MSM Pushing The *Trump Said Inject Lysol* Story

My first thought upon seeing the video was Look, that's it. I realize the Dems will wreck the country, but that's it. No matter how bad they are, Trump's just no longer an option.
   Then I re-watched it. Jesus Christ it's painful. Pure cringe, especially the shot that you sometimes see, from the side, with Birx right there fighting to find some way to keep herself from exploding at the stupidity of what the guy is saying... And he just...keeps...going...
   But, no. He's not saying to inject Lysol.
   What he's saying seems like abject dumbassery. But he's absolutely, positively not recommending that anyone inject cleaning products.
   That's just a lie.
   He's not even recommending that we research that.
   What he says is:
“I see the disinfectant that 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? As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that.”[my emphasis]
   He's jabbering about finding some way to clean the virus out of the body in a way "almost" "something like" the way disinfectants clean it off of surfaces.
   And when asked about what he meant a few minutes later he clearly indicates that he's not saying to inject fucking Lysol.
   It seems embarrassingly stupid/ignorant...though, honestly I can't rule it out that some legit medical researcher somewhere might say "Yeah, we're actually investigating something that isn't entirely unlike that." I mean, you hear weird, unlikely analogies all the time from that world. (It's like a guided's like starving the microbe...) But at any rate: it just sounds stupid as hell to the layperson's ear--and, I'd guess...but it is a guess...also to all legit medical researchers.
   I mean..he almost seems to think that he might have some kind of pulled-out-of-his-ass idea that's going to make researchers sit up and say "We...we never thought of it like that before!!! To the Bat-lab!" (na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na...)

[1] He is absolutely, positively not recommending that anyone inject Clorox.
[2] He isn't even recommending researching that--or almost certainly not.
   He's recommending researching something analogous to that.
   It's dumb (probably...). It's weird that he'd go on about that in such a context. It's cringey/embarrassing... But it's not what progressives and their media wing are saying it was.
   And yet again we see the same lessons we have seen over and over and over again:
[A] There's plenty t criticize about the real Trump.
[B] But that isn't good enough for progressives, who simultaneously:
[i] Claim that Trump is horrible beyond belief
[ii] Insist on ignoring what he actually says, making up worse shit, and criticizing that
[C] In the process, they themselves end up creating the (largely fictional) grounds for panic, the flames of which they then hysterically fan.
   Trump's a problem. There's just no doubt about it. But instead of addressing that problem honestly and helping to keep the country on an even keel--instead of honestly reporting on what he says and does--they are partisan hacks, and work every day to make him and what he says and does seem worse than they are. They're ok if they panic the country--in fact, that's pretty clearly their goal.
   Trump's a goddamn mess. But he's currently what stands between us--and what remains of America--and a secular cult pushing the most dangerous social/political/cultural insanity I've seen here in my lifetime.
   But there's no surprise here--or there shouldn't be. This is the faction that invented and flogged Russiagate for two solid years. Trump's ostentatious, in-your-face dumbassery is hard to ignore--not that you should ignore it. The insanity on the other side is deeper and wider and crazier by something akin to an order of magnitude.
