During Monday’s episode of ‘The View,’ McCain had strong words for Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert who oversees the country’s COVID-19 response
Meghan McCain is no stranger to causing an uproar for making unpopular statements, and her latest comments about Dr. Anthony Fauci has once again made her a trending topic.
During Monday’s episode of The View, McCain had strong words for the nation’s top infectious disease expert, who serves as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and oversees the country’s COVID-19 response.

The prominent Republican reacted to a recent CNN interview in which Fauci declined to provide a recommendation about whether vaccinated grandparents can visit their unvaccinated children and grandchildren.
“So I was very frustrated when I saw this clip,” said McCain. The TV host then emphasized that she has “respect” for the “tragedy” of the coronavirus pandemic and didn’t 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 different ways as so many Americans have been. And the fact that Dr. Fauci is going on CNN and he can’t tell me that if I get the vaccine, if I’ll be able to have dinner with my family.
“It’s terribly inconsistent messaging and it continues to be inconsistent messaging,” she said.
But it was McCain’s suggestion that Dr. Fauci doesn’t understand science and should be removed from his federal position that appeared to anger some viewers.
“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,” said McCain.
