The Democrats are playing politics with the Coronavirus, as we knew they would.
They started out faking “unity” and now, after they just blocked the Senate Coronavirus relief package, the phony “unity mask” is off.
The tone is changing too…
Everyone is now pointing fingers at President Trump blaming him for everything under the sun.
Take for example the shortage of respirator masks.
The Dems have been screaming and yelling about masks, and blaming President Trump for the shortage.
But there’s one big problem with that…
The reason we’re short is not thanks to Trump, it’s thanks to Obama.
What happened was that during the H1N1 outbreak we depleted our supply of masks.
Obama admin was told they needed to be replenished but they never took action – and now we’re in this mess.
That’s right, the shortage of N95 masks can be traced back to the H1N1 (swine flu) pandemic of 2009… when Barack Obama was president.
A different story from the Los Angeles Times published last week goes into more detail about what happened after the swine flu pandemic depleted the supply. According to their story, “After the swine flu epidemic in 2009, a safety-equipment industry association and a federally sponsored task force both recommended that depleted supplies of N95 respirator masks […] be replenished by the stockpile.” The problem is that didn’t happen. According to Charles Johnson, president of the International Safety Equipment Association, about 100 million N95 respirator masks were used up during the swine flu pandemic of 2009-2010, but, he said was unaware of any “major effort to restore the stockpile to cover that drawdown.”
In short, even though the Obama administration was advised to replenish the national stockpile of the N95 respirator masks, they didn’t. Despite the fact the media traced the cause of the shortage back to 2009, they accuse Trump of poor planning and trying to deflect responsibility. It doesn’t take a genius to know that in 2009 Barack Obama was president, but not once in either story did Bloomberg or the Los Angeles Times link the failure to replenish the N95 respirator masks with Obama or his administration, after they apparently ignored recommendations to do so.

This is why we must be diligent and speak loudly and spread the truth.
The mainstream media is on the warpath to use this virus to hurt President Trump, who is doing an amazing job keeping us all safe during this difficult time.
Pray for our nation, all Americans, and President Trump.
