Good Tuesday morning.
Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

- President Trump holds a Cabinet Meeting
OMG TRUMP IS TAKING HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE
On Monday, President Trump announced to a flabbergasted media that he was taking the demon drug hydroxychloroquine. I happened to be watching the press event live and I knew there would be a massive media meltdown to follow. I was not disappointed.
“I’m taking it – hydroxychloroquine,” the president said at a roundtable with restaurant leaders.
He added: “I think it’s good. I’ve heard a lot good stories. And if it’s not good, I’ll tell you right [now], I’m not going to get hurt by it.”
Following the press conference, Neil Cavuto took over the FNC broadcast and HE HAD A TOTAL PSYCHOTIC BREAK.
“If you are in a risky population here and you are taking this as a preventative treatment to ward off the virus, or in a worst case scenario, you are dealing with the virus and you are in this vulnerable population it will kill you,” Cavuto warned. “I cannot stress enough. This will kill you.”
“This is a leap that should not be taken casually by those watching at home or assuming, ‘Well, the president United States says it’s OK.’ Even the FDA [Food and Drug Administration] was very cautious about [taking] this unless in a clinical trial, safely and deliberately watched,” Cavuto said. “I only make this not to make a political point here, but a life and death point. Be very, very careful.”
Let me clarify a few things. Cavuto is not a doctor and has no medical or science background so he has no idea what the hell he is talking about. I don’t know if hydroxychloroquine is an effective therapeutic against the Chinese virus because I am not a healthcare professional. What I do know is that the drug has been around for decades, it’s used frequently (and FDA approved) for patients who have Malaria, Lupus or Rheumatoid Arthritis so it can’t all of the sudden be DEADLY because Cavuto and other guttersnipes hate Trump.
There was a parade of hysteria from cable news “medical professionals” on corporate media outlets, blubbering about how dangerous it is that Trump touts the value of hydroxychloroquine because witless TrumpTards will start eating it like Chex mix. NO. People cannot buy this at 7-11, it requires a prescription from a doctor. No one is getting the drug without medical care and if your medical care giver thinks you are a good candidate for the drug, then WHY NOT? Who are these media jesters to say otherwise? Several people in the WH have tested positive for the Chinese virus, why wouldn’t Trump take this prophylactically?
After Cavuto dissolved into a puddle of rage, he had on Fox News contributor Dr. Janette Nesheiwat who throat punched him.
“You have to have a discussion with your doctor to decide if it is best for you,” Nesheiwat warned. “It is not going to be good for everyone but it may be beneficial and potentially life-saving for others.
“So, I think it is good to have this medication in our toolbox along with remdesivir while we wait for a vaccine to become approved,” she added.
We have to look at the individual’s medical history,” Nesheiwat emphasized. “What medicines are they on? Do they have any underlying medical problems? This is not a medication for everyone. But it is important to have that conversation with your doctor to define is it best for you? Are you at a higher risk of death for the coronavirus?”
Nesheiwat also said she thinks it is “very smart” for Trump to take the drug as a “prophylactic preventative measure” after members of his administration tested positive for the virus in recent days.
Very smart! And it only got worse for Neil.
Nesheiwat said she had personally prescribed hydroxychloroquine to many of her patients, with mixed results.
“For some of them, they said it helped tremendously. For some of them, it didn’t make much of a change,” she explained, reiterating the importance of “having a discussion with your doctor to decide if it is best for you.”
Trump was given the drug with the guidance of his doctor.

Corporate media report Pompeo was being investigated by fired IG about Saudi Arabia arms sale
The resistance is always looking for an angle to nab the Trump administration. After Trump fired the State Department Inspector General last week, the wailing and lamenting began, claims of COVER UPS were abundant. The word was that Pompeo was under investigation, he had a staffer walk his dog, do his laundry or something like that. But now, we are hearing that Pompeo was under investigation for a Saudi arms deal.
Ousted State Department Inspector General Steve Linick was investigating Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s decision to greenlight arms sales to Saudi Arabia against the will of Congress when he was abruptly removed from his post, congressional officials tell NBC News.
The probe into the Saudi arms sale is the second known investigation into Pompeo’s activities that Linick is known to have been pursuing when he was fired by President Donald Trump on Friday evening, in a letter to Congress explaining that the administration no longer had confidence in Linick. The inspector general was also looking into allegations Pompeo enlisted a political appointee to perform personal chores like picking up dry cleaning, NBC News previously reported.
“His office was investigating — at my request — Trump’s phony declaration of an emergency so he could send weapons to Saudi Arabia,” Engel said in a statement. “We don’t have the full picture yet, but it’s troubling that Secretary Pompeo wanted Mr. Linick pushed out before this work could be completed.”
Oh, okay. Wait, what’s that?
“It is not possible that this decision, or my recommendation rather, to the president rather, was based on any effort to retaliate for any investigation that was going on or is currently going on,” Pompeo said to the Washington Post on Monday. “Because I simply don’t know. I’m not briefed on it. I usually see these investigations in final draft form 24 hours, 48 hours before the IG is prepared to release them.
“So it’s simply not possible for this to be an act of retaliation. End of story,” he said.
“I went to the president and made clear to him that Inspector General Linick wasn’t performing a function in a way that we had tried to get him to, that was additive for the State Department, very consistent with what the statute says he’s supposed to be doing,” Pomepo said. “The kinds of activities he’s supposed to undertake to make us better, to improve us.
“I actually know how that works,” he added. “I had an IG at the CIA, not the IG that I had chosen but an IG that was there before me. He did fantastic work. He made us better. Linick wasn’t that.”
Engel is yapping about Trump’s 2019 emergency declaration that allowed the U.S. to send arms to Saudi Arabia without notifying Congress. Congressional lickspittles were butt hurt about the murder of pretend “journalist” but probable spy Jamal Khashoggi.
