In response to President Trump’s daily electioneering pandemic briefing – this …

“So, supposing 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 of the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way.  And I think you said you’re going to test that too. Sounds interesting.  And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning?  So it’d be interesting to check that.”

And this – my quote of the day
Judy Melinek M.D.
Oh FFS please don’t do this.  I don’t need the extra work.  If you are sick call your doctor.  Don’t self medicate.


I have heard some, who call themselves religious, think Mr Trump is the Devil Incarnate in person here on earth.

Hmmmm …

  1. I love people who take things out of context, or snippets of what happened. As … was fond of saying, here’s the rest of the story:

    Trump’s remarks followed a presentation from William Bryan, undersecretary for science and technology at the Department of Homeland Security. Bryan presented the results of a study that showed the virus deteriorates more quickly when subjected to higher temperatures and humidity. Bryan presented data that found how long the virus can live on solid surfaces or in the air was cut significantly under high temperatures, higher humidity and when exposed to sunlight. He said his office was also studying how certain disinfectants might kill the virus more effectively than others, referencing isopropyl alcohol and bleach.

    Trump latched onto the findings, inquiring multiple times about harnessing the light and heat as part of a potential cure.

    Key word here is “inquiring”, when people hear something intriguing they tend to speculate, he just does so out loud. He is, after all, a performer.

    • You certainly have a different style of briefing! We tend to prefer ‘inquiring minds’ – offering personal musings – done away from the cameras! As for performers … ? Not sure if he does or can

        • That they do – here as well.

          Our daily briefings amaze me: day after day the bods on the podium get asked many inane questions – yet the answers are respectful and considered, never emotive and always specific.

          The other change is for a “virtual gathering” of reporters via a big screen (one on the screen at a time). The length of “question” is very noticeable without the usual scrum – along with the opportunity for the lead politician to answer as they like and announce “Next … ” (without the usual scrum)
