While her father was widely respected and admired on both sides of the political aisle, Meghan McCain isn’t and never will be. And she proved why that’s the case with remarks she made Tuesday, blaming Vice President Kamala Harris for the fact that many Trumpers and Republicans are refusing to be vaccinated for COVID.
How exactly is the VP to blame? McCain’s bizarre logic is something Harris said during the 2020 campaign about not trusting any vaccine that had been rushed out by Trump in an attempt to win the election.
According to Mediaite, this is how McCain attempted to explain her BS theory:
“Meghan McCain used a clip of Vice President Harris to explain Republican hesitancy to take the Covid-19 vaccine, and also blamed President Joe Biden for failing to give former President Donald Trump credit for the vaccine rollout.
“On Tuesday’s edition of ABC’s The View, host Whoopi Goldberg talked about the recent polling that shows 41 percent of Republicans won’t get vaccinated, and asked McCain how she personally feels about getting vaccinated.
“McCain began by expressing her willingness to be vaccinated live on the show, and added that ‘I’d let them put an iPad Nano between my shoulder blades if it means I can get drunk at Caesar’s Palace again — which is not an approved treatment or prevention regimen for Covid-19. She then showed a clip in which candidate Harris spoke last summer.”
Specifically, Harris told CNN’s Dana Bash
Considering that Trump lied more often than he drew a breath of air, Harris was right to not take the former president’s word for anything, especially a matter of life and death.
That one comment from Harris led McCain to conclude that the Veep is to blame, as if any Trump supporter would use Harris as a rationale for not taking a coronavirus vaccine. McCain asserted:
No, both sides are not equally responsible for this. That’s just a giant lie masquerading as proof of a dubious theory.
Trump and his right-wing media apologists are to blame for the fact that many on the right won’t take the vaccine. But if they want to risk the chance of getting the disease and dying, let them. Many of them won’t be around for the next presidential election with that sort of mindset.
