    CNN will offer a reward for the first reporter that finds someone that died from taking it.

    The President is taking a risk with his own health and his credibility for no apparent reason. I don't get it.

    If he doesn't need it, that's stupid.

    So what's the big deal? I know the press and the left hate it but there are a lot of doctors that say it works. I'm assuming that it's prescribed, is he taking it as a preventative in a low dose?

    If it works by way of the mechanism that is claimed, it would be prophylactic and decrease a persons chances of contracting the virus. Weighing that against the possible side effects would be between Trump and his Dr.

    The left seems to hate anything that isn't a vaccine being pitched by Bill Gates that's 8 months away from being available.

    So I guess that stuff isn't as bad as the media claims.

    Sounds like he has the cooties, if this is true.

    Also, where are these lies coming from? I am a front line worker and NONE of us are taking this stuff.

    It is not without some risk, not a good move to take it unless you really need to.

    I heard Laura Ingraham on her show say that she takes it when she goes to Africa as a prophylactic for Malaria. I guess that means it isn't such a risk for Trump?

    Mind your own business, and you won't be minding mine

    I think he was singing that when he started taking it

    This is what narcissists do. Once they make a pronouncement, anything that could bring that into question can not be tolerated, regardless of information to the contrary. If he was convinced that it would help him from getting CoVid-19 rather than using social distancing wearing a mask, he would just take it privately and stfu about it. But evidently he wants to stick it in the face of his medical advisers.

    Really as long as he doesn't have any serious heart conditions and taking a low dose he likely doesn't have anything to worry about.
