I’m not taking this post in a political angle as I’m sure that Trump didn’t mean to swallow whole Lysol. That said, whenever I see a trending word like “Lysol” I have to take a peak and Twitter never fails in making me smile. Sure the world is ending and now we’re probably going to have a Lysol shortage, but at least I have Twitter reactions to mend my broken heart.
So below, in no particular order find me favorite reactions to the Lysol comment that is trending so well.
1) I worked in PR and actually think this is the appropriate reaction from the Lysol PR person
Imagine being the person at Lysol that got the call to write a statement telling people not to consume it because the president told them to! pic.twitter.com/6kAxASobjp

2) Okay this can be slightly expected.

3) Totally normal day here, nothing to see!
Death toll tops 50,000.
Unemployment tops 20%.
President suggests mainlining lysol.

4) It’s literally already selling out.
If you thought toilet paper was hard to find, just try to buy Lysol and a syringe.
It'll be as scarce as Trump in Vietnam.

5) Just inhale them all!
What brand of desinfectant is the best for a lung injection?
I can’t decide between Clorox, Lysol, or Windex.

6) It’s nice to have standards.
I like presidents who don’t prompt a response from Lysol to not drink their disinfectants.

7) That will also be useful if you had your mind on a bleaching.

8) There are so many things that I never expected this year.
Never would I have thought in a million yrs that Lysol would have to put out a statement & tell Americans NOT to inject their product into your body to kill a virus.
But here we are in the 2020 circus.

9) Why didn’t the framers of the constitution include this in the 25th amendment?
The 25th amendment was made for times like these. But his cabinet is busy buying Lysol to inject.

10) So you’re saying there’s good news?
The good news: Your medical insurance likely does not require a "pre-authorization" to purchase Lysol or Clorox.
The bad news: Your life insurance would consider it suicide, hence, under most policies, not an insured death.
