Trump accuses New York hospitals of 'hoarding' masks and ventilators without evidence

Source: raw story





Published 1 min ago on March 29, 2020


President Donald Trump went off on a rant accusing hospitals, doctors and nurses of hoarding equipment and intentionally exaggerating the things they need.

Speaking in the Rose Garden Sunday, Trump asked, “How do you go from 10 to 20 to 300,000 masks? Where are the masks going, are they going out the backdoor?”

.......................................

“They have to look into that in New York,” Trump said, noting that he heard they went from 10,000 masks to 300,000 masks.

“I’m I don’t think it’s hoarding, it’s maybe worse than hoarding,” Trump said.

from Asia and anywhere else they can be bought. Trump is definitely hoarding it somewhere so he can help his rural base after we die in the cities.

do you fucking know where those mask came from possibly for here and they are still working on trying to get some masks.......................... let me give you a fucking clue.............................

Stephon Marbury sets up deal to deliver 10M masks to NY amid coronavirus crisis
By Rich CalderMarch 29, 2020 | 10:22am | Updated...................................

Since you think that this thing is still a fucking HOAX, and that you are playing one state against the other just for your fucking ego and cult of psychopaths to place you on some pedestal about you....................your still a fucking asshole...................and trying to be like president which you are not, your still a fucking CON...................

If one state and its governor says something about your lack of empathy and leadership you go off the deep end of shit twirling around in your golden toilet between your fucking ears, and do some nasty shit and just don't care ...................

This man has and is attempting to do something that you should be fucking doing, and he done more than you have in the last 48 hours, which is still fucking nothing, except wave or fucking salute to some ship for a photo op and then come back and march your worthless ass on your ego podium to babble like raving lunatic every 5:00 PM just like one track psychopath on scratchy vinyl record that just keeps repeating itself............................

16. If I was using them correctly (not reusing), I'd be going thru 20 x normal

I usually wear gloves a few times a shift in the ED, masks often never.

Using them correctly, I should be going thru 15-20 masks/ day and 20-30 pairs of gloves. Not to mention that n95 respirators should be disposable so you don’t contaminate one person to the next, or yourself.

17. It is worse than that....

He isn't accusing NY of hoarding. He is accusing them of reselling them.

That will be the new story - everything boils down to "how can I make a buck from this"-itis that Trump has....

This is how a mobster would approach it.

Nurses would be exposing themselves to deadly pathogens so the can make a few bucks? Then there is the fact that if they weren’t moral and ethical people, they wouldn’t be in that profession.

40. We're not getting them in FL

Me and my husband are RNs. I spent my weekend sewing masks. His hospital - the largest in the area - is telling nurses to make their own bc they have none.

All of the masks here are being sent to NY. We have none.

42. I'm sorry to hear that. Reports say Florida has been getting more than other states


Here's the tweet I saw that said Florida got/getting 3x shipment:




MA received 17% of requested medical supplies from the Trump admin. ME: 5%. CO: 1 day's worth.

FL got everything they requested. + an identical shipment the next week. oh, and a 3rd is on the way.
https://washingtonpost.com/national/...


Some reports indicate that the Federal government has been sending out supplies from the reserve according to population with some extras sent to heaviest outbreak states.

Here's why Florida got all the emergency medical supplies it requested while other states did not

Or the hospital isn't giving to employees.

Also, this:

Florida medical supplies diverted to NYC. Pinellas has a 2-week stock left for first responders.
Officials confirm that gowns, gloves, masks and other supplies originally destined for Florida have been sent to help New York hospitals.

getting a little bit ahead of their immediate needs right now, is it any surprise they are getting ready for a few more doublings over the next fortnight?

that his best chance for coming out of this relatively unscathed is to be taken out of office under the 25th Amendment? He may not be able to steal the full $200 billion, but he won't go to prison either.
