Trump Invokes Defense Production Act

Trump Invokes Defense Production Act: At a White House press conference, President Trump claimed the COVID-19 crises was “a very unforeseen thing,” and then invoked the Defense Production Act (DPA), a set of emergency powers that give the federal government the ability to ramp up the production of medical supplies such as masks, ventilators, gloves and other equipment to help the U.S. medical system respond to coronavirus cases.

Wait a minute, I thought the administration deals with situations like these with “thoughts and prayers?” If not, what the hell’s the point of putting someone with absolutely no medical background whatsoever like Mike Pence in charge?

So, does enacting the Defense Production Act (DPA) mean the administration no longer considers coronavirus crises to be a huge hoax anymore? Of course, in all fairness, who could have known a coronavirus hoax could be so costly?

Anyway, speaking of ramping up production, it’s pretty obvious what we really need at a time like this — building more luxury golf and resort hotels. Otherwise, the next thing you know, a huge mess like this, could end up cutting into a fella’s golfing weekends.
