Actress and Joe Biden supporter Alyssa Milano is spreading the conspiracy theory that Trump is promoting hydroxychloroquine for "personal gain."
Milano retweeted an unverified claim that Trump has a financial intereste in Sonafi, a French drugmaker that happens to make hydroxychloroquine.
The only problem with Milano's conspiracy theory?
Sonafi is not the exclusive maker of hydroxychloroquine.
And Sonafi happens to produce other drugs.
Furthermore, the Trump family doesn't actually own stock in Sonafi.
Rather, the Trump family has invested in a Dodge & Cox mutual fund that has shares of stocks in multiple companies, one of which just happens to be Sonafi.
To say that Trump has a personal interest in hydroxychloroquine is definitely a stretch… other than the fact that he wants to help protect Americans.
More details on Milano's call for a second impeachment below:
While Alyssa Milano claims that Trump is only promoting hydroxychloroquine for personal gain, an international survey of over 6,000 doctors from 30 countries finds that the anti-malarial drug is the therapy treatment of choice for most physicians.
Yet, that didn't stop on Milano for suggesting that Trump should be the first president to be impeached twice.
Breitbart has more details on Milano's offensive comments:
Actress and left-wing activist Alyssa Milano floated a New York Times report that suggests the president is promoting hydroxychloroquine as a potential treatment for the coronavirus for financial gain as grounds for his impeachment.
“Trump can make history as the first President to be impeached twice. I mean, if putting lives in danger by pushing a drug for personal gain during a pandemic isn’t impeachmable, we should just throw in the towel,” the Charmed actress said.
Milano’s declaration follows a Times report on the general divide over the effectiveness of the anti-malaria medicine hydroxychloroquine in treating coronavirus patients. President Trump has touted the treatment, which the Times admitted has not been totally unwarranted.
“Mr. Trump may ultimately be right, and physicians report anecdotal evidence that has provided hope,” the Times wrote before subtly suggesting that the president may have ulterior motives.
“If hydroxychloroquine becomes an accepted treatment, several pharmaceutical companies stand to profit, including shareholders and senior executives with connections to the president,” the Times piece states, adding that Trump has “a small personal financial interest in Sanofi, the French drugmaker that makes Plaquenil, the brand-name version of hydroxychloroquine.”
However, an analysis from MarketWatch found that Trump’s stake could be as little as $99.
If the analysis from MarketWatch is correct, will Milano apologize to President Trump for the disparaging comments?
As a billionnaire, it is unlikely that a $99 stake in a company would be a make or break investment for Trump.
And if his investment is truly only $99, then he would have no reason to even attempt to promote the drug for financial gain.
Furthermore, Trump has put aside all politics to focus on the advice of his advisors.
He's allowed Vice President Pence and the task force to help guide and shape the COVID-19 response.
Alyssa Milano has been under fire recently for ignoring the sexual assault claims against Joe Biden.
While Alyssa Milano has been bashing President Trump during the COVID-19 pandemic, many have called her out for her #MeToo hypocrisy.
Rose McGowen even called Milano a "fraud" for continuing to support former vice president Joe Biden.
Fox News has more details on McGowen's evisceration of Milano:
Actress-turned-activist Rose McGowen eviscerated her former "Charmed" co-star Alyssa Milano for her continued support for former Vice President Joe Biden amid a newly surfaced sexual assault accusation.
Milano, who was an outspoken advocate for the #MeToo movement and a celebrity endorser of the Democratic front-runner, addressed her "silence" on the 1993 assault allegation made Tara Reade, a former staffer for the then-senator who came forward with her assault claim last month.
"I had not publicly said anything about this- if you remember, it kind of took me a long time to say anything about Harvey [Weinstein] as well -- because I believe that even though we should believe women... but that does not mean at the expense of giving men their due process and investigating situations," Milano said during a radio interview on Monday. "It's got to be fair in both directions."
Milano then pointed to a report about how the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund chose not to take up Reade's case as part of her reasoning to support Biden, although she didn't disclose to radio host Andy Cohen that the reasoning behind the organization's decision was because it did not want to jeopardize its nonprofit status while going after a presidential candidate.
"I just don't feel comfortable throwing away a decent man that I've known for 15 years in this time of complete chaos without there being a thorough investigation and I'm sure that the mainstream media would be jumping all over this... if they found more evidence through their investigation. So I'm just sort of staying quiet about it," Milano explained.
The "Charmed" actress, who was a vocal advocate against the Supreme Court nomination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh after he was accused of sexual misconduct, dismissed those calling her "hypocritical" by what Cohen called "Bernie Bros," a term she agreed with.
"We're destroying lives if we publicly don't go through the right steps in order to find out if an accusation is credible or not," Milano added.
McGowan, a victim of disgraced film mogul and convicted sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, blasted Milano for her inconsistent advocacy.
"You are a fraud," McGowan reacted. "This is about holding the media accountable. You go after Trump & Kavanaugh saying Believe Victims, you are a lie. You have always been a lie. The corrupt DNC is in on the smear job of Tara Reade, so are you. SHAME."
Milano has repeatedly attempted to defend her support for accused sexual predator Joe Biden.
However, it appears that social media users and even her "friends" in Hollywood are beginning to grow tired of Milano's antics.
If McGowen's comments are any indication, the backlash against Milano appears to be growing.
Perhaps instead of bashing a president trying to protect the nation in times of crisis, Milano should evaluate her own priorities and philosophies.
