The new White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is a fireball! The is always ready to give an answer to any question thrown at her and is prepared to throw questions right back.
Last week, she ripped into CNN host Chris Cuomo after he attacked President Trump's taking of the drug hydroxychloroquine when he himself took an even more dangerous drug while he was positive with COVID-19.
“You had Chris Cuomo saying, ‘the president knows that hydroxychloroquine is not supported by science. He knows it has been flagged by his own people and he’s using it,'” McEnany said during the press briefing on Wednesday as she highlighted attacks from the media on Trump taking the drug that he got from his doctor.
“Well, Cuomo mocked the president for this and interestingly, I found this out just before coming here, hydroxychloroquine, of course, is an FDA approved medication with a long proven track record for safety,” McEnany continued. “And it turns out that Chris Cuomo took a less safe version of it called quinine, which the FDA removed from the market in 2006 because of its serious side effects, including death. So really interesting to have that criticism of the president.”
For those that haven't seen it yet, here was today's episode of @PressSec @KayleighMcEnany absolutely owning the liberal media. Kristen Welker asked the questions, but among her targets today? Kimmel, Scarborough, and Fredo Cuomo https://t.co/2JVyrdT67ipic.twitter.com/Hxwv0fvonx

The media wants to constantly highlight how there supposedly is no evidence that the drug helps anyone who comes down with the virus. This is largely based on Dr. Anthony Fauci saying that there is no 100% proof positive evidence that it works.
That is "technically" true in that there haven't been any fully completed long-term studies to back up the claim. There is however, hundred if not thousands of actual case studies of people who just miraculously got better after taking the drug. I personally know someone who contracted the virus and I thought he was going to die. They gave him hydroxychloroquine
