The prominent Republican reacted to a recent CNN interview in which Fauci declined to provide a recommendation on whether vaccinated grandparents can visit their unvaccinated children and grandchildren.
“So I was very frustrated when I saw this clip,” McCain said. The TV host then stressed that she had “respect” for the “tragedy” of the coronavirus pandemic and did not want to appear to “downplay” its devastating impact.
“That being said,” McCain added, “next week it will be a year since we left the studio and I have been very responsible in many ways, as so many Americans have been. And the fact that Dr. Fauci is continuing on CNN and he can’t tell me if I get the vaccine, if I can have dinner with my family.
“It’s a terribly inconsistent message and it continues to be an inconsistent message,” she said.
But it was McCain’s suggestion that Dr Fauci doesn’t understand the science and should be removed from his federal position that seemed to irritate some viewers.
“The fact that I, Meghan McCain, co-host of View, I don’t know when or how I will be able to get the vaccine because the rollout for my age group and my health is so nebulous that I have no idea when and how I will get it, ”a McCain said.

She added: “I want to be responsible and obviously wait my turn, 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 change 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.

McCain’s statements have not been well received by the public, at least according to reactions on Twitter.
“It’s deaf,” tweeted journalist Ernest owens. “I have a better idea. @ABC, fire McCain for his keen sense of the law. “

After McCain’s comments, co-host Sunny hostin stepped in to defend Dr Fauci and said Trump should be blamed for the country’s pandemic woes, not Fauci.
“Former disgraced twice impeached President Trump for a term downplayed science [and] keeps people out of science… other countries haven’t. He politicized the masks, he had these super-spreader events. Because of that, Americans are dead, ”Hostin said.
“I think we have to listen to the scientists. I don’t think we need to denigrate Fauci. I don’t think it’s necessary to denigrate the World Health Organization. I don’t think we have to denigrate the CDC. If, as Americans, we would just follow the science and listen to the leaders in these fields who have dedicated their lives to saving lives, we would have been in a much better place.
