Howard Stern says Trump should inject Clorox on live TV to see if his theory works: 'Let him volunteer'
'Do the world a favor. You don’t want to be president. Go work at Mar-a-Lago. Have a nice rest of your life,' said Stern
Howard Stern took to his Sirius XM's show on Monday, April 27, saying US President Donald Trump should resign over his comments regarding injecting disinfectants to cure the deadly coronavirus that has gripped the world.
The president had made the remark about disinfectants during a press conference on Thursday, April 23, when he seemed to suggest that coronavirus could be cured by using UV light inside the body and by injecting disinfectants.
Reacting to this on his show, Stern said, "Boy, oh boy, I got to tell my buddy Donald Trump, Jesus Christ resign from the presidency. Do the world a favor. You don’t want to be president. Go work at Mar-a-Lago. Have a nice rest of your life. This guy is out of his f-cking mind. I don’t know what Donald is doing. I mean, when he holds a press conference, it’s like you go oh f-ck."
He went on to say that he doesn't know "whats going on with Donald". "I don’t know what to say what’s going on with Donald. I mean, these statements are idiotic. Hey, I have this idea. Maybe since Clorox works on surfaces, couldn’t they just pour Clorox into your a**hole," Breitbart reported.
"I would love it if Donald would get on TV and take an injection of Clorox and let’s see if his theory works. Let him volunteer. Or hold a big rally, say f-ck this coronavirus, with all of his followers and let them hug each other and kiss each other and have a big, big rally," Stern continued.
His co-host chimed in saying, "a big cocktail of disinfectant" to which Stern added, "Yeah, and all take disinfectant and all drop dead." Trump had been a regular guest on Stern's show before he had become POTUS. At the time, the show had been infamous for its extreme shock value and its eyebrow-raising treatment of women.
We had previously reported that Trump's closest aides were also shocked at his comments on injecting disinfectants blamed his remarks on an eagerness for the president to deliver some positive news amid the coronavirus pandemic. The comments were subject to global mockery with many health experts quickly pointing out the dangers of consuming disinfectant.
During a briefing on April 23, he had said, "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. So we'll see. But the whole concept of the light, the way it kills it in one minute, that's, that's pretty powerful." His comments drew massive outrage and backlash across social media platforms.
Disinfectant production companies such as Lysol had to issue a warning to all their consumers telling them not to try such methods. Trump's last coronavirus briefing had been on April 24 and had lasted for just 21 minutes.
He also did not take questions from reporters at the briefing and later took to Twitter to slam "fake news". He also spoke about canceling the briefings altogether. "What is the purpose of having White House News Conferences when the Lamestream Media asks nothing but hostile questions, & then refuses to report the truth or facts accurately," he tweeted.
"They get record ratings, & the American people get nothing but Fake News. Not worth the time & effort!" the tweet read.
