Congress’ Pharmacist Implied Some Lawmakers Have Alzheimer’s – Now He’s Backtracking

What happened?

Mike Kim, owner of the pharmacy that delivers prescription medications to members of Congress on Capitol Hill every day, seemed to let some big secrets slip during an interview with Stat News on Wednesday about his job.

Give me the exact quote:

“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country.

“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”

This doesn’t look so great.

Right. And it’s raising some big questions like “do Americans have the right to know when their lawmakers’ memories are slipping?”

Kim is attempting to take charge of the story with a follow-up quote, saying, “I am not aware of any member that actually has Alzheimer’s and would certainly not disclose any such information if I did know… patient privacy is a very serious matter that I am committed to upholding.”

GLENN: How would you like to have one of those old-fashioned pharmacies? You know, one that would deliver the medicine right to your front door, your office, whenever you need it. It would pretty cool, wouldn't it?

And all you would have to do is become an elected member to Congress. That's it.

For the last 20 years, the oldest pharmacy in Washington, DC, Grubb's Pharmacy, founded in 1867, has been the exclusive provider for the members of Congress. Mike Kim is the owner of Grubb's Pharmacy. He appreciates the uniqueness of what he gets to do. He gets to fill the pill bottles of all of the revered lawmakers. And he's used to knowing all the nitty-gritty details about the medicinal needs of the Schumers and the Pelosis and the McConnells of Congress. No big deal.

He told a reporter this week, at first it's cool.

Now, think, why would this guy say this? Why would he say this to a reporter, knowing that there will be consequences to his business?

At first, it's cool. And then you realize, I'm filling drugs that have some pretty serious health problems attached to them. And these are the people running the country, end quote.

What kind of problems are we talking about? According to Kim, just your run-of-the-mill serious health problems like, quote, diabetes and Alzheimer's.

Alzheimer's? Quote, it makes you kind of sit back and say, wow. They're making the highest laws in the land, and they might not even remember what happened yesterday. End quote.

Kim took some flak for his admission that he fills Alzheimer's medicine prescriptions for some members of Congress. Later, he did do some backtracking, saying that the illness that he listed was meant as a hypothetical. I'm not aware of any member that actually has Alzheimer's. And would certainly not disclose any information if I did know. Except, he just basically did that.

As their employer, we have a right to know about the people who are running our country. Why would Mr. Kim say these things? Why?

It's sad that some may have actual health problems. But we have a right to know if any member of Congress or the Senate doesn't exactly remember what might have happened yesterday.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"

Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.
