White House’s Kayleigh McEnany accuses Chris Cuomo of taking “less safe version” of Hydroxychloroquine for Covid as Cuomo criticizes Trump for taking it

On Tuesday’s Cuomo Prime Time, anchor Chris Cuomo argued that President Trump saying he was taking anti-malarial drug Hydroxychloroquine was a “distraction,” arguing not to focus on that, but instead focus on how to safely reopen the country.

But at Wednesday’s White House press briefing, Kayleigh McEnany addressed the remarks the anchor made Tuesday night, and she blasted him, given that he took what she described as a “less safe form,” by taking quinine to combat his coronavirus weeks prior.

McEnany began, “Well, Cuomo mocked the president for [taking this]. Hydroxychloroquine of course is an FDA approved medication with a long proven track record for safety, and it turns out that Chris Cuomo took a less safe version of it called quinine which the FDA removed from the market in 2006 because of its serious side effects including death. So really interesting to have that criticism of the president.”

Deadline reported CNN didn’t have a response to McEnany’s statement.

Although quinine was one of the supplements that Cristina Cuomo, the anchor’s wife, wrote that he had taken, it has not been proven to combat covid-19, either, much like Hydroxychloroquine.
