Trump Org Tweets Claim Drinking Vodka Cures COVID

Golf Week reports:

John Daly claims he has a cure for COVID-19 that will help us “get over this thing pretty soon and we’ll get back out playing a lot more golf” in a 50-second video shared by The Trump Organization on Twitter.

“I kind of got a cure for this. I only drink one drink a day, it just happens to be a bottle of good old Belvedere,” Daly said while holding the clear bottle of vodka up toward the camera.

“Just drink one of these a day. You know, sippy, sippy on a McDonald’s diet Coke ya know, wash it down pretty good. Never have a hangover. And that’s the way you kill this coronavirus, I believe. “

According to the above-linked report, Daly, a two-time PGA champion, has struggled with physical health and alcohol abuse issues for years.

The World Health Organization has warned that alcohol may increase the risk of contracting COVID. Last year Daly golfed with Trump at his New Jersey club.
