The TDS media keeps fighting back under the guise of protecting us from President Trump’s optimism which may, God forbid, give hope to suffering American people in our fight against COVID-19.

Of course, while screeching “TRUMP IS NOT A DOCTOR!” the media immediately pounced, even though THEY’RE NOT DOCTORS.
Andrew Feinberg, who used to work for Sputnik News (LOL) but now covers the White House for something called Breakfast Media LLC., and is a regular contributor to the liberal leftist Independent, blasted the president for posting “ignorant snake oil drivel.”
But remember as CNN’s babbling bulbous buffoon Brian Stelter loves to remind us: Reporters don’t root for either side.
Holy shit, this is ignorant snake oil drivel spewing forth from the President.
Azithromycin is an ANTIBIOTIC.
Antibiotics are NOT effective against VIRUSES.
He might as well tweet about colloidal silver. https://t.co/CKLW2oC1Wv

But then a REAL Doctor lambasted the Media TDS idiocy.
Stop with your ignorant rants. Even a basic literature search would prove your uneducated tweet wrong. Although I am one, you don’t have to be a medical doctor to understand this. https://t.co/iAraSwrPzw https://t.co/xvI3Gc7sEF

Thank you for that journal article. As it points out, Azithromycin DOES have some antiviral properties as well besides combatting secondary bacterial infections, so combining it with chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine may provide a double whammy against the Wuhan coronavirus.

TDS Media Firefighters Pounce
But no worries Chris Jansing Senior National Correspondent and NBC firefighter was Johnny-on-the-spot to extinguish even the slightest spark of hope the American people had.
An MD friend just texted me – livid- that the President suggested drugs to help are available “for immediate delivery”. In fact – the FDA chief points out – chloroquine IS approved as an anti-malarial but needs clinical trials before being used for coronavirus. NOT immediate

But Nan Hayworth, an actual Doctor, and not one created by Jansing’s TDS imagination, did go on record.
A drug or biologic can legally be prescribed for an off-label purpose once it has been approved by the FDA, even if the approval was for another purpose. It does not have to undergo further clinical trials to be legal, though clearly evidence-gathering is important and prudent. https://t.co/F0zesoxNLx
