Donald Trump: comments about injecting disinfectant were 'sarcastic'



Donald Trump insisted on Friday that he was being ‘sarcastic’ when he raised the possibility of disinfectants being injected into people to combat Covid-19, prompting the makers of Lysol and Dettol to say its products should ‘under no circumstance’ be used as an internal treatment for the coronavirus. The president instead focused on another potentially dangerous idea: using disinfectant on the hands. Household disinfectant is not intended for use on the body

    He was talking about medical ozone oxidative therapy. Keep laughing people, but you'll probably will be waiting in line later. In medicine, ozone therapy is used to disinfect and treat diseases by limiting the effects of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa.

    You tool, you weren't being sarcastic. You thought you had a brain wave- and could start buying stock in bleach.

    Unlike a decent human being, let alone a decent president, he's unable to ever admit he made a mistake.

    The news wants people to not read the label. Trump was talking about what if possibilities to reporters that don’t want to see a glass half full.

    This is the only smart and right advice DT has so far given to his citizens. Americans should follow his advice and ignore America haters’ criticism of this effective advice. Please Americans do it.

    Sarcastic, or ignorant, either way completely incompetent and unsuited to be holding a position of power.

    Frankly anyone today who continues to talk about this bleach thing is as stupid as the stupid comment Trump made about it. Honestly do people take every word Donald Trump says seriously? Trump just referenced a theory and everyone is talking about it…..Trump haters are really stupid people.

    Because making a sarcastic comment during a world wide pandemic that millions of people are suffering from directly as well as indirectly is obviously appropriate. For sure. Makes sense.

    Trust Trump"… We drink disinfectant ozonated water O3 every day for years or we do O3 rectal insufflations also, we have a dentist and doctor in our family that takes ozone every day before they go to work… Two of our local hospital got blacklight robots that give off ozone/O3 to kill the viruses. Trump is correct you can drink a disinfectant with guidelines. An example a black light C creates Ozone….. Ozone I believe is ~ 6000x stronger as than chlorine as a disinfectant. You should just be cautious breathing too much ozone. go to ozonespace dot com or promolife dot com "Trump has the correct idea…" Also, look at taking MMS and lots of Vitamin C
