Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid slammed the U.S. Olympic Committee Thursday over reports that the Team USA uniforms were made in China, saying officials “should burn” them.
Reid, D-Nev., made the remarks following reports that China has already taken gold from America by manufacturing the uniforms Team USA will wear during the opening ceremonies.
“I think the Olympic Committee should be ashamed,” Reid told reporters on Capitol Hill. He said they should “burn” the current uniforms, and would rather America’s athletes wear shirts with “USA” hand-painted on them.
Burn those uniforms!
I’m sure we can make ’em in the USA!
Rats! Let’s at least have them made in Indonesia!
I jest. Surely we have American manufacturers who can create appropriate outfits for our Olympians. However, the cost would probably be double due to how much Uncle Sam taxes small business owners.
Better plan–cardboard boxes painted by America’s school children! Shoot–schools are on summer break!
What about our many inmates? You’re right–scratch that as well.
I am running out of ideas!
Birthday suits are out.
OK–just wear the stinking Chinese-made uniforms and then beat them in competition! They’ve got our money anyway!
