Bleach

We often say there is no such thing as a stupid question but, like so many things we often say, it’s not literally true. When Trump made his statement today about disinfectant to cure the coronavirus, he was, indeed, asking a question. Well, more of a rambling speculation, really.
It was enough to cause the CDC to make a formal statement that people should not be shooting up bleach, no matter what the crazy old man said.
And, of course, Trump lied about it later, saying it was sort of a prank, just to see how people would react, which is a defense that stopped working for most of us in about the 4th grade. And it’s obviously not true. There are things like tone of voice that we can analyze.
Trump actually thought he was asking an intelligent question, and doesn’t understand why so many people are mocking him.
His supporters are defending him, saying he never actually suggested that people with coronavirus should tie off a vein, boil some bleach up in a spoon, and inject it into their arm behind the dumpster in an alleyway like a heroin addict, that’s all just media hype, he was just asking a question.
Yes, bless your hearts, he was. A very, very stupid question. From which you should be able to tell that he’s a very, very stupid person.

    If you study the transcript you can fairly clearly see he was talking about light when he referred to “the disinfectant” though he could have picked a better word than injection for getting light into lungs. Light therapy is a real thing. See FDA and NIH for more info.

    “So, supposing we hit the body, with a tremendous, uuuh, whether it’s ultra violet or just a very powerful LIGHT, and I think you (he addresses Dr Brix*) said that hasn’t been checked and 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, uuuh, in some other way, and I think you* said you’re going to test that too? Right, 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, for that you’re going to have to use medical doctors, 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.”

    Not a dumb question, just clumsy wording.
