When will the three stooges admit their part in this? As you now know, this can mostly been avoided. The USA Today did a fact check and yes Joe and Barack got us into this mess.
The Obama administration used and did not replenish the nation’s emergency stockpile of medical supplies, including N95 masks.
Our rating: True
We rate this claim TRUE because it is supported by our research. There is no indication that the Obama administration took significant steps to replenish the supply of N95 masks in the Strategic National Stockpile after it was depleted from repeated crises. Calls for action came from experts at the time concerned for the country’s ability to respond to future serious pandemics. Such recommendations were, for whatever reason, not heeded.
Our fact-check sources:
- Department of Health and Human Services, Strategic National Stockpile: History
- Government Accountability Office, 2003 Report on Public Health Capacity
- Health Security, Personal Protective Equipment Supply Chain: Lessons Learned from Recent Public Health Emergency Responses
- Homeland Security Council, 2005 National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza
- National Institute of Health, The Strategic National Stockpile: Origin, Policy Foundations, and Federal Context

Nancy openly called for folks to go out and ignore the pandemic, She even encouraged folks to go out in Chinatown. No masks for her.
Pelosi Says Trump Downplayed COVID Threat, but Backed Chinatown Visits Amid Early Virus Fears
And of course we have Harris who along with Joe biden was telling folks to not take the vaccine if from Trump. She said listen to the fauch who was telling us that the Vaccines weren’t coming till 2021 early 2022.
Harris says she wouldn’t trust Trump on any vaccine released before election.
So when someone asks how we got here, tell them to go ask Biden, Pelosi, and Harris.9
