MEDICAL BRIEF: Leeches and advocates for their use as a medical treatment expressed extreme displeasure with President Trump today after he suggested infecting people with disinfectant could end the coronavirus pandemic.
“This guy has already touted unproven drugs, shining a light down your throat, and injecting yourself with disinfectant. But no leeches? I mean come on!”
As a frontline medical procedure for centuries and still a popular treatment promoted by quacks everywhere, leeches maintain they deserved at least a mention by the President by now.
“What are we? Chopped liver?”
Their unhappiness was compounded when they learned Trump had just recommended eating chopped liver as a ‘beautiful cure’ for COVID-19.
