Doctor Behind “America’s Frontline Doctors” Fired…But Plans To Hit Back…Hard
(Tea Party 247) – The Los Angeles-based physician behind America’s Frontline Doctors revealed on Thursday night that she was terminated from her job for sharing her medical opinion.
Speaking with Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Dr. Simone Gold of Monday’s “White Coat Summit” told host Tucker Carlson confirmed she’d been fired.
Gold and her colleagues received a flurry of attacks for boldly touting the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 patients.
“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 explained.
Video of the press conference was swiftly censored by Twitter, Facebook, Google, and Google-owned YouTube. The mainstream media attacked the doctors for promoting “unproven conspiracy theories.”
In the video, Gold urged the public to understand that “the American people have not heard from all of the expertise that’s out there all across our country” in regards to the coronavirus.
BizPac Review explains:
According to HealthGrades.com, Dr. Gold is an emergency medicine specialist with more than 31 years of experience in the medical field, and is (or was) affiliated with Centinela Hospital Medical Center.
Graduating from Chicago Medical School in 1989, Gold completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York.
Carlson rightly noted during their conversation that the message the video contained “would hurt the Joe Biden for President campaign and so they pulled it off the internet and banned anyone from sharing it.”
Gold said that the video was entirely unrelated to her work.
“I’m very well-liked liked, well-regarded. Thankfully I have a wonderful reputation with the patients, with my staff and with colleagues, and I actually enjoy what I do,” she said.
“We came to Washington because we are so distressed,” Gold said. “Frontline doctors like myself, we’re seeing patients not get what they need, we’re seeing doctor-patient relationships being completely eroded and governors are empowering pharmacies to overrule doctors who’ve had conversations with their patients. It’s really something that Americans should all be alarmed about.”
Gold also revealed that her website for America’s Frontline Doctors was also taken down.
She explained in a tweet that the site host, Squarespace, “completely and arbitrarily shout down our website, claiming a violation of their terms of service.”
WOW: Our website host @Squarespace has just completely and arbitrarily shut down our website, claiming a violation of their terms of service.
We are a group of physicians advocating for a better understanding of COVID-19 and its available treatment options.

The video, Gold explained, was just a small part of Monday’s events. The summit spanned seven hours during which doctors explained in great detail “everything” associated with treating the coronavirus.
A new website has been set up for all this information at: Americasfrontlinedoctorsummit.com.
“I don’t want anyone just to believe me because I’m saying it,” Gold told Carlson. “We have put together a white paper that has all the science — it’s utterly irrefutable that hydroxychloroquine is safe.”
As the drug is FDA approved, Gold noted that it’s “strange” that we’re still talking about it.
“It’s been around for 65 years. It’s been around since long before George Washington gave it to his troops. It’s kinda strange,” she said.
Gold, in conclusion, asked people to “please stop saying negative things about me. I’m a board-certified emergency physician, I take good care of patients.”
She also revealed that she has hired celebrity attorney Lin Wood, who just secured Kentucky high school student Nick Sandmann a massive settlement in their case against the Washington Post.
“We hired Lin Wood to help me in this matter and I hope that puts to rest anything that people might want to say that’s defamatory,” Gold said.
Sounds like this certainly is not the last we’ve heard of Gold.
