Pelosi Claims Trump Is 'Asking People To Inject Lysol Into Their Lungs'


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is accusing President Trump of telling people to inject their own lungs with household cleaners to stave off or treat COVID-19, despite the fact that the president never made such a claim, much less request.

During a press conference Friday, Pelosi said Trump is “asking people to inject Lysol into their lungs.”

“Well, it’s an indication,” Pelosi said. “The president is asking people to inject Lysol into their lungs and Mitch is saying that states should go bankrupt. It’s clear… visible, within 24 hours, of how the Republicans reject science and reject governance.”

Pelosi, who routinely denies the humanity of unborn children and supports the notion that there are more than two genders, added that, “If you don’t believe in science and you don’t believe in governance… that’s their approach, and we do not want more government than we need, but we know that governance has a role, and we know that science has a role. Without science in our decision-making, we are not going to be on a very successful path.”

It should be noted for the 70 billionth time, of course, that Trump never suggested, much less “asked” people to shoot up with Lysol, but merely questioned – albeit in a graceless, layman’s way – whether the properties in disinfectants and UV light that have shown such resiliency in beating back the virus could be harnessed in medical ways to treat COVID-19 patients from the inside out. 

Despite the obvious intent of his statement, the media naturally seized upon the chance to accuse the president of telling people to inject themselves with household cleaners, so much so that Reckitt Benckiser, the parent company of Lysol products, issued a statement telling people that under no circumstances should they ingest their products.
