Donald Trump pushed a baseless conspiracy theory that the “deep state” is delaying a coronavirus vaccine until after the election in an early morning Twitter rant on Saturday.

“The deep state, or whoever, over at the FDA is making it very difficult for drug companies to get people in order to test the vaccines and therapeutics,” he wrote.

“Obviously, they are hoping to delay the answer until after November 3rd. Must focus on speed, and saving lives!”

The head of the Food and Drug Administration, Dr Stephen Hahn, was nominated by Mr Trump for the role in 2019.

Mr. Trump followed up on his tweet with another referencing the FDA’s decision to revoke emergency authorisation of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for treating Covid-19, citing evidence that it is “unlikely to be effective” in treating the coronavirus.

“Many doctors and studies disagree with this!” he said, without providing any evidence.

Remember how I used to say that “This is going to send Trump around the bend?”

Yeah well, he is well past that bend and has sailed right off the damn cliff. 

Now I am starting to worry that crazy is contagious and that by writing about Trump my own mental health might be in jeopardy.
