Lysol Producer Says Do Not Ingest or Inject to Fight Coronavirus

Source: Mediaite

The British company that makes Lysol, and other disinfectants, released a public statement imploring consumers NOT to administer their disinfectant products in the human body. The remarkable statement comes hours after President Donald Trump curiously suggested some medically questionable remedies to the deadly Covid-19 contagion behind the coronavirus pandemic.

During Thursday night’s regular White House briefing from the coronavirus task force, President Trump suggested that household bleaching agents in most surface disinfectants to a possible internal treatment for humans, which would be toxic and possibly fatal.

“Then I see the disinfectant, one minute. Is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside, or almost a cleaning,” Trump noted. “Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs. So it’d be interesting to check that so that you’ll have to use medical doctors with. But it sounds interesting to me. So we’ll see, but the whole concept of the light, where it goes in one minute. That’s pretty powerful.”

Reckitt Benckiser Group is a British multinational consumer goods company that produces Lysol among many other disinfecting household goods, directly responded to Trump’s comments, writing “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).”

5. If they were stupid enough to vote for him, they're stupid enough

...to drink/inject the stuff on his word alone.

And then, of course, their survivors would sue the manufacturers for "not warning" them.

(Also, while the prospect of trumpkins eliminating themselves en masse gives me a warm cozy feeling in my tum-tum, I'm still having a hard enough time getting my hands on disinfectants as it is.)

No doubt being funded by George Soros to discredit our great President.

My family is off to Wal-Mart today to buy some syringes and a couple of gallons of Clorox bleach. No one in this family is getting COVID!

8. The media is still handling the f@#%$# moron with kid gloves...

Take this for instance...

"President Donald Trump curiously suggested..."

1) Was added at the recent request of the current acting Press Secretary among others.

2) Curiously? CURIOUSLY? Oh, come on! The man is a F@#$#@@@ MORON! Come out and say it. Even mentioning such an insane idea as somehow ingesting cleaning products by someone of his stature in a nationally televised press briefing is criminally irresponsible at the very least. START.CALLING.HIM.ON.IT! Or, you're no better than he is. People will die! Is that what you want?

25. And the doctors too! Every doc at the presser should have jumped up, taken the microphone away

from him, and told the audience to NEVER inject or drink any kind of cleaning fluid. That it would make them ill or dead. And then they should have turned their faces to Trump and said, "Stop that nonsense! Right now!"

stop this madness, not even the doctors, who, FFS, make great money and can afford to be retired/fired/etc. in order to uphold science and reason in the face of this madness. Why are they all so cowardly when faced with a starkly clear moral choice?

out of a job. This is why I can't understand all this. If anyone can stand up, it would be high earners like her who will never be out of a job.

Legal term for this? 'Malice aforethought' might apply.

But before you do, admit you see your chances of a second term slipping away, admit the country is in need of leadership you can't muster, and admit you are desperate!

Why waste perfectly good Kool-aid when mixing up your injectable or ingestable virus exterminating disinfectant brew? Just use automotive antifreeze! It tastes good (sweet), it comes in attractive colors, and it's sure to be death for all viruses.
