“I’m taking it – hydroxychloroquine,” the President told reporters during a roundtable with restaurant leaders in the White House’s State Dining Room.

He added: “I think it’s good. I’ve heard a lot of good stories. And, if it’s not good, I’ll tell you right, I’m not going to get hurt by it.”

The President’s insistence that we will absolutely not get hurt by it is telling. The only conclusion we can come to as a result of his statement is that Donald Trump is in fact an immortal.

The President added that he consulted with the White House physician before starting to take the drug. Dr. Sean Conley, the president’s physician, announced in a statement Monday night, “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.”

Well if Trump’s taking it, I’m taking it! When will it be available in vending machines?
