Anyone with half a brain knows Trump was being sarcastic and it won't sway voters. But of course the democrats will take it literal. The idiots.

Anonymous said...

Why would any Republican vote for some guy who is joking why people are dying. If they were smart they would primary his ass.

anon said...

More importantly Trump aimed that sarcasm at the fake news idiots in the room knowing that it doesn’t matter what he says or does it will get twisted into something outlandish because.... they’re morons who are bought and paid for courtesy of the Chinese government, look it up

What was said you fucking morons;
THE PRESIDENT: 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 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, ’cause 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 you’re going to have to use medical doctors, but it sounds interesting to me, so we’ll see. But the whole concept of the light, the way it kills it in one minute, that’s pretty powerful.

When the 2 old beachcombers found a sex-doll that had washed ashore, they agreed "We're in this together!!!"

anonymous said...

Why do they bother doing that?
Why not just clean it out of their bodies by using the UV Light "either through the skin or in some other way" directly?

I know a "Stable* Genius" said it could be done, or at least should be investigated.

(*"Stable" noun, a location in which horse shit accumulates")

Yes, I hear that Hollywood has hired her to star in a remake of "Orgy and Bess"!

Anyone with half a brain is already a Republican and Trump supporter.
51% of a brain is the minimum level for sanity.

So, 9:27, you're saying he was not being sarcastic when he said he was being sarcastic? Are you saying the Very Stable Genius is a liar?
