President Donald Trump and numerous other Republicans shared a debunked video on social media featuring a doctor who has made bizarre claims about demon sex and alien DNA, The Daily Beast reports.
Trump shared a video on Twitter published by Breitbart featuring Stella Immanuel, a Nigerian doctor who recently got her medical license in Texas.
“You don't need masks,” she said in the video. "This virus has a cure — it's called hydroxychloroquine, zinc and Zithromax. You don't need masks — there is a cure."
The CDC and every other leading medical agency recommend wearing a mask to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The CDC, NIH, FDA, WHO, and numerous researchers have all rejected hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the coronavirus.
Twitter and other social networks removed the video after it was shared by Trump.
Immanuel believes some wild stuff:
Immanuel has a history of “bizarre claims,” The Daily Beast reported. “She has often claimed that gynecological problems like cysts and endometriosis are in fact caused by people having sex in their dreams with demons and witches.”
She has also said that alien DNA is used in medical treatments and that “scientists are cooking up a vaccine to prevent people from being religious.”
Witches and demons having sex with people “are responsible for serious gynecological problems,” Immanuel said in one YouTube video. “We call them all kinds of names—endometriosis, we call them molar pregnancies, we call them fibroids, we call them cysts, but most of them are evil deposits from the spirit husband. They are responsible for miscarriages, impotence—men that can’t get it up.”
Trump walks out when asked about Immanuel:
“Mr. President, the woman that you said is a great doctor in that video that you retweeted last night said masks don’t work and there is a cure for COVID-19, both of which health experts say is not true. She’s also made videos saying that doctors make medicine using DNA from aliens, and that they’re trying to create a vaccine to make you immune from becoming religious,” CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins said at Tuesday’s White House briefing. “What’s the logic in retweeting that?”
“Well, maybe it’s a saying, maybe it’s not,” Trump replied. “But I can — I can tell you this: She was on air, along with many other doctors. They were big fans of hydroxychloroquine, and I thought she was very impressive in the sense that, from where she came — I don’t know which country she comes from, but she said that she’s had tremendous success with hundreds of different patients. And I thought her voice was an important voice, but I know nothing about her.”
Trump abruptly walked out when Collins pressed further.
