Meghan McCain may be the only conservative host on The View, but that doesn't mean the White House wants her help in convincing Republicans to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
It was reported that the talk show host reached out to the White House to offer her help in their campaign to get people vaccinated — and she didn't receive a response. McCain, 36, personally reached out to President Joe Biden's administration and said she and her brother, Jimmy McCain, could get vaccinated on live television, according to a report.
Meanwhile, cohost Whoopi Goldberg was briefed by the White House about the vaccine campaign and what she could do to help the rollout, Politico Playbook reported. An insider explained that McCain "just wanted to help with messaging and encouraging Republicans to get it" and was upset about the preferred treatment shown towards Goldberg.
However, a White House source explained that the mother-of-one wasn't briefed because she was not eligible to receive the vaccine at the time.
The blonde beauty has never shied away from sharing her thoughts regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and how the White House is handling it all. In fact, she recently butted heads with cohost Joy Behar last week while discussing the groups of people who are refusing to get the vaccine.
The heated debate began when Behar insisted Republicans are the only people who aren’t getting vaccinated. According to Behar, Republicans are refusing to get the vaccine because they want to "own the libs," referring to Democrats.
McCain refuted Behar's statement, noting that many people are scared of the possible side effects, and it has nothing to do with Republicans wanting to own "the libs." She said multiple demographics, such as the African-American community and women, are hesitant to get vaccinated. According to McCain, many women fear the effect the vaccine may have on them in their child bearing years.
McCain also slammed the White House and CDC for their failure to assuage people's concerns by answering questions many may have.
In response, Behar said, "A lot of people of color have every right to be skeptical of the government. They have been burned for generations by various policies." McCain was quick to jump in to clarify her stance, insisting she wasn't saying people of color don't have a right to be cautious.
As the debate continued to heat up, McCain slammed Behar for coming on the show and sharing "factually inaccurate" information about the "demographics who are not getting the vaccine."
