Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, April 24, 2020

Members of President Donald Trump's coronavirus task force and aides in the West Wing were shocked on Thursday when he promoted the use of light and disinfectant to treat the deadly respiratory illness, according to administration officials. ... The plan was to stress during the daily White House coronavirus briefing that disinfectants should be used on surfaces, but then "the president took it a couple steps further," one administration official said.

Medical officials cast Thursday's presidential twist on scientific information as perhaps his most dangerous and misleading attempt yet to project a positive outlook on the coronavirus pandemic.

"asking what if is now promoting."

Huh?

Was a reporter supposed to say "That's a stupid idea, Mr. President, and it won't work."?

No, liberals believe that the PRESIDENT OF THE FREAKING UNITED STATES should be smart enough to know that you CAN'T INJECT CLEANSERS INTO THE BODY AND LIVE, AND THAT LIGHT APPLIED TO THE SKIN WILL NOT KILL A VIRUS DEEP INSIDE YOU!!!! He needs to STFU and stop wasting the researcher's time with this moronic drivel!

YOU Cult45 members are so FREAKING STUPID I am beyond words!!!!! I mean Dumbya was stupid, but I'm sure he wasn't so infantile that he didn't understand that ingesting Chlorox/409/Mr. Clean will kill you not the damned virus! Dotard needs to stop with the happy talk and the snake oil medical advice from the podium because it's actively hurting Americans. There are stupid people who watch Faux and who are showing up at these open government astro-turf rallies who are convinced that Drumpf found a cure!

CDC is advising AGAINST the use of Drumpf's "game-changer" medication hydroxychloroquine because it does more harm than good, like stopping and/or damaging your heart! This is a drug that he actively promoted numerous times from the podium as not just a treatment but a prophylactic (something Drumpf has obviously never used) saying, "what do you have to lose?" He wanted to offer it as an OTC medication! He forced the government to waste money to buy MILLIONS of doses! Faux Spews is hopefully going to get sued into bankruptcy thanks to their active promotion of this snake oil sham! Drumpf is no better than Jim Bakker or Alex Jones, next he'll offer colloidal silver or "Super Vitality Health" supplements as the cure.

No one in their right mind would ever ask 'what if people were injected with poison'. No one in their right mind would spew absolute nonsense when Americans are looking for information and assurance during a time of great crisis.

Besides, didn't you hear? Trump ended up claiming "I was asking a question sarcastically to reporters like you just to see what would happen". So according to the Donald, all of you Trumpets got it wrong. He wasn't asking 'what if', and y'all fell for it.

Remember hydroxychloroquine? It'll go away in April? Near zero cases?

How many times does Trump have to be spectacularly wrong for you to get it?

Come on. Even his own aides, associates and Republicans are embarrassed by Trump on a daily basis. That is a fact.

No. What's dizzying is the depths to which the right will play stupid.

These comments were beyond dumb yet here you are spinning a web of BS to justify why it's really not that bad.

"what if" ~~ LOL

There is no "if."

Open your eyes and ears and check the backlash.

DEREK summed it up in his first line:

"No one in their right mind . . . ."

That applies to both Trump and JDMETH

So, what if, we fed radioactive isotopes to people with the Coronavirus. It would probably kill the virus but possibly kill the patient first but, at least, we wouldn't be burying still infected corpses. There would be the small problem of radioactive cemeteries though, but it would only be for 10,000 years or so.

All the not-liberals who bring their cute arguments and troll bait to the coronavirus conversation will inevitably change their tune when it is them, or a loved one, having a machine breathing for them. It's just the way they roll. I've stopped being nice to DJT followers, and they don't really care. For them, it's all about being ------ to the libz. All bullies change their tune when they get smacked in the face. Most not-liberals wind up "getting it" when the bad thing happens to them.

Trump's remarks re: injecting disinfectants was a prime example of his arrogance (and stupidity). He had it in his mind that he was such a bright guy (aka very stable genius) that he had the intellectual chops to come up with an idea that many thousands of researchers around the world had overlooked. Researchers that had spent their entire careers studying and dealing with the suppression of viruses.

It is no wonder that the Friday briefing was so short. Trump was so embarrassed that he couldn't confront the media.

The whole world is laughing at Trump and the US for having elected such a dumb --- lying POS.

They're laughing that they finally have incontrovertible evidence of what they've been saying about us all along.

I promise you that it is not liberals calling into Poison Control Centers around the country asking if they should be injecting/inhaling cleaning supplies. The Poison Control Center is located right down the hall from my office and they received 20+ calls from people wanting to know if they could inject/inhale disinfectants to prevent covid-19 yesterday.

"The fact that there are warnings like Do not drink' on bottles of bleach makes me realize that Donald Trump can become president."
