(Natural News) After President Donald Trump mentioned during a recent press conference the potential benefits of hydroxychloroquine for treating the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), Anthony Fauci from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) quickly piped in that the remedy supposedly isn’t proven, and that people shouldn’t think of it as a “knockout drug.” So why, then, did he praise this very same drug back in 2013 as a treatment for the MERS coronavirus, a relative of COVID-19?
At the time, Barack Obama was occupying the White House, and an NAIAD study conducted by a guy named Darryl Falzarano found that an antiviral cocktail containing hydroxychloroquine showed incredible promise in vitro for preventing viral replication. Fauci jumped at the chance to praise the discovery, announcing that it was “particularly encouraging” because these drugs are “widely available,” meaning they can get into the hands of people who need them quickly and easily.
However, now that Trump and his administration are in charge, Fauci is singing a much different tune. Rather than express enthusiasm for the many cases of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) that have already been successfully treated with hydroxychloroquine, Fauci felt the need to throw a wet blanket over the whole thing and override Trump’s announcement in a stunning display of disrespect.
“You’ve got to be careful when you say ‘fairly effective,’” Fauci shot back at Trump after the president suggested, based on Fauci’s own statements from seven years ago, that hydroxychloroquine demonstrated effectiveness against SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome). “It was never done in a clinical trial that compared it to anything. It was given to individuals and felt that maybe it worked.”
In 2013, hydroxychloroquine’s benefits were “science;” now they’re just “feelings,” according to Fauci
Fauci couldn’t just leave it at that, however. He had to go on when pressed further about Trump’s claims concerning hydroxychloroquine to insist that the president simply “feels optimistic” about the treatment, suggesting that there isn’t any actual science to back it.
Such a claim is patronizing at best, and at worst serves as more proof that Fauci is little more than a deep state traitor who’s playing politics during one of the worst global pandemics in history. Rather than do what’s right on behalf of the American people, he’d rather trash our Commander-in-Chief on the world stage, and in the process put countless lives at risk.
Somehow, it was all “science” back when Obama was in charge during several coronavirus crises that precipitated the use of hydroxychloroquine as an inexpensive and effective remedy. But with Trump at the helm, it’s just “feelings,” according to Fauci, and Americans should instead wait for a magical future vaccine that will supposedly make everything all better.
The only real glimmer of hope with all this is the fact that perhaps more Americans than ever before are waking up to the charade, and realizing that Fauci is less concerned about protecting public health than he is about playing politics and making Trump look bad. He’s also continuing Obama’s disastrous legacy of trying to destroy the country while pretending to be trying to save it.
“Dr. Fauci is a puppetmaster for the vaccine industry and claims nothing can stop the virus except a non-existent vaccine,” writes Adams.
“He’s currently downplaying hydroxychloroquine + zinc, a combination that has so far achieved an astonishing cure rate among coronavirus patients, because he’s trying to position his buddies in the vaccine industry to reap windfall profits from whatever vaccine they come up with, which will of course be heralded as the savior of humankind.”
