As Twitchy reported over the weekend, the narrative in the media and among Democrats seemed to be that President Trump was endangering the public by talking up hydroxychloroquine as a possible treatment for those who’ve contracted COVID-19, with Obama bro Jon Favreau even suggesting you’d have nothing to lose by trying it — except maybe your life.
It’s gotten to the point where a senior adviser to the Biden campaign tweeted that she was going to make a referral to The Hague for crimes against humanity for Trump promoting a drug that hadn’t been tested.
As Twitchy has also pointed out, Gov. Andrew Cuomo can say pretty much the exact same thing as Trump and be praised for it to the point where Democrats are hoping Joe Biden drops out and Cuomo steps in to take the nomination. But will Cuomo also be referred to The Hauge for prosecution for promoting hydroxychloroquine as a possible treatment for the coronavirus?

Looking forward to the media going absolutely bonkers over this study-free promotion of hydroxychloroquine https://t.co/lo5Y2Ni943

God damnit what IS with these people not wanting this drug to work. Shameful that the media has potentially scared people into refusing a medication that could save them. All to dunk on Trump.

So many studies have indicated that Hydroxychloroquine can be effective:
– Chinese Study
– French Studies (x2)
Also, in a poll of 6000 US doctors, the #1 treatment for #COVID19 was hydroxychloroquine.

Actually, doctors from 30 countries were polled, not just the United States.
translation: it should not have worked because Trump said it might but it does. Mind boggling! See liberal heads explode with hiss sound

Thousands of successes now drug of choice throughout Europe and by all US big cities. Why are Dems and media rabid in their opposition and continued denial its seems by total success to be the game changer and maybe the game winner?

All I know is if I’m so sick or someone I love is so sick that nothing is working I should have the opportunity to take a drug that will work or could work. And not have to wait until it’s too late for it to possibly work. It’s not Cuomo’s call on what I want to do with my life.

Wait I thought we had to impeach trump for saying this ?

Sen. Chuck Schumer seems to be working on it.
@MattieVan Is this still getting people killed or only when trump mentions drugs?
It’s a strange argument that any time a politician mentions that a certain drug could/has worked, he’s responsible for people drinking fish tank cleaner.
— William Orr (@williamorr2110) April 6, 2020
Clearly he wants people to die by taking fish tank cleaner. Otherwise why would he say such a thing? He’s not a doctor!

How dare Gov. Cuomo practice medicine. /s

I can't wait for this to end and the lawsuits to begin.
The msm and a few Democratic governors are going to have to explain to families of the deceased why "Trump bad" was enough of a reason for their loved ones to be denied a chance at life saving measures.
— ComboBreaker (@ComboBreaker12) April 6, 2020
The liberals are willing to completely deny any evidence, anecdotally or otherwise, because to acknowledge there’s even a glimmer of hope would mean to acknowledge that Trump might not have been “lying” as they claim.
They can’t do that for you & your loved ones. Remember that.

Sorry to inform my fellow Dems. It works.

Why do all the people freaking out about Trump’s optimism about hydroxychloroquine yawn when someone like Cuomo suggests giving it a try?
