Did Trump really suggest injecting disinfectants for COVID-19?

Trump suggested to a doctor during the press briefing that disinfectant could be injected into the body as a cleaning agent…and the world lost it!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚Many reporters are WARNING the public to avoid INGESTING bleach or Lysol, when he clearly used INJECTION and not INGESTION.

This is one out of many ways we all tend to obscure others’ words. We can all have a tendency to listen JUST to respond because our emotions are all over the place and we don’t care to listen for intent or illumination.

If we take away our own personal opinions of Trump and our own programmed word associations, maybe we can gain some intellect instead of shooting the messenger? Besides, Trump is a senior citizen! I would love to believe he meant well by asking this question.

As I’ve stated before, I have been studying word etymology, word play, and political double speak for some time.

By definition, disinfectants are “antimicrobial agents designed to inactivate or destroy microorganisms on inert surfaces.”

A disinfectant is “an agent that frees from infection.”

“Disinfectants work by destroying the cell wall of microbes or interfering with their metabolism.”

Although a virus does NOT have a cell wall, a virus is considered a microbe! And by ETYMOLOGY, a disinfectant is an “agent used for destroying the germs of infectious diseases.”

We normally associate an antibiotic as an agent that frees our body from infection internally and an antiseptic as an agent that destroys microorganisms on living tissue externally.

And we are aware that we can INJECT antibiotics into our bloodstream for bacterial infections. But, did we know that antiviral injections have also been successful in other viral classifications? There are numerous peer reviewed medical studies that support this finding. Feel free to study for yourself.

Sooooo….was Trump actually referring to the use of antiviral injections when he referred to injecting disinfectants? Is it “silly” to suggest injecting an antimicrobial agent into the body?

Also, what did he mean by hitting the body with ultraviolet light? Could he  have been referring to Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI)? If this technique is used to purify water, food, and air…then what about the body?

When your skin is exposed to sunlight, it makes vitamin D from cholesterol. The sun’sultraviolet B (UVBrays hit cholesterol in the skin cells, providing the energy for vitamin D synthesis to occur.

Did you know that UV light has been successfully used to treat vitamin D deficiency? Did you know that vitamin D via exposure to sunlight and cod liver oil was used to treat patients with tuberculosis before antibiotics were created?

Vitamin D plays an important part in the innate antimicrobial response.

There have been multiple cross-sectional studies associating lower levels of vitamin D with increased infection. One report studied almost 19,000 subjects between 1988 and 1994. Individuals with lower vitamin D levels (<30 ng/ml) were more likely to self-report a recent upper respiratory tract infection than those with sufficient levels, even after adjusting for variables including season, age, gender, body mass and race


Why did the media automatically attack him for assuming he misused the word ‘disinfectant’ instead of focusing on the meat of the message?

The lesson I took from all of this….

1. Trump’s IQ may be higher than we believe! Maybe he capitalized off of the fact that the “fake news media,” as he so sarcastically puts it, always spins his words. But in reality, this was the perfect method to increase the dialogue and discover that this virus has very attainable and AFFORDABLE solutions that aren’t being broadcasted.

Some INGESTIBLE/EDIBLE remedies as an alternative to injectable antivirals include:
– Garlic
– Green tea
– Cinnamon
– Sage
– Ginger
– Oregano
– Licorice

2. Can’t judge a book by its cover! Look within and you will most likely find some value. Better yet, let’s stop judging ourselves so critically! Because overt criticism is usually a reflection of our own scrutiny of ourselves. Let’s look within and find our own unique values that way we can easily see the beauty and brilliance in others.

3. Sometimes we can’t see the forest for the trees. We miss the overall picture by zooming in on minor discrepancies.

4. Clarification benefits society as a whole more than crucification. We get nowhere by tearing each other down.

5. If we disregard a person’s words because we can’t get past a perceived “character flaw” or indifferent personality, then we have already lost. It’s socially acceptable to hate Trump. It’s unpopular to listen to his words to see for ourself if he has good intentions.

6. Someone will take this ENTIRE post and conclude that I must be a Trump supporter instead of researching/fact-checking the points presented above. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I always say…There’s beauty in DIVERSITY. We don’t have to look, think, talk, or believe the same in order to unite OR formulate solutions together. Differences help us to learn new perspectives and THAT is how we grow. Before you ridicule someone for being different, think about what you could learn from them.
