Fox Anchor Neil Cavuto Tears Apart Trump's 'Unsettling' Sarcasm Claim: He 'Was Not Joking'

“Wow. That is a little unsettling, folks,” Cavuto said on Friday. “Got to clarify this. The president was not joking in his remarks yesterday when he talked about injecting people with disinfectant, nor were we imagining the incredulous looks he got from his medical team when he made the suggestion.”

Cavuto gave a refresher of the comments Trump made during his Thursday coronavirus press briefing, reminding viewers that the president suggested that injecting disinfectant showed “great promise” for a coronavirus treatment. Trump later clarified that because disinfectants kill the coronavirus on surfaces, experts should test it as a way to clean inside the lungs.

“There was nothing in those comments yesterday that hinted of the dismissal he was giving today,” Cavuto remarked. “He is talking about injecting products like Lysol into your body to see if that can combat the disease. That is what he said.”

Cavuto — who spent much of his Friday show on Fox News fact checking the president — then questioned why Trump would pretend to be joking instead of just admitting his mistake, especially considering that the makers of Lysol released a public statement clarifying that the product should not, “under no circumstance,” be injected into the body.

California effort will employ restaurant workers to provide meals for seniors amid coronavirus crisis

SACRAMENTO — Gov. Gavin Newsom said the state will launch a far-reaching program to provide three meals a day to California senior citizens in need during the coronavirus pandemic, employing out-of-work restaurant workers and funded largely by the federal government. [...] The program will provide $66 a day per senior in funding for the daily meals. Newsom said the effort will launch immediately, focused on seniors who are either at risk for COVID-19 or have limited income. He said payments for the food will generate sales tax revenues to help support local government budgets that have been hit hard by the closure of retail businesses and restaurants.

Anderson Cooper stunned after Trump claims he was being ‘sarcastic’ about injecting disinfectant: ‘You just saw the president lying’

“What you just heard is the president of the United States just lying,” Cooper said. “It’s fascinating because he’s lying about something that we all witnessed just yesterday of him talking to his own coronavirus task force about research on injecting bleach, disinfectants into people, somehow cleaning them from the inside… there was no sarcasm, we have the tape.”

NYT deletes tweet suggesting that only "some experts" view ingestion of disinfectants as dangerous

Our apologizes to any of our readers who actually drank bleach.

The New York Times

We've deleted an earlier tweet and updated a sentence in our article that implied that only "some experts" view the ingestion of household disinfectants as dangerous. To be clear, there is no debate on the danger.

From Phillip Rucker: How Trump manages pandemic:

Trump responded, “Hey Phil. I’m the president, and you’re fake news. And know what I will say to you? I will say it to you very nicely because I know you well. I know the guy, I see what he writes. He is a total faker."

How Trump manages pandemic:
