One day after Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) told people “it’s a great time to to out,” he has clarified that when he told people to “go to your local pub,” he was only talking about take-out or drive-thru local pubs.
Here are the Republican congressman’s remarks from Sunday morning:
“If you’re healthy, you and your family, it’s a great time to go out and go to a local restaurant, likely you can get in easy. Let’s not hurt the working people in this country…go to your local pub” pic.twitter.com/jXdhOfwe9R

The very next day, Nunes attacked “media freaks” who reported on his comments.
On Hannity's show, Nunes says "media freaks don't have a clue" what's going on. Nunes claims he was encouraging people to do drive-thru or takeout during his Sunday Fox hit, despite saying people can easily get into restaurants and telling people to go to local pub.

Here’s the video. This wasn’t due to “media freaks.” This was Nunes giving reckless, dangerous “advice” and encouraging people to congregate during a pandemic:pic.twitter.com/jZ6SaC1CoJ https://t.co/jzThtUtChv
