Ah, there's an angle - greed

[quote]President Donald Trump has a “small financial interest” in the maker of an anti-malarial drug that he has been touting as a “game changer” in treating coronavirus, according to The New York Times. Over the past two weeks, Trump and his Fox News allies have aggressively promoted hydroxychloroquine as a potential cure, despite top infectious-disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci and others urging caution and noting that there was not enough evidence of the drug’s efficacy.

The Times reports the president’s family trusts all have investments in a mutual fund whose largest holding is Sanofi, the manufacturer of Plaquenil, the brand-name version of hydroxychloroquine. Associates of the president, including Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, have also run funds that hold investments in the pharmaceutical firm.

Of course he has a financial interest. Trump does nothing for the common good. He does everything for his own good, and he does it even if it kills people. This is what MAGA really is.
@windinhishair Now he is going to "look into" the firing of Navy Capt. Brett Crozier because before this incident he had a good record of service and he doesn't want to see a persons life damaged because they had a bad day. 🙄

@softspokenman Right.....and his decision will be based on what he hears on Fox News that is indoctrinating his cultists.
@windinhishair Trump's professional "Enablers".

Don't know if this article is true or not.

... but accepting medical advice from a person that runs hotels and golfclubs and the propaganda outlet that vigorously supports him, that sounds like some form of natural selection at work honestly. 😅

It gets even more dramatic if you know that a renowed physician and immunologist working for his own administration goes against it. At it gets even more damning when you know certain people on society needs this drug, but are now looking toward shortages because some random demagogue promotes it as a form of a miracle cure.

@smiler2012 He's a millionaire through inheritance.
"What do you have to lose ? Try it." What does HE have to gain ? "I'm not a doctor but I have common sense." 😳 Maybe he should do brain surgery on himself and remove the giant tumor he calls a brain. 🤕

@SW-User Again, if boorish, juvenile, reckless and unconstitutional behavior is normalized, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
@Graylight agreed is sad ..c'mon November!
@SW-User Re-election by a landslide 😆
