Donald Trump Jr. attacked the woman who nearly died because his daddy promoted chloroquine as a cure for coronavirus.
A woman and her husband both ingested fish tank cleaner believing that it would protect them against the virus because it contained chloroquine, which President Donald Trump has frequently trumpeted as a miracle cure even though the Food and Drug Administration has not officially cleared the drug as a treatment.
The woman became seriously ill and had to be hospitalized. Unfortunately, her husband died. And it’s because they listened to Trump’s reckless claims.
Don Jr. suggested the woman murdered her husband in an effort to clear his daddy of any blame.
I look forward to the media follow up to this story. I mean they were very fast to blame Trump for this couple dosing themselves with Fish Tamk Cleaner 🙄 that people likely deserve to hear this part too? No? https://t.co/oODNA0dv04

So a crazy person drank fish cleaner because your dad said it was o.k.?
What’s the defense for AR-15s?

It’s for this very reason that #Trump needs to be careful what he says as POTUS…you never know who is listening and how they will respond. Thanks for pointing out how dangerous it was…

Smearing someone who almost died and lost a loved one is not what this country needs right now. Don Jr. should be convincing his dad to respond appropriately to this crisis in order to prevent more deaths. That means telling him to stop promoting untested medications as a miracle cure.
