For once the New York Times eschews bothsidesism


And this is what it took...

We've deleted an earlier tweet and updated a sentence in our article that implied that only "some experts" view the ingestion of household disinfectants as dangerous. To be clear, there is no debate on the danger.

Jesus fucking Christ. Pathetic.

As I noted before the rewrite, a journalist must be careful when making sweeping statements. Only sentient experts view the practice as dangerous.

To encourage you to watch the video, here are some of the YouTube comments:

At least he had the sense to avoid liability when he commented, “Well, you’re gonna have to use medical doctors, right?”

This is absolutely phenomenal. Everything about it. Pure comedy genius. I have watched this about 12 times today, and I am so impressed. I am now a fan. Thanks so much for the laughs, omg!

This is hysterical. "...some other way" has me rolling every time I watch it
... The video is only 49 seconds, but I just watched some of the continuation of that Trump comment. Funniest was "Again I say maybe you can maybe you can't. I'm not a doctor. But I'm like a person that has a good you-know-what."

If he were any good at being sarcastic or funny in some other way, he would certainly have repeated is classic expression: "elements of medical".

Ooh...who? (If this isn’t an unwanted “outing”).

(Lots of great comments in that Twitter thread, BTW).

False alarm. I recognized a Doper name, but now see nine Twitter accounts with that same name or a close variant; and the one posting seems different from ours. (That twitterer's comments are no longer visible in that thread anyway: pushed off by higher-rated or more recent tweets.)

It seemed like it might be a slight violation to mention the name but, anyway, it's irrelevant now.
