Lysol maker warns people against injecting disinfectant after statement by Trump

Consumers are being strongly warned by the makers of the disinfectant Lysol not to inject it as a cure for the novel coronavirus disease. The statement comes following comments by president Donald Trump, during a press briefing, to researchers suggesting they should look into injecting chemicals like disinfectants into patients to fight Sars-Cov2.

Trump didn't suggest anything. He asked a question. The question he was trying to ask is: If disinfectants can kill the virus on a surface, is there a human-safe equivalent? Trump just isn't good with words sometimes and media interprets everything he says in the worst possible way. The worst the media might be able to say is he "implied" people should do this, but he definitely didn't make a suggestion.

"Wow did he really say that?" No, it turns out he didn't. It turns out the media went beyond the least charitable interpretation possible, deliberately misrepresented a passing statement, and quoted themselves for the headline. Then they stroke their ego by calling his enmity towards them dangerous, as if CNN journalists in a studio are in the same danger as idk, journalists covering Mexican drug cartels.

It won't cure covid-19, but injecting Lysol will cure your TDS

Should have been a nothing remark akin to Regan's "the bombing starts in 5 minutes." Instead it gets regurgitated by the media to the point manufacturers are putting out press releases telling people to not inject bleach. Seriously. People are not that fucking dumb are they?!

How low of an IQ do you need to believe this nonsense. Also this may not be the app for me anymore. I have been censored for an extremely minor comment. I made no threats and didn't even engage in direct name calling yet I was censored and my comment removed. I will begin searching for a new home for my discourse. It's really sad that this app has fallen prey to such censorious behavior. This app had sooo much potential and I had sang it's praises to everyone I talked to about media consumption. I will have to direct people elsewhere now. I truly enjoyed our interactions, too bad the powers that be couldn't keep their hands out of the cookie jar. Power is so intoxicating I am actually surprised they waited this long. It was a good run folks!

Newsflash for you Trumptards: a national coronavirus briefing from the white house is not the time or place to just throw out some RIDICULOUS ideas about consuming or injecting disinfectant or uv rays. How can you people be so dense? I just don't get it. It never ceases to amaze me how far these #WillfullyIgnorantTrumponians will go to defend their lord and savior. President Chump can say or ask the most stupid and even dangerous things and his cult45 will just keep on spinning it in whatever desperate way they can to make King Donald the Clown not look as foolish and incompetent as he is. Amazing 🤦🏾‍♂️

MAGA trolls make more excuses for Trump than people would for behavior of their spoiled kids. Of course he didn't say "hey drink disinfectant." But he talked about how great disinfectant was about clearing the virus and how we could be using it internally. If you have such idiotic questions, ask them in private so you don't give your stupid followers ideas. This "dumb thoughts out loud" thing it's something leaders need to break themselves of. Hopefully more people are rubbing against lightbulbs after his comments on light cures before they move on to house cleaners.

If you really think Trump is telling you to drink this stuff to treat the rona then at this point it’s just natural selection.

1) This is a misrepresentation of what was said. 2) Regardless, if you aren’t a medical professional, DO NOT propose treatments, especially if your previous statements have resulted in death. 3) It should be common sense that disinfectants cannot be injected into the body.

Mr. Trump, instead of President Trump. That's insanely disrespectful to the office.

Lol, Trump defended himself by saying he was being sarcastic, call bs on that. But these tribalists in the comments still actually defend such a retarded comment, as if it's a serious proposition. Not even his own base could perceive this as sarcasm.

Trump tweeted to liberate states and though he didn't say people should protest, people did. Trump asking questions about injecting disinfectant. He didn't say people should do it but people might which is why it is so consequential.

The media has a big laugh and the public trust in the media continues to sink to the lowest levels ever recorded. Someone is confused about infotainment. Trump is an old man. Grandpa can remember things that the modern world never knew existed and which shows modern news reporters and journalists are nothing more than communist agitators that never do their homework.

No he said it... But you won't believe it even when you hear him say it... Ever making excuses for the blatant ignorance

I don't think anyone would seriously contemplate injecting disinfectant, based on the comment that Trmp made. If they would then I say have at it. Both sides of the media are toxic.
