Dr. Drew speculated that Hillary Clinton has a major neurological disorder, and CNN fired him? They fired him for that??????????
Do we have fascism in this country or what? Why the hell can't he say whatever he thinks? The deep integration of large corporate entites with the State: that's what fascism is. In Germany, they called it corporatism. And that's what we have here. CNN may as well be called Pravda.
Well, to be honest, some of what Dr. Drew said is absolutely RIDICULOUS. He criticized her doctors for putting her on Armour Thyroid for her hypothyroidism, and he suggested that the Armour may have caused her stroke. He referred to it as an outdated 1950s medicine.
But, the fact is that millions of Americans take the natural desiccated thyroid, of which Armour is just one brand. They prefer it to the synthetic pharmaceutical thyroid. A lot of patients prefer it, and a lot of doctors prefer it- not just Hillary's. Unlike Synthyroid, which is the synthetic form from Big Pharma, which only provides the inactive form of the hormone known as T4, natural desiccated thyroid provides both T4 and T3, the latter being the active form of the hormone. When you take Synthroid, you are depending on your body to convert T4 into T3. But guess what? A lot of bodies just don't do it. They either don't do it at all, or they don't do it adequately. The result is that the patient gets no bump at all in T3 from taking Synthroid.
If I were hypothyroid, I would definitely take the natural desiccated thyroid, such as Armour, as Hillary is doing. Dr. Drew is completely full of it on that issue. And for him to suggest that the Armour she takes had, or probably had, or even may have had something to do with her stroke was totally unwarranted.
So, I'm glad the fool got fired. From having said that, my diagnosis is that he is a stupid man; a lousy doctor; and unfit to give anyone medical advice. Nevertheless, it's SCARY to think that a corporation would be so protective of a political candidate as to fire someone for assailing her health. What if Dr. Drew had said something negative about Trump's health? Do you think they would have fired him for that? I doubt it.
