While States Close Restaurants and Bars, Devin Nunes Encourages People to Visit Their Locals Pubs
The United States is still trying to figure out the best way to keep people from contracting COVID-19. Ohio recently announced that they will be closing down bars and restaurants. Governor JB Pritzker soon said that the state of Illinois will be following suit.
While interview with Fox News on Sunday morning, Devin Nunes took a completely opposite tact. The California congressman encouraged viewers to take their families to visit their local pubs and restaurants.
Nunes made the comments during an interview with Maria Bartiromo. He told the host:
“There’s a lot of concerns with the economy here because people are scared to go out, but I will just say one of the things you can do — if you’re healthy, you and your family it’s a great time to just go out, go to a local restaurant, likely you can get in easily. Let’s not hurt the working people in this country that are relying on wages and tips to keep their small business going. Just don’t run to the grocery store and buy, you know, $4,000 of food. Go to your local pub.”
The California congressman also had a message for Americans hoarding things like toilet paper. He continued, “If you know someone that is senior, or if you have an underlying health condition especially with your lungs, you are at high risk, so we need to focus all of our energy on our senior population with underlying health concerns, and there is no reason, Maria, for the American people to be running to the grocery store, to buy 27 packs of toilet paper. Okay? There’s no shortage of toilet paper, no shortage of food.”

Devin Nunes is actively trying to spread coronavirus now by telling people to go out more and that it's a great time to get a table at a restaurant.
As a leader and a public official this is negligent and unacceptable. pic.twitter.com/A6ksVVCjd0
