As if we needed more proof of TDS in the mainstream media. NBC News decided to take a story about an elderly couple drinking fish tank cleaner and frame it to prove President Donald Trump is dangerous.

During a press conference, Trump spoke about studies that showed chloroquine (generic name hydroxychloroquine) treated coronavirus.

So this elderly couple in Arizona thought the additive chloroquine phosphate in fish tank cleaner was the same thing.

They proceeded to drink the fish tank cleaner.

The man died. The woman is in ICU.

Instead of using the story as a warning not to drink fish tank cleaner NBC News used it as a way to fault Trump.

Aquarium Store Depot sells chloroquine phosphate, describing it as a “wonder drug” for those who have aquariums:

The drug of choice for many public aquariums including the Georgia Aquarium. It has been widely used by hobbyists in the early days of the marine aquarium hobby and used in the aquaculture industry since the 70s and 80s. It is typically unavailable to the majority of the reefing community due to it normally being available only through a Veterinarian via a prescription. I feel your pain if you are like me and tried to get Chloroquine phosphate from a veterinarian. It is difficult to obtain, so I have worked with a national laboratory to obtain a 99% pure Cholorquine Phosphate solution that is suitable for disease treatment.

This form of chloroquine phosphate is specifically for aquariums.

Also, why do adults need to be told NOT to drink fish tank cleaner? If Trump mentioned a chemical in roach killer that could cure my rheumatoid arthritis guess what I will NOT do? Drink a can of roach killer!

But anyway I saw NO pushback from NBC News.

Trump mentioned chloroquine touted in a French study that found it could potentially be used to treat coronavirus. He also mentioned that it is a prescription drug and that the FDA has to fast track it to be available for coronavirus.

I honestly don’t know where he said, “If you find anything with the name chloroquine then take it immediately!” I also don’t remember him saying that it is the end-all cure for the virus.

That has not stopped the media from blaming Trump and making it seem like the elderly couple took the actual medicine he mentioned.
