NBC “Late Night” host Seth Meyers stooped to a new low on Wednesday night when he compared President Donald Trump to a drug dealer simply because he has been promoting the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a cure for coronavirus.
“It’s clear that because he ignored repeated warnings about this horrific situation, Trump is now hoping there’s a miracle cure that will get him off the hook,” Meyers said during his show before showing a clip of the president talking about the drug at a recent press briefing.

“My god, is anyone else creeped out by his tone of voice?” added Meyers. “I feel like he just pulled up in a window-less white van across from a high school. ‘Hey kid, I’ve got some hydroxychloroquine that’ll make you feel sky high!’”
Meyers tried to make President Trump look bad for promoting hydroxychloroquine despite the fact that countless doctors have agreed that it really does help cure COVID-19. “I’m trying to save lives,” Trump recently said. “If it doesn’t work, it’s nothing lost by doing it.” Even New York’s Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo has admitted this week that hydroxychloroquine has been “anecdotally” positive for patients with the coronavirus.
“There are a lot of people who are relying on this, who were relying on it. People with lupus, etc. The tests in the hospital, they won’t say that they are… they’re too short a period of time to get a scientific report. You know, hospital administrators, doctors, want to give… have a significant data set before they give a formal opinion,” Cuomo said on Monday. “Anecdotally, you’ll get suggestions that it has been effective, but we don’t have any official data yet from a hospital, or a quote unquote study, which will take weeks if not months before you get an official study.”
This shows once again that late night hosts like Meyers don’t care about the truth and will use absolutely anything that will attack Trump. It’s sickening that Meyers is more interested in making the president look bad than he is in the fact that hydroxychloroquine might actually be saving lives. In the end, Meyers and his fellow Democrats would rather see our country succumb to coronavirus than see Trump defeat it.
