Other high-profile figures shared versions of the video on social media this week.

"I had absolutely no problem", Trump said and added, "It didn't get me and it's not going to hopefully hurt anybody".

It was "unlikely" that the drug for the treatment of Covid-19 is suitable.

The Daily Beast also reported this week that Immanuel holds several weird beliefs about sex and religion.

"A doctor, by the way, who also claims that gyneological problems are in fact caused by people having sex in their dreams of demons and witches, that alien DNA is now used in medical treatments, that scientists are cooking up a vaccine to prevent people from being religious, and the government is run in part not by humans but by reptiles and other aliens".

Trump's critics have launched attacks on Immanuel, accusing her of misinformation.
