Disgraced President Trump: ‘Healthcare workers stealing and selling face masks’

Would Icke call him a "reptilian?"

Some think waterboarding nurses who work double shifts under unimaginable circumstances may put Trump in a bad light.  Problem is, the disgraced president didn’t appear to grasp that hospitals are using more because of the global coronavirus pandemic.

AOL News: Donald Trump has suggested hospital workers in New York of stealing and possibly selling face masks “out the back door” during an astounding press conference on Sunday evening.

Standing in the White House’s Rose Garden the president asked reporters to look into the supposed illegal activity but provided no evidence to back up his claims aside from increased demand for supplies from hospitals swamped by the coronavirus pandemic.

“For years [suppliers] have been delivering ten to twenty thousand masks. OK, it’s a New York hospital and it’s packed all the time but how do you go from ten to twenty thousand to 300,000?”

“Something’s going on and you ought to look into it as reporters.

“Where are the masks going? Are they going out the back door? And we have that in a lot of different places so somebody should probably look into that because I just don’t see from a practical standpoint how that’s possible.”

As for masks, they are single use and New York-Presbyterian Hospital for instance employs 20,000 people.

Just seconds before Trump’s comments, a businessman involved in the production of face masks explained he was trying to produce “forty to fifty million” extra face masks to deal with the crisis in the US.

He added: “Even with a significant ramp up in supply, there is still that demand that is much greater than that supply.”

He made no mention of hoarding, stealing or selling of face masks yet Trump said some of his clients “could well be in trouble” over the supposed disappearing of them.

Asked by a reporter to explain his comments more fully, Trump said: “I don’t think it’s hoarding, I think it’s worse than hoarding.”

He added: “I don’t know, I don’t know, I think that’s for other people to check out.”

Earlier on Sunday Trump also accused hospitals of hoarding ventilators but did not cite any evidence to back his accusation.

Critics have accused him of trying to deflect blame over his handling of the crisis.

    • Agreed, he was cast for this role to pump and dump the United states, and channel the take to the six pointed star cabal snakes who surround him.

  1. Trump is in his element. Element of lies, element of boasting, element of fact twisting, etc etc
    How about dressing Trump up in PPE and get him to the health care frontline for a day to feel the ground for himself. A 12hr shift if he can take it. He could use the time to determine for himself the number of disposable masks that he used.
    I’m just wondering why his approval rate has jumped to 47% when he has been screwing up all along?

  2. This is the “President” of America, a man who openly bragged about the murder of General Solemani and several others, a man who openly bragged about the theft of Syrian oil, a compulsive liar and undoubted war criminal and HE accuses front-line medical staff, selfless people knee deep in a pandemic, of theft. This draft dodging moron should apologise immediately or be, unceremoniously, consigned to the dustbin of history !

  3. From What I understand there is a certain upper-class that has gotten a little heads up on what to put their money on. And that crowed is stocked and ready to deal. F-ing $$$ always rules. Sorry just thought I should just interject some reality to the convo.
