Trapper John McIntyre MD is doing well. He worked in a MASH unit in the Korean War seventy years ago! He must be approaching his centenary.

Stop being a bitter loser... you know that Trump and Boris are divine Gods and can do no wrong, and should not be questioned.

Stating common sense like reading labels and knowing that disinfectants can kill is worse than blasphemy.

Andre Young is "Dr Dre" the rapper
Meredith Grey is from "Gray's Anatomy", I am not sure about the other two

That is why I use the term "research"

Although any 3 year old knows that these things are toxic

The losers will, sadly, be those who follow their President's word. People will: they did with his previous suggestions and some died. I do hope that CC knows better than to listen to his hero's advice.

I did not bother to research the other authors of the paper, but I had my suspicions!

Also not the first time in the USA that Bleach has been suggested as a cure. [

Bleach enemas were considered a way of curing your child of autism

But with a president promoting a raft of insane and unproven claims for cures, it is hardly surprising

I see Eustace at today's press conference, when asked why the government didn't publish the names of SAGE members, said it waas so that they are free of political influence.

So why on earth is Mr Cummy there?

This is where the famous ignoramus seems to have picked up this incredibly stupid idea.

Vulnerable people with cancer, Aids, influenza and malaria are being urged to drink Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) – described by the FDA as 'industrial bleach'


https://www.theguardian.com/science/2010/sep/15/miracle-mineral-solutions-mms-bleach

Revealed: leader of group peddling bleach as coronavirus 'cure' wrote to Trump this week
Mark Grenon wrote to Trump saying chlorine dioxide ‘can rid the body of Covid-19’ days before the president promoted disinfectant as treatment


Grenon styles himself as “archbishop” of Genesis II – a Florida-based outfit that claims to be a church but which in fact is the largest producer and distributor of chlorine dioxide bleach as a “miracle cure” in the US. He brands the chemical as MMS, “miracle mineral solution”, and claims fraudulently that it can cure 99% of all illnesses including cancer, malaria, HIV/Aids as well as autism.

Most people have the nous to be sceptical about these sort of snake oil sellers.

Someone mention a snake oil seller touting unproven and dangerous cures?

I wonder if Trump is finally descending into full madness. Might we even have seen the last of him when he walked out of his press briefing?

The Madness of King Donald.

Like a child he has sulked and declared the briefings are "not worth the effort"

On Saturday evening, he tweeted:

"What is the purpose of having White House News Conferences when the Lamestream Media asks nothing but hostile questions, & then refuses to report the truth or facts accurately


Of course, that depends on how you feel about the Press reporting that the President is suggesting drinking or injecting Bleach is not the truth or factual, and actually asking questions about this suggestion is "hostile"

In the US there is a growing movement for invoking the 25th Amendment. This promotes the Vice-President to President:





Many are saying that after the disinfectant debacle Trump has proven himself a danger to the public and hence unable to discharge the duties of President


We've been here before.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/sho ... es-twitter

That many will be almost entirely composed of the bitter losers who started trying to get rid of President Trump the moment he was elected.

After their impeachment fiasco they'd be advised to wait until the election. Another futile attempt to get rid of an elected president will make them look even more desperate and bitter than they already do.


Stunning... the US President suggest drinking and injecting disinfectants and you dismiss groups querying that as entirely composed of the bitter losers


Even you must see that this is not the suggestion of a sane, responsible person, and a laughing stock around the world.



He didn't.

If he's such a moron and idiot it doesn't say much for the party and candidate which lost the 2016 election to him.
