BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Dr. Oz, I don't get this. Let's reframe this, you’re ready? So the French say it works. The Chinese say it works. You are getting studies that show it works. You are trying to tell people in New York to test this. You said you were going to. Have you been able to get an answer if they are testing this or not? Do you think, perhaps, even though you don't know for sure, politics is playing a role in this? The fact that the president thought he could be optimistic on it. Did that actually bring politics into this and is this cure not moving forward because people don't like the president? 

DR. MEHMET OZ: You know, Brian, it's very hard to judge motivation. I can only judge action. And I know in New York state now you are not allowed to prescribe this medication to patients. I believe the reason Gov. [Andrew] Cuomo did that to protect patients who have lupus and rheumatoid arthritis because he was worried folks would hoard the medication. So you take people who definitely benefit and theoretically benefiting patients would just hoard it. So I don't know motivation.
