Meghan McCain Puts Her Foot In It With Jaw-Dropping COVID-19 Vaccine Take

Meghan McCain Puts Her Foot In It With Jaw-Dropping COVID-19 Vaccine Take
Science
On Mondays episode of The View, the shows co-hosts discussed an interview Dr. Anthony Fauci had, where he avoided making concrete projections about mask-wearing because there were too many variables.

McCain wasnt happy that Fauci wouldnt offer specifics onwhether someone could go see friends and family after being vaccinated, anddemanded that President Joe Biden fire Fauci because of it.

The fact that Fauci cant tell her that if she gets the vaccine shell be able to have dinner with her family is terribly inconsistent messaging, McCain said.

McCain then did the COVID-19 equivalent of Do you know who I am? and lamented her celebrity status isnt helping her get the shot.

The fact that I, Meghan McCain, co-host of The View, dont know when or how I will be able to get a vaccine because the rollout for my age range and my health is so nebulous, I have no idea when and how I get it, she said. I want to get it. If you call me at three oclock in the morning, I will go any place at any time to get it.

Although McCain admitted that former president Donald Trump was responsible for many of the problems associated with the vaccine rollout, she said shes over Dr. Fauci.

McCain also noted that Israel has vaccinated more than half its population and baselessly suggested that Faucis lack of understanding of science is impeding efforts to get Americans vaccinated.

I think we need to have more people giving more opinions and honestly quite frankly, I think the Biden administration should remove him and put someone else in place that does understand science or can talk like these other countries about how we can be more like these other places that are doing this successfully, she said.

You can see part of McCains lament below.

McCains comments attracted a lot of Twitter mockery.

"Why isn t my white privileged nepotism working?" whines Mrs The Federalist Meghan McCain #TheView #FireMeghanMcCain https://t.co/aFq7WrOXI1

Does Meghan McCain understand that Fauci is an infectious disease expert/medical advisor and it s not his job to figure out the logistics surrounding the distribution of vaccines? (this is a rhetorical question, she clearly does not understand) https://t.co/QBWjhEV0Hi

Just saw why Meghan McCain is trending. Since she s blocked me, someone please tell her that cohosts of The View are not essential workers. The fact that I, Meghan McCain, COHOST OF THE VIEW, dont know when or how I will be able to get a vaccine."

Meghan McCain has been wealthy her entire life. Shes actively opposed growing social safety net programs that would benefit low-income and disabled people, out of fear it might marginally impact her massive wealth.

So of course shes upset to not be first in line for a vaccine. https://t.co/1uiHFlC2Kx

The fact that I, mediocre white woman on your TV screen only because of my father and no other reputable accomplishment cant get a vaccine yet to visit Napa with my besties is appalling - Meghan McCain https://t.co/UfLTqCZPvC
