Personal truth comes from experience. Specifically, personal life experience. It differs from universal truth which is factual. Personal truth comes with liberty of its owner – that it works – regardless what others say or think.
So, when Mr. Trump says the he is taking the antimalaria drug hydroxychloroquine against the COVID-19, I say good for him. Maybe that is what he believes, or his personal truth if you will. And it could make “a real difference” for Mr. Pence.
A personal truth for me is that I don’t trust people who lie. And Mr. Trump has earned the honor to be on top of my list. Almost nothing he says sticks with me. Certainly, I would not follow his advise about the hydroxychloroquine.
But, I would not stop anybody who choose to follow Mr. Trump’s medical advise. After all, no one knows what will work for sure when it comes to COVID-19, and Mr. Trump is the (US) President. Who knows, maybe his followers find their personal truth with him. Whom am I to judge.
Do you think about the FDA’s warning against the hydroxychloroquine?
