Everyone in Oklahoma should get Trump's personal phone number and be able to scream at him Sam Kinison Style.

Let's hope animal murdering Don Jr used some of his own money to corner the market on this drug that doesn't work, but his father touted ... along with bleach and UV light.

Mike Lindell ... paging Mike Lindell ...

Time for a "Hydroxychloriquine" infomercial on OAN, NewsMax, and FoxNews!

I'm sure the taxpayers of Oklahoma could have found a better place to spend $2 million of their hard earned money.

So, they didn't try to return it until Biden was in office?

Maybe they thought he promised to take it back on one of his continual rambling " from day one" campaign speeches.

I hope they kept a receipt, to present at the customer service window at the manufacturer's office.

The governor of Oklahoma is a moron and he has found plenty of folks just like himself to run this state, one of the most backward places in the US. The state bought up this worthless stuff in an effort to suck up to Trump, and now they are ducking and diving in an effort to avoid blame. Gov. Stitt is up for re-election in 2022, and the local newspaper is already reporting that less than half of polled voters support his remaining in office. Setting $2MM on fire probably will not help his case, especially when OK has one of the highest rates of Covid infection in the US. But at least he doesn't have a mask mandate in place...

I always have a little chuckle when I think about all the fools out there that are now wondering what to do with the 100,000 rolls of TP they have stuffed in their basements.

I do too... I always keep a little stockpile. I hate having to run out and get it because my wife took the last of it without saying anything - pet peeve. When Covid hit I had more than normal - I think it was on sale and I picked up 2 of those monster packs right before the rush hit. And I am glad I had it last year because we almost ran out. You still heard about those people who were doing an unconscionable thing during a state of emergency - profiteering.

I still don't get it but fear is a powerful motivator and then there were the simply greedy - trying to take advantage of the situation. I was more worried about food... As in so many of my staples were not available (beans, rice, eggs, bread, etc)

Like using napkins from Taco Bell. Coffee filters. Phone book pages. Drop and drag in the back yard.

Maybe if your stupid cult leader wasnt such a moron there wouldnt have been such a long list of things to do on day 1.

Sorry the exhaustive list of problems your cult leader created is so tedious for you to hear.

Lawyers - can trump be sued for all the financial damage he did during his presidency?

Can oklahoma sue him for selling snake oil?

Can the US sue him for damage his cult did to the capital?

Can family members of dead anti maskers sue him for killing their loved ones?

Well.. at least Oklahoma is prepared for a big Malaria outbreak.

Oklahoma has enough hydroxychloroquine to last OK's lupus patients for 300 years.

Good luck. Colonel Potter tried to return chloroquine for primaquine. Look where it got him.

Why try to return it when they can keep some and sell the rest?

It's not like it doesn't have legitimate use.

The orange turd says "What do we have to lose?" How about $2 million taxpayer dollars?
