The View co-host Meghan McCain was no fan of Trump’s while he was handling the pandemic. But she’s also very ‘disappointed’ in President Joe Biden who violated his own mask mandate just hours after issuing it while he spoke at the Lincoln Memorial. McCain also tore into Dr. Fauci and Jeff Bezos on Friday concerning masks.
President Biden signed a number of executive orders after being inaugurated. One of them requires the wearing of masks and social distancing in all federal buildings, on all federal land, and by federal employees and contractors, as well as on airlines, trains, and transit systems traveling between states. The EO ostensibly says that people on federal land “should all wear masks, maintain physical distance, and adhere to other public health measures, as provided in CDC guidelines.”
When President Biden spoke at the Lincoln Memorial Wednesday night just hours after signing the mask mandate, he decided not to wear one. Critics lambasted him for it. And it wasn’t just the president who ignored the COVID precautions either. Several members of his family did as well.
The McCains and the Bidens have long been friends. But that did not stop McCain, who recently gave birth, from roasting the president over his hypocrisy.
When asked her opinion, McCain exclaimed that “the great horror of living in America right now is the absolute and complete and total breakdown of trust in our institutions.”
“We had President Biden … him and his family, they’re not wearing — after mandating and requiring for people to wear masks on federal property — he and his family were not wearing masks out,” McCain said. “So again, I think the rules for thee, not for me that [has] been going on for a long time in the Trump administration, and now you’re seeing President Biden — I was really disappointed that he wasn’t wearing a mask.”
Liberals on Twitter proceeded to torch McCain for voicing her opinion and to call for more censorship on The View.
During a Thursday press conference, press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about Biden’s lack of masks and explained: “He was celebrating an evening of a historic day in our country… surrounded by his family, we take a number of precautions, but I think we have bigger issues to worry about.”

McCain saved some vitriol for Dr. Anthony Fauci, now a White House adviser for the pandemic, over his inconsistent remarks about wearing masks early in the pandemic. He initially said they were not effective or necessary but has since reversed his opinion on the matter. McCain insisted it’s okay to hold Fauci’s “feet to the fire” for his role in handling the virus.
“I was pregnant in New York City when the pandemic broke out. I had a bunch of masks and I ended up giving them away because they said it doesn’t do anything and you don’t need it … but I was lied to,” McCain angrily recounted.
Then Meghan went after Jeff Bezos and Amazon. She slammed them for withholding support for the federal rollout of coronavirus vaccines until Biden won the election “after months of complete silence,” suggesting the company’s actions were “political.”
“I would also like to say, Amazon, I don’t really understand why you’re now offering the Biden administration help with Covid vaccines after months of complete silence from Trump, because that seems political as well,” McCain added. “So why does Jeff Bezos all of a sudden want to help with vaccine distribution, but he didn’t during the Trump administration? There is a lot of blame to go around everywhere. Yes, President Trump was integral in spreading false information, but I’m not about to give Dr. Fauci a profile and courage award this morning.”
It should be noted that feckless Dr. Fauci is making headlines for saying the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic “very likely” cost American lives, adding that it felt “liberating” to be able to speak about COVID without fear of repercussions.
