Hydroxychloriquine has proved ineffective as a treatment for covid-19. In fact, it has had dire side effects in some cases. And yet Trump has been desperately selling it to his hapless followers.

The contractors were hired to burnish Verma’s personal brand and provide ‘strategic communications’ support.”
