Calling mainstream doctors "fake doctors," Donald Trump, Jr retweeted a video of a Stella Immanuel, MD claiming that hydroxychloroquine is a 100% cure for COVID-19 and that mask-wearing is useless. The president and right-wing sites such as Brietbart are also pushing Immanuel's claims.
Here's a bit more you should know about Dr. Immanuel's scientific and medical claims:
Before Trump and his supporters embrace Immanuel’s medical expertise (too late), though, they should consider other medical claims Immanuel has made—including those about alien DNA and the physical effects of having sex with witches and demons in your dreams.
Immanuel, a pediatrician and a religious minister, has a history of making bizarre claims about medical topics and other issues. She has often claimed that gynecological problems like cysts and endometriosis are in fact caused by people having sex in their dreams with demons and witches.
She alleges alien DNA is currently used in medical treatments, and that scientists are cooking up a vaccine to prevent people from being religious. And, despite appearing in Washington, D.C. to lobby Congress on Monday, she has said that the government is run in part not by humans but by “reptilians” and other aliens.
According to the Daily Beast, Immanuel spoke at an event organized by a group called Tea Party Patriots, which is funded by wealthy conservative donors.
For those keeping score, while humping for Dr. Immanuel yesterday, the president also retweeted anti-Fauci claims.
