The other day I posted a complaint by a doctor friend of mine who cannot get hydroxychloquine for his patients with Lupus because it is in scarce supply since Trump reverted to his snake oil salesman past and is touting the off-label use of hydroxychloroquine as a Coronavirus cure.

"What do you have to lose? And a lot of people are saying that, and are taking it." --Donald Trump

What you have to lose
"Dr. Megan L. Ranney, an emergency physician at Brown University in Rhode Island, said in an interview on Sunday night that she had never seen an elected official advertise a miracle cure the way Mr. Trump has.

“There are side effects to hydroxychloroquine,” Dr. Ranney said. “It causes psychiatric symptoms, cardiac problems and a host of other bad side effects.”

Dr. Ranney said that the drug could be effective for some patients, but that there was not nearly enough scientific evidence to support Mr. Trump’s claims.

“There may be a role for it for some people,” she said, “but to tell Americans ‘you don’t have anything to lose,’ that’s not true. People certainly have something to lose by taking it indiscriminately.”

Hydroxychloroquine has not been proved to work against Covid-19 in any significant clinical trials."

Follow the money
"If hydroxychloroquine becomes an accepted treatment, several pharmaceutical companies stand to profit, including shareholders and senior executives with connections to the president. Mr. Trump himself has a small personal financial interest in Sanofi, the French drugmaker that makes Plaquenil, the brand-name version of hydroxychloroquine."

Donald Trump is a Ponzi scheme operator and snake oil salesman
The Trump Network bought the Ideal Health which was a multi-level-marketing company—that’s the polite term for "pyramid scheme"—founded in the 1990s that sold personalized vitamin supplements based on the results of a urine test.

The company had to settle a lawsuit with the FTC over false claims that "Supreme Greens"—one of their signature products—"cured cancer." (See video below)
