I honestly think he means well, but his public relations could use some work.
I would think he was trying to prevent a run on masks a la toilet paper. Let health care people get them. I don't call that a lie. Unlike others. And you know who. Look at his record, he's served many administrations with not a hint of BS. And most of his predictions have come to fruition, unfortunately. I can't find one self serving motive in any of his actions.
