A Houston doctor who praises hydroxychloroquine and says that face
masks aren’t necessary to stop transmission of the highly
contagious coronavirus has become a star on the right-wing
internet, garnering tens of millions of views on Facebook on
Monday alone. Donald Trump Jr. declared the video of Stella
Immanuel a “must watch,” while Donald Trump himself retweeted the
Immanuel, a pediatrician and a religious minister, has a history
of making bizarre claims about medical topics and other issues.
She has often claimed that gynecological problems like cysts and
endometriosis are in fact caused by people having sex in their
dreams with demons and witches. She alleges alien DNA is currently
used in medical treatments, and that scientists are cooking up a
vaccine to prevent people from being religious. And, despite
appearing in Washington, D.C. to lobby Congress on Monday, she has
said that the government is run in part not by humans but by
“reptilians” and other aliens.
She’s an absolute kook, as nutty as a squirrel turd. And the president of the United States is promoting her “medical” advice for the worst pandemic in a century. Which means he is a mentally deranged kook. Yes, that’s terrifying, but it’s obviously true.
