Left wing activists twisted Trump’s words from the Coronavirus briefing on Thursday, swooping down on it like vultures on a carcass. Except their blitz was a huge lie.
Activists claimed that Trump told people to inject themselves with disinfectant and drink bleach to combat the coronavirus. He said no such thing. But in their deceived and twisted minds, the left-wingers once again thought they had something that would bring Trump down.
Bill Bryan, Under Secretary for Science and Technology at DHS, spoke at the press briefing about some of the things that have been tested in regard to the Coronavirus.
The Daily Wire “Fact Check” reported,
Bryan continued by noting that DHS also tested if certain types of disinfectant could kill the coronavirus.
“We’ve tested bleach, we’ve tested isopropyl alcohol on the virus, specifically in saliva or in respiratory fluids, and I can tell you that bleach will kill the virus in five minutes,” Bryan said. “Isopropyl alcohol will kill the virus in 30 seconds, and that’s with no manipulation, no rubbing. Just bring it on and leaving it go. You rub it and it goes away even faster.”
Bryan added, “We’re also looking at other disinfectants, specifically looking at the COVID-19 virus in saliva.”
Immediately following these remarks, Trump said:
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.
Of course because the President used the words “cleaning” and “inside”, the leftists immediately went off the rails.
Tonight the far left seems more upset about a report suggesting a former Treasury Secretary is advising @JoeBiden on economic policy than the fact that @realDonaldTrump urged Americans to inject themselves with disinfectant.
This is our political reality in a nutshell.

Trump downplayed the virus then called for rebellion then told people to drink bleach, maybe it's time to stop taking his press conferences live

President Trump can’t say anything these days without activists and the MSM making things up. Left wing activists twisted Trump’s words on every single issue the country has faced for the last 3 years. This one takes the cake however. They screamed over his statement that hydroxychloroquine showed promise as a treatment, and some low-information people ate fish tank cleaner. This time leftist claims could prompt more low-information idiots to drink bleach or inject disinfectant. Lysol even put out a statement asking people not to inject their product.
The left wing activist claims are wrong. Pay attention to the facts, America. Trump did not tell people to drink bleach or inject themselves with disinfectant. Leftists are complete morons.
