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.
