During an appearance on CNN Tonight with Chris Cuomo’s temporary replacement, Michael Smerconish on Tuesday, veteran Olympics broadcaster and sports commentator Bob Costas called out the International Olympic Committee for their “affinity for authoritarian nations” and their snubs against the U.S. He also surprised viewers by calling out “the likes of Colin Kaepernick and LeBron James” who get rich off their made in China shoes and don’t speak out against the evilness of the regime.
Originally speaking about President Biden’s decision to implement a diplomatic boycott of the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics, Costas took a detour and noted: “One of the big questions now that you can't evade is, what is it with the IOC and their affinity for authoritarian nations?”
He then explained that the IOC had been snubbing the U.S. for years because they were scorned by our media.
