On Fox News Friday, reporter John Roberts defended President Donald Trump’s suggestion that using UV lights inside the body could be used to treat coronavirus.
“You know, the concept of some sort of way of getting ultraviolet light inside the body … the president was correct,” said Roberts. “In fact, earlier this week, a company out of Colorado announced that it is studying a new device that would embed LED lights that emit UV rays into the breathing tubes of ventilators, and that way you could actually attack the virus inside the trachea.”
“I’m told that this research is still in its early phase, it hasn’t yet been tried in patients, but it may be something to look at for the future,” added Roberts.

Jared and Ivanka threaten to sue the Lincoln Project for ‘enormous’ damages over Times Square billboards on COVID: report
Attorneys representing Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are threatening to sue the Lincoln Project over two Times Square billboards criticizing the administration's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Lincoln Project posted a copy of a letter sent by attorney Marc Kasowitz.
"I am writing concerning the false, malicious and defamatory ads that the Lincoln Project is displaying on billboards in Times Square," Kasowitz wrote.
"Those ads show Ms. Trump smiling and gesturing toward a death count of Americans and New Yorkers, and attribute to Mr. Kushner the statement that "[New Yorkers] are going to suffer and that's their problem" (alteration in original), with body bags underneath," the letter read.
