“Trump lies to and contradicts a nurse about coronavirus protective gear

Sophia Thomas, the head of the Natl. Assoc. of Nurse Practitioners: ’PPE has been sporadic, but it’s been manageable’
Donald Trump, a president: ’Sporadic for you, but not sporadic for a lot of other people.’
Guess who was correct? The impeached and manifestly wacko tweeter-in-chief, or the nurse who is actually treating Americans who are sick with the novel coronavirus?
A Louisiana nurse who serves as the leader of the National Association of Nurse Practitioners told Trump in the Oval Office today, National Nurse Day, that coronavirus protective gear access is ‘sporadic.’
At an event marking National Nurse Day at the Oval Office, acting U.S. President Donald Trump contradicted a nurse during an exchange about COVID-19 protective gear, which hospitals around the nation are begging for, while the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner flies around in private jets wheeling and dealing over.
There is no bottom, there is nothing so deranged he won’t do.”

The Nurse Practitioner explained that it’s not just her experience but that she’s heard reports from across the country. It is true that Trump visited a mask-making facility, but the need is huge.

Notice that he is threatening to export masks, apparently hell-bent to kill US medical professionals. Maybe so he can bring in foreign doctors from India? Plus, if there are extras, the American public can use them. They aren’t that expensive.
If the world survives until next year without Trump nuking us, it will be a miracle. Deadly Covid-19 is still tame compared to what he could do, including but not limited to nuclear war. We hope and pray that the only “October Surprise” is a safe Coronavirus cure. Just because it’s announced as a cure doesn’t mean it’s safe, either.
