I totally understand why Trump’s lawyers threatened to sue the President’s alma mater if they ever release his academic transcript, because it would probably show he didn’t pass third-grade. In one single example of Trump’s stream-of-consciousness we get these pearls:
“So, supposing we hit the body with a tremendous – whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light – and I think you said that 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. It sounds interesting.”
“I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute! And is there a way we can do something, by an injection inside or almost a cleaning? Because 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, that you’re going to have to use medical doctors with, but it sounds interesting to me.”
For Trump supporters, dystopia sounds something like this: “The Chinese military made the virus in a lab to destroy the US economy, but we don’t need to worry, because antibiotics will kill it! If not, then just stand under a sunlamp like I do and inject yourself with bleach, alright? Alright. God bless ‘Merica.”
On a side note, Reckitt Benckiser, manufacturers of Lysol and Dettol, have sent the US President an enormous bouquet of peonies as millions of stupid-people converge in the laundry aisle of supermarkets worldwide. If I were coordinating the Democrats presidential campaign I’d be sitting quietly in the corner for a couple of days and let this thing run. Unfortunately, all the do-gooders (including lots of those ‘medical doctors’ probably) started leaping in the air almost immediately, screaming ‘For fuck’s sake! DO NOT INJECT BLEACH!’ which took all the fun out of it.
America, sucks to be you right now.
