Trump just accused hospitals/med centers of maybe stealing and selling masks

After one of the CEO's spoke on masks demand going from 10-20k per week to 200-300k at individual locations.

Trump steps up and says to th reporters "Someone should look into that. How do you go from using 10,000 in a week to 300,000? Are some of these going out the backfdoor? (Talking down to the press) Someone should look into that. To me that doesn't make sense to me".

Paraphrased.

1. He lies when he gets in trouble

 

Then his supporters and Russian trolls helped spread his lies on Twitter and make hashtags about its trend.

7. What a fucking asshole.

It's the opposite - my brother just texted me a picture of a pile of masks baking in an oven because they do not have enough masks to meet the demand, and it's only going to get worse. Fuck off, Donny Dipshit. These lives are on you.

25. The next president needs to ban the bullshit from the White House.

OAN, TruNews and Infowars all need to be banned and lose their credentials.

Biden won't fix things overnight but he can at least get the smell of stupid out of the room.

40. Because HE is hoarding and

has also probably SOLD a lot of the national stockpile when he terminated it... probably for money for his wall.

Speaking of walls, we need to put a wall round him, actually four of them.

28. It's funny, I've always used the Yoda metaphor to describe this administration.

"Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering."

We've gone through all four - fear, anger, hate, suffering - in the span of four years under this POS.

24. I have a friend in procurement for a major CA corp.

 

They use the masks for clean room workers.

Due to the cluster of hospitals running out of masks, they were ordering N95s from their suppliers to donate to hospitals.

Now, do you think hospitals are still placing orders? Do you think hospitals are over ordering? Are other companies placing orders in higher quantities.

Classic whipsaw effect. Run our or run short and then over respond to the shortage.

Lack of leadership, lack of overall planning creates the problem.

So shut the FUCK UP Orange Shitstain, you are ignorant and creating issues.

33. to add, in addition of his horrible oversight he TOLD States they are on their own..

 

Go take care of themselves!!!

So if you are in a State procurement group and need to order some masks, what is the common response?

TO ORDER A SHIT TON!

Think about it, no reliable forecast based upon previous months or years, so you are taking a guess at demand. Thus you over order.

One of the problems for supply chain workers. If you over order you might hear about it once a year. You under order and run out and you are answering questions every day.

I work in procurement. Also you don't go through the quoting, ordering, approval, receiving, and payment process 4 times instead of one or two. Everything cost money including the process.
