President Trump once again resorted to the “just joking” defense he uses when one of his comments becomes impossible to defend https://t.co/aqscPcFHOi— New York Magazine (@NYMag) April 24, 2020
“The plan was to stress during the daily WH coronavirus briefing that disinfectants should be used on surfaces but then...the president took the briefing information on disinfectant and sunlight and appeared to do some ‘deductive reasoning’ that it could be injected into people.” https://t.co/8jzr0lNYYt— Laura Rozen (@lrozen) April 24, 2020
he didn’t misunderstand, he just decided to offer some totally dangerous riffing why can’t it be used on people, the scientists should check into it.— Laura Rozen (@lrozen) April 24, 2020
If your son or daughter came home from practice and said that coach told players that injecting disinfectant might keep them from getting sick during the season, would you let your kid keep playing under the same coach?— stuart stevens (@stuartpstevens) April 24, 2020
Shout out to all of the fringe media outlets who feverishly scrambled all night to claim Trump didn't say to inject disinfectant, or that he was referencing some obscure UV light treatment, only to be kneecapped at noon by the president, who now says he was just kidding.— Ben Collins (@oneunderscore__) April 24, 2020
