How is he not in Trump’s government by now? Talk about being a failure as a grifter.

I’m making no bets on whether or not the FDA — in this current Administration — will do anything about this.

Orange man vs. blue man? Imagine being the poor bastard in the control room trying to adjust the color balance on the video feed.

Preferably someone else’s.

I think we’ve firmly established in this country that it doesn’t even matter when something is.

I want to say - “This will just sort itself out.” But even rubes don’t deserve to die from snake oil.

Though I thought colloidal silver did have SOME health benefits. I think my ex-wife now takes it sometimes… but she has gained several… opinions I don’t agree with now.

But is the colloidal silver blessed in Jeebus’ name? Otherwise its hard to see how it could possibly work

Argyria isn’t fatal, but it will turn you blue permanently.

It might also affect eyesight and kidney function.

It has some antibiotic properties, but I don’t know that it’s been shown to be useful in infections in humans, not sure if they can get high enough dosage without toxicity or at least blueness. Copper, which they’ve proposed coating surfaces in hospitals with, I think has similar antibiotic properties.

Taking this in the hope of curing or preventing corona virus is what could be fatal.
