On Tuesday, Americans woke to ‘demon sperm’ trending on Twitter. It’s thanks to Dr. Stella Immanuel, a minister whose touting of dubious health material — notably praising anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a COVID ‘cure’ — has been and his son despite the FDA warning against its use
Then, Donald Trump Jr.’s Twitter account was temporarily frozen on Tuesday after he posted a Breitbart video spreading misinformation about the coronavirus featuring Immanuel. Get to the demon sperm, you say? Well, it’s another of Immanuel’s theories.
All of this caused The Daily Show‘s Trevor Noah to urge viewers to question misinformation from dubious sources when it relates to our health and tackling a pandemic, despite the president’s tendency to just go with it.
“Despite having the world’s top doctors at his disposal, Trump has decided instead to trust a doctor who believes that people get sick because they masturbate, and that vaccines are made from alien DNA,” said Noah at the end of a COVID check-in on Tuesday.
“So look, America has two choices right now: Limit the spread of corona by following the science, or listen to the advice of internet randos like Dr. Demon Sperm.”
