All that hoarding...of invisible supplies

So President Trump make a big deal of using the Defense Production Act to order GM to produce ventilators need badly and hospitals across the country.

A week later, guess how many ventilator orders have been placed? If you answered absolutely zero, give yourself a point.

It was on the news last night that American companies are shipping ventilators to other countries. Trump knows about this but refuses to use the DP Act against them. He doesn't give a darn about us Americans.

Regarding GM, they had already contracted with another company who makes ventilators to find out their plans. That's when Trump decided to flex his muscles against GM, only because he doesn't get along with GM's CEO!

@JeanAnna Very true. GM had launched their own plan to produce ventilators before Trump ever got to them.

@Graylight But as usual, Trump had to take credit for it. He's such a hypocrite.

No different to the UK, many Government Ministers and the PM have promised 10,000 ventilators and have canceled ordered for Gtech and put orders with Dyson ( I wonder why!!!!)

Now to date they"ve said next week 30 will arrive

Its the same with testing the NHS front line staff they promised by last weekend they would be done and to date 2,000 of 500,000

and don't even go down the PPE as that's even more a complete dissarster!!!
Just one more source of "fake news" for Trumpists, I'm sure. Out of all this mess, it astonishes me how so many people not only embrace the man and his alternate reality, but also his basic operating principles of amorality and lack of personal or professional accountability.

@daisymay Well Boris and his mob used the old war thinking of the foto soliders and used the hearding methord here so basically turned every citizen into a foot soldier and cannon fodder

@milkymum1 I know. The alt-right leaders in the world are humongous piles of shit. The only silver lining I see is that they're also monumentally stupid, so while lots and lots of people they don't like will sicken and die, so, too, will lots and lots of their cheerleaders. Maybe their ideology will snuff itself out due to lack of adherents.

There, the worst silver lining in the history of silver linings. 🥳

@daisymay That is so very true the idiots who cheer them along and don't think what Boris and co are doing will affect them but in the long run will and this time some won't be able to moan about it as they won't be here.

Well it speaks volumes as you knwo when Boris fucks up as he runs away into hidding, I.E. him supposidly having it but honestly I don't think so as he's recovered far too quickly and in the past when ever he's fucked up like this he runs away into hiding.

Meanwhile, I just found out that a shipment of ventilators bound for Canada was basically hijacked by the US who bought it off of the shipping company on the tarmac.

Cool. Thanks.
