Yes, Trump did suggest that doctors investigate the injection of disinfectant to combat COVID..as well as using internal UV light.
These are the direct quotes:
“”I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that.””
“”So supposing we hit the body with a tremendous — whether it’s ultraviolet or just a very powerful light — and I think you said that hasn’t been checked because of the testing,” Trump said, speaking to Bryan during the briefing. “And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or some other way, and I think you said you’re going to test that, too.””
Yes, Trump tried to walk it back, saying “he was being sarcastic.”
Bottom line: what the man said was downright idiotic. No, he didn’t suggest that anyone ingest disinfectant though…not that people haven’t tried.
But try getting a Trump supporter to admit that he even said what he did and that what he said was moronic. Just try. You won’t be able to.
Yes, all politicians say stupid stuff from time to time.
Hillary Clinton “dodged sniper fire.” (psst: she apologized and recanted).
Barack Obama made that “if you like your insurance plan you can keep it (should have added “and if the plan qualifies”)
Joe Biden had President Roosevelt going on TV to reassure the country after the stock market crash (Hoover was president and there was no TV at the time).
Mitt Romney wondered why airplane widows couldn’t be opened to get air into the cabin (he was talking about airliners).
People say stupid stuff…not that Trump is capable of admitting to a mistake.
But we are so tribal…it is either you are with US or with THEM.
And yes, the left is often identified with the moronic wing of the woke movement…here is but one example.
