Dr. Simone Gold, the Los Angeles-based physician behind America’s Frontline Doctors, a group advocating for hydroxychloroquine to be used in the fight against COVID-19, says she has been fired for expressing her medical opinion.

Gold shared the news in an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson Thursday night, saying she was removed from her job due to her appearance in a viral video touting the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine.

“I’m a board-certified emergency physician for 20 years, and in fact, it seems like until five minutes ago I was considered a hero and people would be clapping and glad that I was doing what I was doing, and then the video came out and I was summarily fired for appearing in what was told to me is an embarrassing video,” Gold told Carlson.

Gold, who graduated from Chicago Medical School in 1989 and completed her residency at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, appeared in the controversial “White Coat Summit” video earlier this week, organized by her organization and conservative political organization, Tea Party Patriots.

A 40-minute video of a news conference that took place during the summit was posted across social media platforms and quickly garnered millions of views. In the video, one of the doctors, Dr. Stella Immanuel, a Houston pediatrician and religious minister, referred to studies that claim hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work as “fake science.”

The video was shared widely on Facebook and Twitter by many, including President Donald Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr.

Shortly after the video was posted, however, it was removed by Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube for allegedly making false and dubious claims related to the coronavirus.

Gold said that in addition to the social media giants censoring the video, website host SquareSpace also shut down her organization’s website.

Appearing on Glenn Beck’s radio program Thursday, Gold reiterated many of her group’s claims about the hysteria and controversy surrounding hydroxychloroquine, which she called a “complete myth.”

“Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It’s the most noncontroversial of medications that there is,” she said.

“It’s been around for centuries and it’s been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years,” she continued. “In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it … it’s one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world.”

    What is the “establishments” problem with this treatment? At worst it does no harm. And there is evidence if administered early it may mitigate they symptoms of Covid-19. I am beginning to suspect they do not want an existing, well tested, treatment because they have money invested in the vaccines being developed, and if there is an existing treatment they are not going to make billions of dollars to put in their pockets. Ya-think…?!?!?

      You hit the nail on the head! MONEY! Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates stand to gain billions from a “vaccine!” This is all about controlling the American Citizens! Fauci has contradicted himself…flip flopping and now saying we might need to wear eye protection as well, can’t sing in churches, limiting church attendance, but will not agree that protests and riots contribute to the spreading. Not only does he speak out of both sides of his mouth, when he threw the pitch out at the first baseball game, he then set up in the stands, side by side, not social distancing, he was shoulder to shoulder, with mask around his neck not covering his mouth or nose, laughing and talking to the people beside him, one being his wife who also took her mask completely for the rest of the game! He is a liar! He has been working on a vaccine for HIV for YEARS with no success! He is not God but wants to be treated as if he knows more than any doctor in the United States even though he has never examined or treated a patient personally. WE ARE ALL BEING PLAYED just like the Jews being lead to the trains told they were going to be united with their family members only to end up at concentration camps and then onto the gas chambers or furnaces! Wake up before it’s too late! TRUMP 2020!

      • Not only American people’s but Worldwide. When is this charade going to be shutdown. All media platforms MUST be SHUTDOWN for the benefit of the entire world. President Trump please put an end to the MAFFIA behind these so called Social Media..

      You nailed it. They want their vaccine, not an inexpensive treatment.

      Welcome to the world of the AMA, FDA and Pharma industry represented inside the Department of Commerce. It might be noted that there will be probably close to a trillion dollars run through Wall Street stocks on ‘Covid companies by years end.The vast amount of dollars rotating in and out of these stocks are astounding. Reference volume charts on Kodak for example at Trump announcement and just two days of trading… and that is one company only/2 days! Additionally it might be mentioned there is already a ‘war’ of sorts going on between the Vaccine MFGers involved as to pricing dosages… 25$- 50$ is the word… multiply that by 100 million people and IT WILL BE ANNUALIZED- reacquiring annually.. just like the Hong Kong/every year flu since the 1960s!
      Which brings up a sad note… those receiving the Hong Kong flu vaccine have a significant subset of individuals that lose natural resistance… the children… to Covid. What a mess!

      If Obama was to tout it all the Democrats and Media would ask the Vatican to Canonize him for Sainthood.

  • Nathan M. says:

    Certain persons in power REALLY don’t want hydroxychloroquine to be talked about as a treatment for Chinese flu. I don’t know if that’s the Dems playing wannabe eugenics and hoping COVID wipes out all us icky Trump voters, or if it’s as Gerald says and it’s Big Pharma hoping for a more expensive vaccine they can force on people.

    • mike dar says:

      Both are the case…. Pharmas want and will have certain companies selected for the main contributors to “Solution” providing- monopoly. Trump did open up greatly the FDA restriction as to participation in Solution Creation… but one Dem gets into the White House and that disappears overnight as “Single provider’ stasis becomes the mode of government controlled ‘winners and losers’ becomes a standard practice again through the FDA AGENCY. It is going to be very difficult to establish long term a stoppage of corrupt cronyism between the most profitable sector anywhere in the world, Pharmaceutical companies(that can save you or you die) and politicians getting campaign DONATIONS.

    Fired for being a good Doctor? This is a discrace.

  • Art LaPella says:

    If you’re going to cite Stella Immanuel as an authority, I think you need to mention or refute what the MSM says are her other opinions. Like medical treatments they’re giving us have alien DNA.

    Worked Holy Providence Hospital, Burbank CA.
    Bless U for all your comments, Hoorah to the MDs

  • Intellectual Impaler says:

    What would “chap” their asses was if President Trump put her on a Board in his Administration or replace Fauci or Birx.
