Imagine hating Trump SO MUCH you root for the virus.

From Newsweek:

Michigan Democratic State Representative Karen Whitsett told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Monday that the controversial drug hydroxychloroquine stopped her coronavirus symptoms “within a couple hours.”

Whitsett represents parts of Detroit, a city that has been labeled a coronavirus “hot spot.” Recent data indicated 5,032 positive cases in Detroit with 196 deaths attributable to the virus reported in the city.

Used primarily to treat malaria, hydroxychloroquine has been praised by President Donald Trump as a potential therapeutic for the virus. Sunday, Trump suggested taking the drug to prevent contracting the virus.

“I’m not looking at it one way or the other,” Trump said, “but we want to get out of this. If it does work, it would be a shame if we didn’t do it early. But we have some very good signs.”

While the FDA has not yet approved hydroxychloroquine for treatment of the coronavirus, Whitsett claims it worked for her.

“I really want to say that you have to give this an opportunity,” Whitsett said Monday. “For me, it saved my life.”

Who knew? Oh, Trump sorta did.

But you know, since she dared speak with Laura Ingraham about it that totally discredits her and stuff.

God forbid we give people any hope whatsoever if that means Trump doesn’t fail.

They’re ridiculous. Seriously.

These same people would be swallowing the pill by the dozen if their Messiah Obama had said the same.

But you know, ORANGE MAN BAD.

FFS.
