One Fox News host made an unbelievable attack on President Trump.
Trump wasn’t about to let him get away with it.
You’ll never believe the ultimatum Donald Trump just leveled at Fox News.
One of the most shocking parts of the coronavirus outbreak is the remarkable degree to which medicine has been politicized.
Donald Trump mentioned the studies of hydroxychloroquine looked promising; studies as to the drug’s effective use against coronavirus are currently ongoing.
Several Democrat governors banned doctors from having the ability to treat their coronavirus patients with hydroxychloroquine if they felt it was necessary.
The mainstream media tried to blame Trump for the death of an Arizona man who died after the man decided to ingest fish tank cleaner because the name sounded like hydroxychloroquine.
The man was a Democrat whose wife had recently donated to a Democrat PAC that promotes “pro-science resistance.”
The Democrats also wanted to make it seem like Trump was making a huge profit off hydroxychloroquine but it is no longer patented, one of the lowest-cost drugs in America and the amount of money Trump has in companies that produce the drug are minuscule.
Over five million prescriptions for hydroxychloroquine are given out every year and it’s remarkably safe.
The hubbub over the fact that Donald Trump is taking hydroxychloroquine is a complete overreaction and Fox News decided to join the frenzy.
On his show Your World with Neil Cavuto, the anchor said that there were certain people the drug would kill.
“Those who took it, in a vulnerable population,” Cavuto said, “including those with respiratory or other conditions, they died. I want to stress again — they died. If you are in a risky population here and you are taking this as a preventative treatment to ward off the virus or, in a worst-case scenario, you are dealing with the virus, and you are in this vulnerable population, it will kill you. I cannot stress that enough. This will kill you.
“So again, whatever benefit the president says this has — and certainly has had for those suffering from malaria, dealing with lupus,” he continued. “This is a leap that should not be taken casually by those watching at home or assuming, ‘well, the President of the United States says it’s okay.’”
Their outcry against President Trump taking hydroxychloroquine is ridiculous.
“@FoxNews is no longer the same. We miss the great Roger Ailes. You have more anti-Trump people, by far, than ever before. Looking for a new outlet!” President Trump said on Twitter.
While there is no data that yet indicates that the drug will stop Trump from getting the coronavirus, it’s not outlandish or dangerous to take hydroxychloroquine under a doctor’s care as a preventative measure.
It is already given out as a preventive measure for malaria.
If Trump was going to Africa, he would likely be put on hydroxychloroquine.
There is, however, a risk that people will start self-medicating and all prescription medicine should be taken under a doctor’s care, especially with experimental treatments.
