Why Meghan McCain Still Wore a Marchesa Wedding Dress After the Harvey Weinstein Scandal
When Meghan McCain walked down the aisle to marry Ben Domenech, she did not care that her wedding dress designer was entangled in a major controversy.
Today on The View, Meghan McCain called on President Joe Biden to replace Dr. Anthony Fauci and complained that someone like her, a co-host on The View, should know when and where she'd be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Dr. Fauci was a guest on the show and remained vague about things like when things would get back to "normal" and how long Americans would have to wear masks. McCain wasn't quiet about her opinions or her privilege.
"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. "I want to get it. If you call me at three o'clock in the morning, I will go any place at any time to get it."
She also suggested that Dr. Biden doesn't "understand science" and that the messaging surrounding coronavirus has been too mixed-up.
"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 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," she finished.
Twitter users were quick to call her out, calling her clueless, oblivious, disrespectful, and plenty of other things. Before the segment went to a commercial break, McCain seemed to see the backlash coming for her.
"I know what I'm saying is controversial, I really do," she said. "But I'm not a phony and I'm not going to come on air and say something different than what I'm saying privately."
I’ve been volunteering at largest vaccine site in AZ, where I grew up (as did Meghan McCain). I’ve seen patients in BMWs on way to golf and others in beaters coming off a night shift. All are treated the same.
What I view as a great equalizer is what Meghan view as “a disaster.” https://t.co/HqEdcRiUx9

parents: make sure your children understand they're not the center of the universe, so they don't grow up to be Meghan McCain

I, like many Americans, don’t know when or how I will be able to get a vaccine
But as for Meghan McCain, Princess of Arizona, ...don’t they know who she is?!

The only time I hear about The View is when Meghan McCain says something dumb.

Even the usually tame account Rate My Skype Room offered a scathing comment.
