Mainstream media reporters have completely lost their minds as they are now reporting that ‘Trump suggests injecting bleach or getting a suntan will cure Coronavirus’
Fake News: President Donald Trump suggested injecting people with disinfectant to cure coronavirus.
Fact Check: False. Trump was speaking generally about new information about sunlight, heat, and disinfectant killing the virus.
Fake News Gotta Fake News
The Fake News Media, as usual, is quoting President Trump out of context in order to accuse him of suggesting injecting people with disinfectant as a way of curing coronavirus infections.
At Thursday’s, Coronavirus briefing, Dr. Bill Bryant, leader of the Science and Technology Directorate at the Department of Homeland Security, described the results of new government research that showed that the coronavirus did not survive long in solar light, warmer temperatures, and more humid conditions. He added that disinfectants had also been effective against it.
Trump, responding to that presentation by noting that there had been discussions of testing ultraviolet light on patients, or of methods to bring light inside the body.
“And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it [the virus] out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside, or almost a cleaning, cause you see it gets in the lungs.”
Trump did use the word “inject,” but what he meant was using a process — which he left “medical doctors” to define — in which patients’ lungs might be cleared of the virus, given new knowledge about its response to light and other factors.
At no time did Trump actually propose injecting patients with disinfectant; he deferred to “medical doctors” to figure out how to apply Dr. Bryant’s research.

Trump later turned to Dr. Deborah Birx and asked:
“I would like you to speak to the medical doctors to see if there’s any way that you can apply light and heat to cure, you know, if you could.
“Maybe you can, maybe you can’t, I’m not a doctor.”
When ABC News’ Jonathan Karl another fake news award winner asked Dr. Bryant about whether the president had proposed injecting a person with “bleach and isopropyl alcohol” later, Trump clarified that “It wouldn’t be through injection,” and that he was talking about “cleaning, sterilization of an area,” and about applying the disinfectant to “a stationary object.”
But no matter what President Trump says, fake news gotta fake news, so they report not on what he said but that the media thinks Donald Trump was actually trying to say.
