“The View” went off the rails again on Friday as cohosts Meghan McCain and Joy Behar argued over guidelines for COVID-19 vaccines.
McCain and Behar argue over vaccines
In a section discussing the CDC’s new guidelines for masks for people who have been vaccinated, McCain brought up the issue of civil liberties and warned co-workers of the “slippery slope” if the US starts “requiring you to have this vaccination must receive ”. Some of the Liberal campaigners supported the idea that Americans should be forced to provide proof of vaccination before entering various facilities and businesses.
“They should ask that you show proof of vaccination,” said Behar. “When I go to a theater or a restaurant or a museum, I want to make sure that everyone who is there is vaccinated. I don’t understand what the big deal is that people can’t prove it [that]. ”

McCain had none of it, however.
“When it comes to having to show proof of vaccination, there are many civil liberties here just from a legal perspective if the government requires you to get this vaccination,” she said. “I mean, this is a very, very slippery slope.”
After McCain said she was “skeptical” and “inherently contrary,” he added, “I ask the government every step of the way. Although I have been vaccinated, I would find it very, very difficult if I went national would be charged to do things. “
Behar Loes It
“I don’t understand why this violates a civil right,” said Behar, citing other “rules and regulations” such as seat belts and driver’s licenses. “

“It violates my civil rights if you come in unvaccinated,” she said when McCain heard her correct by saying “civil liberty.”
Navarro stepped in, saying “the government doesn’t make vaccines mandatory” and then wondered why we “can’t allow private companies to ask for proof of vaccination”.
“That’s fine, but people can fake it,” McCain said, referring to CDC vaccination cards. “There’s already a black market for that.”
“There has to be a way to control it,” said Behar. “I’m not talking about federal buildings, I’m mainly talking about private companies, that’s all. A restaurant is a privately owned establishment and people should be able to say to anyone who comes into my restaurant, “You need to be vaccinated.”
“That’s all I say,” concluded Behar as she tossed her hands in the air.
