Predictably, the mainstream media went absolutely bonkers after President Trump told reporters Monday that he had been taking hydroxychloroquine as a Wuhan coronavirus preventative after consulting with the White House doctor.

“After numerous discussions he and I had about regarding the evidence for and against the use of hydroxychloroquine, we concluded the potential benefit from treatment outweighed the relative risks,” Dr. Sean Conley, Trump’s physician, said in a statement Monday night.

Trump has been touting the drug for the last two months as a potential treatment for the virus, much to the dismay of our pearl-clutching mainstream media.

One of the media figures who expressed fauxtrage outrage over Trump’s announcement was none other than CNN’s S.E. Cupp, who probably made her colleagues proud with this attempted dunk on the President over his announcement:

There are many problems with Cupp’s hot take, the main ones being 1) she’s not a doctor, 2) she’s not a pharmacist, and 3) she’s an anchor for CNN, where the credibility crisis is very real.

Fortunately, actual pharmacists weighed in on Cupp’s comments and countered her faux concern by dropping some inconvenient facts:

My RedState colleagues Nick Arama and Bonchie also weighed in with responses I fully endorse:

It’s amazing how often the left’s “principles” change depending on the topic, isn’t it?
