There has to be a money trail here. His promotion of this specific drug is just absurd.

Come on arrhythmia
 
2020-05-18 4:41:45 PM  
He is lying.
 
2020-05-18 4:43:10 PM  
He has noting to offer but false hope and empty promises, so why not push the lie.
 
2020-05-18 4:43:21 PM  
They are feeding him placebos, aren't they?

Let's hope not.

I have already braced my young daughters for a Mike Pence Presidency, however short it may be.

This.  Watching the clip, he's lying.

Bullshiat.

cretinbob: Come on arrhythmia


As the owner of an arrhythmia, I find it hard to get behind this.
 
2020-05-18 4:50:33 PM  
He knows because his morning drug cocktail smells different when he snorts it.
 
2020-05-18 4:50:36 PM  
Hopefully he'll start injecting bleach and UV next.
 
2020-05-18 4:50:55 PM  
Bullshiat ..
 
2020-05-18 4:51:06 PM  
"So far, I seem to be ok," Trump said.

God damn he just can't stop lying, can he?

/I second the Placebos comment
//And the arrhythmia one
///I mean, why not both?
 
2020-05-18 4:51:08 PM  
What the living fark....why is he doing that?  Its not a preventative, and unless he actually has the covid, or thinks he's going to get it from Pence or something...whats the point?

On the other hand...a week and a half ago...thats around the time when all the white house cases came out.  What do you bet he's scared shiatless and is desperate.
 
2020-05-18 4:51:24 PM  
Still not sure if he's lying (and not taking it) or stupid (and taking it).
 
2020-05-18 4:51:36 PM  

bass555: He is lying.


A fair assumption, regardless of whatever utterances happens to be emerging from his face at a given moment.
 
2020-05-18 4:51:40 PM  
I don't believe him.
 
2020-05-18 4:51:51 PM  
Switch to hydrochloric acid.  I hear it's completely effective at eliminating all symptoms of..everything.
 
2020-05-18 4:51:56 PM  
But remember: we can't vote for Biden because he has a stutter and that's clearly worse than...whatever the fark this is.

Narrator: "Trump was, in fact, not taking hydroxychloroquine,"
 
2020-05-18 4:52:37 PM  
If he is taking it, the doctor who prescribed it should be struck off.
 
2020-05-18 4:52:39 PM  

bass555: He is lying.


Well, I mean, they might be telling him it's hydroxychloroquine.

fragMasterFlash: They are feeding him placebos, aren't they?


Trump: "Hydroxychloroquine is a tremendous medication. They even come in little Fred Flintstone shapes.  No one has ever thought of that. Bigly tremendous."
 
2020-05-18 4:52:52 PM  

bass555: He is lying.


You only know that because his lips are moving!
 
2020-05-18 4:52:56 PM  

bass555: He is lying.


This. He's definitely ignorant enough to do it but can only go 50/50 on his actually taking it.
 
2020-05-18 4:53:09 PM  

bass555: He is lying.


That's a bingo.

He's just saying it in a desperate attempt to make people think it wasn't stupid of him to suggest it as a cure.
 
2020-05-18 4:53:21 PM  
If he's asymptomatic why is he being prescribed a drug for a condition he doesn't have, isn't recommended treatment for, and has side effects that are harmful?

If he's taking it (he's not) his doctor should lose their license.
 
2020-05-18 4:53:21 PM  
Die, you fat, orange Fark.

2020-05-18 4:53:31 PM  
How else is he going to move all the pills the White House bought unless he can claim it stopped him from contracting coronavirus, gave him a lusher head of hair, and added 2"?
 
2020-05-18 4:53:38 PM  
I can't with this guy. He just lies non-stop. He's not taking it. Why would he be taking it if he doesn't have coronavirus? It has such serious side effects you shouldn't even take it if you DO have the virus, and this guy is popping a pill daily for no reason? Then he gives his reason as because "I've gotten a lot of calls" from medical professionals praising it."

From another article:

Donald Trump revealed Monday he is taking hydroxychloroquine, a malaria drug he has pushed for weeks as a treatment for coronavirus -- even though he has tested negative and federal health agencies have warned of serious negative side effects

"I take it," he told reporters. "All I can tell you is, so far, I feel okay."

The president said he has taken only an initial dose. "It seems to have an impact," he said. "Maybe it does, maybe it doesn't. ... You're not going to get sick and die."

Mr Trump said he has taken the drug for "about a week and a half now," adding: "I take a pill everyday" and has had "zero symptoms."

The president said he is taking the drug because "I've gotten a lot of calls" from medical professionals praising it. His revelation comes several weeks after the New York Times reported the Trump family has a financial tie to the parent company of the firm that makes hydroxychloroquine.

Myrdinn: bass555: He is lying.

This.  Watching the clip, he's lying.


Are his lips moving or is he tweeting. If so the lying is pretty much a given.
 
2020-05-18 4:53:54 PM  
Hydroxychloroquine made by Placebo. Says so right on the tablet.
 
2020-05-18 4:53:55 PM  
It could be a lie. It could also be that White House doctors hate him and want to kill him by giving him unnecessary meds. In fact I'd say it's definitely one of those two options.

The death cult kicks it into a higher gear.  Pretty soon, all the Republicans who follow blindly will be dead from drinking the kool aid as it were
 
2020-05-18 4:54:11 PM  

freakay: What the living fark....why is he doing that? Its not a preventative,


Actually it is a preventative... for malaria. I used to take the shiat every day in Africa in the 90's. What you have to remember is that Donald Trump is both a liar and an idiot.

fragMasterFlash: They are feeding him placebos, aren't they?


Yes Mr. President, the Bam Bams are the ones you want, they're tremendous.

/Don't know if Flintstones vitamins are still a thing.
 
2020-05-18 4:54:27 PM  
So he'll announce that he's taking drugs based on nice phone calls (of course he's lying), but he can't be bothered to put on a farking mask?

What the hell is the con here with this drug?  Why is he so completely obsessed with pushing it?
 
2020-05-18 4:54:39 PM  
I said it in a different thread but I'll say it again. Unless I witnessed Trump take it from a dose handed to him by an independent pharmacist, I don't believe it.
 
2020-05-18 4:54:43 PM  
Let me just get this out of the way now.

First, Trump is really losing his shiat for real.  He told reporters that he was wearing a mask the other day when there was clear video evidence that he wasn't.

Second, he is feeling incredibly desperate and trapped.  He is lying.  Of course he is lying.  However, he is also f$cking insane and very dangerous.

Bootleg: "So far, I seem to be ok," Trump said.

God damn he just can't stop lying, can he?

/I second the Placebos comment

OK is NOT that. Good to know we can ALL Self-medicate. I think every Republican should follow him over the farking cliff and start taking it.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Still not sure if he's lying (and not taking it) or stupid (and taking it).


He's got to be lying.  It isn't a preventative, so no doctor in his right mind would prescribe it to him.

Could you imagine trying to defend your medical license when you mis-prescribed a drug that gave the President of the United States a fatal heart attack?  Sure, he'd become my personal hero, but sadly that job doesn't pay much.

or given a medal?
 
2020-05-18 4:55:56 PM  
I thought it was to ease symptoms and it didn't work. Trump is pretending it is a preventative of Covid-19 now?
 
2020-05-18 4:56:20 PM  

bass555: He is lying.


Yup, this is damage control for all the studies saying it doesn't do shiat for corona, and the side effects were dangerous.
