Donald Trump suggested in a rambling press conference yesterday that household disinfectants could be injected into the body to eliminate the COVID-19 virus. Seriously, that’s what he said. From the Washington Post:
“I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute,” Trump said during Thursday’s coronavirus press briefing. “And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside, or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets inside the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that.”
Injecting household disinfectants into human beings is something Josef Mengele would find interesting. Never in my life did I imagine we’d have a president who would suggest injecting dangerous chemicals into Americans. It’s absurd.
Injecting disinfectant is a method some people use to commit suicide. Could it be that Trump just wants people to commit suicide? Sometimes I feel that way. I feel like Trump and some of our other elected officials would prefer it if a lot of us just killed ourselves.
Donald Trump is the worst president we’ve ever had
Donald Trump is the worst president we’ve ever had. I reluctantly voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. As hesitant as I was to vote for her, I have no doubt she would have been a much better president than who we have now. She would never suggest on live TV that sick Americans be injected with household disinfectants.
