I almost feel sorry for Trump supporters.
I expect some will be dying soon.
Not from the coronavirus that they see as a hoax, but by ingesting Lysol! In another surreal Task Face briefing Thursday Trump was pushing Lysol and Light as cures for the coronavirus.
The backlash to Trump's dangerous stupidity was almost instant. The makers of Lysol begged people NOT TO INGEST their product on their website and a series of tweets.
Trump tried, and failed, to get the two healthcare officials at the briefing to go along with his crazed contention that a combination of light "put in the body," and putting a disinfectant "in the body," would be a miracle cure.
Afterwards, the medical world was horrified.
Republicans and Democrats were both confused and stunned that the president of the United States took a swan dive from reality on national TV. While Republican lawmakers were looking for places to hide to avoid any interviews on Trump's latest cure, Democrats called bullshit on his insane claims.
For most of Trump's life as a pitchman he only had his own reputation on the line. But now, during a pandemic other peoples lives are at risk.
After Trump's dangerous flight from reality, he came back the next day and told Americans that their eyes had lied... and what he really said was done so with sarcasm. One of his propaganda minions told the press Trump's words were taken out of context... which of course, was another lie.
Before peddling his latest snake medicines, Lysol and Light, Trump was selling hydroxychloroquine as a "game changer" cure.
After studies and healthcare experts knocked that claim down, Trump went in search of another "miracle" cure, which led to him suggesting ingesting Lysol would cure COVID-19.
Trump is a world class narcissist who rejects science and healthcare experts in lieu of political propaganda that he's got the pandemic under control - with plenty of testing - and cures.
No one seems capable of stopping the dangerous misinformation from flowing daily during the Task Farce briefings. The only thing the media can do is to continue fact-checking him immediately, and wait until he's voted out of office in November.
