Meghan McCain on Tuesday doubled-down on her attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci — accusing him of putting people at risk with an “intentional lie” about masks when COVID-19 first ravaged the Big Apple.
“The View” co-host ripped into the White House infectious disease expert as she defended her call Monday for him to be replaced with someone who “understands science.”
“He told me not to wear a mask and that masks don’t work when I was 3 months pregnant in the middle of Manhattan,” tweeted McCain, 36, who gave birth to daughter, Liberty, in September.
“He then later admitted it was an intentional lie so we would donate masks to essential workers. Now I’m being told to wear 2 masks.
“But yes I’m ‘misguided,’” wrote McCain, the daughter of late Sen. John McCain, with obvious sarcasm.
“The messaging is incredibly inconsistent and confusing,” she added in a follow-up tweet, saying she represents “the feelings of many Americans.”
McCain started a firestorm Monday when she feuded with co-host Whoopi Goldberg, saying she was “over Dr. Fauci.”
“Quite frankly, I think the Biden administration should remove him and put someone in place that does understand science,” she said.
In Tuesday’s tweets, she said she “voiced my frustration honestly” on the show, adding, “I also believe sainting our public figures to infallibility is dangerous and irrational.”
