“If you are going to the grocery store to get ready for winter, please only buy what you must and leave some for other people! You might have seen empty shelves in some grocery stores because of supply chain problems, but you don’t need to purchase more than you normally need.”
Above is a new tweet from the DCHS And Emergency Management Agency completely going against what President Joe Biden told the country last Wednesday that photos of empty shelves are fake news.
Biden, talking about his BBB law, said, “First fix the supply chain… We hear dire warnings about how these problems might create a real crisis close to the holidays. So we took action.”
The president then went on to tell the country, “eighty-nine percent” of grocery stores “are full, which is only a few points under what it was before the covid pandemic.”
He said the photos of Americans seen on TV of empty shelves are misleading.
If supermarket shelves are not empty, as Biden says. Why would DC HSEMA give a notice to area citizens about empty shelves and ask that they not panic hoard before and during adverse weather this winter?
Something is wrong here, and it looks delusional that the 79yo president could be out of touch with reality.
For a big dose of reality, the internet was filled with social media users sharing pictures of empty shelves at grocery stores around the nation.
Last week, the editor of SupermarketGuru.com, Phil Lempert, said to NPR that supermarket shelves were bare again. He said it was a “perfect storm.”
Industry experts, like Conagra Brands’ leader Sean Connolly warned its United States plants could be restricted for the next month because of Omicron-related absences.
Another person, the CEO of Albertsons, is expecting continued supply chain problems “over the next six weeks.”
So if the country’s food supply is having problems and store shelves are empty as DC HSEMA tells people not to panic buy and hoard, then why is Joe Biden misleading Americans about how everything is fine?
Oh yes, the midterms are almost here.
