As COVID-19 cases rise and temperatures fall, stockpiling season is officially in full swing. A new customer survey released by Deloitte this month found that tons of grocery shoppers are buying up far more food items than they actually need. According to store owners, there's been a sharp uptick in sales for meats, frozen pizzas, baking foods, and all sorts of dry goods. Canned foods, meanwhile, remain in high demand. A poll conducted by LendingTree found that canned goods rank high among the items consumers are snatching up at the grocery store right now.But there's at least one particular canned good that's even harder to find than others: Canned corn. According to a new report in The Wall Street Journal, there are several reasons that this pantry staple is suddenly in short supply. (Related: 8 Grocery Items That May Soon Be in Short Supply.)For starters, the corn that's grown specifically for the purposes of being canned is a very "small portion of the U.S. crop." It's only harvested once a year, and it's usually canned "right after the harvest in late summer, and that yield is the entire supply for the year." The number of farmers who specialize in canned corn for canned-good giants such as Del Monte and Green Giant is also quite small. According to the Journal, the previous surge in demand for canned goods after the coronavirus led "retailers [to] quickly [blow] through inventories."That's not all. The report cites supply chain issues as another driving force in the current scarcity of canned corn, noting that the trucking companies who distribute such goods downsized their fleets last year in an effort to boost their profits, which left the haulers in a bad position to meet the new surge in demand earlier this year.In other words: For canned corn, the coronavirus was something of a perfect storm, as suppliers didn't have enough supply, distributors didn't have a full force, and canning season—when stocks could be replenished—fell at the end of summer. Though canned-corn brands say they're going to boost production by 25 percent this year, it doesn't change the fact that you're unlikely to find it in abundance on stores shelves right now.

Ever thought you’d hear President Trump admit he failed at managing the COVID-19 pandemic? Us neither, but that didn’t stop the Biden campaign from taking some cues from the Trump campaign in crafting its latest attack ad.Coming in response to the Trump campaign’s ad released last week, which featured comments from Dr. Anthony Fauci that he says were taken out of context and used in without his permission, the Biden campaign edited together clearly different, out-of-context snippets of Trump’s public speeches to make it sound like Trump is saying, “I am failing at managing the coronavirus outbreak, so I used Dr. Fauci in an ad to say I’m doing a good job. But it’s fake. He never said that.”“He meant it for the task force, not me. Sorry to Dr. Fauci, and sorry to everyone else,” the pieced together clips of Trump also say.Also Read: Fauci Says Trump Campaign Should Take Down 'Completely Out of Context' AdLast week, the Trump campaign released a new ad that included a clip of Fauci that appeared as if the nation’s top infectious diseases expert was praising the president for his handling of the pandemic.“President Trump is recovering from the coronavirus, and so is America,” a narrator for the ad says. “Together we rose to meet the challenge, protecting our seniors, getting them life-saving drugs in record time, sparing no expense.”Fauci then appears in the ad to say, “I can’t imagine that anybody could be doing more.”But in a statement on Sunday, Fauci said the comments were attributed without his permission and taken out of context. And, indeed, the clip itself is taken from a March interview Fauci did on Fox News, in which he was speaking more broadly about the efforts that federal public health officials and the White House’s coronavirus task force have been undertaking to respond to the pandemic.Also Read: Fauci Says Quote in New Trump Ad Was Taken Out of Context, Without His PermissionOn Monday, Fauci also said on CNN that the Trump campaign should take down the ad, which he called “disappointing” and “completely out of context.”But the Trump campaign has defended the ad by saying they used Fauci’s “own words.” “The video is from a nationally broadcast television interview in which Dr. Fauci was praising the work of the Trump Administration. The words spoken are accurate, and directly from Dr. Fauci’s mouth,” Tim Murtaugh, the campaign’s communications director, said in a statement.Take a look at the Biden campaign ad below:Donald Trump is running TV ads taking Dr. Fauci out of context and without his permission.So, here’s a message from the President in his own words. pic.twitter.com/WCYbIfrQLR— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) October 12, 2020Read original story Trump Admits He Failed in Biden Campaign’s Deliciously Petty Ad At TheWrap

The hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday questioned President Donald Trump’s behavior since his release from Walter Reed Medical Center Monday.The morning show played a clip of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying Trump is in “an altered state right now,” so she doesn’t know how to respond to his behavior. From there, the show played clips of Trump calling his COVID-19 diagnosis “a blessing from God,” calling for his political rivals to be arrested and calling Sen. Kamala Harris “this monster.”“I guess this is a very sad indictment or just a sad statement on his life: He doesn’t have anybody close enough to him, that loves him enough, that he trusts enough, that can keep him from continuing to destroy himself and politically, destroying his campaign and politically, destroying Republicans across the country,” host Joe Scarborough said.Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski agreed that if they were on the same type of medication Trump is on following his COVID-19 diagnosis, people in their lives would take time off to take care of them.“There is nothing normal about this. He’s not — does not sound like he is equipped right now to be President of the United States and may not be until his steroid treatment runs its course,” said Scarborough, a former GOP congressman.Watch the hosts discuss whether Trump should “take a rest for a week and let Mike Pence assume the presidency until he gets better” above.Read original story ‘Morning Joe’ Says Trump Doesn’t Have Anyone Who ‘Loves Him Enough’ to Help Him Post-COVID At TheWrap
