President Trump, in his White House coronavirus task force briefing Thursday, appeared to suggest that light and disinfectants might have the potential to treat the coronavirus — prompting a number of stories condemning the comments, others seeking to defend the president and a scathing tweet from presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The comments even prompted a statement from Reckitt Benckiser Group, the makers of Lysol, warning against improper use of disinfectant products. "As a global leader in health and hygiene products, we must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body (through injection, ingestion or any other route)," the company said

What President Trump was doing in a jocular manner was ribbing the Government scientists sitting off to his right side when he brought up disinfectants. The President, who is not a medical doctor should stop making any comments when it comes to possible future therapies and the other the medical or scientific aspects of the Administration’s response to the corona virus pandemic at those briefings and allow the medical and scientific people there with him to make those comments. The Democrats and their media allies are always out there watching, certainly with no sense of humor whatsoever, ready to pounce and mischaracterize the President’s comments and intent at a moment’s notice. No doubt we will be seeing the video of the President making that comment from now on until the election in Democrat campaign productions.

Trump appears to be a person who feels he needs to contribute to a conversation even when he is not very knowledgeable about the subject. You can do that if you are young and no one is keeping score, but public officials have to be careful. Far more judges draw unfavorable press attention and/or are reprimanded for making a stupid, off the cuff remark on the record than for any other reason. If he feels obligated to speak, all he has to say is "Interesting. I'll let the experts respond to that one."

Hedging your comments because some in the audience are too stupid, obtuse, or deliberately planning to twist anything you say is how we got to this point, with the gutless pubbies. What he said was fine. Cowering because the leftards have another fake tizzy or faint, is self-defeating and doesn't advance the ball down the field. Anyone watching, who isn't brain-dead (aka dimocrat voters) can see the juvenile noise put out by the lefties. It's fine. Keep their heads exploding, President Trump!

Trump was inarticulate, as he often is. Still, it's not a thought crime to wonder what might kill the virus. French scientists are trying nicotine patches, because few covid-19 patients are smokers. In The Andromeda Strain, a satellite crashes into a town and everybody there dies -- from an alien virus -- except for an old drunk and a baby. Why did they live? The drunk's blood was acidic from drinking Sterno, and the baby's was alkaline. Don't drink Sterno. But are there some unemployed white mice who wouldn't mind doing a study about blood pH and Covid-19?

Out here in semi-rural deplorable land ( South Louisiana), almost everyone I know is out in the sunshine and spring warmth. There are lawns to be mowed, gardens that need tending, spring house repairs to be made and convertibles to drive. PDT is right about one thing, fresh air and sunshine are good for you. We still shop, we meet and socialize on the QT and no one I know has contacted the virus. If our petty tyrant of a Parish sheriff would rescind his ridiculous curfew, it would be even more enjoyable.

At this point, I’m in favor of as many people as possible injecting Lysol (or any disinfectant) into the body. Maybe start a social media campaign that gets Democrats to start chewing on Lysol wipes like bubble gum and having their cause of death listed as, “Too stupid to live.” Might be exactly what this nation needs.

Fox puts in the work to help explain what Trump is saying to the enemedia, who go even further out of their way to mischaracterize it. Barring from the WH briefings any reporter who has misquoted the WH statements (or distorted them) might help. Then again, those reporters who are still obstinately trying to torpedo him will probably still find a way.

I saw video of the first part of what he said and thought he was semi-joking. After reading this article I'm left wondering why he talks so much about nothing and how anyone here can defend him. Everything that pops into his head does not need to come out of his mouth. Save the brainstorming for private meetings, not press conferences.

Almost anyone in the Boomer generation grew up with hanging wash outside, placing items in the sunlight to disinfect them and were told to go out and get fresh air. My inlaws slept with a window open even if snow came inside. First thing I did was place boxes and mail outside on a metal table for an afternoon.

There is at least two companies pandering on the social sites saying give children the disinfectant to cure various aliments including coronavirus. It's a scam. Trump did not say inject or ingest disinfectant.

There is simply no other way to state this. Nearly everything we’ve been told about models, rates of infection, deaths, and recoveries was inaccurate. I’m not here to argue that it was malfeasance or ignorance — both are unacceptable. But the one thing that Governor Andrew Cuomo’s stunning announcement made clear on Thursday is that there are some pretty shocking — and what should be — reassuring truths. Cuomo announced that antibody testing in New York state, which only began four days previous, was already demonstrating that at minimum 13.9% of New Yorkers, had COVID-19 late stage antibodies.

"It's not the people who vote that count, it's the people who count the votes." It may have been Stalin and it may have been Napoleon. It may have been Boss Tweed. Regardless of the original source, this truism describes government corruption and manipulation to perfection. Even in the face of a global pandemic and an unprecedented government-ordered economic shutdown, politicians are using their power to corrupt vital needed data regarding the Chinese coronavirus and its deadly toll on Americans. The latest escapade comes from America's "ground zero" for COVID-19 infections, New York, where the death tally just surpassed 10,000. Or did it?

In the fight between the governors and President Trump over who has the authority to re-open America, the politicians have it wrong. It’s not the politicians who have the power to re-open America, or at least the parts that are now closed. It’s individuals, families, businesses, and religious congregations. The politicians can help by eventually lifting lockdown orders and school closures. That will make it easier for individuals, families, businesses, and religious congregations to resume more normal patterns of activity without the hassle of a legal challenge.

A current global myth alleges that America under the Trump administration is not leading the world fight against the coronavirus in its accustomed role as the postwar global leader. Yet the U.S. was the first major nation to issue a travel ban on flights from China, with Donald Trump making that announcement on Jan. 31. That was a bold act. It likely saved thousands endangered by Chinese perfidy and soon became a global model. None of the ban's loud critics are today demanding it be rescinded.

Abrams has never been elected to an office higher than Georgia state representative, serving as minority leader in the state legislature — and she doesn’t even hold that office at the current moment.

When you think of it, it's nothing short of incredible that Joe Biden is the presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party. One might have thought 2016 would have been Biden's year (if he was ever going to have a time at bat), since Barack Obama's two-term presidency had just ended, and most vice presidents who try for the top spot do so immediately following their bosses' departures. But, as is often the case in politics these days, party nominees can result from when the party decides it's someone's "turn." That was the case the last go-around: the Democrats decided that it was Hillary's turn,

Washington—President Donald Trump said Friday that he won’t approve a $10 billion loan for the U.S. Postal Service unless the agency raises charges for Amazon and other big shippers to four to five times current rates. “The Postal Service is a joke because they’re handing out packages for Amazon and other internet companies and every time they bring a package, they lose money on it,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. The president was responding to a question about reports his administration plans to force major changes in postal operations as the price for approving a $10 billion loan that was included in the government’s $2 trillion economic rescue package.
