Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican and Trump loyalist, who has repeatedly promoted debunked medical advice, claimed on Wednesday that mouthwash can help prevent COVID infections.

If a person drinks enough, they can be cured of a lot of things.

At what point do we as a nation start charging these idiot senators for practicing medicine without a license?

Never listen to Wrong Johnson.

Rob Johnson has been a proponent of terror since the Koch Bros first bought him into office over Russ Feingold

Days since Ron Johnson has not been a total embarrassment to Wisconsin: 0

Another moron who married rich, pretends he did it himself, takes government money, but decries government helping poor people, aka "I'm Ron F**k-up Johnson, gimme money but fark the poor!"

Given that he's most likely vaccinated, that's true.

to avoid the vaccine I just go to the tanning booth a couple times a week, take ivermectin, zinc, silver, aspirin, and antibiotics everyday  and now with this info mouthwash every 4 hours. I mean come on, did you hear you now have to get a booster shot? how inconvenient

Dear Voters of the State of Wisconsin who voted for Ron Johnson:

WTF is wrong with you????

Signed.....  Sane Individuals who believe in Science
 
2021-12-10 9:22:49 AM  
Ron's Johnson, stupidest Senator, surpassing even the apparently brain damaged Jim Inhofe.
Inhofe is just happily stupid, Johnson is willfully and proudly stump stupid a mile or two past where Jim Inhofe stands.
 
2021-12-10 9:22:49 AM  
They keep coming up with more and more bizarre "solutions" to Coronavirus.

Or they could get a simple vaccine that's based on real science and proven safe and effective. 2 seconds and done.

Nah, let's just eat more horse paste.

With the possible retirement of Louie Gohmert, Ron Johnson is now in contention for being the dumbest person on Capitol Hill, although MTG and Bobert are strong candidates as well.

I think Biden should mandate gargling with listerine 3 times a day.  The right would fall all over themselves to refute mouthwash as a preventative.  In the great rush to do *anything* but what the left recommends they might actually get vaccinated.

We don't do it when they make up procedures to perform on pregnant women, or when they dictate what non-medical nonsense doctors must say to pregnant women so why should we start charging them now?

"Even if gargling kills some of the virus, it won't be able to clean the nasal area, nor the viruses that's already penetrated deeper into the body," Kim Woo-Joo, an infectious disease expert at Korea University, told The Washington Post.

Well, there's solution for that.  Grab your neti pot and load up the mouthwash, you pansies.

You're confusing stupidity with evil. Don't let them get away with "stupid" being the excuse. It's evil, plain and simple. They know full well what they are doing.

My conservative relative: "The gubbamint keeps telling us to take the vaccine!  Why aren't they telling us to take zinc and vitamin D instead?  It must be a conspiracy!"

There's just no reaching these people.

FTFA: "Standard gargle, mouthwash, has been proven to kill the coronavirus," Johnson said. "If you get it, you may reduce viral replication. Why not try all these things?"

In the world of Ron Johnson "Why not try all these things," includes horse paste and Lysterine, but not masks, vaccinations and social distancing.
 
2021-12-10 9:50:26 AM  
You need to snort the mouthwash and then it kills off the covid.

We've all had the common cold , RINO virus, rino virus et al. Gargling helps you feel better because it removes the phlegm in the mouth and throat. It also kills or removes any virus in the phlegm. Problem is that virus isn't the virus infecting you.

Sort of like sweeping the garage out to get rid of grubs in the yard. Any grubs that came in on muddy boots are gone but that wasn't really the problem.

Tell them "They do tell you to take zinc and Vitamin D!  The FDA has put out a Recommended Daily Allowance for those nutrients for decades!  You should already be taking them."
