Ryan Lochte and his friends misbehaved, then lied while representing the United States at the Olympics, but I think Brazil’s outrage is over the top and downright humorous.

Because of what it did after World War II, Brazil is in no place to criticize.

I speak of the Brazilian government knowingly giving safe haven to Nazi war criminals like Josef Mengele. U.S. officials were desperately searching for them to bring them to trial for crimes against humanity. The statute of limitations was quickly running out, but we got no help from Brazil.

Brazil should be incredibly embarrassed about their Nazi history, the poor of their country and the grossness of the environment we saw on television, and not be so fast to jump on the “ugly Americans” incident!
