A reporter at The Washington Post learned that size does matter after trying to pin the exorbitant price of isopropyl alcohol on President Trump and his administration.
The Posts Amber Phillips posted and then deleted a tweet on Thursday announcing that the cost of isopropyl alcohol on Amazon was shockingly $2,375. Her tweet came after Trumps coronavirus task force briefing at the White House Thursday where a Department of Homeland Security official spoke about the use of the product against the coronavirus.

Yeah, a 55 GALLON DRUM of isopropyl alcohol is $2,375.
This is astonishingly deceptive, @byamberphillips https://twitter.com/byamberphillips/status/1253449043063300101
We should send her one
This was the second thing I saw on Twitter today. The first was that the first five U.S. trends have to do with Lysol or Bleach. I concluded I need to take a break from Twitter today. The media in this country is so reprobate and disgusting.
I'm sure they like being disgusting and full of hate.
“I’m the president! You’re fake news! STFU!”
There’s still something wrong. That would be $10.80 a quart. A pint of isopropyl alcohol was under a buck at Walmart not that long ago.
Okay, it’s laboratory grade, which is a higher purity grade than you’d typically use for a household disinfectant.
She’s hiding her tweet, now.
How much does printer ink cost? By the gallon?
@byamberphillips why are you hiding your tweets? Is it because you got caught in trying to spread false information. Let me go ahead and uncrop the photo of what you were peddling as "news." @washingtonpost should fire you. Then perhaps you'll learn to #code pic.twitter.com/AAdrmZ1QmI— DeWayne 🇺🇸 (@1_Rowdy_Racer) April 24, 2020
Ha! 🐔💩 Imagine being so bad at you "job" that you have to lock your Twitter account so that only "verified followers" can see your tweets. Whatcha hiding, .@byamberphillips? Only people who are brainwashed enough can see your 🐂💩? Sounds like Communism. #LiarsGonnaLie https://t.co/OxcZenZoPZ— ϏεεῥΘηΤrϋϻρίηβᾱbγ⇥ τεχτ TRÜMP ʈο ⑧⑧Ο②② (@ProudPatriot_US) April 24, 2020

Its an Orwellian nightmare to be sure
And so many nattering naybobs of negativity repeating the untruths and the fact-checkers turning a blind eye.
Last weeks mythmaking was that President Trump was going to see a windfall from his $100 mutual fund investment in Trump pills
Stalinists lie. Always
Ask Wash Poo why her lies die in darkness?
A week later, you couldn't find any anywhere!
Right now they’re (the media) trying panic us into a food shortage. No doubt they would blame it on Trump
Plus it’s 99% which is hard to find since Isopropyl alcohol will quickly absorb up to 10% water. 99% is used for removing water for that reason.
