Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, April 06, 2020

President Donald Trump has urged doctors in recent weeks to treat COVID-19 patients with hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug that has not yet been proven safe or effective for use on people infected with the novel coronavirus.

Despite pushback from Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the White House coronavirus task force, the president has continued to promote the drug during daily news briefings on the pandemic.

If Trump's top infectious disease expert isn't behind the president's rush to adopt hydroxychloroquine as a treatment, who is? Some of the usual players, turns out.

Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani told The Washington Post he's advocated for the drug in one-on-one phone calls with Trump.

Two other Trump loyalists who lack medical expertise - Fox News' Sean Hannity and White House trade adviser Peter Navarro - have also been touting hydroxychloroquine's potential.

"Your test results are in, Mr. President. Your blood pressure is a little high."

"We'll see about that. Somebody get Rudy on the phone."

I got nothing to say except it will be poetic justice when these cretins get the virus that they sold as a Democratic hoax. If and when they do I will not be a hypocrite and pretend I care because I really just won't.
