It looks like Donald Trump is playing us once again, with his latest attraction in the never ending carnival act that is his presidency. No, he’s not swallowing a flaming sword, but almost — he’s taking hydroxychloroquine.  This announcment, of course, got the press on the horn begging for documentary evidence and that produced a missive from the White House physician — saying Trump was in ” very good health” but not saying a word about him actually taking hydroxychloroquine.

This is very irresponsible, any way you cut it. It’s irresponsible on the doctor’s end and it’s vintage Trump do something crazy and get all the attention, on the other. And either way, it appears to be illegal. If the doctor gave him the prescription, for something that is unapproved, that’s illegal. If the doctor knows Trump is taking the drug without a prescription, that’s illegal. And what is the point? For Donald Trump to show that he knows more than all the doctors? Maybe it’s come to that. Maybe his off-kilter ego just needs to get a lot more people killed while he plays a game of intellectual chicken with the medical establishment. Incredible. But not surprising.

Gee. Do you think drmpf lied? Well, he opened his mouth so yeah… The doctor appears to have worded the short paragraph about their discussing the drug so that it would appear to a semi-illiterate person that he approved its being prescribed for drmpf. The doctor definitely did not say that. But he did state that he believes the potential benefits outweigh the “relative risks” (whatever that means). That statement is irresponsible. Sounds like still another professional willing to risk his career in order to please the toddler-in-chief.

Even that is weasel-worded – it doesn’t say that the treatment is hydroxychloroquine, and it doesn’t say that the doctor approves of using the drug.

Follow the money. Trump and/or his backers have interests in the company that makes the stuff.

This is all ‘marketing’.

Yeah, tRump has an interest in the company, and of course, that company has never been approved for the US market.

Himself may not realize he’s getting a placebo. He certainly doesn’t have the understanding to follow the medical reasons for not prescribing it. (He couldn’t get past the first paragraph of the warning sheet.)

Nancy Pelosi said he was morbidly obese and shouldn’t be taking the stuff because of his age and weight as he is our president and she doesn’t want anything to happen to him. We haven’t seen Pence in a while. Could he be sick? Trump could be taking this poison. We could have a female President any day now.

All he is ‘taking’ is most likely drugs and as much money as he can, before heading off to an insane asylum.

Well, we do know he actually injected Lysol and stuck a UV light up his ass, right? RIGHT???

It is not illegal for a doctor to prescribe a drug for a purpose for which It’s not approved. It’s called “off-label” prescribing and happens fairly often with all kinds of drugs. It isn’t necessarily good practice.
It would be illegal if Drumpf acquired it without a prescription.

Hey orangebob shitpants. Move on to drinking bleach. You said it would work. Prove it. Can’t wait for that doctor’s note.

Remember psychologist John Gartner said in late April that tRump is a sexual sadist and watching the number of deaths from Covid-19 on his watch feeds his pathology? Maybe THAT’S why he’s telling people he’s taking Hydroxicholoroquine…except it’s his rabid base that will follow his actions. So…doesn’t he know he needs every vote he can get??? He should think twice about bumping any more of them off. Oh, wait…he doesn’t even think ONCE, let alone twice.

Where the heck is the 25th Amendment? Can’t we use it NOW to get this freakin liar and idiot OUT of office? Can the Dems reopen impeachment proceedings based on traitortrump’s latest act of completely crazy irresponsible behavior by firing yet another government approved “watchdog” at the State Department and for acting as if taking hydroxychloroquine is “normal” as a preventative medicine to covid-19? This guy is a menace to American society. A danger to the public. Is beyond the pale in terms of the extent to which he will lie about ANYTHING!!!

I wonder: if Himself actually is taking this, who’s his supplier? Because I don’t think the WH doctors would prescribe it.

Does anyone remember Richard Pryor’s tale. “He’d tell a lie and I’d tell a lie and we’d compliment each other’s lie.” That’s dumb and dumber. Pence and Trump
