From the very start of President Trump’s time in Washington DC, the liberal media has been out to get him….whatever that means, and via whatever it takes.
This isn’t all that surprising, really, seeing as Trump strode into office under the banner of draining the swamp, which is an ethos that immediately put him at odds with much of Washington DC and their surrogates in the infotainment industry.
Now, just a day after President Trump admitted to the world that he was taking anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against COVID-19, one of the mainstream most malicious anti-Trump orators is calling shenanigans.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough speculated that President Trump is lying about taking hydroxychloroquine to help prevent contracting the coronavirus.
“But when the president of the United States actually says he’s doing something which, let me assure you, he is not doing — let me assure you, the president of the United States is not taking hydroxychloroquine,” he began.
Scarborough also said that during the only time they ate a meal together, the president appeared to be fixated on “compulsively” cleaning his hands.
“In all the time that I knew him, I only sat for one meal with him,” he explained. “Before that meal, he had wipes like this high and would go through the wipes, compulsively, and wipe his hands, sanitize his hands before eating anything.”
Apparently the President’s hygiene was what prompted Scarborough’s strange speculation.
“So he is not taking something that his own administration has said will kill you,” he continued. “That his own FDA said will kill you. That the [Department of Veterans Affairs] said will kill you. … That’s what doctors will say, too. The FDA said, take it if you’re in the hospital or take it if you’re in a closely watched clinical trial. But, don’t take it unless you’re under those two circumstances. So the president is not taking it, and yet, and yet, he’s telling Americans that they should take it.”
This unrepentant speculation is apparently what passes for “news” over at MSNBC these days.
