McCarthy: Pelosi Protects China from Criticism, COVID Origin Investigations — She Doesn’t Tell Athletes Protesting U.S. to Be Quiet 

On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) reacted to House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) telling American athletes at the 2022 Olympics not to risk upsetting China’s government by stating Pelosi doesn’t say that to athletes protesting the U.S. and after protecting China “from any investigations into the origin of COVID,” Pelosi is now protecting them from facing criticism.
