Alec Baldwin’s Trump impression is a Lysol booster shot.
President Donald Trump pondered the idea of injecting disinfectants to kill the coronavirus last week, which prompted Lysol maker Reckitt Benckiser to make a statement that people should never do this. Trump later went back on these comments, claiming he was sarcastic.

“You take a cheeseburger and dip it in butter, soak it in butter and put it in your rectum,” said the actor, adding that the cheeseburger would suck out all the poison and “kill the virus dead.”

At least Baldwin’s Schein Trump now has the real solution: just put a burger in your buns.
