    Grammy award winning singer John Legend was slammed after he mocked a Republican congressman for saying that Americans should be prioritized over illegal immigrants during the baby formula shortage plaguing the nation.

    Texas Rep. Troy Nehls took note of a report stating that the Biden administration had reportedly shipped "pallets" of baby formula to migrant holding facilities. He commented, "Baby formula should go to Americans before illegals. This should not have to be said."

    Legend taunted, "These are the 'pro-life' folks."

    Legend's mockery triggered harsh criticism on social media.

    Radio host Joe Pagliarulo: "Yes, John. Baby formula in America should to American families before the families of those breaking the law to come here. Why is this controversial? When's the last time you said something in support of our country?"

    Attorney/author Kurt Schlichter: "Yes I prefer Americans to foreigners. You have accurately assessed my preference."

    Florida GOP Rep. Kat Cammack stated on Facebook that she didn't blame the immigrant children for having the formula, but said the Biden administration was again implementing its "America Last" agenda.

    "It is not the children's fault at all," she asserted. "But what is infuriating to me is that this is another example of the America last agenda that the Biden administration continues to perpetuate."

    "I don't know about you, but if I am a mother, anywhere, anytime in America, and I go to my local Walmart or Target or Publix or Safeway or Kroger or wherever it may be that you shop, and you are seeing bare shelves and you are seeing signs that you are not able to get baby formula," she continued. "And then you see the American government sending by the pallet thousands and thousands of containers of baby formula to the border, that would make my blood boil."

    In 2018, Legend altered the lyrics of the perennial Christmas favorite "Baby, It's Cold Outside" in the version he recorded with singer Kelly Clarkson, seemingly championing abortion as he added "It's your body and your choice."

    The complete set of Legend's new lyrics came amid criticism that the original song resembled a "date-rape."

    The new lyrics provoked Susan Loesser, the daughter of famed composer-lyricist Frank Loesser, who composed the song, to comment, "Way before #Me Too, I would hear from time to time people call it a date rape song. I would get annoyed because it's a song my father wrote for him and my mother to sing at parties. People used to say 'what's in this drink' as a joke. You know, this drink is going straight to my head so what's in this drink? Back then it didn't mean you drugged me."
