Radio host Howard Stern on Monday slammed President Trump for suggesting at a recent coronavirus press briefing that injecting disinfectant into people’s bodies could be an effective treatment for coronavirus, and encouraged the president’s supporters to follow his advice “to see if his theory works.”
“I would love it if Donald would get on TV and take an injection of Clorox and let’s see if his theory works,” Stern said on his Monday show, the New York Daily News reports. “Hold a big rally, say f—k this coronavirus, with all of his followers, and let them hug each other and kiss each other and have a big rally.”
“A big cocktail of disinfectant, “ suggested Stern’s sidekick, Robin Quivers. “Yeah,” Stern agreed. “And all take disinfectant and all drop dead.”
“I don’t recognize any of this as being Republican. I don’t recognize it as being anything political. I see it as insanity. I don’t know what is going on there, but I don’t have a good feeling” Stern added, according to the Daily News.
