Michigan Gov. Whitmer(D) reverses course, now asking feds for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine

Detroit Metro Times: Gov. Gretchen Whitmer drew fire from some on the right after the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) sent a letter last week threatening “administrative action” against doctors who prescribed two experimental drugs that could potentially help coronavirus patients.

The Whitmer administration has since removed the language threatening doctors from the letter and is now asking the federal government to send shipments of the drugs, Bridge magazine reports. The Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency authorization for the antimalarial drugs hydroxychloroquine sulfate and chloroquine phosphate on Saturday.

Conservatives including Charlie Kirk and Rudy Guiliani accused Whitmer of risking lives to oppose President Donald Trump. In recent weeks, Whitmer and Trump have been sparring on national television over federal aid for Michigan, while Trump has touted the drugs’ potential in treating COVID-19.

But apparently, Michigan’s “ban” on the drugs to treat coronavirus patients was all just a matter of miscommunication.

Days after LARA issued its first letter, The Detroit News published an op-ed that criticized the Whitmer administration’s prohibition of the drugs.

“Not only is our state’s top leader threatening the selfless health care workers who are on the frontline trying to save lives, but she’s denying possible life-saving medications to actual COVID-19 victims,” the op-ed said. read more

  1. Is there a liberal on the planet who is honorable enough to admit a personal error in judgement? Or are they all amoral?

  2. The Detroit News comment section has been overtaken by liberal trolls. It’s always the same group of idiots everyday on every article. I don’t even go beyond the article anymore. Same with the Hill. How that rag gets called a conservative leaning site is mind boggling. As for Witless, I think dem consultants told her she needed to change her stance if she wanted to buttkiss her way to a possible VP choice. She’s not smart enough to take intelligent positions on her own.

    “Or are they all amoral?”

    …yes. It’s kind of in the job description…

    “28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
    Romans 1:28-32

    …seems as good a description of a Democrat as any…
