Trump Says He’s Done Taking Hydroxychloroquine For Protection Against Coronavirus
President Trump announced last week that he was taking hydroxychloroquine as a means of helping to protect himself against the coronavirus, which had infected several individuals close to him over the last several weeks. As you well know, the media immediately jumped to attack him over taking the medication, because, well, that’s just what all these fake news outlets do, right?
Well, during an appearance on Full Measure With Sharyl Attkisson which aired on Sunday, President Trump said he’s now done taking the medication.
Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:
“Finished, just finished,” Trump said in an interview with Sinclair Broadcast’s program Full Measure With Sharyl Attkisson that aired Sunday. “And by the way, I’m still here. To the best of my knowledge, here I am.”
Trump has frequently touted hydroxychloroquine as a way to prevent and treat the virus, though there has been heated debate over the safety and effectiveness of the drug against COVID-19.
“I believe in it enough that I took a program because I had two people in the White House that tested positive,” he said. “But hydroxy has had tremendous, if you look at it, tremendous, rave reviews,” Trump said.
The president had discussed this particular precaution with his physician, noting both the pros and cons of taking hydroxychloroquine, before deciding that it was worth the risks to take it.
Here’s a man who wouldn’t ask others to do what he himself wasn’t already willing to do. That says a lot about his character, don’t you think?
The mainstream media has been against the president on this medication from the very first time he spoke about it. Left-wing pundits, politicians, and celebrities would rather see folks suffer with this horrific illness than as to have something available to them that could potentially save their lives. That’s how much they hate Trump, how much they feel the need to obey their overlords and assault him with every move he makes.
What a despicable time in modern politics.
