On Tuesday’s installment of “The Daily Show,” shot from Noah’s home, the host boggled over the president’s persistent peddling of drug combinations to treat COVID-19.
“What do I know? I’m not a doctor,” Trump said during a press briefing Sunday during which he touted the use of anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a potential treatment for coronavirus and suggested there was nothing to lose by giving it a go. Multiple doctors immediately advised that there was a lot to lose, from mild to severe side effects and even death.
“Here’s what I don’t get,” Noah said. “Trump is acknowledging he’s not a doctor while legitimate doctors who could answer these questions are standing right there next to him. Why are we getting his opinion at all? Imagine if you went in for a check-up and there was just some random dude behind your doctor giving his opinion.”
