Devin Nunes slammed for telling Fox News viewers to "go to your local pub" amid coronavirus outbreak - 2020-03-15
The Internet lashed out at Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) on Sunday after he told Americans to go to restaurants during the novel coronavirus pandemic.
"There's a lot of concerns with the economy here because people are scared to go out," Nunes told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo. "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."
"Just don't run to the grocery store and buy $4,000 of food!" he added. "Go to your local pub."
The advice did not go over well on Twitter, where people repeatedly referred to Nunes as an "idiot."
