Chiding Trump for taking hydroxychloroquine, Pelosi appears to fat shame president

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi expresses her disapproval of US President Donald Trump’s declaration that he’s taking the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine to protect against the new coronavirus, despite warnings from his own government that it should only be administered for COVID-19 in a hospital or research setting due to potentially fatal side effects.

“He’s our president and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group — morbidly obese, they say,” Pelosi tells CNN.
