese shortage. That was particularly hard on the folks in New York, for whom bagel and cream cheese is such a ritual.

Some of the liberals tried to dispute this and blame people for posting about it.

But sorry, that doesn’t work when we see it hitting our own shelves — and shelves across the country.
