On Tuesday, at a virtual town hall on food security, former Vice President Joe Biden took on President Donald Trump's continued promotion of hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus treatment — and laid into him for taking it as a prophylactic with no scientific evidence.

"Come on, man! What is he doing?" said Biden. "What in God's name is he doing?"

He blasted the decision as "absolutely irresponsible" — and compared it to Trump's recent suggestion that doctors look into injecting household cleaners into people.
