On Thursday, April 23, President Donald Trump told the press his task force was looking into injecting disinfectant and UV light as possible remedies to the viral pathogen behind the global pandemic.
The next day he claimed he was being "sarcastic," but fooled literally no one.

This is far from the first time President Trump has spread ridiculous conspiracy theories and untruths from the White House podium.
