James O'Brien's reaction to Trump supporting "alien DNA" doctor

Twitter suspends Donald Trump Jr over Covid-19 video

After enjoying a handful of Dr. Stella Immanuel's biggest hits, a surprised Noah explained, "Yes, in spite of having the world's leading health professionals at his disposal, Trump has made the decision in its place to rely on a health practitioner who believes that people today get ill simply because they masturbate and that vaccines are built from alien DNA".

President Donald Trump also retweeted the video in question, but he abruptly ended his press briefing on Tuesday when asked about the footage.

"We've removed this video for making false claims about cures and prevention methods for Covid-19", a company spokeswoman for Facebook, which owns Instagram, told AFP on Wednesday.

Twitter said the post had violated its Covid-19 misinformation rules.

The guild of medical directors, a group of private hospital owners in Nigeria, said the claim by a Nigerian-born USA doctor, Stella Immanuel, that COVID-19 has a cure is unproven. "You don't need masks, there is a cure", the pediatrician said.

In the video, Dr. Stella Immanuel, a physician from Houston, promotes hydroxychloroquine as a cure for coronavirus.

"Science and medicine have always been full of accounts like this, and, that's why you do randomized clinical trials to actually be able to compare patient to patient", Birx said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends" about hydroxychloroquine, which President Donald Trump has often touted, including this week.

But there's one more commonality between President Trump and Dr. Immanuel - both have a history of making freakish claims on medical and other issues.

"Another video that was pinned to the top of her profile with the hashtag "#HCQWorks" was also removed. She obtained her medical license in Nigeria, Africa's most populous country and largest economy.

It was also uncovered that Immanuel back in 2019 was sued for medical malpractice.

In her other conspiracy theories, she says alien DNA is now used in medical treatments and that scientists are working on a vaccine to make people less religious.

Her sermons, which are hosted on her YouTube channel, include messages of support for President Trump.
