Regular readers of this blog (if there is any such thing) know that I have supported the office of the President of the United States, if not the man. To that end, on occasion I have defended the holder of that office, Donald Trump, against some of the egregious social media claims that have been made against him even if not always agreeing with him. That said, some things are just so shocking and funny that there is no defending them.
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo's wife, Cristina, has recovered after testing positive for COVID-19, but the treatment methods she said she followed are controversial.
She is the founder of the wellness website The Purist, and recently stated that she took Clorox baths and used vitamin drips (administered by a medical doctor) to speed her recovery.
The "drips" included a concoction of vitamin C, magnesium, folic acid, and zinc, among other things. Her bleach baths consisted of adding a half cup of Clorox to her bath to help "combat the radiation and metals in my system and oxygenate it."
She added, "We want to neutralize heavy metals because they slow-up the electromagnetic frequency of our cells, which is our energy field, and we need a good flow of energy.”
This came on the heels of President Trump’s conference where he said, “Supposing we hit the body with a tremendous — whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful — light, and I think you said that hasn’t been checked but you’re going to test it. And then I said, ‘Supposing you brought the light inside the body,’ which you can do either through the skin or in some other way, and I think you said you’re going to test that, too. Sounds interesting."
"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? Like injection inside or almost a cleaning because, you see, it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number in the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that.”
Then he added, “Maybe you can, maybe you can’t. I’m not a doctor, but I’m, like, a person that has a good you know what,” Trump said, pointing to his head.
