The Evening Campaign Update
I laughed out loud while watching President Donald Trump inform the news media in a very offhand manner today that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine – in conjunction with azithromycin and zinc – for “a week and a half” during a press availability at the White House today. You could literally feel the reporters in the room gasp in unison and almost go out of their minds at the notion that the President of the United States is using this safe, effective, cheap and plentiful drug as a prophylaxis against the Wuhan virus. He just tossed it out there like he was ordering dinner – it was a truly glorious moment.
Here’s a clip:

No corrupt journalist on any network went crazier, though, than drama queen Neil Cavuto, who happened to be on the air when the President was toying with the White House press corps like my cat Max toys with lizards every day. After warning his viewers in a shaky voice reminiscent of Christine Blasey Ford’s mimicking of a teenage valley girl during her smear of Brett Kavanaugh that the drug “will kill you” if you have certain underlying conditions, Cavuto then went on to interview several people. One of them – Fox medical contributor Dr. Janette Nesheiwat, correctly informed him and his viewers that the drug can be “lifesaving” for certain patients who do not have those underlying conditions.
Watch Cavuto’s face fall and then try to cut her off as she delivers the news he most certainly did not want to hear:

This is crap that belongs on CNN, but it airs on Fox News every day at 3:00 CT. Maddening.
That is all.
