Democrats Plan To Censure Lawmaker Who Said Trump’s Boosting Of Hydroxychloroquine ‘Saved My Life’
Democrats plan to censure Michigan lawmaker who said Trump’s boosting of hydroxychloroquine ‘saved my life.’
The resolution states, according to a copy obtained by The Detroit News, that Whitsett “has repeatedly and publicly praised the president’s delayed and misguided COVID-19 response efforts in contradiction with the scientifically based and action-oriented response” from Michigan’s Democratic leadership, “endangering the health, safety, and welfare of her constituents, the city of Detroit and the state of Michigan.”
Democrats in Michigan will vote on Saturday to censure Rep. Karen Whitsett for “endangering the health, safety and welfare of her constituents, the city of Detroit and the state of Michigan.”

Democrats in Michigan will vote on Saturday to censure one of their colleagues who praised President Trump for advocating the use of an anti-malarial drug that she claimed cured her of COVID-19.
The 13th Congressional District Democratic Party Organization argues that state Rep. Karen Whitsett, D-Detroit, broke protocol by meeting with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence during an April 14 meeting of coronavirus survivors and for crediting hydroxychloroquine with saving her life.
Whitsett first made the claim that hydroxychloroquine – a commonly prescribed anti-malarial drug – saved her life during an appearance on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” earlier this month. She said that if it weren’t for Trump pushing the drug through the Food and Drug Administration’s approval process for off-label use and touting it repeatedly during his daily press briefings, she may not have survived the disease.

Very sad that her own party goes after her like a pack of wolves. You would think they would be happy she is alive rather than vote to censure her. @GovWhitmer is that leadership happening in front of you? Where was your appreciation that she didn’t die?

Obviously Black Lives who get cured by Hydroxychloroquine and who thank President Trump for informing them about it doesn’t matter to Democrats.
This just illustrates the sad state of humanity. You got treatment and lived but we will make you sorry you did. What is wrong with people.
