Ohio State Democratic Rep. Tavia Galonski made a mighty cavalier claim against President Donald Trump last night. The state representative from Akron said she “can’t take it anymore” plus wants President Donald Trump prosecuted in international court for alleged crimes against humanity.
“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow. Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.” she posted.
Her post in reply to a thread beginning: “So is the BLOTUS pushing this drug HYDROXYCHLOROQUIN (sic) in the hopes that IF it works, he will get nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize?”
Rep. Galonski replying to a comment that read: “And an invitation to The Hague for crimes against humanity for pushing a drug that hasn’t been tested for coronavirus patients.”

“I need every lawyer that ever did any work on the international level to contact me,” she wrote Sunday. While repeatedly offering her personal email addresses, asking supporters to “send me your name and legal qualifications.” How hard can it be?” she questioned.
The Ohio Capital Journal told:
Galonski said her plan was to find out on Monday the referral procedure for reporting an alleged crime against humanity to The Hague.
Her post received considerable attention, receiving 18,000 likes within just two hours and more than 70,000 by 6 p.m. on Monday.
At a press briefing late Sunday, the president recommended the drug Hydroxychloroquine despite limited evidence of its efficacy in treating the virus. “What do you have to lose? I’m not looking at it one way or another. But we want to get out of this. If it does work, it would be a shame if we didn’t do it early,” he argued.
Yet National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci announced, “The data are really just at best suggestive. There have been cases that show there may be an effect, and there are others to show there’s no effect.” Along with, “So I think in terms of science, I don’t think we could definitively say it works.”
Does Galonski actually have a valid case here?
