Trump Disinfectant Injection Theory Takes World — and Lysol — by Storm

Donald Trump suggests disinfectant injection or UV light therapy for coronavirus

According to Donald Trump disinfectant injection with Lysol or a stiff drink of bleach may be the new miracle cures for coronavirus. Consulting publicly with his coronavirus team, President Trump recommended a good internal wash of Lysol to rinse COVID-19 away. That and some internal sunlight/UV light infusions to dry things out afterward.

The president’s focus was clearly on getting the economy going safely again. Whether or not infusions of sunshine kill coronavirus throughout the body or Lysol injections or swallows can heal the body of coronavirus, Donald Trump assured the public his administration is pushing the outside of the envelope in search of creative cures that will help the US leave lockdown safely and open the nation for business once again.

In a presentation that really needs no satire because it stands on it is own in the halls of humor, the president assured the nation that Dr Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response co-ordinator, is looking into UV light infusions and disinfectant injections upon the president’s enlightened recommendation.

The president later tried desperately to walk it all back as a joke when Trump disinfectant injection memes and UV light therapy themes torched him like a man who fell asleep for eight hours in his tanning bed.

You decide if the president of the United States sounds like he was just kidding around and if the important people counseling him him sound like they’re laughing:

Trump disinfectant injection theory goes viral

Because our president has a good “you know what” (no, I don’t), he’s figured out that, if we could just inject disinfectant Lysol or bleach into the human body, that would provide a simple common-sense cleanse of the entire body from the inside out, just like we do with plastic surfaces. Why not, at least, look into it.

Likewise, since environments with warmth and sunlight diminish the spread of the illness, why couldn’t we just irradiate the body with some kind of intense, powerful UV light, to cure the disease.

The White House went into a rapid spin cycle late Thursday and Friday trying to clean up the president’s comments. The stain on the president did not come out, however. Perhaps they should have added bleach.

I, personally, think the president was inspired to come up with the Trump UV therapy plan while using his tanning bed (and maybe sniffing bleach) to think we could all have the same healthy, virus-defying orange glow the president emits after a prolonged session.

Quick to recognize global danger, Lysol tried to disinfect itself of all liability:

Apparently, corporate did not recognize the president was just joking or, being a disinfectant company, they have no sense of humor when it comes to bugs.

Discerning Twitter birds responded with such questions and statements as

What about Tide pods?

It’s a reasonable question. If Lysol or bleach work, maybe we should try chewable Tide pods. I wonder if they come in minty-fresh?

Some supporters found a better out for the president than trying to shrug his words off as lethal humor:

Certainly not a leader’s fault if a consumer lacks total common sense & drinks a disinfectant.

Agreed. People are stupid, and that’s their fault. The stupid ones probably should (and maybe would) inject disinfectants or drink bleach and would, thereby, cleanse the human gene pool. However, what gif it is the leader who appears to lack common sense? Then do we have a problem, Houston?

Might it add risk to the lives of the stupid if he tries to add credibility to the Trump Disinfectant Injection Theory with the help of a “top scientist” panel on national television and the weight of the office of president to make it sound like his bleach-and-UV-body-cleanse routine has merit?

Trump clearly did his best to draw in the support of a physician who is the White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator and who is also the United States Global AIDS Coordinator, and she politely said she hadn’t heard of the concept. One can only imagine how Dr. Birx cringed inside when the president turned to her and asked if she had ever heard of using intense heat or UV light as an internal antibiotic to kill coronavirus, and she responded,

“Not as a treatment….. I mean, certainly, fever is a good thing. When you have a fever, it helps your body respond. But I’ve not seen heat or light….”

Before she could get any further with diminishing his ideas, Trump interjected,

I think it’s a great thing to look at.

Always disinfect safely

At last, we now understand why so many cleaning products have to have disclaimers for idiots that say things like “You should not use Lysol as a beverage.” Or “Do not drink” on a can of Drano. “Do not touch shiny parts at the end of this electrical cord when plugging in.” We have presidents who think some of those things could potentially be good ideas, worthy of the exploratory time of the nation’s brightest scientists during a global plague.

Another Trump supporter stood by her man by saying the liberal press was

Just alarmed it might work. Politics as usual.

I think she was sniffing Trump Brand Bleach. Still another defended the president by sanitizing what he said for him,

President Trump was suggesting injecting buildings but fake news jumped in too quickly he is thinking outside the box truly a great leader

Or maybe the person who wrote that tweet was drinking outside the box when he thought it would work to blame fake news. If the president only meant injecting Lysol into buildings, it would be odd that the makers of Lysol so quickly objected to the misapplication of their product. Do they really not want their product used to cleanse the inside of buildings?

Nice try.

Not everyone was so ready to excuse the president on the basis that Trump Disinfectant Injection Theory was clearly meant to he applied only to building sanitation. Said one critic, quite simply,

Imbleach now.

A safety-minded individual added a creative alternative to Trump Lysol treatments. Perhaps taking capsules filled with Glenlivet whiskey would prove to be a less risky internal disinfectant scrub.

Trump disinfectant theory for the truly mad

Perhaps North Korea’s hospitalized leader, Kim Jung Un, got to where he is today by trying Lysol injections or a good bleach cleanse upon the president’s personal recommendation. In that case, maybe the president’s advice really is helping sanitize the world of viral plague. Let me raise a Glenlivet capsule to the president for that one.

To me, the whole show looked like the president wanted to let the world know in advance that he is the stable genius who gave these ideas to Dr. Birx to explore. That way, if there are any life-saving discoveries made here, Trump can claim they came by his inspiration and recommendation. He also wanted to get his ideas out there publicly before anyone else came up with them and got the glory by grabbing the news first. That, and he’s getting a little desperate to get the country that he shut down on these doctors’ advice running again and a little impatient with the doctors who keep telling him to keep it closed.

Onion prophet foresaw global cleansing

Apparently, the president was not the only one inspired because back in March The Onion prophesied the president would come up with these very ideas:

The Onion article described a hoarder getting ready for the Trumpocalypse:

Throwing bottles of bleach, ammonia, and Drano into a cart at his local grocery store, area man Troy Mitchell was reportedly stocking up on one of every cleaning product he could find Wednesday in case President Donald Trump announces it is a coronavirus cure. “I got toilet bowl cleaner, carpet cleaner, Swiffer WetJet refills—you name it—just so me and my family will be ready if the president announces one of these things can treat Chinese virus…. Could just be 10 or 20 squirts of Windex into each nostril. You never know what might work in a pinch!…”

Now that The Onion proved prophetic, Twitter users were quick to quip with such responses as …

Perhaps tRump’s been leafing through back issues of the Onion for some insight.

and …

We need the onion to create … articles about trump saying sensible stuff….and hope.

Imagine how hard it must be for them to make up stories more stupid than the ideas the shaved orangutan comes up with.

and …

Did Trump say 1 spoonful of bleach or 2 for kids ?

4-Disinfectant chess theory

As for the notion that no one would be dumb enough to try the Trump disinfectant plan — so there is no risk from the president appearing to strongly recommend it with health experts on TV — I seem to recall a lot of Iranians running to such chemical disinfectant cures a month or so ago … and dying. The president must have missed this article:

At least 44 dead from drinking toxic alcohol in Iran after coronavirus cure rumor

Or maybe he was inspired by it. It could be the president was hoping many Iranians were watching television while he advocated better products than the methanol they were accustomed to at home. If the advice is followed, it could save having to shoot boats that are playing dodgy war games around US aircraft carriers.

Just saying, this whole charade could have been 4-D chess aimed as counter-intel at the Iranians.

CNN correspondent and neurosurgeon Sanjay Gupta also disputed the suggestion of using disinfectant, and said, “I think everybody would know that would be dangerous and counterproductive, and not at all moving us in the right direction…. I mean, we know the answer to this one. There’s a lot of things out there we don’t know the answers to and we need to investigate.”
