Meghan McCain complained about her lack of access to the coronavirus vaccine and called for Dr. Anthony Fauci’s ouster on “The View” on Monday.

McCain showed a clip of Fauci, President Biden’s chief medical adviser for Covid-19, speaking with CNN’s Dana Bash in which Bash asked if it would be safe for her vaccinated parents to spend time with her children. Fauci said he wasn’t ready to make recommendations yet. 

Noting that it had been a year since Americans had gone into quarantine, McCain went on to complain about the lack of clear messaging around coronavirus. “I want to be responsible and obviously wait my turn,” she said, “but this rollout has been a disaster.”

“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 said, seemingly implying that her status as a television host should grant her special access to information about the vaccine.

Speaking directly to the camera, McCain went on to say that President Trump was to blame for much of the way the virus spread over the past year, but “now we’re in the Biden administration and I, for one, would like something to look forward to and to hope for because if getting the vaccine means that just nothing changes and we have to wait another few years until everyone gets it, there’s already a lot of people not getting it.”

She went on to say that she believed the Biden administration should remove Fauci, apparently angered because “he can’t tell me that if I get the vaccine if I’ll be able to have dinner with my family.”

“So I’m over Dr. Fauci. 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 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.”

Several hours after the show aired, McCain appeared to double down on her sentiments in a tweet.

Many of you can keep worshiping at the alter of Fauchi. I’m not a phony – i will not go on tv and lie saying one thing privately and another on air. This is my opinion. We need someone else in charge of coronavirus messaging and leadership.

When asked by Bash on Sunday when he thought things would be getting “back to normal,” Fauci said that he could imagine Americans wearing masks into next year.

“You know, I think it is possible that that’s the case and, again, it really depends on what you mean by normality. I …read more
