Michigan State Rep. Karen Whitsett (D-Detroit) thanked President Trump for talking about hydroxychloroquine and saving her life since the drug wasn’t available in her state.
“If President Trump had not talked about [hydroxychloroquine], it would not be something that’s accessible” in Michigan “because of an order that was put down in my state,”
For just a moment, forget about the politics. Forget about who has a “D” and who has an “R” after their respective names.
Listen to this woman’s story, of how terrified she was after testing positive for the coronavirus, a diagnosis that could be a sentence to a long, painful, horrible, awful illness; and at worst a death sentence.
And now look at her… At home, smiling, laughing, and grateful for access to the hydroxychloroquine her own governor blocked just to own Trump; a drug she would not have known anything about had Trump not had the courage to talk about it, even as our increasingly unbalanced and sociopathic media rage against him over his heroic act of raising awareness.
To be clear, we don’t know for a fact the hydroxychloroquine made the difference or any difference for Rep. Whitsett. There’s a possibility Whitsett was already predisposed to shrug the coronavirus off quickly. But that doesn’t matter.
What matters is that thanks only to Trump’s moral courage, a terrified woman who wanted every chance at life, every chance at beating this thing, was able to gain access to it. And what really matters is if in fact it did make the difference. And if that’s the case, if this drug did save her and her husband from the horrors of a long illness or worse, the only person who deserves credit for saving her is President Trump, something Whitsett all but expressed in an earlier interview.
“It has a lot to do with the president … bringing it up,” Whitsett said. “He is the only person who has the power to make it a priority.”
