He said he won’t take responsibility for an increase in people ingesting disinfectant after he dubbed it a possible treatment at a recent briefing.

The president managed to mostly avoid questions about his bizarre statement on Friday that claimed discussions were being held about researching injecting people with disinfectants. 

He later claimed he was being ‘sarcastic’ but on Monday he briefly addressed the matter when asked about Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s statements that his state was flooded with calls to emergency hotlines from people asking about disinfectants.
