Why? Just… why?
CNN’s Don Lemon doubled down Thursday evening on his network’s claim that podcast host Joe Rogan took “horse dewormer.”
Speaking to CNN medical expert Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Lemon said, “It is not a lie to say that [Ivermectin] is used as a horse dewormer. I think that’s important. And it is not approved for COVID.”
“Correct, that is correct and it is not approved for COVID,” Gupta responded, adding, “But you know, there’s still a few ongoing trials around Ivermectin. But if you look at the data, there is no evidence that it really works [against COVID] here.”
As reported by The Daily Wire on Thursday, Rogan confronted Gupta over CNN “lying” about him with regard to the host taking Ivermectin when he got COVID.
Rogan took the medicine after it was prescribed to him by his doctor, and he recovered from the virus in five days. The host made it a point to emphasize that he did not take “horse dewormer,” but a drug that has been used by millions, if not billions of people, though largely to treat internal waterborne parasites.
