Pelosi says 'morbidly obese' Trump taking hydroxychloroquine 'not a good idea'
The Hill ^ | 5/18/2020 | christina marcos

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Monday that it's "not a good idea" for President Trump to be taking hydroxychloroquine as a potential treatment for coronavirus.

"I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group, morbidly obese, they say," Pelosi said during an appearance on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360."

"So, I think that it's not a good idea," she said.

Trump said earlier in the day that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine, which is used to treat malaria, for the past week and a half after one of his personal valets tested positive for the coronavirus.

Trump has repeatedly touted the drug as a potential coronavirus cure or preventative measure over the past two months, despite the lack of evidence that it's effective against the disease.

"Here’s my evidence: I get a lot of positive calls about it," Trump said on Monday. "So far, I seem to be OK."

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) also called Trump's decision to take hydroxychloroquine "reckless."

"I know him saying he is taking it, whether he is or not, is reckless, reckless, reckless. It gives people false hope, has people avoid real medical attention, and can actually cause them trouble. It is just dangerous what he did," Schumer said on MSNBC.

The Food and Drug Administration warned last month that the drug should not be taken outside of a hospital or clinical trial due to the risk of heart rhythm problems.

An analysis of patients at Veterans Affairs hospitals across the country found that the death rates of people treated with hydroxychloroquine were higher than those who did not receive the treatment.

The White House later Monday released a memo from the president's physician

“”I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists...”

It’s been an approved drug for decades.

Why do they say such nonsensical and delusional things.

I’m not the first commenter to say this, but if President Trump said that Stacey Abrams was “morbidly obese,” it would lead the news, and Trump would be universally denounced as a racist body-shamer.

Pelosi says people in 'morbidly obese' Trump's 'weight group' shouldn't be taking hydroxychloroquine.

Her only motive here is the golden opportunity to call POTUS a fatty beneath a veil of false concern.

Forget everything else.

She is purposely crude, vulgar and extremely disrespectful.

She therefore opens herself to the same treatment.

What goes around, comes around, bitch.
