Trump claims hydroxychloroquine study was an ‘enemy statement’ as he defends his use of unproven COVID-19 drug

Published

Speaking with reporters on Tuesday, President Donald Trump defended his decision to promote the use of the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The president said Monday that he was taking the medication, which he claimed could help people prevent becoming infected with the novel coronavirus.

“The FDA warned that hydroxychloroquine could cause serious side effects. Why do you promote the use of this drug when you’re not a doctor?” a reporter asked him on Tuesday.

“Well, I have worked with doctors. If you look at the one survey, the only bad survey they were giving it to people in bad shape, they were very old, almost dead. It was a Trump enemy statement,” Trump replied.

The president was apparently referring to research that analyzed medical records of 368 male veterans and found no benefit in the treatment of COVID-19.

Trump insisted that many medical workers were in favor of the drug.

“If it was somebody else other than me, people would say, gee, isn’t it smart?” he complained.

"Does Trump have dementia or something?" asked pro-Trump political pundit Mike Cernovitch. "Because sitting on his fat ass right now isn't the right move."

Desperate and ‘out-of-control’ Trump might prompt violent insurrection to stay in office: columnist

Published

on

Writing for the Daily Beast, columnist Michael Tomasky made a strong case that Donald Trump has removed any doubt that he is "morally unfit" to be president and, faced with the possibility he may not be re-elected, could resort to encouraging his followers to take up arms in his defense.

"Naively, I always thought that even Donald Trump would stop short of actually inciting violence. I mean, he’s the president of the United States," Tomasky began before adding, "History means nothing to him, and the future means even less. Presidents—all presidents, even ones I didn’t like—think about the office, the future implications of their actions, the future of our institutions."

Protests around the world: This time it’s different

Published

on

A profound, historical difference separates the protests across America the past six days from past eruptions of anger over police violence against black men and women. It’s a difference that isn’t showing up news reports, televised or print even though it’s quite apparent.

The differences are where these demonstrations are taking place and who is protesting,

In Los Angeles, the demonstrators were not in the poor and historically black neighborhood known as Watts, but in Beverly Hills and the city’s prosperous West Side. Many of those demonstrating were white. In some places a majority were white.
