My body, my choice has long been championed by leftist pro-abortion advocates. They claim that the government has no control over what someone will do with their body. Something conservatives and liberals can both agree on is that the government has no say in what someone chooses to do with their own body. Keyword: own.
President Trump Taking Hydroxychloroquine
If “my body, my choice” is so important to the left, as they claim it is, then why is it when President Trump says he is taking hydroxychloroquine for his health, liberals are saying he shouldn’t be taking it? It’s his own body, right? So why can’t he do what he wants with his own body?
The left is upset Trump is taking this medication as a preventative measure against COVID-19 because the FDA hasn’t yet approved it as a successful drug to combat the virus. President Trump and his doctor carefully considered and weighed the pros and cons for him to take this drug. A doctor will only prescribe a medication if they feel the benefit of the drug is greater than the possible risks. The President and his doctor came to that conclusion, if they hadn’t, he wouldn’t be taking it. It’s that simple.
The Left’s Response
Even though the President and his doctor came to the thoughtful decision, many people on the left were quick to shout their disapproval and “concern” of the medical decision President Trump made for his health. Watch below what Nancy Pelosi had to say.
Recently, Stephen Colbert said this on his show, “No matter what side you are on, we have to protect the President.” Are you kidding? If protecting the President is so important to the Democrats, then why have they been silent on the countless threats against the President? Even the ones from celebrities like Snoop Dogg and Kathy Griffin? What about when Madonna said, “I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” If the President’s safety is such a concern to the left, then why didn’t they say anything and demand Madonna be investigated? Or cancel Snoop Dogg, Kathy Griffin, and all the others?
Stephen Colbert also called out a tweet President Trump made on January 24 praising China for their handling of the coronavirus and their transparency. But guess what? Things change. More facts come out over time through investigation to give more information and understanding of what’s happening. Kind of like how it seemed Obama was “scandal-free”, as he and the Democrats claimed, but more evidence and information has come out about his involvement with unmasking former national security advisor, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. #obamagate
At the time, China’s deception was unknown, so, forgive the President for a statement he made with his initial understanding vs. what he knows now.
There is nothing he can do right. He could literally cure cancer and the left would scream, “How dare you! We wanted cancer!”
The left is so blind to their own hypocrisy, it’s actually amusing.
