"The View" co-host Meghan McCain continued to call out Dr. Anthony Fauci for inconsistent messaging related to the coronavirus pandemic on Tuesday, scolding him for "an intentional lie" about how many masks Americans should wear.
McCain first slammed the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases on Monday for declining say whether people who have received the coronavirus vaccination were safe to spend time with grandchildren and other extended family members.

MEGHAN MCCAIN CALLS FOR BIDEN TO REPLACE DR. FAUCI OVER ‘INCONSISTENT' CORONAVIRUS VACCINE MESSAGING
"The fact that Dr. Fauci is going on CNN and he can’t tell me if I get the vaccine, I’ll be able to have dinner with my family," McCain said. "It’s terribly inconsistent messaging and it continues to be inconsistent messaging."
McCain said that she "would like something to look forward to" and dismissed the notion that vaccinated Americans can’t resume a somewhat normal life.
"I’m over Dr. Fauci. I think we need to have more people giving more opinions and I honestly, quite frankly, I think the Biden administration should remove him and put someone else in place that maybe does understand science or can talk to other countries about how we can be more like these places that are doing this successfully," McCain said.
FAUCI DOWNPLAYS CONCERNS OVER COVID-19 VARIANTS, BUT CLAIMS VARIANT VACCINES IN DEVELOPMENT
After sleeping on it, McCain, who serves as the lone conservative voice on "The View," didn’t exactly change her mind. She responded on Twitter to someone who called her criticism of Fauci "misguided" and didn’t hold back.
"He told me not to wear a mask and that masks don’t work when I was 3 months pregnant in the middle of Manhattan. He then later admitted it was an intentional lie so we would donate masks to essential workers," McCain wrote. "Now I’m being told to wear 2 masks."

She added an eye-rolling emoji and slammed Fauci as "incredibly inconsistent and confusing" in a follow-up tweet.
"The messaging is incredibly inconsistent and confusing. I voiced my frustration honestly despite the fact that if you and twitter don’t like it, I represent the feelings of many Americans. I also believe sainting our public figures to infallibility is dangerous and irrational," McCain wrote.Brian Flood covers the media for Fox News. Follow him on Twitter at @briansflood.

NYC Pride announces theme for 2021: The Fight Continues
NEW YORK (WABC) -- NYC Pride has announced the official theme for 2021 is: "The Fight Continues."
"The Fight Continues" reflects the multitude of battles that have been fought both throughout the country and the city.
There are many ongoing fights: the COVID pandemic, police brutality, an alarming murder rate for trans POC, economic hardship, climate disasters, violent efforts to disenfranchise voters, and the rights of the LGBTQIA community being questioned at the level of the Supreme Court.
"Within this acknowledgement of what we're fighting for and the challenges we face, we also must find the strength - together - to continue the fight," said André Thomas, NYC Pride Co-Chair. "We're fighting for ourselves, fighting for the BIPOC and trans members of our community, and fighting for future generations. By making this the 2021 theme for NYC Pride, we acknowledge all that we've accomplished and look towards what still needs to be done. NYC Pride events offer an opportunity to gather in community and highlight the diversity, resilience, and power of the LGBTQIA+ community, giving us the energy and spirit we need to continue the fight."
The NYC Pride 2021 roster of events will take place during Pride Month in June.
Among the major events are the NYC Pride March on June 27, which will be presented in a virtual format as well as some in-person elements, and The Rally on June 25, which will feature a diverse array of speakers and activists.
PrideFest and Pride Island will also return on June 27. Further details will be revealed at a later time.
"We're pleased to continue to be able to offer a diverse roster of programming this year," said David A. Correa, Interim Executive Director of NYC Pride. "In 2020 our world dramatically changed very quickly and in a matter of weeks we were forced to pivot to virtual programming and cancel many of our events. With much more time to prepare in 2021, we're bringing back many of the events we were forced to cancel last year, most notably Youth Pride which will engage LGBTQIA+ youth, many of whom are grappling with the absence of in-person connection."
NYC Pride is also unveiling its 2021 visual campaign. Captured by photographer Cait Oppermann, this year's campaign features a multitude of queer, trans, and BIPOC members and allies of the LGBTQIA+ community, including Gia Love, José Thomas, G Xtravaganza, Krishna Stone, and Reid Jefferson.
