#BareshelvesBiden trending as Americans vent about empty stores amid supply chain crisis:
The hashtag #BareshelvesBiden is trending on Twitter as Americans across the country flocked to social media over the weekend to vent their frustration about shelves empty of goods and produce at their local stores.
The phrase peaked Sunday evening when it reached number #6 in Twitter’s trending list as users blasted President Biden for what they said was a failure to address the supply chain crisis.
Photographs of bare store shelves at local grocery stories accompanied the hashtag. However, it is unclear what caused the shortage at the stores in photos.
Surging demand for goods coupled with COVID-induced manufacturing and shipping stresses have been blamed for many of the shortfalls, along with wintry weather hitting large swaths of the country. The U.S. and other countries have also experienced shortages in truckers, port employees and other key occupations, again related to the global pandemic and quarantine rules.
One Twitter user posted photos of what was purportedly four different grocery stores in Maryland with store shelves cleared out.
Another user posted a photo of a purported CVS in Philadelphia with a bare-bones medicine area. --->READ MORE HERE
