Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, April 01, 2020

Despite having committed to transferring 2,000 ventilators in military stocks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Health and Human Services to fight the coronavirus outbreak, the Pentagon has not shipped any of them because the agencies have not asked for them or provided a shipping location, the Pentagon's top logistics official said Tuesday.

What is Trump waiting for?
He said he knew covid was going to be bad for months. Why does he have ventilators sitting idle?

He must want New Yorkers to die.

Covid will remove lots of rent control renters. Smart!

@#1 ... What is Trump waiting for? ...

Pres Trump has mis-managed this crisis from the beginning.

Maybe my use of "mis-managed" is wrong, because that usage implies there was a coordinated attempt to manage in the first place.

I'm still not convinced there was such a coordinated attempt.

Just like Puerto Rico and Hurricane Maria... shipping goods to Puerto Rican ports withouth assuring the goods could be transported from those ports to those who needed them.

Incompetence extraordinaire.

"Why does he have ventilators sitting idle?"

Is that a rhetorical question?

"He must want New Yorkers to die."

Well, there is a census this year.

I have no doubt he's waiting for swing states to request them.

There will be no shortage of a response for states like OH, PA, MI and WI (especially if the governors say "pretty please President Trump") while CA, NY, WA, CO ect can all go f--- themselves.

And his base will cheer it. Even if he admitted to that being the plan.

Maybe these are some of the 'excess' ventilators that Trump's planning to sell to some other country.

Putin must have called for help and Trump is trying to figure out how to sell trading US lives for Russian ones to his base.

Fat Nixon has ham handed this pandemic because to him it was not as important as his rallies and daily twitterling his polls numbers and attacking democrats.

Never have I seen such an incompetent, childish and selfish person in a position of power.

He was warned for months before this and called it a hoax, no big deal, etc.

Now he is refusing to step and use the "war powers" he has claimed as his and act as a purchasing agent for the desperately needed ventilators and letting the states compete with each other, FEMA and foreign countries driving up the price. To hell with the people so long as corporate 'murica can profit.

Now you get him holding campaign rallies at pandemic response events with the idiot my pillow douche thanking god for him on national tv. What a ------- joke.

His approach to this can be summed up when he said he had a "hunch" that the CDC was wrong and this would be much less severe than the flu.

Elect a clown, expect a circus.
