My guess is that Trump is taking it, or at least claiming to, because there's little downside for him right now. He's not currently sick, and so he can claim the drug helps him in an effort to prove he was right all along and to "own the libs," which at this point seems like the GOP's main campaign strategy.The VA tried using the drug on COVID cases and it was associated with higher morality than those who didn't receive the drug.
And again for everyone, not a single study has demonstrated a benefit.
It is no more than a placebo at this point for COVID (although that has some small value in itself), until a proper study demonstrates otherwise.
If he gets sick, no doubt he'll just make up some other lie, like he missed a dose one day or some other bullshit. But I doubt he's thinking that far ahead.
