Remember, the Cure can’t be worse than the problem itself. Be careful, be safe, use common sense!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 25, 2020
If he's trying to say injecting disinfectants and sticking ultraviolet bulbs where the sun don't shine is not a good idea, I think he could be a bit more explicit. After all, those are both "cures" which are worse than the disease (since the "cure" will cure the disease only by killing you first). Then again, does he even know what he's saying, or has said?

Does he just live in a world completely disconnected from reality? Does he just think reality is whatever he says it is?
That wouldn't be obtuse; that would be madness. Europe suffered kings like that because they were kings. We supposedly did them one better; once upon a time, anyway.
