The President Is Certifiably Nuts

While the worst of the Coronavirus outbreak may have passed in the UK, with daily totals of deaths due to the infection coming down a little, and totals for other seriously affected countries like Italy and Spain also on a downward trend, there is one country where the worst is anything but over, and that is the USA. And rather a lot of the problems faced but that country are down to its leadership, or total lack of it.
Donald, where's yer hairspray?

The current President, Combover Crybaby Donald Trump, pretended the Covid-19 pandemic wasn’t happening. Then he claimed it would just go away. He also suggested it was a hoax perpetrated by the Democratic Party. And in all of this, he was enthusiastically supported by the less than stellar array of hosts on Fox News Channel (fair and balanced my arse). Alongside the wacko claims then came the equally wacko miracle cures.
This matters: when Trump says that some unproven treatment might work, many of his more impressionable supporters take it as gospel truth and run with it. Take more Vitamin C? Yep, they do that, too. He mocks the virus; they mock the virus. The difference is that, in the following weeks, many of them become seriously ill and die. From the virus.
Now has come the ultimate wacko Trump miracle cure. This is what he actually said at yesterday’s White House briefing. “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 … And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside of 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. Sounds interesting”. There was more.
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 almost a cleaning … So it'd be interesting to check that … I'm not a doctor. But I'm, like, a person that has a good you-know-what”. A good advanced case of terminal stupidity, perhaps?
Yes, the President of the United States suggested injecting disinfectant. Aaron Rupar heard it too: “Trump seems to suggests that injecting disinfectant inside people could be a treatment for the coronavirus”. Here in the UK, Adrian Heald, who you can tell as he’s a doctor, was horrified. “People, no matter what ‘the orange dude’ says, stuff that is meant of external use can harm or kill you if you ingest it or - heaven forbid - inject it. Don't take medical advise from people who haven't a basic clue”. Quite.
Nick Flaks put it in the kind of everyday language that Trump supporters might understand: “President Trump literally orders people to inject Toilet Duck into their veins, but the 2020 election is still ‘too close to call’. What a time to be alive”. Another Tweeter mused “Trump supporters waking up and mainlining toilet duck before going out to stand carrying assault rifles in front of nurses, has fair put a spring in my step this morning”.
Mike Chamberlain, meanwhile, had good and bad news. “I can say with 100% certainty that drinking toilet duck will reduce the deaths from Coronavirus. However they will be replaced by an equal number of deaths from drinking toilet duck”.

You think our leaders are bad? Well, yes they are. But Trump is off his head.

The dayglo donald blames the Chinese for spreading coronavirus. The arse has fallen out of the petrol dollar. The US economy was on a precipice since 2008 (And most likely long before)

The Chinese & Russians have been buying all the gold; the septic tanks (yanks) are indebted to those two by way of $hundreds of billions worth of bonds and when the septics can't pay up China & Russia will demand a return to the gold standard; and Christ help us if dayglo donald's reelected because that inarticulate gormless imbecile will start WWIII and annihilate the planet.

If he's reelected, we're all toilet ducked.

Trump is a "logical" product of a socioeconomic and political system not just broken but in smithereens. Eventually, if not him some other nutjob. It can get worse too now they have 30 million unemployed.

Meanwhile, the equally crackpot Brit version is run by a loose collection of empty-headed Mister Micawbers, spivs and barrow boys in Westminster and Whitehall. See SAGE.

So what price another war to assuage flag-waving dickhead gammons both sides of the Atlantic?

What's the odds on US disinfectant companies shares selling like hot cakes?

After all, US gun companies do a roaring trade after every cinema/school/concert/club massacre.

Christ, we're in a terrible state - but the USA is off the scale in madness.
