Meghan McCain: Replace Dr Fauci with someone who ‘understands the science’
The View / ABCMeghan McCain, who may have read too many tweets from Ben Shapiro on Monday morning, embarked on one of her signature rants in which she complained about not having received a vaccine yet COVID-19 – despite her position as co-host of all-important daytime talk show The View – and called on President Joe Biden to fire Dr Anthony Fauci and replace him with someone who “understands the science”. She started off by sharing a clip of Fauci on CNN’s State of the Union over the weekend. resist Dana Bash’s call to give concrete advice to vaccinated grandparents on how to visit their unvaccinated grandchildren. “There will be recommendations that will come out. I don’t want to make a recommendation now on public television, ”he said. “I would like to sit down with the team and take a look at it.” “So I was very frustrated when I saw this clip,” McCain said, explaining that she had “respect” for the pandemic which has now taken more than half a million Americans live and never want to. not “downplay” the tragedy. “That being said, next week it will be a year since we left the studio and I have been very responsible in many ways, as have so many Americans been,” she continued. “And the fact that Dr. Fauci is on CNN and he can’t tell me if I get the vaccine, if I can have dinner with my family.” “This is a terribly inconsistent message and it continues to be inconsistent messages,” she said, comparing the US response to an Israel bulletin board she saw online – “Take a picture, take a picture” – which promised people to go to bars with their friends after being vaccinated. Go at It Over American ‘Enemy’ Ted Cruz “The fact that I, Meghan McCain, co-host of The View, do not know when or how I will be able to get vaccinated because the deployment for my age group and my health is so nebulous, I have no idea when and how I get it, ”the 36-year-old expert said. “I want to see her. If you call me at three in the morning, I’ll go anywhere anytime to get it. “I want to be responsible and obviously wait my turn,” she continued, “but this deployment has been a disaster. And I understand that President Trump may shoulder a lot of the blame, but now we’re in the Biden administration and I for one would like something to look forward to and hope for because if getting the vaccine means nothing changes and we have to wait a few more years until everyone gets it, there are already a lot of people who don’t get it. “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 in somebody who understands the science or who can speak like these others. country of how we can be more like these others. It’s one thing to criticize the Biden administration’s message regarding vaccines, but for McCain, suggesting that Fauci doesn’t “understand the science” was clearly over the line for moderator Whoopi Goldberg, who spoke of her co-host and threw in the publicity as she explained, “I know what I’m saying is controversial, I really do. But I’m not a fake and I’m not going to go on air and say something different than what I’m saying in private.
