Imagine, if you will, that you confided to your neighbor than you saw your doctor with concernd about the flu, and that you physician had given you a prescription.  In turn, your neighbor Karen had thrown a hissy fit and threatened to call 3-1-1.  Karen as adamant that she knew more about what was better for your health than your own physician.

Now Imagine that Karen instead of being your nosey neighbor was named Nancy Pelosi and was the Speaker of the House, from Beth Baumann, from Town Hall:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) decided to chime in on President Donald Trump’s decision to take Hydroxychloroquine, which has been said to be a potential treatment for the Wuhan coronavirus.

“As far as the president is concerned, he’s our president and I’d rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group, morbidly obese,” the speaker said. “So, I think it’s not a good idea.”

According to President Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, “the president is in very good health and has remained symptom-free. He receives regular COVID-19 testing, all negative to date.” After discussing the pros and cons of Trump taking Hydroxychloroquine, the two decided “the potential benefit from treatment outweighed the relative risks,” Conley said in a memo in a memo on Monday.

As far as I am concerned, as American citizen, I would rather see my, and our, President taking his medical advise from his physician, than an absentee Speaker of the House, with loose denture and a possible drinking problem. What say you?

Does Mrs. Pelosi honestly believe she more qualified to prescribe the President’s medical treatment than his trained, qualified and licensed physician? Or is their a darker, more sinister reason? Is Mrs. Pelosi a paid stooge of the Pharmaceutical lobby, from Jon N. Hall, American Thinker:

I haven’t been able to ascertain whether HCQ is manufactured in the U.S., but I do read that India “manufactures 70% of the world’s supply” of HCQ. Perhaps the concerns of Texas State Senator Hall (no relation) about “collusion” are valid. Perhaps Big Pharma is seeking a ban on the off-label use of a drug that is so dirt cheap that they can’t make any money making it.

An generic drug like HCQ could cut into eagerly expected profits from the pharmaceutical that may be in Mrs. Pelosi’s portfolio.

Continuing with possible Big Pharma corruption, how far do the tentacles of Big Pharma reach, from Matt Margolis, PJ Media.

Hydroxychloroquine has been approved by the FDA for over 60 years, and treats multiple ailments including malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, and is being investigated for other potential uses.

The media has desperately tried to undercut Trump’s positive message about hydroxychloroquine’s potential as a treatment for the coronavirus, calling it “unproven” and claiming there’s “no proof” that it works, and that certain at-risk people can die from the drug.

The media should not be using the talking points of a part-time Speaker to second quess a full-time President.
