Memorial Day weekend was a chance for families and friends to get together again after many states began cautiously lifting their stay at home orders. Governors urged people to still practice social distancing and wear masks, but not everyone followed suit.
Pictures from all over the country surfaced of people overcrowding beaches and pools and partying like Coronoavirus never existed.
Meghan McCain, one of the more conservative voices on ABC’s The View, voiced her concern over the behavior and blasted the people in the photos, saying their behavior is a “slap in the face to first responders.”
McCain, who is expecting her first child, noted she’s been quarantined for months. “All I want to do by August is be able to buy a crib for my baby in a store and visit my father’s grave. That’s it. That’s all I want to do before August.”
“To see people sort of like rubbing their nose at all the sacrifices of our first responders and there’s still so much unknown about this virus, look, I’ve been very, very disheartened,” McCain said.
She says it’s not a red state or blue state problem and it’s prevalent everywhere.
