Trump revives hydrochloroquine nonsense

President Donald Trump and his top White House aides have aggressively renewed their promotion of hydroxychloroquine as an effective treatment for Covid-19, as the administration seeks to shift blame for the resurgence of the coronavirus less than 100 days before the November election.

Despite robust medical research showing the decades-old antimalarial is not helpful to Covid-19 patients and could even have adverse effects, Trump and his allies have attacked the Food and Drug Administration for warning against its use and touted the drug as a potential way to tame the pandemic.

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro led the charge Wednesday with his continued defense of hydroxychloroquine in defiance of scientific evidence. But he declined to address the president’s praise for a Houston-area physician who falsely claimed the drug was a coronavirus cure and has promoted other conspiracy theories related to alien DNA and demon sperm.
