Devin Nunes Complains That ‘Media Freaks’ Are Distorting His Comments About Going to ‘Your Local Pub’

The day after he became the focus of sharp criticism for urging Fox News viewers to go out to their local restaurants and pubs in direct contradiction to CDC guidelines, Rep.

“So what I was saying is you have empty restaurants,” he continued. “You can go through the drive-thru or do take-out. It’s a great place to go. The media freaks can do what they want.”
