Rand Paul Says "Hatred for Trump" Influences Scientists Not Studying Ivermectin...

Rand Paul Says “Hatred for Trump” Influences Scientists Not Studying Ivermectin as Potential Covid-19
Treatment


Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) claimed that researchers won’t study ivermectin, a toxic anti-parasitic used to treat parasitic worms, lice, and skin problems in livestock because of their “hatred” for ex-President Donald Trump.

“The hatred for Trump deranged these people so much that they’re unwilling to objectively study it,” Paul said in an interview with The Cincinnati Enquirer. “So someone like me that’s in the middle on it, I can’t tell you because they will not study ivermectin. They will not study hydroxychloroquine without the taint of their hatred for Donald Trump.”


Although he acknowledged that he does not know if ivermectin works, Paul said he will “keep an open mind.”

Former President Trump often promoted treatments that have not been shown to be effective in preventing or curing Covid-19 infections. He infamously endorsed using hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug, when in office, even though doctors advised against it.

Ivermectin has not been shown to be effective in preventing or curing Covid-19 infections. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned advised individuals to stop taking it after receiving reports that people had been hospitalized for using the drug.

Hopefully voters in Kentucky will come to realise that.

6. No Earl G, you don't understand...

You see hatred for Trump has "tainted" those studies, and any other study that methodically and according to all of the known safeguards of science, that doesn't show any benefit of using those drugs which Paul and Trump are promoting.

That way, in true scientific fashion, cause you know Paul is an Ophthalmologist (licensed by the fake board he invented when the official State Board wouldn't license him); anything that doesn't fit into the narrowly defined, acceptable narrative, can be dismissed as biased.

That is the only thing that Conservatives/Republicans are good at, framing the narrative. Since they have no sense of shame, and do not seem to care about facts and truth, they are able to make things up and promote them. Their built in media ecosystem, then reports on the issue, then the politicians go out and say, "This is being reported everywhere" or "People are saying..."

It is disgusting, but it is effective.

5. First, I'd like to see him drink a bottle of bleach, then shove a UV light up his keister . . .

then, and only then, can he discuss the scientific validity of Commander Covidiot's treatment regimens.

(Though I suspect, midway through his esophagus bleaching and UV high colonic he'll be begging for ivermectin to help flush his system.)

7. No Ayn Rand

It's about YOUR hate. You are so full of hate that it makes you, a doctor, reject science and facts

11. I guess that Rand doesn't understand how "hatred of tRUMP" led me to be among

the 81 million people that voted tRUMP out of office. But then Rand has never been too bright. It's way past time for him to hit the road too. Hate isn't always a negative thing, y'know!

14. You must not have been using it, Randy

When you contracted Covid. But now you're vaccinated....you can afford to lead sheep to the slaughter.

Not this Kentuckian.

16. Sadly he's a symptom

Not the disease of stupidity.

Stupid people vote for Paul.

Smart people either vote for his opponent, or are disenfranchised through the GOP trickery and fuckery in Kentucky.

As long as the stupid people are the majority in Kentucky - America is stuck with this taint wart.

19. Um, it's not "hatred for Trump". It's this new thing called "science". Look it up.

Of course if you want to take it and shit your brains out, we're not going to stop you. But don't be surprised if you wind up in the ER.

20. This guy claims to be a doctor, but doesn't seem to know the difference between a parasite and a

virus. No wonder he had to create his own professional organization to become accredited.

22. Imagine being like this pathetic sychophant

When a world leader is admired like a God no criticism is allowed it seems. I bet Rand Paul turns off the TV anytime someone starts talking bad about Trump what a weakling
