Donald Trump wants you to know that there’s a way to inject sunlight into the body so it’ll kill coronavirus. That was his overriding message during his press briefing today. Unfortunately for Trump, even his own experts weren’t willing to side with him on this bizarre nonsense.
When a reporter asked the Homeland Security expert if sunlight could really be injected into the body, he said no. When a reporter asked Dr. Birx if she knew what on earth Trump was talking about, even she wouldn’t touch it. The whole thing just kept getting stupider. By the time Trump got hit with a question he didn’t like, he blurted out “CNN is fake news. Don’t talk to me.” Not long after that, he left the stage.
Trump also suggested ingesting disinfectant directly into the body as a coronavirus miracle cure. To be clear, not only will this not help you, it could kill you. Disinfectants such as hand sanitizer and isopropyl alcohol are poisonous if ingested. In fact, 99% isopropyl alcohol is so dangerous, you can burn your skin just by touching it. Trump continues to offer phony medical advice that can prove fatal if you listen to him.
