A.  Donald Trump: The Medical Doctor Who Will Save the World.

“So, supposedly when we hit the body with a tremendous, whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light, and I think you said that hasn’t been checked, but you’re going to test it. And then I said supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way. Sounds interesting, right? And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning 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’re going to have to use medical doctors with, but it sounds interesting to me.”

 

B. Donald Trump: The Sarcastic Jokester.

Ayesha Rascoe: Mr. President, can you clarify your comments about injections of disinfectant? They were quite provocative.

Donald Trump: No, I was asking a question sarcastically to reporters like you just to see what would happen. Now, disinfectant for doing this maybe on the hands would work. And I was asking the question of the gentleman who was there yesterday, Bill, because when they say that something will last three, or four hours, or six hours, but if the sun is out or if they use disinfectant, it goes away in less than a minute. Did you hear about this yesterday? But I was asking 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 that would make things much better. That was done in the form of a sarcastic question to the reporters. Okay?

Rascoe: But you were asking your medical experts to look into it.

Donald Trump: No, no, no.

Rascoe: Were you being sarcastic with them?

Donald Trump: To look into whether or not sun and disinfectant on the hands, but whether or not sun can help us because he came in yesterday and he said they’ve done a big study. This is a study. This isn’t where he hasn’t done it. This is where they’ve come in with a final report that sun has a massive impact negatively on this virus. In other words, it does not live well with humidity and it doesn’t live well with sun, sunlight, heat. It doesn’t live well with heat, and sun, and disinfectant. And that’s what I brought out, and I thought it was clear. Okay, anything else?

The shocking suggestion of a powerful light and disinfectant in the A narrative was made on April 23, 2020, by the President of the United States. This man who speaks with the authority of a medical doctor who will save the world is going to kill his followers.

I ask the reader to compare the narrative of A with B. The audience that hears these briefings on any given day is about 8.5 million.

I believe most of us value and respect certain qualities in humans, including character and honesty.We all should demand these qualities from a US President.These dialogues were wrong, irresponsible and dangerous.And this came at a time we need a leader during this pandemic, not a person who lies to us, pretends to be a medical doctor one day and a jokester the next day.
