So now we should all be injecting ourselves with Dettol - not

The Trump has outdone himself this time. Even more stupid than The Wall and his thoughts on global warming. My worry is that some people are so enamoured of him that they'll try it.

Disinfectant kill the germs, doesn't it?

Leader of the free world, people.

But yes - there are already reports of people accidentally killings themselves as a result of his moronic insights.

Dettol!! Dettoll!
This is Mumsnet OP!
Wash your mouth out with Zoflora grin

Finger on the nuclear button! shock

I did laugh when I saw that the wonderful Michael Spicer tweeted this morning that his notifications had gone ballistic overnight. I hope he does another of his Room Next Door sketches on this. Not much actual writing to do, just transcription.

I came on to post what Cary said.
That man is a blithering idiot. Dangerous lunatic.

I suspect that trump was 'inspired' by those horrifying images of people in India being sprayed with disinfectant ☹️

he's desperate to come up with a cheap and quick solution that will make this problem go away so that he can get back to pleasuring himself at the crowd on his rallies

A good swig of Twilight Garden does wonders wink

I particularly like the zoflora idea. I imagine it will scent you internally somewhat, Come out in your sweat like a strong curry. I could be walking about wafting fresh linen from my pores all the whole fighting off a deadly virus!

It is a shame he does not lead by example, just like our PM did with the hand shaking grin

Maybe we should be shining a UV light inside ourselves?

Cary2012 Fri 24-Apr-20 13:19:08

@midnightstar66 Quick, someone tell Chris Whitty! We've found the cure!

I can’t understand how someone do fucking stupid can get himself dressed in the morning let alone be president.
When I was a kid everybody looked up to America. Their films, food I even trialled an American accent one summer, now I despair.

Someone (a couple of people actually) on the recent unpopular opinions thread said that they liked and admired Trump as he "says what everyone else is thinking but is too scared to say out loud".

I do wonder what sort of mental gymnastics you'd have to perform to convince yourself that not only is "everyone" secretly a racist, misogynistic climate change denier, they're also considering injecting Dettol into themselves. I guess they think that's basically what vaccinations are.

Looking at our politicians I don't think we're in a position to laugh at anyone.

Doesn't ingestion of toxic chemicals lead to respiratory distress? So treating coronavirus by killing people with that instead seems like a good plan 🙄

Lordfrontpaw Fri 24-Apr-20 13:24:01

Sadly there will be some people who will do just as directed. Wasn't there a couple who poisoned themselves with fish medication?

Redpurplegreen Fri 24-Apr-20 13:27:03

You have to remember Trump is a troll.
This is probably his idea of natural selection by killing off people stupid enough to try it.

Sitting in my garden laughing hysterically at this. 😂😂

The80sweregreat Fri 24-Apr-20 13:34:45

Savers have their own cheaper version of Zaflora. That might be worth a go too?
I can not believe he actually said this but he did. I just hope the Americans don't try it and have a lot more sense than he does.

B1rdbra1n Fri 24-Apr-20 13:38:19

Trump is a troll
You think it's all deliberate and consciously calculated?

Lordfrontpaw Fri 24-Apr-20 13:39:39

I suspect some will just because... they won't be told what to do by some dumb doctors who are probably part of the Big Conspiracy... It's all fake news I tell ya'... Probably the same people who are refusing to stay home because...

I saw a funny meme the other day (shame I didn't copy it) - guy with a huge gun in his fallout bunker 'I can stay in here for months' - same pic of guy protesting the lockdown 'I wanna go the the hairdressers!'.

DoTheNextRightThing Fri 24-Apr-20 13:41:53

He's got a point though. If we all die from injecting Dettoll into our bloodstreams, the human race will go extinct and there will be no one left to spread Coronavirus. Crisis eliminated! Well done President Trump!
