A couple of Darwin Award winners decided to self-medicate ingesting a fish tank additive intended to treat sick aquarium fish. The husband died and the wife is blaming Trump.
She’s not the only one blaming Trump. The news media latched onto this story like a tick on a dog’s back and quickly framed it as an indictment against President Trump’s “recklessness.”
Because apparently President Trump is out there encouraging people to ingest aquarium fish medicine.
NBC News sought out the surviving Darwin Award winner and she explained, “We saw Trump on TV – every channel – and all of his buddies and that it was safe.”
Really? Trump and his buddies said “hey, taking fish medicine to treat Wuhan virus is totally safe?” Really?
“I was in the pantry stacking dog food and I just saw it sitting in the back shelf and thought, ‘Hey, isn’t that the stuff they’re talking about on TV?’ And it was.” [Spoiler alert: No it wasn’t.]
Again, President Trump never said root through your cabinets and find fish medicine and ingest it.
He wasn’t talking about fish tank medicine at all.
It’s amazing that NBC News thinks this latest example of Darwin Award stupidity makes Trump, and not this woman, look like a reckless idiot.
Now, neither of the two geniuses was sick; that’s the most ridiculous part of the story. They were perfectly healthy when they decided to dose themselves with fish medicine. “Because Trump said!!!!”
She went on, giving the media the money quote they so desperately desired:
“Don’t believe anything that the President says and his people because they don’t know what they’re talking about. And don’t take anything–be so careful and call your doctor. This is a heart ache I’ll never get over.”
Again, Trump didn’t tell you to dose yourself with fish tank medicine, you idiot!
Yes, it is heartbreaking. But it’s a heartache of your own making.
I’ll tell you what, genius. If President Trump “and his people” ever suggest we ingest fish tank medicine, I promise not to believe anything that he says.
The fact that the news media is actually promoting this story of two incredibly stupid people as a way to attack Trump is mind-boggling.
But it’s having the desired effect.
The ResistanceLOL is sputtering with self-righteous indignation because two idiots swallowed fish tank medicine AND IT’S ALL TRUMP’S FAULT!!!!
The media can now say, “We simply have to stop airing the President’s daily briefings because he’s getting people to poison themselves!!!”
Only he never ever encouraged anyone to self-medicate with whatever crap they find in their pantry. He certainly never told them to ingest a freaking fish tank additive. And every person with six working brain cells understands that.
Which might explain why that gelatinous oaf George Conway doesn’t understand.
Again. President Trump (and Governor Cuomo) talked about promising treatment using hydroxychloroquine, not chloroquine phosphate found in fish tank medicine.
But these irresponsible assholes don’t care. They want people to refuse to be treated with a medication that can save their lives because they want more Americans to die. All so they can destroy a President they despise.
And if that means airing the idiotic story of two Darwin Award winners, then they’re on the case!
Now do you understand why I say the news media is the one non-essential industry that should absolutely be shut down right now?
