Biden trolls Trump on injecting bleach anniversary

President Biden on Tuesday trolled former President Trump on the fourth anniversary of him suggesting Americans inject bleach during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Biden shared a video, marking that four years ago Trump infamously said, “I see the disinfectant, which knocks it out in a minute … is there a way we can do something like that? By injection inside, almost a cleaning.”

“Don’t inject bleach. And don’t vote for the guy who told you to inject bleach,” Biden said in his post on the social platform X.

The president has trolled Trump, his expected rival in November’s election, before for the injecting bleach comments.

“Remember when he told us, literally, inject bleach?” the president said at a campaign event last week. “Bless me, Father.”

After Trump’s remarks in April 2020, he faced broad pushback and scrutiny from the medical community. Trump suggested medical experts should study the use of light or disinfectant as a treatment for the disease after a top science official at the Department of Homeland Security shared research that said bleach and isopropyl alcohol each kill the virus within minutes.

Then-White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany accused the media of taking his remarks out of context, arguing that “President Trump has repeatedly said that Americans should consult with medical doctors regarding coronavirus treatment.”
