McCain, who has been appearing remotely on ABC’s

Meghan McCain laid into these who were still not taking the threat of coronavirus severely — especially those in hard-hit cities like New York.

McCain, who has been appearing remotely on ABC’s “The View” since saying her pregnancy, made the comments during Monday’s show following President Donald Trump’s announcement that social distancing guidelines would stay in place until at least April 30.
Sunny Hostin began the segment by means of quoting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who over the weekend had accused Trump of fiddling while American people were dying, saying, “We know that New York is in dire straits, that New York wishes more ventilators, New York needs more PPEs. All across the country, we’re going to be seeing worse and worse situations. I suppose that Trump is now realizing that we are in this pandemic and in dire straits, and now is the time to hold him to account.”
I would push back — sorry, Meghan. I don’t want to step on you. I would push back on that a simply little bit. I think consistently, we have said, ‘we have to beat this first,’ and I think we haven’t seen the worst of it yet from what the docs are saying,” Sara Haines weighed in, arguing that there was a time and a place to criticize the president but that everyone need to be focusing first on dealing with coronavirus.

“There’s plenty to be discussed on that,” Haines continued. “I don’t think we’ve beat the virus yet, so I think that’s some thing I’m going to hold off on yet.”

“No kidding we haven’t beaten the virus yet,” McCain fired back. “There are trucks with body baggage being put into ventilated Mack trucks in Brooklyn right now. Central Park is filled with medic tents, and we have the USS Comfort pulling into New York’s harbor today. So no kidding, we haven’t beat the virus.”

McCain went on to say that her main challenge was the number of people across America who nevertheless appeared to not be taking the threat seriously.

“Andrew Cuomo said New York is the canary in the coal mine,” she continued. “Because it hasn’t impacted every person else yet, doesn’t mean it won’t impact them in a few weeks, and my concern is you’re still seeing human beings going out. You’re seeing people not social distancing in many different cities, and I don’t understand what it’s going to take for the American public to wake up to the truth that people are dying at an absolutely exorbitant rate. The only time American records will have more less people dying are the World War I, World War II and the Civil War.”

“No kidding we haven’t crushed the virus yet,” McCain fired back. “There are trucks with body bags being put into ventilated Mack trucks in Brooklyn proper now. Central Park is filled with medic tents, and we have the USS Comfort pulling into New York’s harbor today. So no kidding, we haven’t beat the virus.”

McCain went on to say that her main concern was the wide variety of people across America who still appeared to now not be taking the threat seriously.

“Andrew Cuomo said New York is the canary in the coal mine,” she continued. “Because it hasn’t impacted everybody else yet, doesn’t mean it won’t affect them in a few weeks, and my concern is you’re still seeing people going out. You’re seeing people now not social distancing in many different cities, and I don’t understand what it’s going to take for the American public to wake up to the fact that people are loss of life at an absolutely exorbitant rate. The only time American history will have more much less people dying are the World War I, World War II and the Civil War.”
