    What pisses me off about this obvious grift is that there are people that actually need this drug to treat for malaria, lupus, and a host of other illnesses. These people are now unable to get this drug because Trump is touting unproven bullshit based on a few anecdotes rather than actual science. Some of these people will die because our President is searching for a miracle cure to solve his problems instead of actually doing his fucking jobs and leading this country.

    Not to mention that the absolute morons that believe our grifter in chief are trying to find ways to take this unproven drug and dying from it.

    This is all just distracting from the actual medical advice being pushed to stay inside, engage in social distancing, and wearing masks and other gear if you must go outside. And when actual experts like Dr. Fauci try to explain that to the American people, Donald Trump's ego gets hurt so he interrupts the man like a petulant child.

    It absolutely baffles me that anyone can take a con-artist reality tv star Trump seriously.

    The months of delays before taking action by this administration should be enough to impeach the man again and force him to resign this time. If he is still on the ballot in November, it should be the duty of any rational person in this country to vote for whichever Democrat is on the ballot and get him out of office.

      What else can I say other than 'I agree'?. Unfortunately getting him to resign is probably impossible otherwise the dems would have made him do that long, long ago.

        It is really up to the Senate Republicans, not the Democrats. The Democrats in the House could impeach Donald Trump a hundred times and it would not make a difference unless at least 20 Republicans crossed the aisle and voted to convict Trump.

        Maybe once a few hundred thousand Americans die of coronavirus due to Trump's negligence we could see some movement there, but even then I think they have tied themselves so wholly to Trumpism that it is unlikely to make a difference.

    I would like to point out that the co-author of this article is Kevin Roose. I first heard about him when a favorite author of mine, AJ Jacobs, recommended his book in 2009 titled The Unlikely Disciple about spending a semester at Liberty University. It's great to see his work continue to pop up in the news.
