As the coronavirus pandemic continues to upend nearly every aspect of our public lives, the media has continued to ruthlessly blame Trump for the problems our nation is facing.
Despite the fact that his administration isn't at fault, the left has proven they are going to use this as an opportunity to smear Trump for all its worth.
But unfortunately for Democrats, some news has come in that flips their narrative on its head.
I'm sure you've heard about the nationwide shortage of N95 masks that has plagued our medical professionals.
The media has given it tons of coverage, of course trying to say if the Trump administration were more on top of it we wouldn't be having this issue.
But here's what they won't tell you.
The federal stockpile of N95 masks was actually depleted when Obama was president, and his administration ignored recommendations to replenish them.
Check it out, via The Washington Examiner:
The national shortage of N95 respirator masks can be traced back to 2009 after the H1N1 swine flu pandemic, when the Obama administration was advised to replenish a national stockpile but did not, according to reports from Bloomberg News and the Los Angeles Times.
The Trump administration is scrambling to replenish a stockpile of protective medical gear for healthcare workers and patients as the coronavirus sweeps across the nation. N95 respirator masks are one of the most needed medical supplies amid the outbreak.
A federally backed task force and a safety equipment organization both recommended to the Obama administration that the stockpile be replenished with the 100 million masks used after the H1N1 outbreak.
Charles Johnson, president of the International Safety Equipment Association, said that advice was never heeded.
“Our association is unaware of any major effort to restore the stockpile to cover that drawdown,” he said.
Where's the media been on this?
Why did the Obama administration leave our country so vulnerable to the possibility of a pandemic when they had just seen one hit the country?
Why did Obama and Biden flat-out ignore the recommendations to replace the masks (which we desperately need right now)?
These questions will never see the light of day from the mainstream media.
Instead they'll just keep blaming Trump for what was so clearly Obama's responsibility.
