Joe Biden's potential VP candidate, Amy Klobuchar, was caught in quite the contradiction this week when it was revealed that she admitted, reluctantly, that her husband may have taken the controversial hydroxychloroquine while stricken with the coronavirus.
Klobuchar was also caught criticizing President Donald Trump after he suggested that he's taken it as well.
On one hand, Klobuchar suggested that her own husband might have taken it, then on the other hand she's lashing out at the president in public stating that the product might cause hallucinations - which seemingly contradict her beliefs on it.
But she claims science is what you must follow, as she said in her interview on Sirius XM, which was identified and the audio recorded and posted for all. The interview was with Michael Smerconish, and here's an excerpt:
Smerconish: Has it influenced your thought process relative to the discussion or debate about hydroxychloroquine?
Klobuchar: Well, I think that I listen to the science there. I believe he did briefly take that drug, I’d have to check with his doctors, because of course I wasn’t there. But I think that — or some drug like it — but I think that we have to listen to the science and you have to listen to your doctors, [about] what is going to work in each individual situation. Sometimes you might have other conditions that make it so you can’t take certain drugs, sometimes your own condition with the virus wouldn’t demand that, and so I think people have to look at what works. And I just believe in science, something this president has been not listening to.
After all the controversy surrounding the treatment, there are mixed stories on each side and there's only one part that Klobuchar got right - listen to the science.
Not every treatment works for everyone.
But if Klobuchar's husband really used it, and it helped him recover, then why is she insulting the president over the very same thing?
