Things got heated on CNN when "New Day" host John Berman and White House trade advisor Peter Navarro duked it out during an interview about a debate he had with Dr. Anthony Fauci over hydroxychloroquine's efficacy against the coronavirus.
In the interview, Berman questions Navarro's qualifications to even be able to have input about it, to begin with.
Navarro even admitted that he agreed with Dr. Fauci that there is no science to prove 100% that the drug works, but it's worth a shot. And the truth is that it's working.
Then Berman in an attempt to bring the interview to a close said to Navarro, “we all want the same thing, which is people to get better.”
That's when all hell broke lose.
“I’m not sure we do sometimes,” Navarro replied.
“What are you talking about?” Berman asked, “Don’t you dare for a second suggest that I don’t want people to get better. I got two friends in bed right now.”
“That’s not what I said. Don’t put those words in my mouth! When you say that when we come on here and we say we all want the same thing, there’s this political overtone, this battle between, you know, you’re trying to create this false dichotomy,” said Navarro.
“There’s no false dichotomy!” Berman said. “We want people to get better!”
Navarro reportedly had a heated confrontation over the weekend with Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, during a meeting of the White House task force on coronavirus, according to a report by Axios.
Fauci has emphasized that no studies have proven that hydroxychloroquine is a solid treatment for coronavirus so far, and he has urged caution in its use and in discussing it. But President Trump has repeatedly touted the drug, saying at a press conference on Sunday that while he is not a doctor, there is little risk to trying it.
