Democrats and the mainstream media have been melting down over Trump's push to make the drug hydroxychloroquine available to people suffering from the coronavirus.
They think Trump should be prosecuted for "crimes against humanity" for promoting the drug, and have vowed to refer him to the International Criminal Court.
The New York Times claimed Trump is "dividing the medical community" by suggesting the drugs use. SPECIAL: 15 Discounts Conservative Patriots Can Get That Most People Don't Know About
But there's one Democrat lawmaker who just went rouge to reveal the stunning truth about Trump's hydroxychloroquine push.
Democratic Michigan state Rep. Karen Whitsett is determined to tell anybody who will listen how hydroxychloroquine saved her life, and how she credits Trump for it.
From Detroit Free Press:
A Democratic state representative from Detroit is crediting hydroxychloroquine — and Republican President Donald Trump who touted the drug — for saving her in her battle with the coronavirus.
State Rep. Karen Whitsett, who learned Monday she has tested positive for COVID-19, said she started taking hydroxychloroquine on March 31, prescribed by her doctor, after both she and her husband sought treatment for a range of symptoms on March 18.
"It was less than two hours" before she started to feel relief, said Whitsett, who had experienced shortness of breath, swollen lymph nodes, and what felt like a sinus infection. She is still experiencing headaches, she said.
Whitsett said she was familiar with "the wonders" of hydroxychloroquine from an earlier bout with Lyme disease, but does not believe she would have thought to ask for it, or her doctor would have prescribed it, had Trump not been touting it as a possible treatment for COVID-19.
Incredible story that is already infuriating those on the left. Rather than celebrating the fact that Whitsett's life was saved, they can't stand the fact that she credits Trump for it.
Trump has simply said that because the drug shows promise — and there is nothing else on the horizon that can be shown to do so — Americans who are in danger of dying from the coronavirus should have the option of taking it.
After hydroxychloroquine saved her life, Whitmann went on Fox News to endorse Trump's call for Americans to have a chance at taking the drug.
Without Trump pushing hydroxychloroquine at the daily coronavirus briefings, it could not have been an option for her.
Good for Whitsett for being unafraid to take a stand against her own party and give credit where credit is due.
