“I limited the broad use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, promoted by the administration as a panacea, but which clearly lack scientific merit.” NPR: Federal Scientist Says He Was Removed For Resisting Unproven Coronavirus Treatments.

+ The government’s own VA has found that the use of hydroxychloroquine caused more deaths and no benefit. So why the hell was the president, known for knowing nothing about science, pimping this drug nonstop? Just look at how extreme his sales effort was (with an assist, of course, from Fox News).

+ There is something terrible at the root of this story. Someone needs to follow the money. Not only was it reckless for a science-hating, non-doctor to hawk a drug that ended up having deleterious, and even deadly, results. It also made the drug much harder to find for the people who actually needed it.
