Lysol This

To GOP folks.  Your leader wants you to stick a flashlight up your arse and take a couple of tablespoons of Lysol to get rid of COVID-19.  For now, Commentary will stick to the less invasive Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo’s order to cover your face and social distance.

From the Daily Beast today:

Here’s a sentence you probably never expected to read—the manufacturer behind disinfectants Lysol and Dettol has pleaded with the public to ignore the president of the United States and refrain from drinking their toxic heavy-duty cleaning products. During the Thursday coronavirus press briefing, President Trump pondered, out loud and in front of several television cameras, whether injecting disinfectant into human bodies could be a good way to fight the deadly virus. On Friday, the maker of Lysol said that due to “recent speculation,” it wanted to urge people not to ingest their disinfectants. “We must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body (through injection, ingestion or any other route,)” the Reckitt Benckiser Group told The Washington Post, adding: “Please read the label and safety information.”

A tragic embarrassment.  The failures of GOP leaders are epic.

It is funny.  The Lysol label says it’s “clinically guaranteed.” You know some MAGA folks are going to try it.

From the gruesome stat department:  Each US COVID-19 infection equals 29 US jobs lost. As of today.

Texas State Rep. Gene Wu was on the “Today” show this morning here: https://www.today.com/video/threats-against-asian-americans-are-on-the-rise-amid-coronavirus-crisis-82510405969?playlist=mmlsnnd_todayarchivesfriday.

Nice job, Representative!

Go check out Alicia Keys’ “Good Job” which she performed last night on CNN.

On the NFL Draft last night, I only watched up until the first pick was made.

Stay safe this weekend and look out for others.
