The MSM claims calls to poison control centers have increased due to President Trump’s ‘disinfectant’ comments… But that’s fake news.
The CDC released a report this week about increased exposure to harmful toxins through the increased use of household cleaners, and people have used the report to hit Trump, even though the CDC’s data stops at March 31, Nolan Brown reported.
After President Donald Trump’s Thursday comments regarding UV light and disinfectant went viral (with left-wing pundits and media outlets claiming he told people to inject themselves with disinfectant and drink bleach), multiple news agencies reported local spikes in calls to poison control. As with the inflated claims about what Trump said, the idea that people started injecting themselves with household cleaner were overblown and falsified.
As Reason’s Elizabeth Nolan Brown reported, however, that was not the case.
“[T]he article makes no mention of anyone deliberately consuming household cleaners. It simply states that 30 people called the city’s poison control hotline ‘over fears that they had ingested bleach or other household cleaners,’” Nolan Brown reported. “Fearing that you ingested something doesn’t jibe with having intentionally consumed that substance.” More
More lies from the MSM who hate our country, and could care less about Americans. Any person who is foolish enough to inject themselves with a clear poison with the irrational notion that it would help them has to be a Democrat. They must be the same idiots that had to be told not to eat the Tide pods.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
