Woman Who Ate Fish Tank Cleaner is Democrat Donor

Woman Who Ate Fish Tank Cleaner is Democrat Donor

Last week, after President Trump declared that hydroxychloroquine was a possible treatment for the Chinese coronavirus, a story about an Arizona woman and her husband eating fish tank cleaner with a similar-named ingredient went viral. It resulted in her husband’s death and sent her to the hospital.

She blamed Trump for the tragic incident, saying “We saw Trump on TV—every channel—and all of his buddies and that this was safe. Trump kept saying it was basically pretty much a cure.”

Social media was divided on the issue. Liberal pundits predictably spread the story as evidence that Trump was “killing people.” Others simply blamed stupidity – and some went as far as to speculate that the woman was attempting to cover up a murder.

Time will tell what really happened. While the media made this woman sound like a regular, everyday American who trusted her president, she actually is a prominent Democrat donor, having donated thousands in the last two years. So – why would she start taking the advice of Trump all of a sudden?

As the Washington Free Beacon reports:

The woman’s most recent donations, in late February, were to a Democratic PAC, the 314 Action Fund, that bills itself as the “pro-science resistance” and has vocally criticized the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and held up her case to slam the White House… Federal Election Commission records show that Wanda has donated thousands of dollars to Democratic electoral groups and candidates over the past two years, including Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and EMILY’s List, a group that aims to elect pro-choice female candidates.

The woman then told the Free Beacon that she and her husband were actually Democrats.

“We weren’t big supporters of [Trump], but we did see that they were using it in China and stuff,” Wanda told the Free Beacon. “And we just made a horrible, tragic mistake,” she said. “It was stupid, and it was horrible, and we should have never done it. But it’s done and now I’ve lost my husband. And my whole life was my husband.”

“We didn’t think it would kill us,” she added. “We thought if anything it would help us ‘cus that’s what we’ve been hearing on the news.”

According to court docments, Wanda has a history of mental illness, and considered divorcing her now-deceased husband as far back as 2012.

Something tells me there’s a bit more to this story than we know so far.
