President Trump has a "hunch" that a malaria drug is the answer to covid-19.

Should an unqualified person be allowed to give medical advice?
Isn't that dangerous?

President Trump has some "associates" with a vested financial interest in said drug! 🤷‍♀️
SHOCK HORROR 😱
Harriet03 · 41-45, F
@vorian You maybe! 🤷‍♀️
vorian · 46-50, M
@Harriet03 haha..😂
Harriet03 · 41-45, F
@vorian Stay safe, ignore Trump ✌

Potentially very dangerous to people with underlying heart conditions- it could also adversely affect the supply to those with a condition like Lupus where it’s use has been proven to work.
@PainfulTruth 👍️

@PainfulTruth There are not millions of doses available, and it's not because of New York's governor, he's not the one that brought this up, it's because Trump has his supporters thinking it's a cure all. People that have been taking it for a long time, can't get it now, thanks to Trump. He should keep his flappy mouth shut, he's not a doctor.

@PainfulTruth If there are millions of doses available why then is Trump putting pressure on India to supply more of the drug - that would indicate its supply in the US is dwindling.

Is conversational mention of a hunch the same thing as giving medical advice?

I don't think so.

@Budwick Lol, I'm so glad you are not a safety-officer in a compagny. And if you are... quit now Budwick 😂

@Budwick



"Si" means "Yes" ... in case you need a translation 😂
MasterLee · 51-55, M
He gets his advice from experts. You should stop bashing.
vorian · 46-50, M
@MasterLee clueless about what?
JeanAnna · F
@MasterLee The medical experts are warning against this drug until it has been tested thoroughly.
smiler2012 · 56-60, M
@vorian well first off the should not be bringing hope to people in this fight against corona without actual fact rater than false speculation but with this guy his brain and mouth certainly are not working in harmony
JeanAnna · F
No. Trump is giving false hope to people. That drug has not been tested and it has dangerous side effects. Trump should stop this crap and let the medical people speak about this drug.
MarkPaul · 26-30, M
Well, he thinks he knows something because his uncle worked at MIT. But, except in his fantasyland, he should not be allowed to give medical advice. He needs to be stopped.
ThePerfectUsername · 70-79, M
This wouldn't be the same malaria drug he and his family are financially invested in my any chance?
vorian · 46-50, M
@ThePerfectUsername who'd have thought it eh?
JeanAnna · F
@ThePerfectUsername That's food for thought. He sure is pushing a drug that hasn't been tested for this particular disease. And it can kill if not used correctly.
Let's just ignore all the people the drug has already helped.
Some of you are so incredibly stupid and consumed by TDS it's amazing.
@PSuss1[quote]The number of people hospitalized across the United States as a result of the novel coronavirus illness (COVID-19) is reportedly only a fraction of what some health experts projected a few days ago.

On Monday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters that in his state alone, the epicenter of the viral outbreak in the United States, new coronavirus hospitalizations dropped by about 75 percent, from 1,427 four days ago to 358 on Sunday.

Highlighting the drop in new hospitalizations in NY, the state hardest hit (131,239 cases; 4,758 deaths as of Monday) by the coronavirus, Alex Berenson, former New York Times reporter who has been following the U.S. outbreak closely, observed on Twitter on Monday: “It’s over, guys. It’s already over.”

@AlexBerenson
It's over, guys. It's already over. Longer thread coming. https://twitter.com/bespokeinvest/status/1247194815160291328 …[/quote]
@PSuss1 refute it with facts instead of an emotional outburst like you libtards always do.
PSuss1 · 51-55, M
@PainfulTruth the BS I was referring to was:

"The only people calling for extended trials are those who are afraid it will be effective and blunt their attempts to damage Trump. Those insane people who are hoping for mass casualties and the destruction of the economy in order to get rid of Trump."

Do you genuinely believe that?

Feel free to provide your sources.

He's going to get you all killed my god....🤦‍♀️
Darci · 31-35
@PainfulTruth Wow..how empathic.
@vorian guess how much we don't care what you think.
@Darci your opinions are meaningless.
The bottom line is libtards don't want there to be an effective treatment because massive deaths will damage Trump.
Liberalism IS truly a mental disorder.
And you are all a bunch of sick fucks.
@PainfulTruth Truer words were never yet spoken.👍️
As far as I am concerned the Libertards cand all move to China and live with the rest of sick fucks.
Is he prescribing the drug - and just like on this site - what bird brain would listen to someone who is NOT YOUR doctor ?
JeanAnna · F
@MarmeeMarch The boobs that are listening to Trump are his supporters.
@JeanAnna If prescribed by a doctor and using evidence based medicine with regards to patient care - then that is a risk - as with any prescribed medication. Who listens to politicians dispensing medical information ? - Dumbbells do that's who.... And if they are Trump supporters then - Oh well , not my problem if they are too stupid to know the difference between a politician and a doctor.
@JeanAnna I dont - and I support him 100% -

Most President's surround themselves with experts who advise the Pres.
One person cannot know everything. Yes, this med has been utilized in France and NYC
with great success.
@PSuss1 politely handed to you on a gold platter ?
PSuss1 · 51-55, M
@softspokenman I'd take it scribbled on a toilet roll
@PSuss1 Scribbled with a sharpie ☺️

Not if you believe it's a hoax anyway. Hoax cure for a hoax condition.
Harriet03 · 41-45, F
Trump, Pence Krushner etc what could possibly go wrong?! 😱
Peppa · 31-35, F
He's an ass just like the people diagnosing mental health of others. I'm guilty of calling a person a narcissist, but that's mostly been indirectly backed by my therapist who's advice is to set boundaries, if that's not a warning I don't know what is! (the fact I need a therapist to deal with issues caused by said person is enough to indicate something being wrong!)
Playing politics with people's lives.

He is really good with stuff
Muldoon · 56-60, M
Personal experience of voting in 12 Presidential elections.
How many elections have you voted in?
Muldoon · 56-60, M
@PSuss1 here's my source for France results: A new study whose results were published in the International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents has found early evidence that the combination of hydroxychloroquine, a popular anti-malaria drug known under the trade name Plaqenuil, and antibiotic azithromycin (aka Zithromax or Azithrocin) could be especially effective in treating the COVID-19 coronavirus and reducing the duration of the virus in patients.
PSuss1 · 51-55, M
@Muldoon I can't find the study, can you post a link please (I am genuinely interested, not looking for a fight about Trump!)?
Muldoon · 56-60, M
@PSuss1 I googled the question and that was what returned.
nowic2 · 56-60, M
Being objective; you can't call a hunch medical advice. Anyone that took the drug based on a hunch would have to be pretty dumb.
SW-User
The stupidest thing is that they never made medicines for corona virus which struck in 2002. 🙄
He's got some financial interest in the drug.. Obviously
