Former Trump Official Warns ‘You Can’t Stay Above Crazy’ After Birx Video Goes Viral

Brett McGurk served as special presidential envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL. As somebody who worked for Donald Trump, in addition to George W. Bush and Barack Obama, he knows what it’s like in the trenches.

Trump thinks nothing of touting unproven chemical cocktails as the cure for COVID-19.

On April 5, at his presser, Trump got into full pitch man mode. What do people have to lose? How about their lives? And you know he’s making this up, because the tell is, “a lot of people are saying.”

“What do you have to lose? And a lot of people are saying that when — and are taking it — if you’re a doctor, a nurse, a first responder, a medical person going into hospitals, they say taking it before the fact is good.  But what do you have to lose?  They say, ‘Take it.’ I’m not looking at it one way or the other, but we want to get out of this.  If it does work, it would be a shame if we didn’t do it early. But we have some very good signs. So that’s hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin.”

NPR reports:

A panel of experts convened by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases recommends against doctors using a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin for the treatment of COVID-19 patients because of potential toxicities.

“The combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin was associated with QTc prolongation in patients with COVID-19,” the panel said.

QTc prolongation increases the risk of sudden cardiac death.

“Sudden cardiac death” vs. “What have you got to lose?” The real question is, who do you want to listen to, the medical community or Dr. Trump? It’s no wonder that against this backdrop of sheer irresponsible lunacy that a former official who served in the Trump asylum for a time kicked in these words of experience.

That is a chilling bottom line. I have nothing to add.

When is anyone going to tell this idiot Trump , SIR , “you are president of these United States”. “When are you going to act as though , you know what your doing “? “What you say as president , is important, and folks listen to what you say . Some will even act upon it “. and do foolish things you recommend. “Act like your president, even if you do know how . Just keep your mouth shut . “ “Don’t offer medical advice , that you are not trained to do “. What you say counts to some… Read more »

That sentiment is all too rational and logical in the deluded twilight zone of ‘private bone-spurs’. The jeanie is out of the gin bottle and it ain’t the friendly kind that’s going back in anytime soon. He’s punch drunk with power, adulation and an ego of biblical proportions. In his private universe, the more money you have the ‘smarter’ you are. No amount of PhD’s and degrees compare with Billionaire status, nothing. What does science have to do with his great and almighty mind? Science and facts don’t make billionaires, when ‘fudging the books’ and borrowing against false assets will… Read more »

I’d guess it depends on how many stupid or misinformed people that make up his base believe in him . It’s been written ( in Greek I think ) ! “ in the presence of fools , even the GODS have been known to shrug and walk away “! I think that about sums it up . His base has chosen to go (down and drown) with him . The evangelical’s are absolutely nuts anyway ! If they truly believe in GOD , they’d ask why we in The United States, with less than 5 percent of the population, have… Read more »

It’s really sad where you have these very good professional people that are trying their best to help us and they have a clown that thinks you can safely shoot up lysol. What is wrong with this idiot?
