POLITICO's Pulse Check

Groundhog Day, Hydroxychloroquine-Style

Episode Notes

On March 27th, host Dan Diamond and POLITICO's Sarah Owermohle wrote a story together about how hydroxychloroquine was dividing President Trump and his health officials. Four months later ... they're reporting the same story. Déjà vu, anyone? Dan talks with Sarah and Dispatch's Jeremy Siegel about why Trump keeps repeating himself — despite mounting evidence that says the drug is ineffective as a coronavirus treatment.
