Donald Trump told reporters this afternoon that he’s been taking the drug hydroxychloroquine, even though doctors and studies have warned of serious or fatal side effects. It was revealed last month that Trump, who’d been touting the malaria drug as a cure for COVID-19, had a small financial stake in the drug’s manufacturer, Sanofi. Is he telling the truth? Who knows? He could be making it up. He’s a skilled liar. Anything is possible. What if a side effect is turning orange? How would we know the difference?
The news freaked out Fox News’s Neil Cavuto, who seemed concerned Trump might die.

But then Cavuto’s crazy producers found some nitwit doctor to say it wasn’t so bad.
