  • >> People are still drinking bleach because they think it will cure their ailments caused

  • by Coronavirus. So why would anyone think that? Where would anyone get that idea? I

  • wonder. >> I see the disinfectant 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 because you see gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous

  • number in the lung. So it be interesting to check that almost a cleaning and sterilisation

  • of an area. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn't work, but it certainly has a big effect if

  • it's on the stationary object.

  • Now, I was asking a question sarcastically to reporters like you just to see what would

  • happen. But I was asking it sarcastically in a very sarcastic question to the reporters

  • in the room about disinfectant on the inside. But it does kill it and it would kill it on

  • the hands and that would make things much better.

  • That was done in the form of a sarcastic question to the reporters.

  • >> So this has really led to dozens of people literally consuming bleach and other disinfectants

  • because they think that it's actually gonna help cure them from Coronavirus. We're seeing

  • reports from Texas and Georgia, let's start with Texas.

  • Following 46 cases of bleach ingestions in the North Texas poison center region since

  • the start of August. Meaning this month, just this month 46 people this month in North Texas

  • alone. Experts are again warning people that drinking the chemical won't prevent COVID-19.

  • Christina Holloway, who serves as the education manager for the North Texas Poison Center,

  • said the following.

  • We certainly are not used to seeing bleach ingestion, so it's not like this was a problem

  • before Trump, at least that frequently in such a short amount of time. And we do know

  • in general this year compared to last, we're seeing a whole lot more of bleach exposures.

  • The FDA, and I can't believe that this needs to be reported, but it is. The FDA has long

  • warned that drinking chlorine dioxide products can lead to severe vomiting, severe diarrhea,

  • life-threatening low blood pressure caused by dehydration, and acute liver failure. But

  • Texas isn't the only state that's experiencing this.

  • Just recently, Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia had to issued a statement urging people to

  • stop drinking bleach. Here's a part of his statement where he says chlorine dioxide is

  • a bleach like cleaning agent and if ingested, can have severe adverse health effects, including

  • death. >> A lot of people were debating whether Trump

  • should be wearing a mask, or talking about a national mask mandate.

  • And some on the left were like, well, his supporters, that they don't wanna wear masks

  • anyways. No, they'll do whatever he says, they'll pretty much do whatever he says. And

  • him wearing a mask if he were to be pushing it if he were to be talking about social distancing

  • on a regular basis.

  • It really could have made an untold difference in terms of lives saved and costs and the

  • economy and everything. But again, the theme that I keep coming back to you with him is

  • all he cares about is the marketing of the pandemic, how it reflects on him personally,

  • and his presidency.

  • It's all a marketing arm of Trump incorporated. So it's put out this fire, put out this fire,

  • put out this fire as opposed to, addressing the pandemic. And two is that he can't think

  • long term he has something wrong with his frontal lobe, he cannot, well maybe that's

  • not the right lobe, and I shouldn't say that.

  • >> Girl, what you can go ahead and critique every single lobe in that head of his because

  • each one of them has an issue so. >> Yeah.

  • >> Frontal lobe, yeah, go ahead. >> Lots of limpy lobes in Trump's brain.

  • >> Yeah, there's just not much going on up there, so he cannot think long term.

  • And he can't think maybe if I just weather this and push mask wearing or stop telling

  • people to drink bleach, then wow maybe Coronavirus could be defeated. And then I could get reelected,

  • but no, he doesn't think that way. He just thinks of it-

  • >> No' he doesn't.

  • >> In terms of addressing the next immediate problem and usually quite badly.

>> People are still drinking bleach because they think it will cure their ailments caused
