Former Vice President Joe Biden, speaking publicly for the first time about President Trump’s controversial announcement Monday that he was taking hydroxychloroquine to prevent coronavirus infection, reacted, as many Americans did, with bafflement.

“It’s like saying maybe if you inject Clorox into your blood it may cure you,” Biden said at a Yahoo News town hall on COVID-19 and food insecurity, where he was joined by celebrity chef and anti-hunger activist José Andrés. “C’mon, man! What is he doing? What in God’s name is he doing?”

At the White House on Monday, Trump surprised reporters by announcing that he was taking the drug despite the absence of proof that it is useful in treating or preventing coronavirus infection.

“I’m taking it, hydroxychloroquine, right now, yeah,” Trump said. “Couple of weeks ago, I started taking it. Because I think it’s good, I hear a lot of good stories. And if it’s not good, I’ll tell you right. I’m not going to get hurt by it.”
