Fans of the daytime talk show "The View" were enraged after Meghan McCain, 36, the show's co-host, expressed that she is uncertain about when to get the vaccine. Check out the details.


The coronavirus pandemic took the world by surprise, forcing a lot of businesses to fold up. Worse, many people worldwide have lost loved ones, and the battle to eradicate the virus is still one.

Health workers, governments, have implemented specific rules that initiated the curbing of the disease. However, people around the globe have been given an option — a vaccine that could reduce the risk of getting affected.

One of the leading researchers, Dr. Fauci, of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Chief Medical Adviser to the President, recently touched down on the vaccination issue.

Having analyzed the horrific tragedy that cost a million American lives over the past few months during an appearance on CNN, the doctor weighed in on the possibility of being immune to the virus when the News Channel's reporter asked the question.


He explained that it was impossible to ascertain such a conclusion on national TV. The health expert revealed that a comprehensive answer would surface after a closed-door meeting with his team—other credible researchers.

Many critics trolled her for mentioning her entire name profession that she feels over-privileged and proud.


"The View" highlighted this interview during their Monday morning session, after Meghan McCain, the most confrontational and blunt co-host, requested it and further talked about her doubt in the procedure.

McCain's analysis suggested that she does not trust Dr. Fauci's knowledge and is not convinced that he is doing the right job and added that the vaccine rollout had been a disaster. She also quipped:

"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 is so nebulous."


The 36-year-old was hell-bent on justifying her stance as she raved on about the doctor's spill of information. She termed it "terribly inconsistent messaging" while comparing Israel's vaccine success to the country's.

Fans of the "The View" show were not slow to charge at the co-host over her comments concerning the doctor. Many critics trolled her for mentioning her entire name profession that she feels over-privileged and proud. One person tweeted:

"Meghan McCain really just said…'don't know when or how I will be able to get the vaccine' Girl."


Twitter users were not the only ones who disagreed with McCain. After she commented on Dr. Fauci's negligence and blurted that he should be replaced with someone who understands science, her co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, and Joy Behar, threw in their opinions.

Goldberg explained that a country's vaccine success depends on the population and how they respond to the coronavirus prevention directives. She compared Israel to America and concluded that the latter has an overwhelming population.

This is not the first time that critics would backlash the "The View" co-host. However, fans of the show would agree that she is always ready to challenge or engage the naysayers who are opposed to her point of view.
