I took Trumps advice and had a bath in Lysol and instead of drying with a towel, I dried with a hair dryer to kill the virus. I'm now protected for the day.

Nice one! But thats only for the day? Maybe if you chugged a couple of pints Lysol its protection may last a bit longer... a week even? maybe pop a few UV pills too.... its works better from inside apparently...

Yes, but there are those out there who might just do that in the misguded belief that Trump can do no wrong.
After the initial Trump hydroxychloroquin claim, a couple mixed some pills used to treat fish that contained a variant of the stuff in a drink in the mistaken belief it'd protect them. Husband died, wife poorly.

I don't think people bash Trump anymore. He's a joke now. People laugh at him, of course, but that's not the same as taking someone's opinion seriously and attacking it, or them.

His suggestions now are stupid enough that one's sympathy for his followers is exhausted. People who drink bleach or Kool-Aid because some prat told them too are the figures of idiocy one uses when speaking to small children "if the President told you to stick your head in a gas oven, would you do it?"

The man's mad... but to misquote you I'd pose another question...
"if the President told you to invade Iran, would you do it?"
There are those that would.... without question....

People would do it, of course, that's why it's foolish to elect buffoons like Trump and Johnson.

I heard about that, I thought they both died. Sadly there are people out there that are cu off from the real world and think "oh the president said it, it must be right" those are the people that will blindly vote for him AGAIN!

I can't imagine why anyone would want to bash Trump. It's not as if he says anything stupid or dangerous after all.

A colleague of my husband sent him an email a while back advising that he should get this drug...I immediately said “ what a load of rubbish” but I feel my husband was a bit miffed, as he thought he had heard something good...had he been able, he would have bought it, whatever the cost, taken it, and probably died!

One could of course look at the bigger political picture...Trump should be encouraged with his economy saving medical advice...Lysol and anti malaria treatments provided for everyone who would believe a word that came out of the man's mouth, and certainly for all the yahoos in Georgia desperate for a tattoo or a nail bar...and then come the election he might not have a majority - it's one way of votre fixing...

You may need to be a bit more specific

I've had a rummage but nothing seems obvious
