Evidence that a Trumpism strain is alive and well within the Conservative Party.

Witness this humdinger of an interview by Sarnia-Lampton MP and current Conservative Party leadership contender Marilyn Gladu. Apparently we should be following the lead of President Trump:

Sarnia-Lambton’s MP wants Canada to implement COVID-19 cures she says have been proven in the United States… “In the United States they’ve been successful with the treatment of hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin and zinc sulfate,” said Gladu. “They’ve tried this on thousands of COVID patients, with nearly 100 per cent recovery rate, and so the FDA has approved this as an emergency measure, but Canada has not.”

A 100% recovery rate?? How could that be true? Really Marilyn? Where in the world did you get THAT claim from? I’m not even sure Trump has claimed that.

The local Sarnia Chief of Staff immediately put that to rest:

Bluewater Health Chief of Staff Dr. Michel Haddad said there hasn’t been any evidence to show that hydroxychloroquine has been helpful in prevention or treatment of COVID-19 “There’s a lot of talk out there about different treatments,” said Haddad. “There’s no single agent that actually kills this virus. The Tamiflu we use for influenza is non-effective. We have been using cocktails of antibiotics, without real evidence to be honest with you.” Haddad said he’s seen patients die and survive after using hydroxychloroquine.

I had hoped our Conservatives would be resisting the incompetence and ignorance coming out of Donald Trump’s mouth, but between this and Andrew Scheer stating in his press conference he wasn’t sure we should be following the advice of the World Health Organization, It appears that hope might be in vain.

If they think they’re going to get Canadians support by being a parrot of Donald Trump, they’re going to have a nasty reality check.
