Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), might not be in the best graces of the Trump-centric side of the Republican party, but what she said yesterday about Dr. Anthony Fauci is something with which many conservatives will undoubtedly agree.
According to The Hill, “The View” cohost dropped a bombshell on Monday, calling for President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser on COVID-19 to be fired, citing Fauci’s “inconsistent messaging” throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“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,” McCain said.
The host went on to criticize Fauci for making confusing statements on how, exactly, many Americans would finally receive their COVID-19 vaccination, claiming that instructions, so far, have been inconsistent.
“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,” McCain said.

According to the New York Post, McCain doubled down on her anti-Fauci rant on Tuesday. McCain attacked Fauci for putting out an “intentional lie” toward the beginning of the pandemic last year when he clearly stated that there was no need for Americans to wear masks.
“He told me not to wear a mask and that masks don’t work when I was 3 months pregnant in the middle of Manhattan. He then later admitted it was an intentional lie so we would donate masks to essential workers. Now I’m being told to wear 2 masks. But yes I’m ‘misguided,'” McCain tweeted on Tuesday.
