SEAN HANNITY (HOST): You can always count on one thing from the media -- even in the middle of a national emergency, worldwide pandemic, yes, they will not stop their engagement and never-ending smear campaign and attacks against the president. It's clear, they have a political agenda. Sadly, their hatred of the president seemingly more important than anything else in the world even at moments like this, which is why they continue to claim that a potentially life-saving treatment, hydroxychloroquine, they are telling the American people it is dangerous and it is reckless and that the president talks about it. Now, because the president touted its benefits -- well, they are now on a mission to seek and to destroy. Well, we have one of the preeminent experts now that has spoken out about it -- Dr. Oz will explain in a minute -- but take a look at what's being said.
Now, despite of what you've just heard, the preeminent expert on this single subject is saying just the opposite. His name, Dr. Daniel Wallace. He is a renowned, board-certified rheumatologist practicing at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Took over the largest practice in the country. He has over 2,000 patients he's taking care of today. He has authored over 400 peer-reviewed papers and he inherited the largest lupus practice. By the way, those 2,000 patients, the majority of which, well, they are now getting and being treated with hydroxychloroquine. In a recent letter to the FDA, Dr. Wallace states, quote, “hydroxychloroquine is a very safe drug. It has been given to tens of millions of individuals in the world since its approval 65 years ago in 1955 -- [VIDEO GAP] -- has ever been hospitalized for a complication.
I'm not a doctor. I'm just telling you what the experts are saying and that is if you're going to consider this, talk to your own doctor. As for the media, what they're saying is contradicted by somebody that has, well, been dispensing this drug and prescribing this drug for a long time. I guess you could trust, I guess, the media people like Dr. Wolf Blitzer or Dr. Humpty Dumpty or world-renowned rheumatologist with decades of experience, but you get to decide.
