Well stated, Mr McDermott: “epitomizing the disrespectful, ethnocentric American abroad”. I was in Rio during the Olympics, living with my Brazilian relatives. They were furious about his stupid and callous behaviour, especially his depicting their city, which does have a number of security problems, “as a lawless land crawling with thieves and crooked cops”. The press headlines “Lying Gringos” said it all.
Good to see that the immature idiot sabotaged his own career!
