If you only watch one Q&A at a Donald Trump press conference, make it the ‘alien DNA’ one
You may have seen by now how Donald Trump shared a video on Twitter by a doctor promoting the disproved use of malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for Covid-19.
It’s not the physician’s only controversial view, it turns out. She also says that masks don’t work, there’s a cure for Covid-19 and, er, doctors make medicine using DNA from aliens.
And the only upside of the so-called president’s retweet was this Q&A at a White House press conference which, if it isn’t peak Trump, is surely something close to it. Watch to the end.

And our favourite things people said about it.

I know it's serious that the President is retweeting people who believe that medicine is made from alien blood but this is hilarious. Especially the sudden decision to exit stage right. It confirms my belief that Trump is – unknowingly – a great natural clown. https://t.co/pehr882lbO

"Doctors make medicine using DNA from Aliens" said a "Dr." the President of the United States of America retweeted last night.
Read that again out loud. https://t.co/ll4ta4t9yL

I was wondering if there was a glitch with DirecTv and I missed the question and answer. But no, per the usual he treats female reporters like total shit and walks out.
