Take a shot of Lysol, chew two lightbulbs, and call me in the morning

    Just when you thought he couldnt possibly get any worse, he redeems himself. Saddly there will be some Americans who will try it because the President sez so.

    History will never be able to suitably capture the depth of decrepitness of this President. It would be better to expunge him entirely.

    And now, please pass me my Drano shot.

    would be a lot better if people tried humming throughout the day. humming boosts nitric oxide levels, and nitric oxide is proving to have a positive effect on covid-19 patients.

    He’s just building on a well-trod popular tradition. FDR invited Americans in for fireside chats. Trump bids them join him for late-night drunken rants.

    Helen Kennedy, like most TDS sufferers, should really learn to read more than a provocative headline before offering her opinion:

    —————————

    So, I’m going to ask Bill a question that probably some of you are thinking of if you’re totally into that world, which I find to be very interesting. So, supposing when we hit the body with a tremendous, whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light, and I think you said that hasn’t been checked, but you’re going to test it. And then I said supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way. And I think you said you’re going to test that too. Sounds interesting. And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that, so that you’re going to have to use medical doctors with, but it sounds interesting to me. So, we’ll see, but the whole concept of the light, the way it kills it in one minute. That’s pretty powerful.

      Fred,

      Somehow you think it comes off any better just because you put it in context, whatever that means in the TrumpMindTM?

      • Fred from BC says:

        Well, there’s more, of course…I didn’t include the part where Trump has a back-and-forth with Bill Bryan, who leads the Science and Technology Group at HDS:

        KARL: Can I ask about — the President mentioned the idea of cleaners, like bleach and isopropyl alcohol you mentioned. There’s no scenario that could be injected into a person, is there? I mean —

        BRYAN: No, I’m here to talk about the findings that we had in the study. We won’t do that within that lab and our lab. So —

        TRUMP: It wouldn’t be through injection. We’re talking about through almost a cleaning, sterilization of an area. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t work. But it certainly has a big effect if it’s on a stationary object.

        And yes, obviously…context is EVERYTHING when it comes to fake news stories ( just enough truth to do the required damage seems to be the standard). See the part where Trump says, “It wouldn’t be through injection”? You’ve been lied to, Ronald. AGAIN. Why doesn’t that piss you off?

        (I won’t even hazard a guess as to what “stationary object” refers to, though…:)

        • He definitely said “by injection inside” in the earlier quote. He only said it wouldn’t be through injection after been told it wouldn’t be done. Classic Trump.

          You will agree that musing about cures that pop into your head in a major crisis during a nationally broadcast news conference is an incredibly foolish thing to do.

          Fred,

          Reagan was one of the most successful presidents in American history. I didn’t agree with a lot of his policy but like so many I loved Reagan. Had I been older, I likely would have loved Kennedy too.

          However, Reagan because of his age and at least in part due to his declining cognitive health insisted on single-page briefing across all issues.

          Correct me if I’m wrong but Trump appears to be fundamentally disinterested in policy and often pawns off important if not critical briefings on Pence. Hence the lack of his baseline knowledge when the outbreak first took off in mid-March. Trump seemingly did not know, much less master this brief. As a result, he’s a slow learner with a natural inclination toward winging it in front of the cameras. IMHO, no other president would have ever done that on so many issues. Deliberately hands-off and detached from his own presidency is certainly not in his political interest, much less in the nation’s. That’s the main problem with Trump and he deserves to be roasted politically for it by all sides, that is if both sides of the aisle actually have any political balls.

          • Fred from BC says:

            “Reagan was one of the most successful presidents in American history. ”

            Agreed. Setting the stage for the demise of the Soviet Union will always be remembered as his greatest accomplishment, I think.

            “Hence the lack of his baseline knowledge when the outbreak first took off in mid-March. Trump seemingly did not know, much less master this brief. ”

            You could say that.

            (and of course you could say the *exact same thing* about Justin Trudeau and many other world leaders, right?)

            You could also say that he leaves the details to the people with the proper expertise (haven’t I had this conversation here before, about being smart enough to hire smarter people?). His real problem seems to be wanting to have conversations in public that should probably be held in private, but that’s just one of his many character flaws that some people hate and others love, I guess.

            At least when he says something like this:

            “And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning?”

            …he is aware that he is *asking a question*, and not making a statement (believe it or not, some people aren’t smart enough to recognize the obvious difference).

          • Ronald O'Dowd says:

            Fred,

            You could say that about Trudeau or anyone else, generically speaking, but since when is Pence an expert in the field?

            Meanwhile, OK, he’s asking a question — not making a statement — but it still comes off as a remark made by someone who isn’t too with it, to be polite. I guess Biden has company?

          • He asked an incredibly stupid question at an incredibly stupid time.

            Now today he incredibly stupidly called reports to return thier Nobel Prizes.

        • You would think they would have clued in long ago to force an executive editor on him so that not a single Tweet would go out until it passed the smell test, but I guess they collectively are even more stupid than I ever thought possible. One hell of a White House staff!

          • Fred from BC says:

            “You would think they would have clued in long ago to force an executive editor on him so that not a single Tweet would go out until it passed the smell test,”

            Oh HELL YES. That was what should have been done long LONG ago.

            I said right after his election that he needed to stop blurting out *the first things to cross his mind* on Twitter. I really thought someone would be able to reign him in, or at least convince him of the necessity of doing so…but no, that was not to be.

            Now that I have a better idea of the true depth of his narcissism, I no longer waste time hoping for that.
