TRUMP: Our medicine of choice

| May 24, 2020 1:00 AM

The president of the United States is taking hydroxychloroquine as a possible preventive for COVID-19. It is his personal choice and it is safe to say that he has access to the best medical minds in this nation and around the world.

It is his personal decision and it is not subject to my opinion, your opinion and the opinion of the “press that has a goal to cripple or destroy the President’s ability to lead this nation.”

Let me say this to ABC, CBS, PBS, CNN, MSNBC and all the other slimy creatures, still covered in swamp water and muck, as they go about their evil business: just shut the hell up!

There are numerous credible reports from around the world that there are benefits to hydroxychloroquine early on and while it may not be a guaranteed answer, what does one have to lose? The downsides of this decades-old drug generally take a year or more to manifest themselves.

Let each individual make their own decisions in cooperation with their doctors. The holder of my durable medical power of attorney has clear instructions to press for the use of hydroxychloroquine if I am unable to do so. The rest of you mind your own damn business as to what the president and I decide to do with our personal medical care.

We live in a time of two types of ignorant people. We have those who spout idiocy and those who drink it up.
