President Trump Takes Hydroxychloroquine

Updated on May 19, 2020

POTUS is, let's face it, an overweight, fat, man in his seventies with known heart conditions with a man his age. While he does not smoke, his diet seems to be along the more unhealthy side. Stress levels of his current job are high for a man in his condition. While he is generally in good health for now, things can rapidly change when anyone hits their seventies. We all have known someone that when they enter their seventies, changes can happen for the worse quickly,

Trump does have some small interest in the promotion of the malaria drug that he has been taking (so he claims, but is this just another lie?) for about two weeks since the WH staff has been infected by the Covid-19 virus. Trump's interest in stock in the primary company that makes hydroxychloroquine is small, about $1400 in stock value for now, but the logic of taking it himself seems like a teenager defying his parents, in this case, medical experts, just to prove them wrong. This is a 73-yr. old man who is doing it for headlines, news cycles, and to appease his base who are of similar mind about authority and government.

The problem with his petulant behavior is that it can kill. Numerous studies show that it can have serious adverse effects on those taking it and any impact it has on the virus is minimal at best. It is not a vaccine. It is not going to help one very much who has the virus. Sure, there are a handful of cases that Trump uses to promote this gimmick, but as medical experts state, those are exceptions and maybe not even the case that drug was the cure. Even his own doctor was not in favor that he takes it and perhaps his medical license should be taken away for allowing Trump to do so.

Even Trump could suffer from side effects or death. While many would welcome this for a variety of reasons, serious illness or death would leave us with Pence, an placeholder of a VP. Trump's demise would secure a Democratic win in the 2020 race, so many are hoping this will come to pass. But, still, the trauma this would cause an already divided America would put the nation into deeper dark times. Even if Trump is not impacted by the drug, others would idolize him (as stupid as this sounds) will be attracted to take it and they could die or become seriously sick. if so, who this diehards then blame Trump?

Trump is even trying to win in a field that he is no expert in. He is ignoring and suggesting things that medical experts differ on. He does not give a shit. He does not care if followers also take it and if they get sick or die, oh well.

Let's hope that the drug will prove this president wrong,

      “Biden is a pedophile, and Obama needs to go to prison.”

      Both which, of course, apply to Trump.

      It’s pure evil, is what it is. Like doctors being thrown out of windows in Russia.

      Here, we have a cabal of evil people, hiding in religion, and relishing the suffering they cause to innocents.

      It’s hideous.

      Potus provides entertainment and amusement for us, on the other side of the pond. Injecting disinfectant was another classic that comes to mind. He's a bit of light relief from the sad news that fills our news bulletins at this time. I wonder what crazy scheme he will suggest next?

      That’s right. We can’t even agree Corona is real!

      Parallel universes.....by design.

      Well, this would explain how he can be so cavalier about Covid.....Im sincerely glad that hydroxy helps people......but so does plasma, antibodies, remdesevir......I just wonder if he’s really taking it......and why he’s so stuck on it?

      I see they cut research on a potential Vaccine just because it came from Bill Gates.....shouldn’t he be taking all possibilities?

      Even life and death is political!

      And yes....I’ve seen the protest signs......”hang Gates and Fauci.” Such civil people.

      I remember when Max Keizer got thrown off American tv for saying “hang the bankers”.....!!
