House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) decided to chime in on President Donald Trump's decision to take Hydroxychloroquine, which has been said to be a potential treatment for the Wuhan coronavirus. 

"As far as the president is concerned, he's our president and I'd rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group, morbidly obese," the speaker said. "So, I think it's not a good idea."

According to President Trump's physician, Dr. Sean Conley, "the president is in very good health and has remained symptom-free. He receives regular COVID-19 testing, all negative to date." After discussing the pros and cons of Trump taking Hydroxychloroquine, the two decided "the potential benefit from treatment outweighed the relative risks," Conley said in a memo in a memo on Monday. 

President Trump isn't the first politician to take Hydroxychloroquine. In fact, Michigan State Representative Karen Whitsett credited the drug with saving her life when she contracted the virus. She made it very clear that if President Trump had not talked about Hydroxychloroquine being a potential treatment that it wouldn't be accessible to those who contract the coronavirus.

Is Nancy mad that Trump is taking a drug that isn't considered 100 percent safe? Or is she upset that he's taking preventative measures? It seems like she wouldn't want him to take the drug, even if he wasn't classified as "morbidly obese."
