On Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decided to take a shot at President Donald Trump after he announced he was taking hydroxycholorquine as a preventative against the Wuhan coronavirus.

She starts off the interview blathering the Democratic mantra “for the children,” as Democrats do everything they can to try to bankrupt their future. Then she gets down to her attack.

“I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group & in his, shall we say, weight group — morbidly obese”

First, she continues to propagate this fiction that the drug is experimental or new, when it’s been approved by the FDA for decades for other uses. It’s been prescribed by thousands of doctors around the world and thousands in this country as a “off label use” to combat the virus. It’s also been used by some as a preventative. It can only be used if it is prescribed, so he’s only getting it because his doctor has approved it and thinks it’s the right thing to give him. So basically she wants to substitute her own non-medical opinion for that of the doctor.

Second, imagine if Trump had said this about someone? We’d never hear the end of this, how horrible he was for body shaming someone. Maybe she really doesn’t want to start talking about how someone looks lest someone start making botox comments. Because hey, now, she’s said this is okay to do, right?

Notice no pushback at all from CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

But what’s the reaction on the left and from the Democrats’ compliant activists in media? They praise her, oh, how great she is for saying it.

As my colleague Sister Toldjah pointed out, Cupp was dunked on by pharmacists for not knowing what she was talking about for attacking Trump for taking it as a preventative.

Others pointed out the utter hypocrisy of Pelosi and Democratic minions on this.
