Meghan McCain does not have the world’s easiest job. She is the co-host of a show where the other hosts are largely liberal. The audience for the show also skews liberal and McCain frequently takes the brunt of their vitriol.
But she is wildly unpopular for a reason. And that reason was on display today when she went after renowned immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci, who the White House is currently running a smear campaign against. McCain took the administration’s talking points to heart and said she has “turned on” Fauci.
The conservative pundit told the audience, “I just think the thing about the cult of personality around Dr. Fauci now is he gets all the glory when things are going well, and none of the responsibility when things aren’t going well.”

McCain continued, “We’re not winning this battle like a lot of other countries are, and is all the blame just simply President Trump? And everything good gets given to Dr. Fauci and everything bad gets given to President Trump? It’s a narrative that may work with some circles, but it’s not flying with I think a lot of people in other parts of the country.”
McCain ended her rant:
“I have turned on him more than I think the women on the rest of the show have because, again, I think there has to be some responsibility for why we’re still in the position that we are right now. I don’t think he’s a bad man — he’s certainly credited with helping us through the AIDS crisis — but I don’t think of him in the same way that the rest of the show does.”
