Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is so disgusted that the U.S. Olympic athletes will be wearing uniforms made in China that he thinks the outfits should be burned.
“I am so upset,” the Nevada Democrat told reporters Thursday. “I think the Olympic Committee should be ashamed of themselves. I think they should be embarrassed. I think they should take all the uniforms and put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again.”
He added, “If they have to wear nothing but a singlet with ‘USA’ on it painted by hand, that’s what they should wear.”
ABC News reported Wednesday that no part of the Ralph Lauren-designed opening ceremony uniform was made in America.
Asked why the athletes’ uniforms were not manufactured in the states, the U.S. Olympic Committee told ABC: “The U.S. Olympic team is privately funded and we’re grateful for the support of our sponsors. We’re proud of our partnership with Ralph Lauren, an iconic American company.”
Harry Reid much like Las Vegas 110 and hazy..
