Dr. Stella Immanuel, the doctor notorious for touting hydroxychloroquine as the “cure” for COVID-19 has denounced White House doctors for not treating Donald Trump with the drug now that he has contracted the coronavirus.
Immanuel gained national recognition back in July after Trump retweeted a video of her touting hydroxychloroquine, a drug used for malaria, as the cure for COVID-19. In a series of tweets on Friday, she condemned Trump’s “bozo doctors.”
“Instead of giving the president of the United States a known safe drug,” Immanuel tweeted.
“They gave him some experimental antibody stupidness. This is so dumb. Please potus family you guys wake up. Give him HCQ, Zpack & zinc asap.”
“Whoever told the president to stop taking HCQ should be punched in the face,” she said in an earlier tweet. “This did not have to happened. I am so upset. This is our president for crying out loud. No one need to get sick or pcr positive.”
She then tweeted, “POTUS case demonstrates importance of early treatment. Yet current standard of care is NO early treatment. Send home till they can’t breath.”
“The masses need an effective, early treatment like POTUS.. HCQ cocktail is the answer. HCQ -$30, remdersivir – $4000. Admitted, $30K plus.”
She followed that up with, “Everyone in the White House get on HCQ twice a month. With daily vit C, D, and zinc. If your doctors will not prescribe it I will.”
“I can see you via a telehealth emergency licensed in DC. Use http://frontlinemds.com and I will hook you guys up. POTUS, FLOTUS don’t wait to get sick.”
On Friday night, Dr. Sean Conley the White House physician issued a statement about Trump’s condition just before he was flown to Walter Reed Medical Center. Trump is expected to remain at the hospital for “several days.”
“Following PCR-confirmation of the President’s diagnosis, as a precautionary measure he received a single 8-gram dose of Regeneron’s polyclonal antibody cocktail,” Conley wrote. “In addition to the polyclonal antibodies, the President has been taking zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin, and daily aspirin.”
Leonard Schleifer, who is the CEO of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, says that taking his company’s experimental treatment, which is created with potentially virus-neutralizing antibodies, could see Trump’s condition improve within a one-week period.
Several medical experts have expressed that they have little confidence in the effectiveness of the treatment.
On Friday night, Conley issued a second statement revealing that “in consultation with specialists, we have decided to initiate Remdesivir therapy” for Trump.
Trump repeatedly pushed hydroxychloroquine as a “game-changer” during the early months of the pandemic. He even claimed that during a two-week period in the month of May he was taking the drug as a precaution.
In July the FDA revoked hydroxychloroquine’s emergency use authorization after evidence mounted that suggested that it was ineffective.
After the video of Immanuel brought her worldwide attention other facts about the controversial doctor came out. She has in the past claimed that lawmakers aren’t human, but reptilians in disguise. She also believes that birth defects are caused by people sleeping with demons and witches in their sleep and that modern medicine was created by using alien DNA.
“She was very impressive,” Trump said of Immanuel after her controversial beliefs became public.
“I don’t know which country she comes from, but she said that she’s had tremendous success with hundreds of patients and I thought her voice was an important voice.”
