Trumplets edit National Stockpile website after they’re caught claiming it’s not for states


The Trump administration changed the Strategic National Stockpile website’s description of the program yesterday after White House adviser Jared Kushner falsely claimed that the medical-supply stockpile is not meant to be used to help states. The description was changed to minimize the stockpile’s role in helping states through crises like the current pandemic, but other portions of the official website still make it clear that Kushner was wrong.

We have an appropriate historical guest comment, this morning:

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

George Orwell, 1984

Instead, he enlisted a former roommate to lead a Consultant State to take on the Deep State, with results ranging from the Eastman Kodak fiasco to a mysterious deal to send ventilators to Russia.” https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2020/09/jared-kushner-let-the-markets-decide-covid-19-fate
