What has the administration been doing in the midst of a pandemic? Working to clean up yet another mess created by the boss. The crazy talk about UV light and disinfectants led to warnings from everyone from the CDC to the makers of Lysol, and could dramatically alter the future of the daily White House falsehood fests. NYT: Trump’s Suggestion That Disinfectants Could Be Used to Treat Coronavirus Prompts Aggressive Pushback. Some White House “officials said it was one of the worst days in one of the worst weeks of his presidency.” (I’m guessing there are some kids in cages who’d take issue with that analysis. Every day is the worst day. Even today: Stephen Miller indicates immigration pause will be long term.)

+ Where did the president get his latest crazy idea? Revealed: leader of group peddling bleach as coronavirus ‘cure’ wrote to Trump this week. (It matters because these are the snake-oil hawking crackpots he’s listening to instead of actual experts.)

+ When it comes to spreading potentially deadly misinformation, the president is not working alone. He has plenty of accomplices in the media. I touched (or, more like, punched) on this yesterday? E.R. 404: “Someone needs to get this TV doctor off the air, stat, before Doogie Howitzer gets anyone else killed.”

+ At least there was one positive to come out of Lysolgate. I was so scared by the resulting health warnings, I switched to edibles.
