Trump’s New Favorite COVID Doctor Believes in Alien DNA, Demon Sperm, and Hydroxychloroquine

Jul 29, 2020

By Will Sommer

A Houston doctor who praises hydroxychloroquine and says that face masks aren’t necessary to stop transmission of the highly contagious coronavirus has become a star on the right-wing internet, garnering tens of millions of views on Facebook on Monday alone. Donald Trump Jr. declared the video of Stella Immanuel a “must watch,” while Donald Trump himself retweeted the video.

Before Trump and his supporters embrace Immanuel’s medical expertise, though, they should consider other medical claims Immanuel has made—including those about alien DNA and the physical effects of having sex with witches and demons in your dreams.

Immanuel, a pediatrician and a religious minister, has a history of making bizarre claims about medical topics and other issues. She has often claimed that gynecological problems like cysts and endometriosis are in fact caused by people having sex in their dreams with demons and witches.

  • It’s not clear whether anyone is actually trying to take Immanuel’s license

    How on earth is she allowed to practise?  By the way, in any civilisation in which the nominal form of words such as device, licence, or practice  can be spelt with an s, must have something awry.  Device/devise give you the clue, they are pronounced differently.

    They also have two unrelated definitions.

    I lived in Florida for 7 years, and became numb to the typos and grammar faux pas on billboards and other advertising venues, even including newspaper headlines and articles. It was a little jarring at first, and I made the mistake of thinking the population was stupid; they aren’t. Not by a long shot. Ignorant, yes. But stupid? No.

    For me, it was a real internal struggle. But I think I came out of it a little wiser, and that epiphany has been helpful to me in this wildly fantastic Trump era.

    Not at all unrelated.  They both come from Latin dividere, to divide, through Old French and Middle English.  One of the things you can do is to devisedevice, though it might not be the most elegant English.  The dictionaries give many overlapping meanings of the verb and the noun. According to Webster’s-on-line, the two terms have spread into that worst-of-all languages, businessese, spelt no doubt in the American fashion.

    I did not know that, thanks.

    It is a fine example of ignorance vs stupidity. 🙂

  • Thanks for your most gracious reply.  My ignorance of science is much greater than your (wrongly) admitted ignorance of our language.  I’m just a pedantic, old, retired English teacher.  Those who can do….
