Kayleigh McEnany, the newly appointed White House press secretary, openly scrutinized CNN’s Chris Cuomo and his public statement about the President.

During a press briefing on May 18, a reporter mentioned that Cuomo had criticized Trump for taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure.

Then, the reporter alleged that the American Nurses Association said they have not received reports from nurses taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative treatment for COVID-19.

McEnany immediately pointed out that Henry Ford Hospital is doing a study with 3,000 front-line workers taking hydroxychloroquine and that Tampa General Hospital is doing the same test.

“Hydroxychloroquine has been a drug in use for 65 years for lupus, arthritis, and malaria. It has a very good safety profile but as with any drug and any prescription, it should be given by a doctor to a patient in that context, so no one should be taking this without a prescription from their doctor,” McEnany said.

“You had Chris Cuomo saying the president knows hydroxychloroquine is not supported by science. He knows it has been flagged by his own people and is using it. Well, Cuomo mocked the president for this and interestingly, I found this out just before coming here, hydroxychloroquine, of course, is FDA approved medication with a long proven track record for safety. It turns out, Chris Cuomo took a less safe version of it called quinine, which the FDA removed from the market in 2006 because of its serious side effects including death,” she said.

“So, really interesting to have that criticism of the president on that note to Chris Cuomo, I would like to redirect him to his brother, the governor of New York, Governor Cuomo, who has several on the record statements about hydroxychloroquine saying, ‘I’m an optimist, I’m hopeful about the drug and that’s why we’ll try here in New York as soon as we get it. There has been anecdotal evidence that it’s promising, that’s why we are going ahead.’ I have about eight other quotes from Governor Cuomo should any of you have interest in it,” McEnany concluded.

Then, she went after the media for pushing bizarrely over-hyped doom-and-gloom coverage over hydroxychloroquine, a drug that has been around for over 50 years and is approved by the FDA.

McEnany was referring to a blog post that Cuomo’s wife’s wrote while Chris was quarantined last month after testing positive for the coronavirus.

In her blog post, she wrote that Chris was taking potentized quinine, which is a synthetic derivative of chloroquine. In other words, he was essentially taking a less-than-safe version of hydroxychloroquine.
