I love how every meme, article, Facebook comment and tweet entirely mess up the drug’s actual function.

I’ve seen AIDS drug, cancer drug, flu vaccine, and birth control so far. It’s none of those – it’s meant to treat toxoplasmosis and pneumocystis pneumonia (the latter in concert with another medication), which DO affect people with HIV because of their compromised immune systems, but it’s still not an HIV/AIDS vaccine.

It’s a shitty practice, for sure. But it’s not helping the cause against him if nobody knows what the drug is for.
