Apparently there is no limit to what kind of ridiculousness the public will believe.
Once the Fake News industry convinced the country a president asking about using light therapy as a lung disinfectant was “recommending drinking bleach,” it was clear there was no limit.

[It is truly amazing.
I’m reminded of something from an Heinlein book:
Democracy is based on the assumption that a million men are wiser
than one man. How’s that again? I missed something.
Autocracy is based on the assumption that one man is wiser than a
million men. Let’s play that over again, too. Who decides?
I don’t have any solutions to the problem. I’m inclined to just sit back with a large bowl of popcorn and make snarky comments. But the issues can be, literally, genocidally serious.
Prepare and response appropriately.—Joe]
