Oh, and heard on the radio (Limbaugh)…until it wasn’t.
Hydroxychloroquine got dropped like a campaign slogan that focus grouped lower than Dick Cheney.
President Donald Trump and his allies in conservative media have subtly scaled down their hyping of hydroxychloroquine as a potential cure for the coronavirus, according to a POLITICO review of White House briefings and cable news coverage.

His daily press briefings aren’t — they’re feeding events for a troll.
