"But just because he heard from some guy that some drug looked promising (just exactly on that level) doesn't automatically mean it isn't."

True.

But at least one idiot died after Trump said 'try it, you'll like it'.

What, exactly is ridiculous? That Idiot dosed himself on a fish remedy or that Trump encouraged it?

I'd say both.

Except that one guy is just your garden variety idiot while the other is POTUS.

Of course, you could be harboring a third alternative. If so, perhaps you'd deign to share it with this august body. :)

You can get the idea to try these drugs by reading the Chinese research paper, looking at the South Korean usage, or looking at other countries where they didn't reflexively oppose it because "orange man bad". The current hysteria is anti-science morons trying to block doctors from trying therapies.

Not only is Hydro+Zpac+Zinc not a "magic cure", the mechanism for why it might work is well understood.

The US media created this controversy, not actual Doctors/Scientists who were fighting this for 2 months before it hit America.

i wonder if new york times ccp dick sucking fuckheads ever take tylenol when they are unsure it will treat symptoms they are having or if they wait for the FDA to approve of it.

This anti medicine nonsense is goddamn nonsense and you should stop giving ear to these goddamn Fools at CNN and the NYT.
Are you OK dude? :notsure:
I'm fine, the media is broken and it is more dangerous than ever in a pandemic for them to be spreading misinformation.

These drugs could be saving lives possibly and they were being tried uncontroversially until the orange man mentioned them.

Did he encourage? Did he point out that a drug was promising?

This is absurd, an idiot doses himself with a fish drug and you thing the president bears any responsibility?

Why people keep trusting "news" organs that have been wrong the entire time I do not know.

"Sure, WaPO was wrong in January, February, and March, but in April they might have turned over a new leaf."

Insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results.

He did more than point out it was "promising", he claimed that the FDA had approved it, which isn't true at all.

If he turns out to be right later, that doesn't retroactively make it good information when it hadn't been confirmed yet.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

FakeNews again. The FDA said it was okay for doctors to use it at their discretion. He has even clarified it still needs full trials.

TURN OFF THE FAKENEWS.


It is hard to talk to people who don't even see fact based reality and you have to cut through tons of distortions they've been fed for 3 months.

Yes he did encourage. Yes he said it was promising. Yes the Idiot who died was an idiot.

Don't know what your referring to with this TDS thing, but I'm sure it's real cute. :)

May I point out that there is a difference between a drug and an industrial formulation. If the president said that hydration with saline was often effective would you think, even for a minute, to wipe salt off your pretzels and put it in tap water and then mainline it? Or get a gallon of saltwater from the beach?

Come on. If this were anyone but trump we would not be having this conversation.
