Rand Paul: Doctors Won’t Study Ivermectin Because They Hate Trump

There is one really good way for people to either avoid COVID or minimize the risks once contracted; getting vaccinated. For a variety of reasons, however, Conservatives lawmakers and media members have been resistant to push vaccines.

WASHINGTON, DC – OCTOBER 12: Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) speaks during a press conference regarding the executive order President Donald Trump signed earlier on Thursday, on Capitol Hill, October 12, 2017 in Washington, DC. The executive order is intended for small businesses, and potentially individuals to be able to band together to get insurance in smaller groups, possibly across state lines.

Instead, Republicans seem to be focused on drugs to take once their people get the virus. First they pushed hydroxychloroquine, which proved to do next to nothing. Now Conservatives are pushing Ivermectin, a drug the CDC is warning people not to take.

Scientists, according to Rand Paul, aren’t telling people not to take the drug because it isn’t safe. The Kentucky senator says they’re doing it because they hate Donald Trump.

Paul told the Cincinnati Enquirer:

“The hatred for Trump deranged these people so much that they’re unwilling to objectively study it. So someone like me that’s in the middle on it, I can’t tell you because they will not study ivermectin. They will not study hydroxychloroquine without the taint of their hatred for Donald Trump.”

This is kind of an odd take. For all the non-effective treatments that Trump has recommended for COVID, Ivermectin has not been one of them. Scientists are more likely to put their energy into things that could help prevent getting COVID, like vaccines.
