Peter Navarro is like a QVC host when it comes to Hydroxychloroquine. One has to assume his personal investments in this drug are so massive that he is impelled to promote the fake cure as if his entire fortune depends on it.
In the latest sales pitch, Navarro told CNN's Erin Burnett that a video by Dilbert cartoonist (and right winger) Scott Adams would answer all her questions and definitely seal the deal on this great offer! Free shipping! Call now!
Erin Burnett wasn't buying. "I find that to be offensive because he’s a comic strip writer."
She then name-checked actual doctors: Dr. Fauci, Dr. Brett Giroir, and Dr. Deborah Birx, none of whom have endorsed hydroxychloroquine as a cure for COVID.
Navarro barked back. Birx had not “come out against hydroxychloroquine,” and then Burnett played an actual video of Birx saying “no evidence that the drug improves those patients’ outcomes, whether they have mild-to-moderate disease or whether they’re seriously ill in the hospital.”
And then the truth comes out:
You BET on this drug and you LOST, Peter. All the right-wing cartoonists in the world can't help you now.
