Boner of the Day for February 14th, 2020

ROUND ONE

Boner Candidate #1: THE SILVER SOLUTION.

A guest on televangelist Jim Bakker’s show suggested on Wednesday that a product sold on Bakker’s website might be effective at protecting against and killing the novel coronavirus. The guest, naturopathic Dr. Sherrill Sellman, said that Silver Solution—a product that can be purchased on Bakker’s web store—has been found to be effective on viruses related to the one from Wuhan. Further, she said Silver Solution could bolster a person’s immune system and potentially make their bodies less susceptible to the virus. “Well, let’s say [Silver Solution] hasn’t been tested on this strain of the coronavirus, but it’s been tested on other strains of the coronavirus and has been able to eliminate it within 12 hours,” she said. “Totally eliminate it. Kills it, deactivates it. And then it boosts your immune system so then you can support the recovery, because when you kill the virus, then the immune system comes into action to clear it out. So you want a vibrant immune system as well as an ability to deactivate these viruses.” Newsweek contacted Sellman via her website for further comment and clarification but did not receive a reply before publication.

Boner Candidate #2: HE WAS CRYING. HE WAS BEGGING ME.

The former captain of the Ohio State University wrestling team claimed Wednesday that Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, was aware of students being sexually abused — and accused him of a “cover-up.”
“Jim Jordan called me crying — crying, groveling — on the Fourth of July, begging me to go against my brother — begging me, crying for half an hour,” Adam DiSabato testified before the Ohio state legislature Wednesday. “That’s the kind of cover-up that’s going on there.” An independent investigation conducted by the law firm Perkins Coie found that Richard Strauss, a former university doctor, sexually abused at least 177 male students over a period of 19 years. Strauss was never charged and committed suicide in 2005. Ian Fury, a spokesperson for Jordan, accused DiSabato of lying in a statement to Cleveland.com. “Congressman Jordan never saw or heard of any abuse, and if he had he would have dealt with it,” Fury told the outlet.

Boner Candidate #3: MISSIONARY ATTACK

Late last month, a missionary with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was assaulted by several suspects while on his way to teach a family in Payson, Utah and the incident is being investigated as a hate crime. Sebastian Francis West, 19, was arrested in connection to the assault. Malachi Bay West, 20, was arrested Thursday evening after being identified in a photo lineup by the victim and a witness. According to a probable cause statement, on Jan. 28 a black Panamanian missionary was with his partner on their way to a family’s home when the assault occurred near 300 N and 100 E in Payson. The two missionaries were approached by approximately six individuals wearing dark hoodies and red bandanas covering the bottom halves of their faces. The victim stated the suspects began yelling and cursing at him, calling him racial slurs and telling him to get out of their “hood” and go back to where he came from. One of the hooded suspects approached the missionary and grabbed a phone out of his hand and threw it into the road, cracking the screen. The victim went over to pick up his phone and was followed by the group of individuals who continued to yell racial slurs and one threatening to slit the victim’s mother’s throat. Read More

 ROUND TWO

Boner Candidate #1: RULES ARE RULES

The events Wednesday night at McLeod Center weren’t limited to Northern Iowa’s 71-63 win over Illinois State. A halftime promotion, a half-court shot and some controversial time-keeping led to confusion. Northern Iowa student Dalton Hinsch had to hit a layup, a free throw, a 3-pointer and a halfcourt shot within a certain timeframe — and if he did, he would win $10,000. After completing the first three, Hinsch dashed back to halfcourt and let it fly as the McLeod Center emcee counted down. Swish. The crowd went wild, as did Hinsch, thinking he had won the prize. But moments later, those cheers were followed by boos as a controversial decision was made. Hinsch didn’t get the half-court shot off in time. A video of the entire sequence surfaced on Twitter hours later, showing Hinsch completing everything in 27 seconds. Many thought he had been robbed, believing the time restriction to complete the four-shot task was 30 seconds. But Northern Iowa’s athletics department cleared things up Thursday with a mid-morning tweet. Read More

Boner Candidate #2: I STRESS HYGIENE AMONG THE STAFF

Several workers were fired from a Michigan Wendy’s after a video posted online showed an employee bathing in a kitchen sink. The video shows a worker in a sink full of water and soap at the Wendy’s on N. Lafayette Street in Greenville. Another person walks by and talks to the employee who is in the sink as someone else records the incident for the social media video app Tik Tok. The video was later posted to Facebook. According to WOODTV, all of the people involved were fired. The franchise owner Team Schostak Family Restaurants released a statement to WOOD saying that the restaurant was cleaned and inspected by the health department. “This egregious behavior is completely unacceptable and counter to our safety, training and operational standards. Upon learning of this situation, all employees in the video were terminated immediately and the restaurant has been completely sanitized. The health department visited the restaurant today and no violations were reported.” Read More

Boner Candidate #3: I DIDN’T REALLY WANT THE CONTRACT

Among those who applied to grow medical cannabis in Utah, some have ties to the Utah State Legislature. FOX 13 submitted a public records request last year with Utah’s Department of Agriculture and Food seeking the names of the companies that wanted a license to grow medical cannabis under the state-run program. The agency declined to provide the applications, but recently provided a list of dozens of names of those who applied. Analyzing the list, FOX 13 found two companies with ties to the legislature. One application was submitted by Rep. Keven Stratton, R-Orem, who chairs the House Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment Committee, which sometimes hears cannabis bills. In an interview with FOX 13, Rep. Stratton said he wanted to understand firsthand how the process worked. “We weren’t interested in actually being awarded the contract but just from the perspective of looking at the other side,” Rep. Stratton said. Rep. Stratton’s company, Stratton & Bratt Landscaping, is listed on his conflict of interest disclosure form that every lawmaker must fill out. At the time Utah’s Department of Agriculture and Food opened up applications it was not prohibited, nor was he granted one of the 10 licenses. “At the time of the override bill, I wasn’t aware that would even be a possibility and how it was going to work out,” Rep. Stratton said. Read More
