Trump says: “What do we have to lose? I feel very good about it.”
This is just one of several statements Trump has made over the past few days, trying to convince the American people that he has some wonder drug that is going to combat the virus.
In one instance, he’s talking about using two drugs together to combat the corona virus, not approved by the FDA, that (when used together) have been linked with sudden death.
In another instance, he touted using two drugs that have been used for decades to treat malaria. There is no scientific testing (as stated by Fauci) that supports their use with the Coronavirus. And, these drugs are also used by people with lupus and chronic arthritis. Because of Trump’s idiotic ranting about these drugs and implications that they are a wonder drug, there are already shortages for people who need these drugs for their own medical problems.
What do we have to lose?
But, when a reporter (Kelly O’Donnell) on Saturday during a PRESS CONFERENCE, pressed Trump and tried to get some answers from him, some facts, besides this “I feel good about it” crap, Trump responded by telling O’Donnell that she was “an adult” and to stop asking questions.
When O’Donnell explained to Trump that it was the job of the media to try to establish if what the Trump administration was telling people was true, she was criticized as being “hostile.”
Well, I want reporters who are “hostile,” who do their jobs and ask the tough questions to prevent unnecessary deaths sparked by a moron who doesn’t know anything about medicine.
After explaining my concerns to one woman who posted on Facebook, she responded: “Why do you care?”
Why do I care? Why do I care?
Well, let’s see, because people could die because the moron in the White House is disseminating misinformation? Is that maybe enough reason to care?
I guess not because according to the thinking of some people the truth isn’t important, reporters are “making themselves the story.” We must listen to and believe every word of the King, bow down, and for God’s sake women can’t be “hostile,” by asking pointed questions.
This kind of thinking is one reason why we are in the situation we are in.
This is a cult and they are evidently willing to follow it to the death. This is dangerous.
And, yes, I care.
