Donald Trump stunned the world Monday when he claimed that he has been take hydroxychloroquine for “a week and a half now” with the knowledge of the White House physician. The Hill:

The president said he consulted with the White House doctor about taking the drug, but it was not explicitly recommended for him since he has not tested positive for the virus.

“I asked him what do you think,” Trump said. “He said, ‘Well if you’d like it.’ I said, ‘Yeah, I’d like it. I’d like to take it.’ ”

He said he’s been taking the drug for about a week-and-a-half along with a zinc supplement, adding he based his decision on positive reviews he’s heard from front-line health care workers who have had good results treating patients with it.

“Here’s my evidence: I get a lot of positive calls about it,” Trump said.

“So far, I seem to be OK,” he added.

He hasn’t provided documentary evidence of the dosage, and perhaps this was meant strictly as a pubicity stunt. Who knows? But Fox’s Neil Caputo makes no bones about how this is not a good idea.

I’m going to wait to hear how much he’s taking and how often. If this is true, it’s reckless and if it’s not true, it’s just one more instance of Trump manipulating the media and manipulating Americans, to their detriment. Another day, another low bottom in Trump world.

How apropos it would be if Trump-O the Assclown was done in by his own arrogance and stupidity. One can hope.

Here’s an article by Dana Milbank (so ?????) on 45 showing symptoms as of April 24, 2020. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/04/24/trump-wants-us-inject-bleach-he-must-have-odd-hydroxychloroquine/

Has anyone read the side effects: https://www.drugs.com/sfx/hydroxychloroquine-side-effects.html

The perfect irony would be if he contracted COVID anyway. I read the link with all the possible side effects. It is not as safe as idiot man said, “it won’t hurt you”.

Does Trump or his acolytes have any financial holdings in the company that makes this stuff?

Oh. The answer is yes.

So this is like Trump Vodka, The Chemical Edition, and he’s shilling it from the position of President!

He lies about everything else, does he really think we’re actually as stupid as he thinks we are. The guy’s a germaphobe and afraid to contact a bacteria. Now to say that he’s taking unproven meds! Probably just to make a buck. I sure feel sorry for him on Judgement Day!!
