This is the president explicitly telling Americans, en masse, to take a drug that may have serious effects for them, that hasn't been proven safe and effective for this use, and that is needed by others with serious illnesses for which it is proven.

By a doctor if the trial test proves effective by which is receiving great results.
These are prescription drugs NOT over the counter.  It's dangerous to obtain them on the internet or black market by which no one knows who made them or what's really in it.  This twisting of words / taking out of context are going to have people dying because fear will be associated with this nonsense once the FDA approves for normal dispensing by the doctor / pharmacist.

A thread on our month-long investigation:
 
1.  Trump team got clear warning Jan. 3 of outbreak in Wuhan; within days the virus was mentioned in Trump’s president’s daily brief.
 
2. HHS Sec Azar sought to brief Trump on Jan. 18, but Trump cut him off, lit into him about vaping issues before Azar could mention virus.
 
3. Task force spent early days consumed with travel bans, repatriating Americans, paying scant attention to testing or supplies problems that have become major crisis to U.S.
 
4. [NSC adviser Matt] Pottinger pushed in Jan. to block travel from Europe, but Mnuchin/others blocked him, citing concern for economy. Travel continued for weeks.
 
5. Problems at CDC lab so extensive that an FDA official blew up on a call, saying lab should be “shut down”
 
6. Officials at CDC/HHS/FDA have been derailed repeatedly by demands from Jared Kushner for ill-conceived corona projects.
 
7. In midst of corona crisis, Trump found time for at least 6 golf outings and 8 political rallies crammed with people.
 
8. GOP polling in March showed Trump’s base putting itself in real peril by ignoring warnings about virus spread. Republicans far more likely than Dems to ignore social distancing demands, etc.
 
9. U.S. now on course for more people to die from coronavirus than in wars of Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

“Right now Fauci is trying to roll out the most ambitious clinical trial ever implemented” of a vaccine to save the world while “getting calls from the White House or Jared’s team asking, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice to do this with Oracle?’”

“Spirit! are they yours?” Scrooge could say no more.

“They are Man's,” said the Spirit, looking down upon them. “And they cling to me, appealing from their fathers. This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. Beware them both, and all of their degree; but most of all beware this boy, for on his brow I see that written which is Doom, unless the writing be erased."

A vote-by-mail option in Nov?
 
“That’s premature. Around the world we’ve had people in new democracies go to vote when their lives were at risk because the right to vote was so precious.” —Sen. Lamar Alexander
 
I can remember when Lamar was a serious person.

A vote-by-mail option in Nov?

 Oregon’s vote-by-mail system a model for virus-proof elections

Updated Apr 01, 2020; Posted Mar 29, 2020

Oregonians virus-proofed their elections two decades ago, when they approved a ballot measure changing all elections in Oregon from traditional in-person voting to vote by mail. To keep democracy and voters safe from coronavirus, it's time for all other states to follow Oregon's lead and vote by mail.

In the face of this global pandemic, election administrators across the country are scrambling to make voting safe—some even delaying primary elections. And voters have been scrambling to figure out how they can vote safely, without exposing themselves to a room full of people and shared touch screens at polling places.

But not in Oregon– and Washington, Colorado, Utah, and Hawaii ­– where elections are proceeding safely and smoothly. All registered voters get a ballot in the mail, fill it out in the comfort of their own home, and either drop it back in the mail or bring it to a secure drop-off location.

As veterans of a successful, time-tested vote by mail system, Oregonians should be on the front lines, supporting national legislation and encouraging friends and family across the country to do the same. We know how it works here - Oregonians can help other Americans by sharing how smoothly it goes, how we vote in more elections and how we have time to make it all the way down the ballot to the local races. Explain to friends and family that we never wait in lines or miss work to exercise our right to vote, and we never worry about a machine deleting our vote.

Although these five states took a few years to work up to full vote by mail, the good news is that other states don't have to—they can ramp up quickly, using the methods we've already developed for securely mailing, tracking, verifying, and counting ballots. For example, Oregon’s elections are secure with digital signature files for every voter. Every ballot has a unique barcode so no one can duplicate a ballot and try to vote twice. Voters receive a text message alerting them that their ballot has been received and counted (or notified if there was a problem, so you can still fix it).

In response to the coronavirus threat, our own Sen. Ron Wyden has introduced a federal bill to move all 50 states to vote by mail, with Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. To protect November elections for everybody, Oregonians can tell voters around the country how much they love the ease and convenience of securely voting in their own homes. Vote by mail is an urgent measure as voters protect themselves from the coronavirus; it’s good for democracy, pandemic or no, because it makes it easier for everyone to vote.
