Meghan McCain has called on President Biden to fire the nation’s top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci because of of inconsistent messaging surrounding the COVID vaccine.
“The fact that Dr. Fauci is going on CNN and he can’t tell me if I get the vaccine, I’ll be able to have dinner with my family,” she said.”It’s terribly inconsistent messaging.”
She then compared Israel vaccination efforts to that of the United States, noting that Israeli officials have vaccinated half of their population.
“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 maybe does understand science, or can talk to other countries about how we can be more like these places who are doing this successfully,” she said.
“The fact that I, Meghan McCain, co-host of The View, don’t 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 added.
McCain’s co-host Whoppi Goldberg pushed back, noting the difference in population between different the two countries, adding:
“You probably could get your shot, but you’re going to go outside and be surrounded by people who have not gotten their shot, and they don’t know yet whether — how protected you’re going be. This is all stuff that we’ll know when the science makes sense, or we could have them just say, yeah, and then we’ll get them on the other side when he’s wrong.”
