THE GOOD: President Donald Trump’s campaign has spent tens of thousands of dollars donating meals to hospitals across the country. They call up local restaurants, make large orders, and have the food be delivered to hospitals in Michigan, New York, New Jersey and Washington state.

THE BAD: Shortly after the news broke that Samaritan’s Purse was setting up a field hospital, LGBT activists and progressive journalists condemned the organization is “run by the notoriously anti-LGBTQ+ minister Franklin Graham.”

IOW, it’s a Christian organization that operates on biblical principles, one of which is to provide care to whoever needs it. If these twits would read Jesus’ Parable of the Good Samaritan (with footnotes, so they could get the significance of the players), they might possibly shut their traps.

AND THE UGLY: 3M put their employees on 24 hours a day making masks. I’ve heard President Trump praise them repeatedly for their great effort. Now we hearthey’re not selling them to Americans!

Yesterday, Jared Moskowitz, a Florida emergency management official, told Tucker Carlson that 3M distributors have been selling masks American healthcare workers need to foreign buyers who offer to pay more. “The idea that an American company is selling masks away from our hospitals…doctors…the real heroes on the front lines is … really criminal.”

“For the last several weeks, we have had a boiler room chasing down 3M authorized distributors [and] brokers representing that they sell the N95 masks, only get to warehouses that are completely empty,” Moskowitz said.

“[We are] being told that our shipments are on cargo planes and the flights don’t even appear. We are chasing ghosts. I just decided to turn up the heat and tell people what is actually happening in the N95 mask space.”

“They’re specifically saying, ‘Listen, we are sorry your order got pushed down, but … there are foreign countries who do business differently and they’re showing up with cash.'”

“I can’t, other emergency management directors, CEOs of hospitals can’t get this life-saving PPE [Personal Protective Equipment] because a company decided to make a globalist decision and not put America first.”

I asked [3M] if they put out any guidance to prevent the behavior and the answer was no,” Moskowitz added. The company also told Moskowitz that they had no stock to sell him, despite producing close to 10 million masks a day.

Moskowitz emphasized that his criticism is not directed towards the “workers in the factories at 3M who are working 24 hours a day to try to create this life-saving PPE. This is about the executives who decided not to put America first and it’s going to have devastating consequences.”

Earlier in the week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said his state was on the hunt for N95 masks and called the procurement process “shady as hell,” adding that despite ordering “so many,” they only get “a little bit here and a little bit there.”
