"Notes" #3 "Really!"

Donald Trump, on April 24/20 stated:

"And is there a way we can do something like that, by injections inside or almost a cleaning," Trump said Thursday, speaking to research into the effectiveness of disinfectant wipes and other products on virus-laden saliva and respiratory fluids. "Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs. So it would be interesting to check that. So, that, you're going to have to use medical doctors with. But it sounds - it sounds interesting to me."

Really! Are you serious Mr. President? The president of the United States actually stated at his morning conference, a televised conference that is intended to inform and be helpful to the citizens of the United States, that injecting disinfectants into one's body might work as a way of combating Covid-19.

The backlash to his comments was swift and overwhelming- every medical person, front-line worker, politician, in fact every thinking person alive blurted out in shock, "Really? Are you crazy?" Even his own team, which is trying to get him re-elected has insisted, since these comments, that he be kept in quarantine and away from any microphone or media person (except Fox channel personal). No chance of that happening.

The most shocking thing to me is not that Donald Trump made the comment he did. Most of us have come to realize just how dysfunctional he is as a president and as a human being, so it is not these bizarre statements that are the problem, but rather it is the people/supporters who blindly follow such an outrageous and dangerous person. He is a person who deals with every issue and situation with an attack, a denial and a lie. He is the personification of a "Victim"- nothing is ever his fault, and yet the popularity polls hover around 50 per cent. I hope the American that I am fond of wakes up when it is time to vote.

Donald is walking out of the White House and heading toward his limo, when a possible assassin steps forward and aims a gun. A secret service agent, new on the job, shouts 'Mickey Mouse!' This startles the would-be assassin and he is captured. Later, the secret service agent's supervisor takes him aside and asks, 'What in the hell made you shout Mickey Mouse?' Blushing, the agent replies, 'I got nervous. I meant to shout 'Donald, duck!
