The Wuhan coronavirus continues to have unprecedented effects around the globe.
Donald Trump is working with health officials to stem the rising tide of confirmed cases here in the United States.
But Democrats are blaming Trump for something that will make your blood boil.
The number of confirmed cases worldwide has surged past 400,000 with over 18,000 deaths.
Thus far, the United States has been better able to contain the spread of the virus compared to countries like Italy and Spain where the death rate is several times higher.
Despite America’s relatively good response in these challenging times, Democrats are determined to widen the partisan divide and blame Trump for the outbreak.
The most disturbing example of this happened when the so-called mainstream media tried to deem Trump responsible for an elderly couple drinking fish tank cleaner.
According to reports, an antimalarial cocktail of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin seems to ameliorate symptoms of the coronavirus.
The couple decided to drink fish tank cleaner because the solvent contains chloroquine phosphate – but chloroquine phosphate is not the same chemical form as the antimalarial drug.
Nevertheless, the couple guzzled the cleaner and became gravely ill.
The husband passed away and his wife remains hospitalized, but in stable condition.
Their reason for drinking the solution was because Trump said it was a cure for the coronavirus (which they never tested positive for).
Except he never said anything remotely close to that.
There has been anecdotal evidence of success of the antimalarial drugs from doctors and patients, including Hollywood actor Daniel Dae Kim, one of the stars from the hit television series “Lost” and the remake of “Hawaii Five-0.”
And while there is reason for optimism, health officials have cautioned that the malaria treatment is not a definitive cure for the coronavirus.
Trump tweeted about the malaria cocktail possibly being a solution to the current pandemic and echoed the same sentiments during a press briefing.
However, the Democrat Media Complex instantly spun Trump’s words into a ringing endorsement and then blamed him for the couple’s tragic outcome.
NBC News contacted the woman and teed her up to blast Trump.
“Trump kept saying it was basically pretty much a cure,” she said.
“Don’t take anything. Don’t believe anything. Don’t believe anything that the president says and his people…Call your doctor.”
Other media outlets jumped on this bogus narrative.
The Democrats are so desperate to damage Trump, they’ll blame him for anything.
He never said people should drink fish tank cleaner.
Trump simply reported the anecdotal evidence from practicing physicians who have found success with the treatment.
And if the media’s dishonesty wasn’t already apparent, New York governor Andrew Cuomo made similar statements about the antimalarial drugs but hasn’t been blamed for “killing” anyone.
In fact, the corporate press has lauded him for essentially following Trump’s lead.
This is what Trump means when he calls the corporate press the enemy of the American people.
