"Meghan McCain used Fox News talking points during Thursday’s episode of “The View,” to claim that Democrats and the media were just as much to blame as President Donald Trump for lying to Americans about COVID-19.
The show’s first topic was about the recent tapes released by veteran reporter Bob Woodward for his upcoming book Rage, in which Trump says he intentionally downplayed the danger of the coronavirus to reduce panic.
Trump was the only leader to receive Homeland Security briefings and extensive updates from the CDC and COVID Task Force about the virus. But McCain attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for encouraging people to go to Chinatown. Pelosi’s comments came after Trump was blaming the Chinese for the virus and Asian Americans started being the target of violence and attacks."
