The Stupid Times Are Killing Us: Listerine Forced to Debunk Ron Johnson’s COVID Cure Claims

Sen. Ron Johnson (Q-WI) has made himself stand out among the remaining Trump loyalists for his outlandish claims regarding the coronavirus and the January 6th Capitol insurrection while also making it very clear he’s far more loyal to Russia than the United States. “Russian Ron” famously traveled to Moscow along with Rand Paul on July 4, 2018, in a blatant display of kissing Putin’s ring on behalf of Trump.

Johnson has devolved to the point of spewing any QAnon conspiracy theory he wants whenever he wants, even if he’s physically on the Senate floor. This week, he decided that Ivermectin was too far out there to push anymore, so he claimed that mouthwash would do the trick if you just can’t make it to the Feed N Seed store. “Standard gargle, mouthwash, has been proven to kill the coronavirus,” Johnson claimed at a town hall on Wednesday. “If you get it, you may reduce viral replication. Why not try all these things?”

Since Johnson specifically named Listerine, one of the world’s most widely used mouthwash products, as the One True Mouthwash Cure, the company was forced to release a disclaimer on their website. Yes, this is where we are as a society now. Listerine has taken advantage of negative press in the past, jumping in to become Rosie O’Donnell’s breath freshener of choice and helping to raise thousands for charity after The Great Scope Kiss-Off.

This time around, they had to literally spell it out for people who might believe they could have just simply swished COVID-19 away two years ago. Their dental-professional-focused website specifically says the evidence is not strong enough to conclude that it is helpful against covid-19. Listerine ‘is not intended to prevent or treat COVID-19 and should be used only as directed on the product label.”

While your oral health matters, mouthwash will only kill certain germs, but it won’t kill the ‘Rona. Please vote for smart people who listen to Dr. Facui instead of Dr. Facebook.
