I am not one for prettying up something that ain’t that pretty, so when I say this is “epic” you better believe it’s dang epic. CNN “anchor” Brianna Keilar, who is basically an opinion host, absolutely LOST IT on Tuesday night talking with Trump 2020 Comms Director Tim Murtaugh.
She tried to dress up her complete meltdown on Twitter after the fact. Y’all may not know this but CNN’s Brianna Keilar, who is basically an opinion host, not only plays anchor on TV but also plays Doctor on Twitter.
Anyhow, the real tale is in the tape and, well, like I said, it’s epic.
She doesn’t realize it, and her pathetic Twitter thread doesn’t realize it, and the collective mass of Trump deranged media don’t realize it, but everything he said was irrefutable. He simply said facts. He didn’t say “go take hydroxychloroquine all by your lonesome without a doctor or diagnosis” or any of that mess that Keilar, in her dramatic hysteria, wants you to THINK he did as she intoned so gravely about doing a “disservice to the health of Americans” or whatever other speech she borrowed from America’s greatest monster Aaron Sorkin.
He said about this drug, like responsible people say about various drugs all the time, that it some doctors prescribe it and some doctors and studies say it helps, and that taking it won’t instantly kill you or melt you like the Wicked Witch caught in a cloudburst.
The media knows that drugs are evaluated all the time, and that drugs that are proven to be, in general, safe for human consumption, can sometimes be used to treat a thing they weren’t originally thought to be the treatment for. And the press further knows that people talk about those things on air without worrying people might just go take it on their own wherever they can find it, or find something that sort of rhymes with it, and even more they know that when this has happened the other five million times, including when people talk about drugs RIGHT NOW TO THIS DAY that may be used as a vaccine or toward a vaccine, no one in the press goes on Twitter to preach about endangering human life because they talked aloud about a drug that is available only be prescription.
That’s because it is totally stupid to think or act that way. But that’s how they do about hydroxychlorquine, and the ONLY reason that’s so, the ONLY reason – is that Trump said he thought it was promising. That’s IT.
Doing a disservice? Brianna Keilar, you are doing the disservice to Americans. You are participating in a sham, a fraud, a fake new type of controversy that never existed and that makes no sense to exist. And you really seem to have convinced yourself you’re some kind of hero for that.
CNN Communists News Network
Tim Murtaught is full of it. There’s still no credible evidence demonstrating hydroxychloroquine is useful in preventing or treating COVID-19 infection, and it is well established that it can have sometimes produce serious side effects, including dangerous heart arrythmias. Trump’s repeated promotion of the drug resulted in widespread use and shortages for those using it for conditions where it has been proven effective.
Defending the use of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 has been made into a political cause, just as attacking the usefulness of masks has been made into a political cause. Politics should have nothing whatsoever to do with either, though it’s the pigheaded resistance to masks that’s far more likely to a lot of seriously negative consequences.
@Greg: Please show where there were severe long term shortages show your work liar wheres the documentation or a news story that has proof.
There must have been many doctors that were prescribing the med seeing results to cause any shortages.
Dr Fauchi killed all his trials for fear we wouldnt need his franken drug 1000 bucks a treatment vs 10 buck treatment.
A letter sent earlier this year to doctors by the American College of Rheumatology regarding hydrochloroquine shortages.
Shortage of hydroxychloroquine hits mothers with lupus
PBMs and the Run on Hydroxychloroquine
FDA Recognizes Hydroxychloroquine and Chloroquine Shortages
COVID-19: SLE patients, physicians report problems with hydroxychloroquine access
The shortages probably seemed serious and long-term to those who depend on hydroxychloroquine to deal with the medical problems for which it’s proven to be effective.
@Greg: About 2 months ago next door neighbor got covid 19 and had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital. They gave him hydroxychloroquine, Z- pak and zinc. He said within 48 hours it was like someone threw a switch. It worked for him amazing well As a side note his wife has Lupus, guess what she take regularly for it? You get one guess.
Also hydroxychloroquine is sold over the counter in some foreign countries just like tylenol.
So how’d that Mueller thing work out for you?
Similar results have been reported by users of Peter Popoff’s Miracle Spring Water.
Hydroxychloroquine is actually effective in treating symptoms of lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. It’s FDA approved for those conditions because studies have demonstrated its effectiveness.
So tell us, oh wise one, how do those lupus/arthritis patients avoid all those horrible side effects you claim occur when given to Kung Flu patients?
CNN is an utter disgrace. They are nothing but the propaganda arm of the DNC and, like the Democrats, don’t care if people die because they are denied a cheap and readily available drug that will help them.
There are numerous studies showing the benefits of HCQ as well as documented practical evidence. The “study” showing it doesn’t work has been proven a fraud. It is pretty despicable how the left is willing to put lives at risk simply because Trump correctly promoted the benefits of this drug.
Wouldn’t a shortage be doing society a service, since it is a dangerous drug that only kills?
Professional and personal integrity, Trumped by political expediency…
July 28, 3030 – Dark money and PAC’s coordinated ‘reopen’ push are behind doctors’ viral hydroxychloroquine video
So much for their Hippocratic Oath. But if they were going to publicly break their oaths and betray the public, perhaps a place near the Capitol was the place to do it. Senate Republicans had already publicly set a precedent for oath-breaking in connection with the Senate impeachment trial.
They don’t, necessarily. As with any medication, if potentially dangerous side effects occur, the patient’s doctors will adjust the dosages or discontinue the medication in favor of some alternative.
The difference here is that hydroxychloroquine has actually been demonstrated to be useful against lupus and certain types of arthritis. Consequently there’s justification for trying it as treatment for those conditions, since the observed benefits can outweigh the potential risks. No benefits have been observed when it’s used as a COVID-19 disease preventative or treatment, yet all the established risks remain.
Worse still, false claims that it is effective have been used to promote accelerated reopening of schools and businesses, even when it’s clear that a dangerous resurgence of COVID-19 infection is resulting.
@Greg: Covid 19 like the common cold is now part of life, its many mutations cannot be vaxxed for. Fauchis own study of hydrox have shown effective positive results against Sars another covid disease in 2005.
My body my choice seems to fly out the window when it comes to this only by prescription drug. Why did he pull the plug on the new clinical study when no danger was found for the test patients?
No one trusts him anymore.
No one trusts the CDC data anymore.
No one trusts Twitters banning all information about any possible alternatives to franken vaxx or unproven franken treatments 1000 buck a pop.
All of Fauchis emails between himself and drug makers should be subpoenaed.
Maybe we can arrange an exchange of Dr. Fauchi’s e-mails for Donald’s tax returns.
April 2, 2020 – Nation’s top coronavirus expert Dr. Anthony Fauci forced to beef up security as death threats increase
@Greg: More unnamed sources of CNN, no one trusts them . Pathetic.
No swap Fauchi is a government employee FOIA should cover it.
Who do you imagine Donald Trump is working for?
Did you know that Dr. Stella Immanuel, one of the doctors who proclaimed hydroxychloroquine to be a cure for COVID-19 illness and that masks are useless outside of the U.S. Supreme Court yesterday, has also asserted that alien DNA is being used in medical experiments, that a vaccine is being secretly developed to suppress religious belief, and that that gynecological problems are sometimes caused by having sex with demons and witches in one’s dreams? She’s got a YouTube video on the latter topic. And a lot more besides, if you clink on her name there. Trump retweeted her COVID-19 comments.
I suggest people listen closely to Dr. Fauchi. We may hit 150,000 U.S. COVID-19 deaths before we hit the end of the current week.
Herman Cain is still hospitalized and on supplemental oxygen a month after being diagnosed with COVID-19 illness. He attended Trump’s Tulsa rally mask-free in June.
@Greg: Did you know that not only have numerous doctors and studies have shown HCQ to be effective, but many lives have been saved when it is used and lost when it is prohibited?
Far more infections have been caused by your pointless, warrantless, left wing political terrorism than Trump’s rally.
Comrade Greggie said:
Ding, Ding, Ding!!! Comrade Greggie rings the bell. Give him a cookie. But I guess our American physicians are just too damn stupid to apply that same treatment process to Kung Flu patients, or so Comrade Greggie seems to think.
Comrade Greggie continues:
No, moron, it is an approved drug for use in those diseases. It is also approved for off-label use. So you’re saying if you’re at risk of dying from the Kung Flu, it doesn’t outweigh the potential risks?
And then he says this:
But read this:
“Dr. Anthony Fauci, whose “expert” advice to President Trump has resulted in the complete shutdown of the greatest economic engine in world history, has known since 2005 that chloroquine is an effective inhibitor of coronaviruses.
How did he know this? Because of research done by the National Institutes of Health, of which he is the director. In connection with the SARS outbreak – caused by a coronavirus dubbed SARS- CoV – the NIH researched chloroquine and concluded that it was effective at stopping the SARS coronavirus in its tracks. The COVID-19 bug is likewise a coronavirus, labeled SARS-CoV-2. While not exactly the same virus as SARS-CoV-1, it is genetically related to it, and shares 79% of its genome, as the name SARS-CoV-2 implies. They both use the same host cell receptor, which is what viruses use to gain entry to the cell and infect the victim.
The Virology Journal – the official publication of Dr. Fauci’s National Institutes of Health – published what is now a blockbuster article on August 22, 2005, under the heading – get ready for this – “Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread.” (Emphasis mine throughout.) Write the researchers, “We report…that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage.”
Faux Fauci approved the drug for a previous form of the Covid virus. What a absolute lying phony he is.
The report in no way demonstrates that Dr. Fauchi “covered up” diddly squat. The Global Research article is a cheap smear based either on the author’s inability to understand what he has read, or on his willingness to intentionally deceive his readers. Given the writer’s name—True Pundit—and his apparent ability to write comprehensible English, I’ll opt for the latter explanation. He’s deliberately cranking out disinformation in support of Trump’s hydroxychloroquine tale.
From the report in question:
The 2005 paper is about the chemical’s growth-inhibiting effects on an entirely different SARS-producing virus—SARS CoV, as opposed to SARS CoV-2. Minimizing that with an assertion that they have 79 percent of their genome in common is utterly ridiculous. Human beings share 84 percent of their genome with dogs. We are, in fact, talking about two distinctly different sorts of coronavirus.
Additionally, hydroxychloroquine was being tested in a cell culture, not on a human being.
These people aren’t pushing innocuous disinformation. It’s potentially dangerous. Some few people may be harmed or killed by inappropriate use of the drug. Countless others will be lulled into a false sense of security that promotes risky decisions, led to believe that there’s an effective preventative and a curative medication.
United States of Conspiracy
Every American should watch this Frontline documentary. There’s nothing in it but the truth. Maybe it would shock some people back to reality.
If there’s a hell, Alex Jones is probably going. He certainly wouldn’t be alone there.
@retire05: greggie the rock just has no common or other sense to understand medical issues. If one looks at the poorer countries who had no choice but to take chloroquine, they actually have out performed the so called “western” countries. India and Turkey have done well. A fair question is how can a drug that has been in use for over 50 years with no major side effects, now have dangerous side effects? chloroquine has been highly successful as a prothoracic and as a treatment in early stages of the corona virus when paired with zinc and an antibiotic.
@Greg: Hydroxychloroquine works. It is effective in treating COVID19. That has been undeniably proven. You on the left oppose its use because you fear the passing of this crisis before you can fully utilize it.
That is disgusting.
@Greg: Your “documentary” is just another attack on those that refuse to be sheep and accept the line given to them by the media or the government hook line and sinker. Those that will investigate for themselves.
There are plenty of Conspiracy Theories that turned out to be true, Spygate, the most recent. Antifa not a Myth, BLM.org Marxist group bent on overthrow of the Republic and fund raiser for the DNC. Crowdstrike never verified Russian hacking.
Alien ufos in government custody.
Alex is no threat they have done their level best to silence him. I dont know how having an old washed up DC insider as a guest gives him any more bonafides. I do see how Frontlines paranoid spinning could boost his ratings by raising curiosity. Libs are so dumb.
