Kellianne Conway reappeared on Fox News on Monday night to criticize President Joe Biden’s administration over inflation and current supply chain problems.
And a former adviser to Donald Trump has made one of her most daring statements yet out of control.
“I worked in this White House for four years,” she told Sean Hannity, referring to her time with Trump. “We haven’t even heard of that. There was no supply chain crisis. There was no inflation. “
Supply chain problems were one of the biggest stories of 2020, with Trump as president and Conway at the White House as the onset of the coronavirus pandemic sparked buying panic. This, in turn, has led to a shortage of everything from toilet paper to pasta across the country, resulting in empty supermarket shelves.
“In the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the US was hit by one of the most severe supply chain crises in modern history,” Tinglong Dai, a professor at the Johns Hopkins Carey School of Business, told Newswise, noting that many of the shortages lasted for months.
When supermarkets were stocked with goods, many introduced strict rationing for essential items such as flour and meat. Food shortages, coupled with job losses due to the pandemic, have resulted in multimillion-dollar lines lining up at food banks.
In addition, the essentials needed to control the spread of the virus disappeared as the supply chain dried up: masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, soap, disinfectant wipes and more were difficult or impossible to find.
Twitter users were reminded of this recent story, and many of them shared photos of the 2020 supermarket scenes:
