The President Can’t Save Stupid People From Themselves

Is President Trump causing Americans to accidentally commit suicide due to his reckless optimism over as-yet-untested coronavirus drugs?

That’s the basic story from NBC News. They just covered the tragic tale of an Arizona couple who heard President Trump touting the promising results from a drug called chloroquine in treating patients with the coronavirus.

This couple heard Trump talking about the drug, took a look around their house, and found what they were searching for on top of the fish tank. Why, what luck! Here they were in the middle of a pandemic, and they had the cure-all sitting right there.

And so, without any further consideration, both the husband and wife took a big dose of chloroquine phosphate, a drug used to kill parasites in fish.

He’s now dead.

She’s in the ICU.

And she’s blaming the president.

“My advice,” the woman told NBC, “is don’t believe anything that the President says and his people because they don’t know what they’re talking about.”

Right, because we all remember when Trump instructed fish owners to dig around in their pantries for chloroquine phosphate and ingest it to ward off the coronavirus.

NBC News chronicles the couple’s fatal mistake:

The name “chloroquine” resonated with the man’s wife, who asked that her name not be used to protect the family’s privacy. She’d used it previously to treat her koi fish.

“I saw it sitting on the back shelf and thought, ‘Hey, isn’t that the stuff they’re talking about on TV?'”

The couple — both in their 60s and potentially at higher risk for complications of the virus — decided to mix a small amount of the substance with a liquid and drink it as a way to prevent the coronavirus.

“We were afraid of getting sick,” she said.

Within 20 minutes, both became extremely ill, at first feeling “dizzy and hot.”

Look, that’s a sad story, no doubt about it. But come on. We’re seeing reporters, pundits, and random Twitter idiots blame this couple’s misfortunes on Trump, and it’s just absurd.

The president can’t save stupid people from themselves.

  1. It’s to bad that Trump can’t give correct information like Gov. Cuomo lets face it he is smarter then Trump. The good news is America will survive Trumps bungling, thank god for that.

    NY Gov Cuomo gives updates on state coronavirus by the factual numbers and explains everything in such a detail that everyone understands what he’s trying to do. So much unlike Trump.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzylXAEePvA

    • And Cuomo is the reason for the lack of resperators that he never replenished back in 2015, also he just praised the prez. For his great job on getting more supplies . Know what you’re talking about

      • I’ve always said that some people just can’t breathe fresh air and walk at the same time…My bet, Allen will be the next brain-dead Liberal to drink drain-cleaner, and vodka and off himself. Spot on, you CANNOT save stupid people from themselves. Even God has a hard time convincing people of how stupid they are. No wonder He said that he “cannot abide a fool” because of their concious stubbornness.

    • If you can do better, jump right up with your ideas! All the Demonrats are bitching about everything Trump does! They’re more interested in windmills & abortion in pkg, not helping people who need it! Not one of them has offered a dollar to help with anything! If Trump gave every man, woman and child a million dollars & a cure for the virus you’d still be bitching!

    • Wow,your one of these stupid people with TDS! Go to the Pet store and find some of this phosphated chloroquine and have a taste!
      As Forest Gump said, “Stupid is as Stupid Does”!
      As for Cuomo and his brother, there both buffoon’s!

      • Direct result of being a 60’s hippie smoked 2 much mary jane& lsd brain burnt out. Like under obummer they thought they had a possible cure 4 aids but wound up giving it 2 volunteers. I wonder how many humanoids got this vaccine
        Maybe this couple got the vacations

    • Allen— Seriously I worry about you! Are you on some sort of hallucinogentic drug? Or are you just another brainwashed Democrat?

    • Cuomo is Fredo and his info is not accurate either. He is only worried about his and his mafia family’s bottom line….

    • Gov. Cuomo does a pretty good job, BUT asking the federal government to BAIL OUT the state of NY is a self serving, idiotic idea. Every single city, town, county, state and the federal govt is in trouble financially. Instead of using our federal tax dollars to bail out big cities/states like New York, every municipality needs to figure it out on their own. Feds simply are trillions in debt and don’t have the $ to bail out individual cities and states.
      Additionally, Gov Cuomo states “now is the time not to fight and name call, we need to all pull together”. In the next breath he rants and raves about the federal govt not doing enough, demanding all fed ventilators be sent to NY. Though of us in other states are going Huh? Other states will be needing the ventilators, too. Will Cuomo give them up as soon as some other area needs them? Very doubtful. He is good at focusing on NY, but totally unaware of the rest of the country. This behavior is short sighted and Hypocritical.

      • You must not be a demorat. With the smart response you gave says it all. Each individual is responsible for themselves. The demorats think only of themselves for money and power. Unfortunately it seems to be rubbing off onto some republications, such as insider trading. But, since they are a member of congress their misdeeds will go unnoticed in the eyes of the law.

    • Cuomo had a chance to purchase respirators but he and his Democratic/Leftists/Liberals/Socialist buddies spent the money on other useless projects. He also had a stockpile of these self-same respirators in a warehouse all the while he was screaming for more and more. The only time a Democrat is telling the truth is if they are in pain and then it woudl still be suspect.

    • You’re stupider than my pet rock ! Cuomo is an Asshole lying POS.All he’s looking for is attention. He’s lied many times and has hid respiratory units.Dont be a asswipe like Cumo

  2. But QUOMO FORGOT OR JUST PLAIN DID NOT ORDER MORE MASKS AND VENTILATORS, WHATEVER! AND HE TRIES TO BLAME TRUMP!! BULLSHIT! TRUMP IS BEST POTUS IN ALL OF OUR LIFETIMES!! NO POTUS HAS DONE MORE FOR USA EVER!! IF YOU’RE NOT W TRUMP YOU’RE AN IDIOT & MOST LIKELY LOST TO MSM BRAINWASHING!!

  3. Cuomo has TDS and would never have close off entrance to the US, just like Obama didn’t do in 2009 with the H!N! virus, 60 million infected in the US alone. the presidents handling of the virus has saved many lives but, Remember, can’t fix stupid or people with TDS.

  4. OMG it’s Trump’s fault that people are dying from being stupid. That’s crazy. He wants to keep people informed as to what they’re finding that is being successful to help with the virus. He’s NOT giving how much is required to take to save lives. Stupid people are deciding the dose on their own and taking it and dying. That’s not the President’s fault. That’s just plain stupid!!! He tries to give hope and they blame him for their stupidity. So if someone on the street was selling drugs, would you buy them and take them? People need to take responsibility for their own stupidity. That’s the problem today. People make stupid decisions, but it’s never their fault. Maybe the President should should say that the daily briefings are for people with an IQ over 10.

    • Ninety nine % of people know not to just take something off shelves and consume it. That couple probably suffered from TDS, just as commenter Ahole……”oops”, I mean Allen above does. Sounds like the Tidepod challenge all over again.

  5. The crisis that we are experiencing is the result of over 50 or more years of progressively godless behavior for which we are all responsible. We can’t blame God, President Trump or New York’s Governor Cuomo for how we have freely chosen to live our lives. We have simply reached the bursting point for what society has done to itself.

  6. That drug has work in some people but it’s not the same in what hospitals use. You just can’t take anything that’s totally ment for something else. I know people are panicking but we have to be real.
    Our President is doing a great job 100% better than Obama did with H1N1 virus. I have total faith in our President maybe not congress but I do our President. Practice what he is say, believe in what they tell you to do and

  7. Theses are the actions of an organization desperate for ratings, trying but failing to convince people that Trump’s the enemy and they’re simply trying to prove it to us. Beyond despicable!

  8. Nothing new here. Just what all D’s do and have done last 3 years since they lost. So thankful that we have DT in DC and not Billary! DT talks to us every day…each time I see him…I have more confidence in him and his team, eventually solving/fixing this pandemic. Has gotten and will never get any help from the D’s. They “know not what they do”. They all are committing political suicide…talk about dumb/stupid. They all are poster children for those maladies! Not to worry, most of them will be gone or at least in the permanent minority of both Houses of Congress, come Nov.

  9. This turned out to be a Darwin thing. It was more Chlorine in the Gene Pool. Forrest Gump said it well…”Stupid is as stupid does”.

  10. You can’t educate dumb. Now before you try anything call your doctor or visit your doctor for a prescription. There are a lot of different drugs out there also what’s one mans medicine is another mans poison. They said that the drug there talking about shows promising results. Remember the president is not a doctor

  11. Allen if you’re going to be critical of people at least learn how to spell. I think you’re one of the stupid people this post is talking about.

  12. CUOMO WAS GIVING INFORMATION THAT THERE WERE 40,000 SICK IN N.Y.
    A DOCTOR SAID TODAY ON THE NEWS, THERE IS NO WAY THEY COULD PROVE THOSE NUMBERS BEING GIVEN WERE ACCURATE. (DOCTORS NEED DATA) HOSPITALS, CDC,ETC.
    PRESIDENT TRUMP IS HOPING THE MEDICINE MENTIONED FOR MALARIA WOULD WORK BECAUSE THERE WAS SUCCESS IN OTHER COUNTRIES. HE AND THE DOCTORS, CDC, ETC.ARE MEETING AND TALKING CONSTANTLY.
    PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TRYING TO BE OPTIMISTIC AND GIVE (US) AMERICA HOPE.
    PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE CORONA VIRUS TEAM (DR.FAUCI) AND OTHERS ARE WORKING CLOSELY TO MAKE SURE ALL AMERICAN’S ARE SAFE AND GETTING THE PROPER TREATMENT.. STOP SPREADING FALSE INFORMATION. OUR COUNTRY NEEDS TO BE WORKING TOGETHER INSTEAD OF BEING SPLIT. MORE CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED BY WORKING TOGETHER. STOP NIT PICKING EVER WORK PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO HELP?. HOW ABOUT PRAYER, BEING PROACTIVE. WE ALL NEED TO DO OUR PART BY SUPPORTING OUR LEADER.
    MAY GOD BLESS OUR PRESIDENT, VICE PRESIDENT AND EVERY AMERICA CITIZEN THROUGH THIS DIFFICULT TIME.

  13. you can’t blame PEOPLE doing the “SEVERE STUPIDS” on the POTUS! . . . These dumb people did it to themselves. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  14. To DAWN M.MATERA,
    I DON’T KNOW HOW OLD YOU ARE BUT YOU NEED TO BE EDUCATED. THE DEMOCRATS ARE THE ONES NOT SIGNING THE CORONA VIRUS STIMULUS PACKAGE. IT’S FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ONLY. NOTHING ELSE WAS TO BE ADDED THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PACKAGE.
    THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE CAUSING THE DEATHS OF MANY BECAUSE HOSPITALS, AND OTHER MEDICAL FACILITIES AREN’T GETTING THE THE MASKS, RESPIRATORS, MEDICINES, ETC. NEEDED TO KEEP PATIENTS ALIVE. AND THIS HELPS TRIBUTE TO HEALTH CARE WORKERS GETTING SICK ALSO. THEY ARE ALSO KEEPING PEOPLE FROM GETTING BACK TO WORK. PEOPLE WILL STARVE BECAUSE THEY WON’T HAVE MONEY FROM THE STIMULUS PACKAGE TO BUY FOOD, PAY RENT. SO PUT THE BLAME WHERE IT LIES. AT THE FEET OF THE DEMOCRATS. THEY WANT MONEY FOR ABORTIONS TO KILL BABIES ALONG WITH OTHER THINGS.KEEP LISTENING TO FAKE NEWS AND THEY WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE FALSE INFORMATION (LIES) TO PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO BELIEVE EVERYTHING THEY SAY. DO SOME HOMEWORK AND FIND OUT. THEY TAKE PART OF WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS AND THEY ADD WHAT THEY WANT TO THE REST. FAKE FAKE NEWS (MSNBC, CNN). THEY DON’T SHOW UP AT BRIEFINGS TO GET THE TRUTH AND IF THEY DID GO TO A BRIEFING, THEY WERE RUDE AND WOULD DISRUPT THE BRIEFINGS. THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS SITUATION AND THEY WANT TO PLAY WITH PEOPLES LIVES LIKE THIS.

  15. When they find a cure, we need the president to be the only one to announce it. Then let the media say it is fake and people keep dying because of their TDS. How fast would the media be strung up.

  16. Try more interested in how much money he is going to make off the sale of USA hats…Allyssa Milano just came up with the brilliant idea that President Trump turn all of his hotels(1) into hospital beds and rooms. You know as well as I do that this loud mothed bitch would be the first to scream “PROFITTEERING” from the roof of every mansion she owns($31MM, net worth)…

  18. the PROOF that “you can not fix stupid”is being proved every time a democrap opens his mouth. the SAME applies to the news fools, abc-cbs nbc-msnbc-nyt. and the rest of the never trumpers. THEY OPEN THEIR MOUTH AND STUPID FALLS OUT…..

  19. It is quite true that even Duck Tape can’t fix stupid, but if a double layer of tape is placed over the mouth it can muffel the noise.

  20. Correct, people just don’t want to listen. Stay home, means stay home. Food, medicine or medical appts are the only reason to be out…….period
