Trump Blasts Media Who Suggested He Wanted Americans Injected with Disinfectant

Looks like the mainstream media has no idea when they’re being played.

At some point soon, the media is going to have to wise up and see that Donald Trump is playing them like a fiddle.

Yesterday during a White House coronavirus task force briefing, President Donald Trump took a little detour from the script to pontificate on possible treatments for coronavirus.  He suggested that doctors are trying all manner of treatments for the awful and contagious illness, with the President wondering aloud if maybe someone had tried injecting disinfectant into patients, or perhaps pushing UV light into their bodies via their skin.

It was an absolutely bizarre moment, but it was supposed to be.

“I was asking the question sarcastically, to reporters like you, just to see what would happen. Disinfectant, doing this on the hands, maybe would work. I was asking the question of the gentleman who was there yesterday, Bill,” Trump said in response to a question, referencing William Bryan, the acting undersecretary for science and technology at the Homeland Security Department. “I was asking a very sarcastic question to the reporters in the room about disinfectant on the inside.”

CNN’s Anderson Cooper told his audience point-black on Friday that the President was lying about his sarcasm, which seems to indicate that Cooper believes that he possesses psychic powers.

Of course the President wasn’t serious about this suggestion, and the hullabaloo conjured by the mainstream media surrounding the idea seems to only bolster the bad reputation that the infotainment industry is cultivating for itself.
