Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 20, 2020

After Trump claimed a study that found hydroxychloroquine was not effective in treating COVID-19 was a "Trump enemy statement," Anderson Cooper interviewed a researcher who worked on the study. Cooper asked David Holtgrave, Dean, School of Public Health, University at Albany, Suny if he did the research to create a "Trump enemy statement." Cooper: "When you hear that, I mean, I - I - I hesitant to even ask you this question because it seems insulting because you are a professional but I - I have to ask you, is there any - was there any animus toward President Trump or did that even enter your mind when doing this study?" Holtgrave answers: "No, not at all and I think that when anyone goes into a treatment study, given the severity of COVID-19 as a disease, given the scope of this pandemic, everyone who's doing research, looking at different treatments, hopes those treatments work. You go into these - this line of work hoping that one could find some medication, some vaccines that are going to alleviate human suffering and save lives. So if anything, it would be great to be able to come on your show and say if people took these two pills, they would be doing much better and have - have recovered. But when we look at this literature, that's not what we see so far in terms of treatment."

A bonkers conspiracy theory is his Base's favorite kind. They've been desensitized to facts and will believe anything now; the crazier the better.... like pedophile pizza parlors or that Trump as a, "stable genius".

They treated it the same way because they didn't like who he was or his findings.

Trump does love his misinformation and uses it effectively.

It's said that a lie can travel from coast to coast and back again while the truth is tying it's shoelaces.

How ironic that Trump sees no problem with voting by mail himself, isn't it?

Donald Trump is a dangerous man because he is barking mad.

I refer you to Roman history, and what happened to people when Roman leaders arrogated enough personal power to do something about the conspiracies they saw around them.

I encourage all Trump supporters to prove donald right by taking hydroxychloroquine. But make sure you take a MAGA dose, don't listen to these fake doctors.

What's funny is that since he lied about taking Hydroxychloroquine Diaper Dumper Donnie's polling numbers are tanking again. They had been recovering since he stopped the daily Dotard show, but he's even back down to -9 in the Reichwing Rasmussen Report, which is something. I'm wondering if COVID-45 moving into the heartland is starting to change some changeable minds about him.
