“Take Only What You Need:” DC Asks People To Limit Supermarket Purchases As Empty Shelves Persist

By Tyler Durden

“If you’re hitting the grocery store to prepare for winter weather, please just buy what you need and leave some for others! You may have noticed empty shelves in some stores due to national supply chain issues, but there is no need to buy more than you normally would.” 

Above is a recent tweet from the DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (DC HSEMA) completely contradicting what President Biden told the nation last Wednesday that images of empty store shelves in supermarkets are fake news.

Biden, talking about his Build Back Better legislation, said, “First fix the supply chain… We heard dire warnings about how these supply chain problems could create a real crisis around the holidays. So we acted.”

The president proceded to tell the nation, “eighty-nine percent” of supermarkets “are full, which is only a few points below what it was before the pandemic.”

He said the images Americans see on television of empty shelves are misleading.
