Fox News guest describes malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a 'quack cure' for coronavirus
A guest on Fox News is criticizing calls to use the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, calling it a "quack cure" typical of epidemics.

"That is nonsense, complete and utter nonsense," Access Health International Chairman William Haseltine said in response to a direct question from Fox News's Dana Perino about the drug, which repeatedly has been touted by President Trump as a treatment for coronavirus victims.

Haseltine said that it was "sad" to see people in positions of authority promoting usage of the drug without sufficient tests for its effectiveness

"In any situation, there are always going to be people who promote one kind of quack cure or another, and there are Lazarus effects. In every epidemic I’ve ever looked at, that is the case," he said.

"It is not something to take unless a doctor prescribes it," Haseltine added.

In her interview, Perino described the treatment as a drug that health experts say has not been proved to treat the coronavirus.

A good question for every reporter to ask anyone who is commenting on this drug is: Do you have any personal or financial interest in this drug becoming the preferred treatment for COVID-19? To your knowledge, does anyone in the administration have such an interest?

Trump's in cahoots with the folk who sell the stuff, that's all it is.

That's all nice and well, but that's just a distraction from the virus. Stay focused.

Also, do you tend to be a dumb-ass liberal in reactions, opinions and feelings?

For example, did you have a tender heart for Hillary in 2016, thinking she'd make a perfectly fine president?

Access Health International Chairman William Haseltine sounds suspect. Follow the money with this guy.

You're keeping very busy with irrelevant responses today, Trigger.

Keep on supporting corruption.
