One attorney General Bill Barr tested negative stomach negative with his testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee joining us now with quarantine with more Texas, Governor Louie Gohmert, at like everybody else, the worst pandemic since one thousand nine hundred and eighteen China lied to the world. All the models were wrong and im, not blaming them here or there is a lot we didnt know. First, how are you feeling? I feel sorry for anyone who is going through this and has gotten his? What are your plans now? Well, I feel okay im a little tired, but with all the symptoms of Covid 19 come, I didnt have any of them,
and so the first test, the quick one at the executive office building weve had a lot of, and it came out positive. If I was the president dont, you love it. He called me afterwards on the way home tonight and he said, come I told him, Mr President, had you not invited me to go wit you to West Texas Come, I would have never known, I had the coronavirus, and that is when I got tested for it and I found out. I had it and so the last minute protection for him, but it is amazing. I got a tiny little taste what you and the President get every day the left went, nuts. They are saying. Oh I contaminate them. I havent been to the gym in months they said I paraded staff by not wearing a mask and that is a lie, lie so a little bit a taste of what
the president gets all the time, but nobody gets more than the president youve been a good friend Sean. Thank you. I care about everyone, and we dont want anybody to get this. When I say to protect older people where the mask I meant it, and hopefully football and baseball by the way there is a Hannity football over your shoulder. Thank you for putting that you remember those have you thought about, based on all that you have learned in consultation. Obviously, with your doctor, the Ford Study, the one that they studied, that said, Hydroxychloroquine, zinc and Azithromycin was detracted or Daniel, Wallace, the 42 year old cyanide. That knows more about Hydroxychloroquine than anybody. Have you thought about any of these or talk to your doctor about her or any thoughts on it yourself? Yes, yes, I have and thank you for all the discussion youve
had about it. You have talked about the one study that said it had to be withdrawn, so yeah, my doctor and I are all in. I got a text before I came on from a friend doctor who just found out. He had it and he started the regimen too zinc and hydroxychloroquine, and that will start in a day or two. So thank you. I will send you the article Daniel Wallace is his name, probably the preeminent expert on Lupus and rheumatoid arthritis and for forty two years has given this in the doses for Covid, the risk is zero percent. His words, not mine for anybody, consult your doctor. Obviously I will send that, like anyone else, you are in our prayers and we wish you a God, speed, recovery,
im glad you will not believe.
