Later this evening on Fox News, the so-called president of the United States, Donald Trump, will get what’s being billed as a “medical exam” during Tucker Carlson’s show, Business Insider reports:
Specifically, Siegel will ask Trump some questions and make a diagnosis based on what the president tells him, even though the good doctor has no credibility whatsoever:
“Siegel, an associate professor of medicine at NYU Langone, has spread coronavirus misinformation in the past. Like Trump, he has repeatedly pushed the unproven drug hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 treatment in Fox News interviews, and in March he falsely claimed that the disease was no worse than the flu.”
Sounds totally legit, huh? Twitter certainly thought so, and mockery ensued:
Speaking only for myself (though I’m quite certain others feel the same), there’s not any damn part of a Trump physical exam that should be shown on television at any time of the day. I’d just as soon watch maggots making a meal of a roadkill armadillo.
