    The hateful, racist theory that inspired a teenager to commit mass murder in Buffalo, NY is a popular talking point among Republican politicians and the host of "Tucker Carlson Tonight." Elsewhere in America, parents are desperately searching for supplies of baby formula as the nationwide shortage becomes a full-blown crisis.

PLEASE REMEMBER that formula is in short supply because we allow only 3 companies to control the market and instead of maintaining their machines, a company spent $5 billion on stock buy backs and let contamination kill 2 babies and shut down the plant.

Gas is $5 a gallon and pizza companies are still compensating their drivers like it's $2 a gallon.

I am a former delivery driver. If foodservice people are so essential, try paying them like they're essential and they won't quit.

Somehow, I really feel that the root cause of all of the problems discussed here can be trace back to greed.

there isn’t a shortage of pizza drivers. There’s a shortage of delivery jobs willing to hire for living wage

I was at Safeway today, and while shopping I heard over the intercom that they needed the key to the baby food formula and I have to wonder at what point does society realize that if people are stealing baby food, it's probably because they need to feed their freaking babies!

John Oliver still wins: “Tucker Carlson, the answer to the question: ‘what if the sound thud grew a face.’”

With all the job shortages and all the CEOs getting rich, maybe it's time enstate some "Anti-overpaid CEO laws".

The shortage of both delivery drivers and pilots is roughly caused by the same thing. Delivery drivers are paid at roughly minimum wage and are expected to do basically every single indoor job the dedicated indoor staff who are paid much more do. If you have a dedicated dishwasher you pay them a lot more but if you just have extra delivery drivers on hand you make them wash the dishes for cheap. That's why they have a shortage of delivery drivers. And as for pilots? Yes, the training costs to become a pilot are astronomical. I believe $30,000 is no longer enough. But if you spend that much money out of your own pocket what you're going to get is a job with a commuter airline that will barely pay you enough money keep up the rent on a small apartment that you will never see because you will be stuck in random hotels in various places for most of your life. And their policy is to deliberately work these pilots hard until they burn out and quit so they don't have to pay them more money as they gain experience! And now they want to complain about not having enough pilots? They're causing people who dream of flying for a living to quit in disillusionment from their mismanagement.

Ironically, the one time they say “investing in the country’s future” isn’t a metaphor. We can subsidize damn near anything, but not baby nutrition…? Seems like a baby is kind of the definition of a long term investment🤷🏻‍♂️

Wishing John a speedy recovery. Have to thank the band leader filling in for playing We Gotta Live Together - still a message we all need to hear (as well as catchy as hell).

If one companies recall can create a shortage it's time for that company to be broken up

Welcome back Stephen - so glad you’re healthy and back to work. The news didn’t get better while you were away. But having you back adds a silver lining to the dark cloud.

It's almost as if paying pilots $30,000 a year and delivery drivers even less makes those jobs less attractive? It's almost as if allowing a monopoly on baby formula by three or four poorly regulated companies who use their profits to do stock buybacks instead of upgrading equipment and performing maintenance is a bad thing? Meh, who am I kidding. A living wage for struggling Americans and government regulation of industry is totally overrated. Right?

It's crazy that in America an 18-year-old can legally buy assault rifles but you have to be 21-year-old to buy beer.

Colbert's impression of mothers was a solid Phil Hartman impression. 😂
