For the second day in a row, the liberal media were obsessed with President Trump’s decision to start taking hydroxychloroquine to possibly prevent coronavirus; a medication he obtained with a prescription from his doctor. Tuesday’s evening newscasts saw ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News continued their meltdown from the previous night, with the later boosting Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for attacking the President as “morbidly obese.”
CBS Evening News likely would have joined them, but unfortunately, some sort of major technical problem forced the newscast not to air.
But on NBC, anchor Lester Holt began the segment by declaring: “Under intense criticism, President Trump today defended his decision to take hydroxychloroquine, brushing aside potentially serious side effects.” Of course, the likelihood of suffering those side effects were rare, but the liberal media preferred to steer of that fact.
In the midst of the pearl-clutching, NBC White House correspondent Kristen Welker boosted Pelosi’s shot at the President.
