As some of our fellow citizens intentionally suffer through the daily White House press briefings, some actually pay attention to the pronouncements from P45, especially those not read verbatim from the TelePrompter. Faux News, 45’s network of choice, also publishes written (if you can believe it) articles. Here are some quotes from a recent presser concerning actions underway to combat COVID-19. First, a defense of 45’s remarks by his new Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, that the news media has taken POTUS’s statements out of context:
Leave it to the media to irresponsibly take President Trump out of context and run with negative headlines.
Yes, Kayleigh, we’re taking HIM entirely out of context, not his words.
P45’s words themselves, for you to judge as quoted by the “fair and balanced” Fox News:
Question that probably some of you are thinking of if you’re totally into that world, which I find to be very interesting. So supposing we hit the body with a tremendous, whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light. And I think you said that hasn’t been checked but you’re going to test it.
Supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way…. Sounds interesting, right?
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 gonna test that, too. Sounds interesting, right?
And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or, or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets on the lungs and it does a tremendous number, so it will be interesting to check that. So that you’re going to have to use medical doctors. But it sounds, it sounds interesting to me.
But the whole concept of the light, the way it kills it in one minute, that’s, that’s pretty powerful.
Shameful of Faux News to irresponsibly take P45’s words out of context and run with negative headlines. Can’t the mainstream media simply report the news as fairly and accurately as Faux? While no one expects a president to be a scientist, all expect the one elected to have common sense and cease causing viewers to go out of their minds with contradictions about what 45 has stated.
The exchange between Alice and the March Hare echoes the cacophony from the White House:
Hare: Then you should say what you mean.
Alice: I do at least – at least I mean what I say – that’s the same thing, you know.
