House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed the opposition chief and described him as “a moron”.
However, McCarthy asserted that the Indian report “didn’t even go peer overview.”
“The masks mandate relies upon a examine in India, primarily based upon a vaccine that isn”t authorised in America that didn”t go peer overview. Could this be a plan to maintain our colleges closed?” he requested.
