The trial balloon that Donald Trump floated on Monday, that he was taking hydroxychloroquine, with the permission of his White House physician, turned into a lead zeppelin and bombed, and it’s only Wednesday. Now Trump has announced that he will finish up taking hydroxychlorooquine in two days. Naturally, this statement gives credence to the theory that many people had to begin with, that he was lying through his teeth the entire time, just getting another distraction out there into the news cycle, so that the fact that over 90,000 Americans are dead and testing is so pathetically far behind is not focused on. Anything but that, because for that, he has no answer.
He also said he took "an original dose" of azithromycin as a preventative. But "you don't have to take it simultaneously". Because, apparently one dose of antibiotics is how it works nowadays.

For the sake of the country, Trump's doctors could consider giving him antipsychotics. They could just tell him that the pills are hydroxychloroquine. He'd never miss a dose.

Take it all now, get it over with. I'm a doctor. That's what I say. I'm Dr. McCoy, from Space Force.

You mean for the imaginary medication his doctors are giving him that’s actually skittles?

This last tweeter might be on to something. Let’s see what Trump comes up with to distract us on Friday. That’s all this is, is a game show, and our nation’s capital is the set.
