He was being sarcaaaaaastic, obvs

No, Don, that’s not going to work.

President Donald Trump said Friday that his remarks on injecting disinfectants to treat COVID-19 were sarcasm, after doctors responded with horror and disinfectant manufacturers urged people not to ingest the poisonous substances.

Nope. I mean, obviously that’s just a desperate ploy, but even apart from that – we know his mannerisms, and that was not his sarcastic mode. That was his “Look how smart I am, hearing about disinfectants in the pre-briefing discussion and then thinking up a way to use them even more strongly” mode. That was his big boy in big boy pants talking about sciencey stuff with the scientists because he had this uncle who was brilliant and he’s brilliant too and can talk sciencey and make suggestions and everything mode. People are surprised! People are surprised how brilliant he is, how good at this stuff he is – we’re lucky to have his brilliant suggestions and advice and thinky questions.

“I was asking a question sarcastically to reporters just like you, just to see what would happen,” Trump said on Friday during a bill signing for the coronavirus aid package. “I was asking a sarcastic and a very sarcastic question to the reporters in the room about disinfectant on the inside. But it does kill it and it would kill it on the hands, and it would make things much better.”

He was being sarcastic and very sarcastic but also he meant it and it would TOTALLY WORK and make things much better.

Trump denied he was asking his experts to investigate the issue, and repeatedly reiterated that disinfectant on the hands and sun can damage or kill the coronavirus. He said he was urging his officials to investigate how “sun can help us.”

I mean duh. Why is everybody so stupid? Disinfectant on the hands can damage or kill the coronavirus so OBVIOUSLY it can do it in the stomach too. Clean hands, clean stomach, virus killed. Boom.
