That’s it, blame Trump for your own stupidity

PHOENIX (AP) — A Phoenix-area man has died and his wife was in critical condition after the couple took chloroquine phosphate, an additive used to clean fish tanks that is also found in an anti-malaria medication that’s been touted by President Donald Trump as a treatment for COVID-19.

Banner Health said Monday that the couple in their 60s got sick within half an hour of ingesting the additive. The man couldn’t be resuscitated when he arrived at a hospital, but the woman was able to throw up much of the chemical, Banner said.

“Trump kept saying it was basically pretty much a cure,” the woman told NBC. She said her advice for people would be, “Don’t take anything. Don’t believe anything. Don’t believe anything that the president says and his people … call your doctor.”

    IT’S A FUCKING VIRUS!!!! The only “cure” for a virus is to let it run its course.

      And it’s gonna take a few people with it, maybe even me. That is Darwinism in action.

    You just can’t fix stupid, except by death. Hopefully they didn’t breed.

    Foreigners. Many are as idiotic as the leftist democrats. And my immigrant wife from Colombia has approved this message. I think it was her that told me these two idiots didn’t have American names.

    Darwin applauds. Or he would if he wasn’t taking a dirt nap.

    Hydroxychloroquine is an anti-malarial that can have known side effects and is only taken one tablet at a time, normally 500mg, weekly. It can be safe when taken in higher doses after medical determination of need, quantity and duration. Quinine Sulfate and Quinine Phosphate likewise.

    The malarial parasite is a plasmodium and quinine kills it. There are many types of plasmodia, including in aquariums, which are also killed by quinine.

    However, ingestion of fish tank cleaner because it happens to contain quinine in some form or other and of undetermined concentration is Darwin Award time for good reason.

    We would have been better off as a whole if she would have died as well.

    Anyway the press can spin it to blame Trump! You notice the article doesn’t mention other countries are using it or that WHO is doing trials.

    Even up here in Alberta the news a running this story including the ridiculous quote about not believing the President. Makes my blood boil and pisses me off to no end. Incredible how the media stays on message even in another country. Public enemy number 1! I can’t wait until we start hanging these bastards!

    Fish tank cleaner must be banned.Do it for the children.

      Unless Sisolak has the letters “MD” after his name, he can fuck right off with that. Or, maybe he should be charged with practicing medicine without a license.

    Darwin wins again.

    I happen to have 8 pills in the right form and dosage and proper instructions. I haven’t used any of it and will probably NEVER have to but it IS part of my bug off bag medical kit.

    Animal Medications are not always the same as Human ones.. So I check with my Vet before using them. Most stuff for Horses is the Same, for the Same Indications, as for Humans. It’s the Dosage that differs. Then, remember that both Pet and Human Meds come (came) from China in the first place.

    Some dude on another blog pointed out that these stooges were taking a product that had chlorooquinine phosphate in it as opposed to chlorquinine sulfate that is used in the anti-malarial drug. In other words Darwin won at least half another one…

    It cleared up their algae.

Play nice.
