Now, don’t get me wrong, this is a tragic event and I would never wish this upon anyone.
However, I’m more than certain she’s the last person who should be the spokesperson for … anything.
As previously reported by Chicks on the Right:
An Arizona couple attempted to self-medicate when they confused a common fish aquarium cleaner for being as effective as the malaria drug that has been publicized.
They ingested this chemical compound, chloroquine phosphate, not realizing that the chemical is not intended for human ingestion, and the malaria drug that contains hydroxychloroquine functions differently in its projection to help coronavirus infections.
Unfortunately, the man has passed away and his wife is currently in critical condition, both being in their 60s.
The woman, Wanda, who ingested the fish tank cleaner, donated to the 314 Action in late February, which is a Democratic PAC, and openly criticizes the Trump Administration on their website’s missions statement.
According to Free Beacon:
Wanda does not appear to have a long history of political donations, according to FEC reports. Her contributions to Democrats rose sharply over the past few years. Her first recorded political donation was $150 to Hillary Clinton in 2016, according to FEC records. The next year she gave $550 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Since 2018, she has contributed approximately $6,000 to Democratic electoral groups.

The 314 Action especially criticizes Trump’s efforts and response in the coronavirus pandemic. Which, considering Wanda’s devout disagreement with anything that is Trump, I’m surprised she trusted the chemical recommendation (in which she got terribly wrong anyways but that’s not the point) and followed through with her actions at all.
314 Action opens their mission statement as being founded by members of the STEM community, grassroots supporters and political activists who believe in science. [They] are committed to electing more STEM candidates to office, advocating for evidence-based policy solutions to issues like climate change, and fighting the Trump administration’s attacks on science.
According to Free Beacon:
Wanda told the Free Beacon that she and her husband were both Democrats, not Trump supporters. They heard about the potential benefits of chloroquine, an antimalarial drug, in news reports.
She decided at the “spur of the moment” to try taking it, but reached for a fish tank cleaner in her pantry that contains chloroquine phosphate, a different and deadly form of the chemical. The Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency authorization for the use of chloroquine to treat coronavirus on Sunday.
Wanda still blames President Trump even though she’s the one who misconstrued the chemicals and incorrectly self-medicated.
