Donald Trump turned on Fox News and what he saw left him seeing red
Donald Trump does not always see eye-to-eye with the hosts on Fox News Channel.
In recent months, the President and his supporters have openly questioned the programming Fox News puts on the air.
And when Donald Trump turned on Fox News and what he saw left him seeing red.
Fox News host Neil Cavuto attacked President Trump for Trump’s announcement that he was taking hydroxychloroquine to ward off any potential coronavirus infection.
Cavuto ranted and raved bombarding his audience with panic and propaganda about how hydroxychloroquine could “kill you” even though it was deemed safe by the FDA decades ago for use against other diseases.
A number of studies, those certainly vulnerable in the population have one thing to lose, their lives. A VA study showed that among a population of veterans in a hospital receiving this treatment, those with vulnerable conditions, respiratory conditions, heart elements, they died.
Those who took it, in a vulnerable population, including those with respiratory or other conditions, they died. I want to stress again — they died. If you are in a risky population here and you are taking this as a preventative treatment to ward off the virus or, in a worst-case scenario, you are dealing with the virus, and you are in this vulnerable population, it will kill you. I cannot stress that enough. This will kill you.
So again, whatever benefit the president says this has — and certainly has had for those suffering from malaria, dealing with lupus — this is a leap that should not be taken casually by those watching at home or assuming, ‘well, the President of the United States says it’s okay.
President Trump was not happy about Cavuto ignoring the facts that multiple studies around the world have shown hydroxychloroquine shows some promise in treating coronavirus and fired off a tweet about how Fox News had changed and maybe the American people needed an alternative.
“Fox News is no longer the same. We miss the great Roger Ailes. You have more anti-Trump people, by far, than ever before. Looking for a new outlet!” President Trump wrote.
