"I’ve seen a lot of apoplectic coverage of hydroxychloroquine," McEnany told reporters. "You had Jimmy Kimmel saying the President is, quote, 'trying to kill himself by taking it.' You had Joe Scarborough saying, quote, 'This will kill you.' Neil Cavuto saying, 'What have you got to lose? One thing you have to lose are lives.' And you had Chris Cuomo saying, 'The President knows that hydroxychloroquine is not supported by science. He knows it has been flagged by his own people and he’s using it.'"
"Well, Cuomo mocked the President for this," she continued. "And interestingly, I found this out just before coming here: Hydroxychloroquine, of course, is an FDA-approved medication with a long-proven track record for safety. And it turns out that Chris Cuomo took a less safe version of it called quinine, which the FDA removed from the market in 2006 because of its serious side effects, including death. So, really interesting to have that criticism of the President."
