Gov. Cuomo Just Stuck A Knife In The Heart Of Media’s Claim That Coronavirus Drug Is Dangerous
There were fireworks toward the end of the week between the President and the media over a hopeful treatment for the coronavirus. After the back and forth the media went crazy claiming the President is touting using Chloroquine as a treatment to fight the Wuhan Virus is dangerous. I would hate to inform them that on Sunday Gov. Cuomo stuck a knife into the heart of media theory and is siding with President Trump.
Peter Alexander from NBC News asked the President if his biases regarding were giving Americans false hope.
“Is it possible that your impulse to put a positive spin on things may be giving Americans a false sense of hope?” Alexander asked.
“No, I don’t think so,” Trump replied.
“It may work, it may not work, Trump said. “I feel good about. That’s all it is, it’s a feeling.”
“What do you say to Americans who are scared though? I guess, nearly 200 dead, 14,000 who are sick, millions, as you witnessed, who are scared right now,” Alexander asked. “What do you say to Americans who are watching you right now who are scared?”
The President rightfully unloaded on him called him a terrible reporter. The clip has been manipulated by the media you can watch the exchange below.

Then the “experts” in the media jumped in.
President Trump insists there is cause for optimism about drug therapies for coronavirus, despite caution from his top government scientists that the treatments’ effectiveness is not proven. https://t.co/SynDusMSJ9

Just a couple of days later it appears that Governor Cuomo of New York believes in the treatment as much as President Trump does and decimated the media’s narrative, they are going to start trials on Tuesday.
Looks like Coumo has become a Deplorable. If Trump can win Andrew Cuomo over, anything is possible. https://t.co/qabz4XvSHx
