Nets Have a Meltdown After Trump
Says He Takes Hydroxychloroquine

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 5/18/2020 10:46:17 PM

Even though the FDA says the use of Hydroxychloroquine was up to a patient and their doctor, Monday’s evening newscasts saw ABC, CBS, and NBC clutch their pearls after President Trump admitted he’s been taking the anti-Malaria drug for several days to prevent catching coronavirus. Acting as though he was self-medicating and not telling viewers that the drug needed a prescription to obtain it, which meant his doctor approved it, these liberal networks decried the medial precaution. ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News kicked off their newscasts

We need a count of how many people in the world take this on a daily basis in malarial areas. It must be hundred of thousands.

If DJT had power to raise the dead, the press wold blast him for vandalizing the cemetery. If he could somehow walk on water, they'd ding him for harming the environment. Now, he is maximizing his health regimen and they all develop apoplexy.

I so frustrated about the disgusting dishonesty over this drug! I have taken it, and if I could take it for the rest of my life to manage my chronic illness, I would. The research on it is THAT good. I’m not saying it doesn’t have side effects (like all drugs) but it is backed by 70 years of study. The fresh panic over heart concerns is new to the narrative this week too. I guess calling it an “old malaria drug” wasn’t scary enough. Flipping out over a $.39 Plaquenil pill is especially absurd when you consider that the number one selling drug in America is the injected biologic, Humira. Humira is made from Chinese hamster ovaries, costs upwards of $1800 for a single dose, and one of the risks with long term use is developing lymphoma. It’s list of side effects is a mile long but it’s a best seller. Lots of expensive, happy tv ads for it on the major networks too. Weird, huh?

The Democrats and their media allies have been working 24/7 since President Trump was elected trying to get rid of him by any means. Now he is apparently taking a physician prescribed drug and the Democrats and their media allies are worried that Trump might have a heart attack! But what they are really worried about is that the drug might work against the Chinese virus as Trump said he hoped it would.

One of my students said when she was taking the Semester at Sea program, she took Hydroxychloroquine when she and the other students were in countries where malaria was endemic. I suspect that's why President Trump's doctor prescribed it.

Cavuto’s little meltdown was pretty bizarre. He is not a doctor. Who is he to dispense medical advice? There are different medical opinions on the effectiveness of the drug but it is FDA approved and must be prescribed by an actual doctor, not by President Trump. Does Cavuto even realize how condescending and pompous he sounded? He made a fool of himself when the actual doctor he interviewed completely contradicted him. Time for the media to shut up.

We all know that the MSM is not at all concerned about the health of Donald Trump! Based on their reporting, they are not concerned about the health of the general public either. What they are fretting over is the much needed continuation of panic and the lock down until the election in November. They desperately need more deaths, a failing economy and mail in ballots...until November 4th.

The reason every network and every “expert” is having a cow over this is because there’s no money to be made from it. The drug is cheap, well researched, and readily available. They want to wait until a new drug can be patented and sold for huge amounts of money. As always, follow the money. Don’t underestimate Fauci’s hand in this. He’s a fraud.

#6 exactly they know HCQ and Zinc works otherwise they would be celebrating President Trump taking if it was so dangerous! What the corrupt msm was hoping for is President Trump and VP Pence would both get the Wuhan virus incapacitating them and making Speaker Pelosi President. Now that's not going to happen that's the real reason for the meltdown! Further they don't want WTP to have access to HCQ as outpatients because that would bend the hospitalization and mortality rates dramatically downward! How I loathe the corrupt msm!

Cavuto, "condescending and pompous"? Haha. Neil Cavuto, the prideful little prince who wants to condescendingly pontificate to us. Of course, he is above it all but will offer his input for the unwashed masses as he collects his fat salary. I have not watched him in years and have cut way back on any cable news because it is mostly juvenile balderdash, and only has power if we watch it. It's time for all patriots to "cut the cord." Hit them where it hurts. It's time to starve cable news. We need to fight back. And we need a conservative YouTube and Facebook. It must be possible. I know I would support it. Too much talk and not enough action, including Hannity, Limbaugh, Savage, blah, blah, blah. They need to do more than just talk and start putting their money where there mouth is.

The MSM has been promoting the hoax that Hydroxychloroquine is highly dangerous. Yet it has been used for treating other conditions for 40 years with minimum problems. Until Doctors started using it to counter the Coronavirus, the drug was considered to be very safe. I remember when Nutrasweet first came on the market. Suddenly, articles appeared claiming saccharin caused cancer and was dangerous. The "scientific" study supporting this was later to be proved to be "junk" science. Might history be repeating itself?

The media goes into hysterics anytime something disrupts their narrative. Only they have the power to put forth facts, and it’s just their facts. Any dissenting opinions or truths are ridiculed and denied. The media has been working especially hard against truth since 2015. They anticipated that Trump was trouble but now they know he is the existential threat to their new world order and, therefore, must be destroyed. They are so desperate that they have become a laughing stock among anyone who is a mildly reasonable person. We can’t dismiss them because they have singlehandedly stirred up fear to a fevered pitch simply to damage the President and the result has been disastrous. I cannot think of a word vile enough to describe them.

The msm continues to disgust. Like it is their business to know and care about what keeps the President in good health. Sadly, too many sheep are drawn to the msm in order to be informed. The msm is well aware of their dependency on them which explains why and how the msm has developed clever ways to capture the attention of the sheep and regularly pump their heads full of leftist propaganda.

The Marxist media want Orange Man Bad to die. Every. Single. Story. about Orange Man Bad, since he came down the escalator is negative. Not one positive thing has been reported about Orange Man Bad by the Marxists, ever. Not one. It's not 96 percent negative reporting. It is 100 percent negative. Where are all the people dying of heart failure from hydroxy? But Chicom virus patients forced by blue state governors into nursing homes, where the most vulnerable contract the virus and in fact, die, go totally unreported by the Marxists simply because it is not an Orange Man Bad story. IF, there are two brain cells blue state voters can rub together (and boy, it is a YUGE if), then the Marxists will all lose in a landslide this November. That will NOT be a good thing if the Mitch Buuuhhhhh-Buuurrhhhh-Buh-Bipartisan McConnell and Kevin "I'm a Conservative-No Really, I Am" McCarthy wing of the Republicans are congressional leaders in a GOP landslide win. They do nothing but screw up wet dreams.

A close friend's son was so ill with the virus that he had difficulty speaking when he arrived at the hospital in NJ. He demanded the Hydroxychloroquine along with the Zpack. He was home from the hospital in 3 days. The reaction from the nets, including FOX, is disgusting. They want the virus to continue. They do not want a cure or a vaccine. All of this so that President Trump is not re-elected. I have gradually moved away from FOX to the FOX Business channel. Less TDS!

I’m glad to hear this, especially because I find It suspicious that so many around POTUS & VPOTUS are testing positive for the virus. I don’t believe in coincidences. I imagine the President has his suspicions, as well. Chorolquine and Hydrochloriquine are synthetic versions of quinine, which comes from Cinchona Bark. It’s been used for centuries. As a certified herbalist, I make my own tinctures of it, and take it prophylacticly, as does my husband. It’s a very powerful medicine, so a little goes a long way.

The enemedia is not so much afraid that hydroxychloroquine works. They already know it works and many of them are probably taking it on the sly. They are, however, terrified that the majority of citizens of this country will also learn that it works, that there is no need to wait for a vaccine, and demand our freedom back - thus saving the economy and propelling PDJT to re-election.

I feel so happy that my President gave the Enemedia the surprise of their lifetime. I watched it live and could not help standing up and cheering. I think we will look back on this as the moment that Donald Trump was re-elected. HCQ is effective of course, used all over the world. The NIH (Fauci), FDA, and CDC failed, just as the WHO did. Someone had to restore order in town. By not allowing outpatient use of HCQ+Azt+Zn the NIH, CDC, FDA, AMA, and many Democrat governors are probably responsible for thousands of American deaths. President Trump cut the Gordian knot of the Medical Mafia. I hope Neil Cavuto loses his job after his preposterous reaction to the life-saving trolling by President Donald Trump the Great.

Without question the hysterical and amplified resistance to usage of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19 is absolutely political in its motivation for all the reasons posters on this thread have expressed. If the mainstream media “wizards of smart” are so smart, let them explain why the medical community is justified in using hydroxychloroquine for treating rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, some lupus symptoms, and other types of autoimmune conditions, and it has worked so well. Yet again, displaying their “herd mentality,” the mainstream media are sensationalizing the possible heart problems that may be occur from usage of hydroxychloroquine; the reality is, it is only one among several other possible side-effects. Literature accompanying pharmacy filled prescriptions list the medication’s possible side-effects not only for the safety of the patient, but as a measure of legal cover for the pharmaceutical manufacturer.

I think what really has caused the outrage is that Trump let the cat out of the bag by saying that many doctors and medical workers are taking it. Truth is, all the people with pull have it and Remdesivir in their medicine cabinets now. People should start chats with their doctors by asking them if they take Hydroxychloridine. Same with politicians and network anchors being interviewed.
