I edited this out of the draft of yesterday’s blogpost because I needed to shorten it:
“Trump has also, once again, recommended hydroxychloroquine, used to treat malaria, arthritis and lupus, as a possible cure, despite only anecdotal evidence that it works and proven evidence of potentially harmful side-effects. His own public health advisers warned people not to take it for Covid-19. Do you think Trump smoked dried banana skins back in the 1960s?”
A few hours after I published the shortened post yesterday evening, the “very stable genius” Donald Trump said the US government had ordered 29m doses of hydroxychloroquine.
