Trump adviser cornered by CNN’s Bash over the president pushing hydroxychloroquine despite risk of death

Published

CNN’s Dana Bash put one of Donald Trump’s economic advisers on the spot on Sunday morning, questioning him over the safety of the president taking hydroxychloroquine to ward off the COVID-19 virus despite extreme health risks.

Speaking with senior adviser Kevin Hassett, Bash stated, “I want to ask about hydroxychloroquine. The new study this week says that the drug was associated with an increased risk of in-hospital death. President Trump, as you know, has been publicly touting the drug and says he’s been taking to it.”

She then showed a clip of the president proclaiming, “It’s not going to kill anybody.”

“It’s not going to kill anybody,” the CNN host repeated. “Well, we now know according to a major study, that is not true. The president has been giving medical advice on hydroxychloroquine. Do you think that that is putting American lives at risk?”

“The problem right now is that we’re going up against this enemy, the virus, that we don’t know how to treat yet and we’re watching treatments go through the pipeline at hospitals all around the world and aggregating data to try to learn about it,” Hassett attempted. “As Dr. [Anthony] Fauci said at press conferences, what we really need is a controlled randomized trial so we can figure this out. I think until we see a large-scale controlled randomized trial, there will be questions.”

“So, unfortunately, we’re in a world where doctors all around the world are anecdotally trying things and watching to see what works and doesn’t work and they’re treating their patients accordingly,” he continued. “I wish we were in a better world where we had all these treatments that have had the gold standard trials and everybody.”

“Have you taken it?” Bash pressed. “You’re in the White House, would you take it or are you?”

“We’re really not supposed to talk about our personal health here,” he demurred. “The only reason I talk about my health in this case is I talked about it with my doctor because I think there is a lot of evidence in the lab that it could help.”

Published

on

It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.

Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.

Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

Published

President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
