On Friday’s episode of the ABC talk show “The View,” conservative cohost Meghan McCain shredded Democrats for pushing for mask mandates to be reimposed while also ignoring the spike in crime that is happening in cities across America.
McCain went so far as to say that in Washington D.C., where she is currently living, she has more of a chance of being shot than she does of contracting the coronavirus.
“I think that the White House should be honest with America and say that there is no going back to normal and that taking off the mask was just a ruse, and there’ll probably be lockdowns, and again… if you don’t want to live under masking, if you don’t want to live under these mandates, unfortunately, you’re probably going to have to move to a state where they’re not gonna do it,” McCain began.
“I wish there was a little bit of energy coming from Democrats, particularly in Washington, D.C. where I’m at right now, [on] the violence going on and the homicide rate because, quite frankly, I have a higher likelihood of getting shot leaving this building than I do of getting COVID,” she added. “From July 14-28 there were four COVID deaths and 11 homicides in Washington, D.C.”
Not stopping there, McCain went on to say that while there are “a lot of problems and a lot of ways to die,” Democrats only seem to care about COVID-19 deaths and about downplaying crime.
“I wish that Democrats would care about that as well,” McCain stated, later adding, “I have very little hope that we’re going to be pulling out of this … Unfortunately, this is the new normal until we get different leadership in the White House, I don’t have a lot of hopes this is ever going to end.”
This came after the CDC recommended earlier this week that even people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 should return to wearing masks indoors, according to Fox News. This led to many Democrat leaders across the country pushing to impose mask mandates once again.
