House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday, wearing a scarf she used as a facial covering amid the pandemic, took shots at both President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, accusing them both of being "anti-science" and "anti-governance."
“Speaking of Mitch, what’s gotten into him?” Pelosi told reporters at a weekly Capitol Hill news conference."The president is asking people to inject Lysol into their lungs, and Mitch is saying that states should go bankrupt. It is clear -- visible within 24 hours -- of how Republicans reject science and reject governance."
(the above statement is NOT what he said)
Trump suggested that sunlight, high humidity or possibly an "injection" of "the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute" could be COVID-19 treatments during a White House briefing on Thursday.
The White House claimed Friday that his comments, which many medical experts call dangerous or even deadly, were taken "out of context."
