While millions of Americans eagerly await the coronavirus vaccine, Meghan McCain is upset that her privilege has not allowed her to skip the line.
While McCain spoke about the death toll from COVID-19 on the February 22 episode of The View, which had hit the tragic benchmark of 500,000 deaths, he complained about the Centers For Disease Control's response, saying that the chief of the organization, Dr. Anthony Fauci, should be replaced by someone who understands science. "
“It will be a year since we left the studio next week and I've been very responsible in many ways, like so many Americans, and the fact that Dr. Fauci goes on CNN and he can't tell me if I can get the vaccine, if I can have dinner with my family, ”she complained after seeing a clip of Dr. Fauci shared on CNN in which she informed the host that he was unwilling to provide official instructions as to when vaccinated grandparents would be able to travel and visit their grandchildren.
She continued, "The fact that I, Meghan McCain, co-host of The View, don't know when or how to get a vaccine because the rollout is so nebulous for my age group and my health I have no idea when and how i get it. I want to get it. If you call me at three in the morning I'll go anywhere anytime to get it. "
McCain then decided to blame President Biden, who has only been in office for a little over a month and has more than doubled his vaccination rate, by saying, “I want to be responsible and of course wait for my turn am, but this rollout was a disaster. And I understand that President Trump can bear much of the blame, but now we are in the Biden administration and I want something to look forward to and hope for because if the vaccine means nothing changes and we have to wait a few more years for everyone to get it. There are already a lot of people who don't get it. "
According to Dr. Fauci and the Biden administration should have the opportunity for all Americans to get vaccinated by late summer, not years.
McCain went on to use Israel, a country of roughly 9 million people compared to America's 328 million, as a better model for vaccine news. "So I'm over Dr. Fauci," McCain explained. "I think we need more people who have more opinions and honestly the Biden government should remove him and put someone in who understands the science or how these other countries can talk about how we can be more like these other places, who do this successfully. "
Whoopi Goldberg intervened and threw advertisements when McCain said, "I know what I'm saying is controversial, I really do. But I'm not a fraud and I'm not going to go on the air saying anything other than what I say in private . "
