They deserve it…
Trump recently announced that he was taking hydroxychloroquine to combat the coronavirus, and received many reactions. Press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was having none of it, and decided to call out all the media outlets for their “apoplectic” reactions.
She went onto “Fox and Friends,” and said,” We have a lot of information about the safety of this drug, though ultimately you make that decision with your doctor. So some of the misreporting on other networks — these apoplectic [analyses] of hydroxychloroquine — ignore the fact that tens of millions of people around the world have used this drug for other purposes.”
“The president has said pretty widely that this is a drug that he had looked at with optimism. But nevertheless he said that this is a decision that must be made with a doctor, as he’s repeatedly said.”
One of the “apoplectic” people was Fox News host Neil Cavuto who said, “All right, that was stunning. The president of the United States just acknowledged that he is taking hydroxochloquine, ah, a drug really meant to treat malaria and lupus. The fact of the matter is, though, when the president said, ‘What have you got to lose?’ in a number of studies, those certain vulnerable, the population, have one thing to lose: their lives.”
However, Trump’s physician stepped in and said:
“As has been previously reported, two weeks ago one of the President’s support staff tested positive for COVID-19. The President is in very good health and has remained symptom-free. He receives regular COVID-19 testing, all negative to date.”
“After numerous discussions he and I had regarding the evidence for and against the use of hydroxychloroquine, we concluded the potential benefit from treatment outweighed the relative risks.”
