The latest attempt by some in the media to scare the public and baselessly attack President Trump reached a new low last week, but thankfully for a world gripped by Coronavirus, they failed.
Last week, an Arizona man died after drinking aquarium cleaner that he believed would combat the Coronavirus. The man’s rationale was that the primary ingredient in the aquarium cleaner was something called “chloroquine phosphate” that bares a striking resonance to the promising coronavirus drugs: chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine.
What followed was a torrent of disgraceful headlines that tried in vane to create some nexus between the President informing the public about a potential Coronavirus cure and the Arizona man that chose to drink aquarium cleaner because the names were similar.
CNN and others joined in on spreading the flimsy rationale that the President’s touting of a potential Coronavirus cure made him ultimately responsible for the man’s death.
Indirectly accusing the president of the United States of being responsible for this man’s death is journalistic malpractice on so many levels. Their actions undermine the now unanimous scientific consensus that chloroquin and hydroxychloroquin can successfully treat the virus; and they prioritize their own petty politics ahead of honestly informing the public.
All blaming the President for an Arizona man drinking aquarium cleaner aside, the war against hope continued with more frail attempts to undermine the President at the expense of the public’s health.
The next false narrative?
“The FDA on Sunday issued an emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, decades-old malaria drugs championed by President Donald Trump for coronavirus treatment despite scant evidence.”
It would appear that they just cannot help themselves.
Fast forward a week to present day and, despite the best efforts by a grotesquely partisan media, chloroquin and hydroxychloroquin have emerged as our best weapons to combat the disease.
This breakthrough is thanks to efforts by the French government who tasked world renowned Professor Didier Raoult, an infectious disease specialist and the head of the infection hospital IHU in Marseille, to research COVID-19 treatments. Raoult’s research confirmed that, “In 80 in-patients receiving a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin we noted a clinical improvement in all but one 86 year-old patient who died, and one 74 year- old patient still in intensive care unit. […]Virus cultures from patient respiratory samples were negative in 97.5% patients at Day5. This allowed patients to rapidly discharge from highly contagious wards with a mean length of stay of five days.” [Full Study HERE]
The Department of Health and Human Services also released a statement on Sunday noting, “the President’s bold leadership and the hard work of FDA and HHS’s Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response have succeeded in securing this large donation of [hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine from Sandoz and Bayer].”
The truly terrifying notion when a media outlet chooses to sink this low isn’t just about harming President Trump, it’s exposing the small amount of dignity left in respect for human life and for the office of the President. If your priority is to continually drive a wedge between the elected President of the United States and the citizens who put him there, how are you not the enemy of the people? The people who chose their president, who need their president, who are relying on his leadership and all the experts in the task force he has recruited during this global crisis- and your main objective is to destroy the established trust he has with the American people? It’s not just wrong, it’s treasonous. Where does the mainstream media’s allegiance lie if it’s not to the American people?
