McCain Scorches Panicky Left, Media Not ‘Following Science’ on Vaccines, Masks

Meghan McCain once again called out the media and the left’s hypocrisy on coronavirus guidelines, on The View Monday. 

The hosts were discussing the confusing reversal from the CDC late last week suddenly conceding that the science says vaccinated individuals need not wear masks inside anymore. 

While the liberal hosts were puzzled or distraught over the about-face, the conservative co-host scorched the left for fear mongering about conservative states not “following the science” in previous months by lifting mandates, only for themselves now to not follow the science saying vaccinated individuals are at no real risk of getting the virus.

Before this, co-host Joy Behar admitted she was yelled at by a butcher in New York for taking off her mask because Governor Cuomo hadn’t lifted the mask mandates yet. Sunny Hostin worried about people lying about being vaccinated so they wouldn’t have to wear masks inside. She fretted that states with “low vaccination rates” would have spikes from people lying:

“What I’m worried about, Whoopi, is what happens when there are states that have this low vaccination rates and those people are lying to each other and we see a spike again. I think we’ll be in a never ending loop and that concerns me,” she fretted. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg, who said just a few weeks ago that she would wear masks outside into her 90s, sympathized with her vaccinated peers who were too afraid to take off their masks. To McCain she asked:

What is it going to take you think for people to get comfortable following not just the science, but their own science, what is comfortable for them? Do you think people just have to do what they feel is best for them, rather than get all flustered by the 500,000 messages we’re getting?” she wondered.

McCain first rejected the notion that “science” was dependent on someone’s level of comfort or paranoia:

“Yeah, I mean, I don’t think there’s differentiation between science. I don’t think there’s your own science and then someone else’s science. Science is science,” she said adding that the vaccines are over 90% effective against getting the virus.

She slammed the left and the CDC for politicizing the virus, particularly in red states, and called out journalists like Rachel Maddow for being “irrational,” “reacting emotionally and not following their own science:”

MCCAIN: [B]ut I think at this point it’s just irrational and emotional especially when the CDC director is saying we’re coming up on impending doom. Impending doom sounds like the apocalypse. If there was impending doom, then Florida and Texas would be hellscapes of death and we’d have to have the National Guard coming in and saving people. That’s not what’s happening. My family and friends in Arizona are living life normal. And guess what? There’s not impending doom. There’s not fire and fury and hellscape everywhere. This is irrational. People are reacting emotionally and not following their own science. I actually  want to show a clip of Rachel Maddow doing this:

RACHEL MADDOW: I feel like I’m going to have to rewire myself and when I see someone not wearing a mask I don’t instantly think you’re a threat, or you are selfish or you are a COVID denier and you definitely haven’t been vaccinated. We have to rewire the way we look at each other because the CDC’s guidance which she just told me,  is if you’re vaccinated, you don’t need to wear a mask except in very specific circumstances. 

MCCAIN: The CDC guidance changed in one week and it was political because we have to go back to work and inflation numbers are bad and unemployment is bad. I’m over the politicalization, the emotional aspect of this

She finished her response telling liberals to do what they’ve been lecturing everyone else to for over a year now: “But I really implore the same people that told me to follow science for the past year, you follow science as well.”

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Okay. Meghan, is it going to — what is it going to take you think for people to get comfortable following not just the science, but their own science, what is comfortable for them? Do you think people just have to do what they feel is best for them, rather than get all flustered by the 500,000 messages we’re getting? 

MEGHAN MCCAIN: Yeah,  I mean, I don’t think there’s differentiation between science. I don’t think there’s your own science and then someone else’s science. Science is science. I’ve been lectured to for years as a Republican about climate change saying follow the science. Follow the science when you get vaccinated and you have a 90% chance of– You have 90% not risking infection or that was — I’m sorry. I’m getting this wrong: The risk of infection was reduced by 90% after two shots.” I’m vaccinated—vaccinated. I’m back to life. I will not wear a mask unless I’m required to in a business or place. Obviously I’ll respect what businesses want but I think at this point it’s just irrational and emotional especially when the CDC director is saying we’re coming up on impending doom. Impending doom sounds like the apocalypse. If there was impending doom, then Florida and Texas would be hellscapes of death and we’d have to have the National Guard coming in and saving people. That’s not what’s happening. My family and friends in Arizona are living life normal. And guess what? There’s not impending doom. There’s not fire and fury and hellscape everywhere. This is irrational. People are reacting emotionally and not following their own science. I actually  want to show a clip of Rachel Maddow doing this:

RACHEL MADDOW: I feel like I’m going to have to rewire myself and when I see someone not wearing a mask I don’t instantly think you’re a threat, or you are selfish or you are a COVID denier and you definitely haven’t been vaccinated. We have to rewire the way we look at each other because the CDC’s guidance which she just told me,  is if you’re vaccinated, you don’t need to wear a mask except in very specific circumstances. 

MCCAIN: The CDC guidance changed in one week and it was political because we have to go back to work and inflation numbers are bad and unemployment is bad. I’m over the politicalization, the emotional aspect of this. We have to go back to life. We have to go back to work. I don’t think Ricky Schroeder is helping things by harassing employees. But I really implore the same people that told me to follow science for the past year, you follow science as well.
