Tap three times if you want Ivermectin

Clamoring for ivermectin, some turn to a pro-Trump telemedicine website

Much as the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine became an unproven remedy for Covid deniers, ivermectin has emerged in recent weeks as a new false cure.

There’s a lot of weak-brained people out there and a lot of grifters who are making serious coin off of them.

When users visit the telemedicine website SpeakWithAnMD.com, they are immediately hit with a warning: “Due to overwhelming demand, we are experiencing longer than usual wait times.”

The demand is for ivermectin, a drug primarily used to deworm animals that has become the latest false cure for Covid-19. And the website, in partnership with the organization America’s Frontline Doctors, whose founder stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, has become well-known in the Facebook groups and Reddit communities where anti-vaccination sentiment thrives.

I guess we should have seen this coming: the “doctor” pushing livestock dewormer also participated in The Stupid Coup.

    I’m cool with a bunch of violent insurrectionists destroying their innards with quack medicine. Their civil war will be a messy shitshow, literally.

    Can we take up a GoFundMe to buy them pails of apple flavored horse paste? I’m in for 20 Ameros.

      Does it have to be “apple flavored”? Seems like a waste of apple flavoring. I’ll bet adding it to some high octane moonshine would be a real winner. I’m in.
      I’ve NEVER been so apathetic to a group of, “people?” Except for the ‘chillins.’

    It’s just about time to pull out the old finishing phrase used by me when things get this hair-balled up and it goes like this: Well, fuck it all!

    It comes in a pill version as I understand it.
