Revelation that her husband recovered from COVID-19 with the aid of hydroxychloroquine has lowered Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar's odds for snagging the spot as Biden's vice-president on the Democratic ticket for this year's election. CNN's Chris Cuomo called it "a likely coup de grâce for her. This is the drug touted by Trump. Every Democrat is expected to hold to the Party line view that it is dangerous and ineffective."
Klobuchar has publicly adhered to the Party line, calling the drug "a menace" and mocked Trump's recent declaration that he has taken it as a preventive therapy. She sought to distinguish between her political and personal attitude toward the medication, saying that "my husband is a good person and deserves every chance to live. Trump, in contrast, is a bad person who needs to be removed from office by any means possible. I think my ability to make this distinction should bolster my credentials for the VP slot."
Meanwhile, sensing an opportunity, rival VP contender Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif) has introduced legislation that would classify the use of phrases like "Wuhan virus, Chinese virus and Kung Flu" to describe the coronavirus as a "hate crime."
"Racist attempts to blame the pandemic on the Chinese government are fraught with peril," Harris maintained. "China has the ability to destroy us economically and militarily. We must not provoke them. Vice-President Biden has spent decades currying favor with China. We must show their government where we stand as a nation so he can continue those efforts after he is elected president."

That and the fact that she was beside herself with grief when he was diagnosed, and crying tears of joy when he was discharged from the hospital, showed her to be far too much of a normal person to possibly be in the running for realsies.
How dare they take the medication that doesn’t meet our approval! We’d rather burn to death with fever and convulse like dying chickens than take something Trump promoted.
