If you thought you could count on Neil Cavuto to keep his mouth shut about things he doesn’t know anything about, you were wrong.
Cavuto earned his place in the “Five Worst Hosts on Fox” when I awarded those honors last June. Since then there have been some departures (sayonara, Shep!) and some additions (Leland the Smirking Lizard!) to the list, but Cavuto continues to hold his own as a Fake Conservative who never misses a chance to snipe at President Trump.
This week, he has been spouting the Fake News narrative that President Trump is endangering America because he announced he is taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure since he has been in proximity to people who had contracted COVID-19.
In case you don’t know, hydroxy-etc. is one of the drugs being suggested as an effective therapeutic for coronavirus.
It is a drug that has been around for decades and has been employed successfully against lupus and other diseases. There are some known side effects and some patients considered at high risk for those side effects, but meanwhile the drug has been a lifesaver for many people.
Cavuto joined a host of liberal thought police in condemning the president for taking hydroxy-etc. after consulting with the White House physician.
Cavuto told his viewers:
“If you are taking this as a preventative treatment to ward off the virus, or in a worst-case scenario you are dealing with the virus and you are in this vulnerable population, it will kill you. I cannot stress that enough. This will kill you.”
Whoa! Hold on! Does that mean that Cavuto is practicing medicine without a license? Does he think people should ever take medicine without consulting their doctor? And just what qualifies him to get in between the president and his doctor? Isn’t one of the liberal mantras that abortion should be a decision between a woman and her doctor? Shouldn’t that be even more true when the medical decision doesn’t involve the murder of an innocent third person?
President Trump called out Cavuto on Twitter and said he is looking for an alternative to the increasingly liberal Fox News:
Clearly, liberalism is a mental disorder, and clearly Neil Cavuto suffers from it! Fox News should dump his ass along with Leland Vittert and Chris Wallace. If we wanted to watch Fake News, we would turn on CNN!
