Health officials: Man drank toxic cleaning product after Trump’s comments on disinfectants

For everyone who asks me why the off hand ignorant comments of #45 matter, here is why.   People sadly believe this person, they think he is smart and educated because other presidents have been.  They think he tells the truth, why I don’t know.  They follow his advice, as wrong as it is.   Hugs

Health officials: Man drank toxic cleaning product after Trump’s comments on disinfectants

Since Trump mentioned Thursday that researchers were looking at the effects of disinfectants on the virus and wondered aloud if they could be injected into people, the Kansas Poison Control Center has reported a 40 percent increase in cases involving cleaning solutions, the Wichita Eagle reported.

“A fellow over the weekend drank a product because of the advice he’d received,” said Lee Norman, a Kansas health officer.

Norman didn’t reveal exactly whose advice the man was following, but the incident unfolded just days after Trump said “it would be interesting to check” if injecting disinfectants can prevent the coronavirus from doing a “tremendous number on the lungs.”

Trump’s remarks prompted immediate concern from the parent company of Lysol disinfectant.

“As a global leader in health and hygiene products, 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),” said the statement from Reckitt Benck

By the way all health officials are warning that drinking bleach and other toxic chemicals is dangerous and can cause serious health problems including death.   Hugs

    Hi Scottie;
    I just realized something uncomfortable; These same people we have been having logical rational arguments with in hopes of swaying their opinion drank bleach, because he said we should use disinfectant and shine lights inside the body to kill a virus. I’ve a thought that we are wasting time on the truly lost.

    hugs

      Hello Randy. We have to hope not all of them have slipped that far down into the rabbit hole. We have to hope some of them will grab the life line. The ones who swim away from the shore then we have to just watch them go trying to make sure they can not drown anyone else as they go down. Hugs

    Our sociopath POTUS acts without compunction, nothing outside his tiny world matters in that sycophantic virtual reality that Trumpers love to share.

      Hello Bill. More and more it is clear there is a class divide in the US between the powerless have-nots, and the powerful have-it-alls. tRump and family are in a place all their own where reality seems not to matter much. Hugs

    Scottie, and this is why if the president has nothing of value to add, he should stop talking. When he later claims he was being sarcastic (which is humorous and sad in its own right), he fails to realize his statements are in the public domain and have an echo effect. His followers do not realize an obvious truth – the president has a hard time with the truth (that is being generous).

    I am reminded of the echo effect we still have today of women having silicon injecting directly into their posteriors to look more like Beyoncé. Time and again, doctors say please do not do this. Talk show hosts talk about women who have had parts of their posteriors amputated to save their lives. So, it is incredibly dangerous when the president abuses the gravitas of the position.

        Nan, Trump has several ways he screws up. The disinfectant ingestion is just plain inane and unforced. When he babbles, he tends to bobble. This is a key reason Republican Senators want him to stop doing the press conferences.

        By the way, I would love your and Scottie opinion on my post on the best metaphor for the Trump presidency. I stopped at a dirty dozen choices. Keith

          Hello Keith. I will try to get over to your blog later today. I have not been feeling well and so have been offline most of the last three or four days. I want to get to everyone’s comments I missed and then I will see. Hugs

      Hello Keith. If he has nothing of value to offer, he should stop talking is funny. Because he never has anything of value to say and he will never shut up. I think he really desires to be the center of attention and doesn’t care a bit about his contradictory statements. In his mind what ever he is spouting at that very minute. I think he has been able to make his reality what ever he has wanted to all his life, and recently got his way in the Senate impeachment vote, he really does think what he says is law. Hugs

        Thanks Scottie. I hope you are feeling better. I agree not having anything of value to say has never stopped Trump. I think we need to have prepared witticisms when we the situation presents itself from a Trump supporter.
        – If we hear “he is just rough around the edges,” we can respond, “it is far more than that, I don’t mind candor, I just don’t like my president lying so much.”
        – if we hear “he is just saying what he thinks,” we can say “the problem he is he needs to think more before he speaks.”
        – if we hear “he is the best president ever,” we can say, “we must have different measuring sticks, because he seems to be more corrupt and untrustworthy for my tastes.”
        Keith

          Hello Keith. Wow what a long day. Yes I am feeling better thank you, but life is intruding to keep me busy and away from the computer. I plan to spend the rest of the evening just trying to catch up on the comments I love. As I was working around the house and doing the things I needed to do I was listening to the news. The gaslighting of tRump has reached North Korean epic levels and I am not sure his followers can tell the difference any more between reality, truth, and what tRump claims. Right wing media is so loud and strong now that armed protesters shouting at police, ( remember blue lives matter ) and a governor having to rescind his mask order due to physical threats to store clerks, this is violent terrorism. The right now glories in it. The Christian evangelicals revel in it. They see this as a reordering of the US in their priorities. I really worry that these are the new brown shirts. The proud boys started out but tRump claimed he had the police and bikers, the tough guys, on his side at one rally. The time to be intellectual about tRump is past now. I just sent to my blog that a security guard at a dollar store was shot and killed for asking a customer to wear a face mask. Hugs

    This is what happens when we have a POTUS without an internal monologue. He doesn’t even just “say the loud part quiet and the quiet part loud”: he says EVERYTHING that’s ever popped into his head (or tweets it). And this guy is supposed to get a security clearance and deal with classified stuff?

    Wake me up when November gets here.

      Hello TheChattyIntrovert. Worse he gives security clearances to people who can not get them the normal way. I have had pretty high clearances, and they take a lot of paperwork, and if you have to refile multiple times that is a huge red flag, you most likely will be denied. Yet Jared among others have had to refile so many amended documents that they clearly are lying until they get caught. His daughter never even went through the entire process, he just started handing out clearances where he wanted his people and family to have. The US is now such a security risk, from his using an unsecured phone to doing so much sensitive government business in the white house and out on golf courses while at his own businesses, that foreign governments who are our “allies” do not share their most secret info with us. Israel got caught setting up cell phone mining equipment all around tRump properties, and if they did it you dang well know our enemies have. Russian submarines regularly sit off Florida in West Palm Beach were Mar-a-largo is and they do not even try to hide. Our country in three years when from world leader to world pariah and a laughing stock. Even if tRump loses the election his stooges in all levels of government will be a security risk for generations. Hugs
