Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) actually thinks researchers are not pursuing ivermectin as a possible COVID-19 treatment because of their disdain for former President Trump.
“The hatred for Trump deranged these people so much, that they’re unwilling to objectively study it,” Paul said on ivermectin
“So someone like me that’s in the middle on it, I can’t tell you because they will not study ivermectin,” the senator added. “They will not study hydroxychloroquine without the taint of their hatred for Donald Trump.”
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned Americans just last week not to take ivermectin
“You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it,” the FDA said on ivermectin
In April, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concluded after a series of trials that hydroxychloroquine, a drug touted by Trump during his presidency, “had little or no effect on preventing illness, hospitalization or death from COVID-19.”
