MSNBC host Rachel Maddow has demanded that networks stop airing White House updates about the coronavirus pandemic, excoriating President Donald Trump for making optimistic promises about an unproven drug to treat the infection. 'I know we ought to be getting used to this kind of thing by now, but I'm not,' Maddow said on her show Friday night. 'President Trump today, again, just flat-out wrong in public about this malaria drug that has gotten stuck in his mind, quite some distance from the facts.' Maddow was referring to Trump's sweeping claims about a malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine, which is being investigated as a potential treatment

I bet the people who have been cured by this drug would agree with the President.

Just remember her defense in court, You cannot take anything I say on air as truth. Or something to that effect. It's Rachel Maddow. Take her words for what they are worth. Geez, even she doesn't stand behind them.

They simply cannot have any sort of optimism in the country. They have got to keep the gloom and doom going until the election. With a cadaver as their nominee, it's the only hope they have. Be miserable, America!

I'm guessing Trump knows a lot more about the prospects of this drug than Rachel Maddow, and Dr Fauci is not saying it's not looking promising, he's just very cautious about getting too far ahead of the situation. Of course, switch the president, and say it's Obama being positive, the MSM would be fawning over how he's trying to calm and comfort the world, blah, blah.... Today's press is not playing devils advocate, or asking questions, they are being critical and accusatory. Likely most of them have planned questions, and not sure why they get to use their phone which likely has prompted information to help direct them on what to ask next.

If only we had the benefit of her wisdom when FDR was trying to rally the country during the Great Depression. "'The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.' Really? That's just a flat out lie. Every one of those Fireside Chats is full of such lies. We have plenty to be scared to death about, and I'll list them for you. You're welcome. "And we should stop broadcasting those Fireside Chats!

You can see the results yourself here: Just scroll to the very end, page 24, to see the outcome in chart form. Granted the sample size was small. But I have read no shortage of studies with similar sample sizes--and at times, even smaller. I respect Dr. Fauci but believe he is underplaying the significance of the results. Pardon the expression, but I don't see anything to sneeze at here. This is may be a preliminary piece of work, but nonetheless well worth taking seriously.

The radical Democrats, and especially Maddow, are going to look very foolish if it turns out that the drug in question works against the Chinese corona virus and saves a lot of lives. No big deal for Maddow as she has been playing the part of a clown since she appeared on TV.

Ridiculousness from this horse's patootie once again! Article refers to "sweeping claims" made by POTUS. He did not make sweeping claims, he said repeated words to the effect there were promising signs, some hope, more testing, but some evidence that this drug combo might work... more testing to be done. In a crisis, the absence of hope leads to resignation which leads to despair and death. Then there's Fauci. He makes confusing and sometimes self-contradictory statements I don't know why he would make a point of undermining POTUS. If he thinks we all need to temper our eagerness to believe that there's a cure or ameliorative, then he should make it clear to President Trump. I have seen Dr. Oz on Fox also speak positively about chloroquine + azithromycin. Let's hope and above all, pray; and pray for the healthcare workers and researchers, struggling families, our Leadership and Prez Trump, VP Pence. Pray truth prevails, that evildoers are exposed.

First they complained he wasn't out there enough. Then they complained that he was talking too much. Now they don't want to see him at all. They thought if they got their wish for a recession and some terrible disease to strike us that somehow it would make the President look bad, but once again he has beaten them and he appears everyday looking Presidential and giving us an upbeat message which is his job. He doesn't have a fireside to chat in front of but he talks to us all with his gang of the best Drs in the world to back him up, And so once again they lose, the country and the President wins. Rachael just STFU and crawl back under your rock. And when this disease is defeated don't bother to come back.

Maddow is an intelligent young whatever, but she is being dishonest on this issue. When the President talked about the drug, he gave his gut feeling that it may be effective against Kung Flu. There is some limited evidence from Korea that it is effective. Dr. Fauci, a research lab rat, if you will, offered the caution necessary in testing the drug. Fauci said almost exactly what Dr. Birx said, the day before. Research protocols had to be established to measure the effectiveness of the drug. DJT said the medication is safe - that is correct, since it has been in use since 1942, for malaria, and then 'off label' for rheumatoid arthritis. But as my youngest son, a Chemistry-pre med major, pointed out to me yesterday, the effectiveness of hydroxochloraquine is counter intuitive, using it on rheumatoid arthritis- slowing down the patient's immune system, but building it up to deal with the Kung Flu virus. so when Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx talk about protocol for the medication, they are talking about a double blind study, where one group of patients receive the medication, and a control group of patients receive a placebo. The patients in both groups do not know what they are receiving, nor do their physicians.DJT, understanding that need, also is suggesting that the medication be given on a compassionate basis, to others, outside the protocol groups. And since the medication is safe as currently used for malaria and rheumatoid arthritis, it is probably safe for Kung Flu. finally, are protocols ever disrupted and abandoned? Yes. In the massive study of the use of aspirin as a defense against heart attacks, the researchers studied physicians as subjects, and midway through the study, found such a valuable effect of aspirin, they notified all participants to begin taking aspirin. One more thing - there is a ready made subject for medical researchers on hydroxochloraquine. Since large numbers of rheumatoid arthritis patients are currently taking the medication, examine the Kung Flu infection rates of those patients. If the medication has a prrophylactic benefit, it will be determined quickly.

He did. Now they want him to stop all press conferences. stopping the rally's didnt seem to work. But I just bet they would not stop that sorry excuse for a candidate Biden, to stand behind a podium with the "President want ta be" seal attached to the front of it, stopped from talking.

So once more, the first victim is the truth. Here are the facts. A small double blind study done by French researchers on 22 people with COVID-19 using hydroxychloroquine in conjunction with the antibiotic azithromycin showed that 100 percent of the people treated were free of the virus in just six days and that the treatment was statistically significant vs a placebo. That is conclusive that it works in humans (not just test tubes as the article misstates) but the small sample size is not acceptable to the FDA who must verify that the results can be repeated with large populations. The President is correct that it eliminated the virus and could be a cure but Fauci is right that it is premature to declare that it is safe and effective for the masses. Rachel Maddow is not interested in the truth but in hurting the only President we have at this time to get us through the crisis. Hatred is not helpful.

People like Maddow in the media are furious that Trump has a nightly platform to act presidential and set the narrative. Plus, the nation is listening. They want to know what he and the experts are saying. The media has completely lost control of this story and people with TDS, like Maddow, are going insane. That is what could be called a fortuitous side effect of the virus to which the media are exceptionally susceptible. The symptoms are acting like complete idiots on TV. As to this specific drug, it has had a promising test. Within a couple weeks, it will be clear whether it really is effective. A great attraction to it is that has been around since 1934 and is well known. It could be put into use with reasonable confidence of safety for people already confirmed infected. Start with symptomatic patients and then offer it as an option for asymptomatic patients who have tested positive. If it works to clear up symptoms and prevent tested patients from developing symptoms, that would be a pretty good outcome. Even if it was only 50% effective, that could be a major impact on the spread and death rate. In addition, the treatment probably would not require that much medication and companies have offered to DONATE a lot of medication for Chinese virus treatment.

Donald Trump has shown outstanding leadership and is a source of hope for beating this crisis and guiding the country to recovery. The people who have made complete jackasses of themselves are state governors, all democrats, Northam, Wolf, Newsom and Cuomo of Virginia, Pennsylvania, California and New York respectively. Their handling of this event is just an extension of their typical past performances. Have you ever heard a liberal criticize one of their own, outside of a campaign season?

Madcow has the worst sense of timing in the media of any of them ever. Every time she blows her cookies, somebody releases information that blows her crazy right out of the water. Today it is France, announcing that a combo of two malaria drugs seems to show great promise in their testing on human patients. So Madcow want to explain why her leftist agenda of TDS is more important than people knowing that there is a possible cure treatment out there? Let people get back to work and stop with the fear mongering.

It all comes down to that particular drug being used on seriously ill patients who may die and voluntarily give their consent to use the drug on them hoping that it will keep them from dying. As President Trump has said when that is done it is possible that the drug will work and save the parent’s life, or maybe the drug will not work, but in any case by taking the drug the patient in that situation has nothing to loose.

The cities, counties, states and federal governments are calling for non-essential businesses to close down due to the Chinese Corona Virus. I believe, the liberal/progressive main stream media is non-essential because for the past 3 ½ years they have promoted 93% negative news on the Trump Administration and conservatives. They have not reported facts, only “news” and lies to move their agenda forward, which is to get rid of Trump and destroy the lives of half of Americans (the other half will get caught in their scheme to destroy America). So, therefore, I believe that makes them non-essential in reporting the real factual news. They all need to lose their jobs and positions, close down the media outlets, print and TV/Cable. These outlets are making themselves irrelevant to all Americans. Ms. Maddow, read this......

The media are piling on President Trump for not instilling confidence during the COVID-19 crisis: "There is no new Trump." "Don't be fooled." "The new Trump is the same as the old Trump." "He's incapable of leading us out of it." "Trump shrugs off responsibility." "He's putting the blame on the Chinese."

Joe Biden reached a new and heady milestone when he shellacked Bernie Sanders in Florida, Illinois and Arizona to become the de facto Democratic nominee for president. But there was no soaring speech to acknowledge the moment. He never took the stage amid a sea of Biden signs or before an adoring crowd on national television. Biden was instead stuck in a makeshift studio in his Delaware home, webcasting his remarks with a low-quality personal computer camera against a straight-out-of-YouTube black backdrop and two American flags. He warned about the coronavirus contagion. He offered an olive branch to Bernie Sanders. Then, despite two consecutive weeks of smashing victories,
