President Donald Trump on Wednesday ripped CNN after a correspondent asked him if he “regrets” tweeting about Dr. Stella Immanuel, a doctor who has promoted hydroxychloroquine and says that alien DNA is used in medical treatments, among other outlandish claims.

Immanuel said on the steps of the Supreme Court on Monday, at an event called the “White Coat Summit,” that she has successfully treated hundreds of coronavirus patients with the malaria drug, which she described as “a cure,” adding, “you don’t need a mask.”

“I was very impressed with her and other doctors that stood with her,” Trump said when asked why he was tweeting about Immanuel. “I think she made sense, but I know nothing about her, she made a statement with other respected doctors. She was making a statement about hydroxychloroquine with other doctors that swear by it. They think it’s great, but she was not alone. CNN said I said this and I said that. You ought to tell your network the reason the ratings are so bad is because the coverage is so bad, and that goes for MSNBC also. Your network is so dishonest about the coverage about everything and there’s the example.”

In videos posted on YouTube and in articles on her website, which were found by The Daily Beast, Immanuel, who is also a minister at Firepower Ministries in Houston, Texas, claimed that various medical issues such as infertility, impotence and endometriosis are caused by sexual intercourse with “spirit husbands” and “spirit wives,” that DNA from aliens is being used “to treat people,” and that scientists are trying to create a “vaccine” to prevent people from becoming religious.
