Mike Pence announces that he’s not taking Hydroxychloroquine

Vice President Mike Pence was exposed to an individual who tested positive for Covid-19 last week. Now, in an exclusive interview with Fox News, he has announced that he is not taking Hydroxychloroquine as a prophylactic, unlike President Trump.

Breitbart reports:

When asked if he is taking hydroxychloroquine, Pence said, “I’m not but I would never begrudge any American taking the advice of their physician. hydroxychloroquine is a dug that has been around for more than 40 years for the treatment of malaria. Early in this process the FDA approved what’s called off label use, that physicians could prescribe hydroxychloroquine in terms that they deemed appropriate.”

Trump, for his part, made headlines this week after he stated that he was taking the medication at the advice of his doctor. Among other things, it prompted Nancy Pelosi to devolve into sophomoric insults about the President’s physical appearance.

Pence’s doctor didn’t advise the use of the medication, emphasizing the role of the physician’s instincts in dealing with a novel virus. Pence’s doctor is taking a different tack from Trump’s, which is how medicine works.

Here’s an example of how not to do medicine. Fox’s Neil Cavuto appeared to have a mini-meltdown when given the news about Trump’s use of the drug, exclaiming: “I cannot stress enough: This will kill you.”

Who gave Cavuto his MD? Oh wait, he doesn’t have one. Meanwhile, many real MD’s are (carefully) proscribing hydroxychloroquine when appropriate.

Here’s another example: On The View, co-host Joy Behar scolded coronavirus survivor Tom Kelly (R-PA) for taking Hydroxychloroquine during his battle with the disease, saying: “I can’t believe anyone with a brain would take that stuff.”

I can’t believe anyone with a brain is still watching The View. Behar’s comment is an example of the danger of politicized medicine.

Hydroxychloroquine is a proven, tested drug that thousands of people take for other diseases. Like all medications, it can have side effects, some of which can be very deadly indeed.

That’s why we have doctors, and why doctors sometimes differ as to the best course to avoid the greater risk.

Trump’s doctor may think differently than Pence’s, but at least both are thinking, which is more than you can say for Cavuto and Behar.

  1. CONSIDERING how little either Cavuto or Behar know I would suggest they keep their UN-EDUCATED MOUTHS SHUT ON THIS SUBJECT.

  2. Cuvoto is anti Trump, thim for him to retire, he is biased and worthless. He is NOT an asset to FOX Business, but a huge liability!

  3. The two individuals mentioned, Behar and Cavuto, are brainless and actually stupid. To make the statements they make are just pandering for ratings. I really can’t believe The View is still on the air but I guess there are some stupid people who must have their gospel.

    1. It really is sad that these rude, insensitive, mouthy stupid women actually get paid to spew inaccurate crap from their mouths. And as you say, WHO WATCHES THEM? Only the foolish and lame with NOTHING worthwhile to do with their time! WHO CARES WHAT THESE FOUL WOMEN HAVE TO SAY? They are has-beens & nobodies with nothing valuable to say. I have more important things to do….

  4. I would rather listen to and believe those individuals who have been through the virus, were prescribed the medication, were cured by the medication than an entertainer (stretching this statement) or a financial expert.
    Anyone who doesn’t believe this is strictly a political item should look into what the democrats and the fake media have done to the Congresswoman, who happens to be a democrat, was extremely ill due to the virus and requested the same medication the President is taking, was almost immediately cured and had the nerve to tell about her case.
    The democrats have scolded her for praising the President for telling the country about this medication and want her censured. Censured for telling about her experience and horror being honest about her praise for her president.

    1. My question/concetn is instead of these ads wipes just aaying Hydrochloriquine is bad prove it or provide some actual data reflecting deaths caused by it? The real truth is they cannot any significant data because several honest scientists and doctors have stated it has little or no side effects or resulting deaths. The only test they have mentioned is one test involving some veterans where the patients were given the Hydrochloroquine improperly or too late with serious respiratory conditions. Democrats and fake news have lied to you and people have died when there is an inexpensive treatment
      available. This is another reason that people do not trust our govt. President Trump may be one of the few Americans left that cares about us and our country.

  5. I’m not a fan of manipulating ones response to something they believe in.All of these people who are trying to force people to fall in place for their agenda should be a crime in a political scenario. This is a reason why pelosi can’t get along with our President.

    1. And yet, all of the reporters on CNN and other lefty TV shows, and some on other non lefty shows who are NOT practicing physicians or even RN’s who can understand the medical aspects, put their (wrong/incorrect) 2 cents in on the subject. They should be charged with practicing medicine without a license. Regarding Hydroxychloroquine, according to the practicing physicians who use it….with Dr. Wallace from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (Los Angeles) a rheumatologist with a 42 year practice treating rheumatoid arthritis and lupus a major source, Hydroxychloroquine is a very safe 65 year old drug with very few side effects. Wallace has treated thousands of patients over his 42 years with it. No one, including this RN, without direct information on all of the patient’s circumstances, has any business condemning/inserting an opinion with a physician’s treatment of his patient….especially when the patient has good results.

    2. You are right there is a reason she doesn’t get along with the President it is called she wants power and President Trump want allow them to make us a third world country.
      He stands up for the American people. I could go on but I am sure you get the point.

  6. President Trump is an adult. He is consulting his physician. Not many reporters are Doctors. Media does not like the President. They just need to pull up those big girl panties.

  7.

  8. I know a number of people, including my son-in-law, who take hydroxychloroquine for other issues including Rheumatoid Arthritis and are perfectly fine. If there is a chance that it helps with or prevents getting COVID-19, I totally support the use and don’t see how it can be any worse than taking something else. The Media is totally out of control!
