Klobuchar trolls Trump on taking drug that husband used to treat coronavirus by KerryPicket | May 21, 2020
Democratic Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar mocked President Trump on Wednesday about a COVID-19 treatment she believed her husband John Bessler was treated with during his bout with the disease.
“Well, I think that I listened to the science there. I believe he did briefly take that drug … or some drug like it, but I think that we have to listen to the science and you have to listen to your doctors with what is going to work in each individual situation,” Klobuchar toldSiriusXM's Michael Smerconishon April 7 regarding her thoughts about the debate swirling around hydroxychloroquine since her husband’s illness.
“Sometimes, you might have other conditions that make it so you can't take certain drugs. Sometimes your own condition with the virus wouldn't demand. I think people have to look at what works. I believe in science, something this president has been not listening to,” she added.
The Washington Examiner reached out to Klobuchar's office for comment but did not hear back.
Hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial medication, has been administered to patients for decades but has become a point of political debate after the president first touted it at the beginning of the lockdowns.
