The Evening Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
Send in the clowns. There ought to be clowns. – Last week, two craven political hack governors – Steve Sisolak in Nevada and the detestable Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan – made the indefensible decision to deny their citizens the right to be treated with hydroxychloroquine for the Wuhan Virus. On Sunday, the FDA issued an emergency authorization to doctors to use that cheap, highly-effective drug across the United States.
Today, the two circus clown Governors reversed their stupid edicts, now allowing those who contract the Virus in their states to be treated with the drugs. Better late than never.
Nevada Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak has now decided to allow malaria drugs hydroxychloroquine and chloroquin to be prescribed for the impatient treatment coronavirus patients, a spokesperson on Tuesday.
Sisolak previously endorsed restrictions on the use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquin as the Trump administration touted its potential effectiveness in treating coronavirus.
Influential Republicans such as Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) have criticized Sisolak for his state’s handling of the drugs, which on Monday received emergency Food and Drug Administration approval for treating coronavirus patients.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer drew fire from some on the right after the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) sent a letter last week threatening “administrative action” against doctors who prescribed two experimental drugs that could potentially help coronavirus patients.
The Whitmer administration has since removed the language threatening doctors from the letter and is now asking the federal government to send shipments of the drugs, Bridge magazine reports. The Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency authorization for the antimalarial drugs hydroxychloroquine sulfate and chloroquine phosphate on Saturday.
Conservatives including Charlie Kirk and Rudy Guiliani accused Whitmer of risking lives to oppose President Donald Trump. In recent weeks, Whitmer and Trump have been sparring on national television over federal aid for Michigan, while Trump has touted the drugs’ potential in treating COVID-19.
Note that the despicable Whitmer is not only reversing her ban, but now begging the federal government to ship her quantities of the drug. Hey, maybe she tested positive herself – that would par for the course for this insufferable clown.
These people make me sick. They are among the worst people in our entire society.
That is all.
