President Trump last night was letting his thoughts be known about the FDA throwing up the latest roadblock in finding a cure for the China virus. This is the same bureaucratic bullshit that got Hydroxychloroquine banned, and doomed thousands to an early death. So CNBC right on cue brings on their ‘expert’ to explain why Trump is crazy. The expert is former FDA head Scott Gottlieb.
During the interview it comes out (they think nothing of it) that Gottlieb went straight from regulating pharmaceutical companies (Illumina and Pfizer) to sitting on their Board of Directors! Nobody sees a conflict of interest with that?? Its like all the Congressmen over all the decades who went straight from government to lobbyist! Good God, and we’re supposed to believe there’s not a financial interest with the current FDA head?
That maybe if he makes sure the cheap 70 year old malaria drug gets banned (to the financial benefit of the makers of Remdesivir), that he’ll get some cushy board positions when he leaves “government service”. Remdesvir at $3,100 a patient versus $1 a pill for Hydroxychloroquine, is much more attractive. Believe it or not.
When did graft and corruption become okay?
