(TNS) To Democrats and those in the Leftist media who continually advance their agenda, ‘saving even one life’ matters when it comes to imposing new gun control measures. And smoking.
But not when it comes to coronavirus, apparently.

Increasingly, doctors around the country are using an old antimalarial medication, hydroxychloroquine, to successfully treat COVID-19 patients, yet Democrats and the establishment media continue to downplay and even ridicule its use simply because the ‘bad orange man’ has supported it.
We have another success story, this one from a physician in Texas City, Texas, who says it has helped patients in the one demographic — the elderly — in which the virus most adversely affects.
Per the Houston Chronicle:
The medical director at a Texas City nursing home says some COVID-19 patients on an unproven drug are showing signs of improvement and that heâ€™s prescribed it to another dozen patients.
Dr. Robin Armstrong said the first group of nine patients at The Resort at Texas City â€” where 56 residents and employees have tested positive for the disease â€” finished their five-day treatment with the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine on Wednesday and are stable.
â€œIt seems like the patients are maintaining pretty steady and not having any difficulty, so thatâ€™s good,â€ Armstrong said, though he added that he canâ€™t determine how much their improvement is attributable to the drug. â€œThey seem to be getting better â€¦ We’re just continuing to monitor them.â€
None of their respiratory problems have grown more severe, Armstrong said, addressing one of the most serious complications of the virus.
Armstrong is now expanding the number of patients he will administer the drug to from 27 to 39. And he continues to prescribe it after having conversations with the patients themselves, but no the families because he says that is far too time-consuming.
â€œIf I had to call all the families for every medicine that I started on a patient, I wouldnâ€™t be treating any patients at all; I would just be talking to families all the time,â€ Armstrong said.
Meanwhile, the worthless American ‘mainstream’ media continues to pooh-pooh this drug and its potential as a means of bashing the president, regardless of the results.
CNN: “President Trump is wrong in so many ways about hydroxychloroquine studies. Here are the facts.” — Can anyone remember the last time CNN published ‘facts’ about anything subject having anything at all to do with Donald Trump? Neither can we.
The Washington Post: “For Fox News hosts, the hydroxychloroquine controversy is fuel for the culture war.” — The Post, which has been so wrong on practically everything having to do with the president and his administration, couldn’t resist taking a dig at the No. 1 cable news outlet while also bashing Trump and hydroxychloroquine. And by the way, hydroxychloroquine use is only “controversial” because these media sycophants have declared it so.
The Verge: “Trumpâ€™s chloroquine hype is a misinformation problem bigger than social media.” We checked and there are no medical researchers or patients who have been given the drug and recovered involved in the writing of this story. We did find this line in the story, though: “Thereâ€™s been a study withÂ tentatively positive resultsÂ (and some serious limitations), but alsoÂ aÂ fewÂ studies that show little to no therapeutic effect.”
Hey — ‘even if one life is saved’ … right?
The New Republic: “How Hydroxychloroquine Became Conservative Mediaâ€™s Coronavirus Miracle Drug.” Right. It’s a “conservative media drug.” Can you say “lame?”

You get the drift. The Left-wing media is now working overtime, hand-in-hand with their Democrat masters, to kill more Americans by proclaiming that a drug which could help them survive is too ‘controversial’ to use despite the evidence to the contrary … because ‘Orange Man’ likes it.
These people really are enemies of the state.
