President Donald Trump announced Monday that he's been taking hydroxychloroquine recreationally for weeks. It's something doctors have urged people not to take without being on a heart monitor so they could watch in case the person's heart rate became irregular.

It was an admission that prompted many to break into hysterics with questions and comments about Trump's casual drug use amid a pandemic.

When he advocated for hydroxychloroquine, the country quickly saw a run on the drug where one couple took an aquarium cleaner because it had a toxic version of hydroxychloroquine in the substance. The husband died and his wife warned people not to listen to anything Trump says.
