Meghan McCain Calls Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s Comments on Praying amid the Pandemic ‘Dangerous’

The View co-host Meghan McCain recently called Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s comments about praying amid the coronavirus outbreak “dangerous.” According to The Christian Post, Hasselbeck, who herself is a former host of The View, appeared on the show in early March, before stay-at-home orders were put in place.

“I think there can be a fine line between what is taking precaution, and what is panic,” Hasselbeck said while speaking about the coronavirus outbreak. “Yes, we’re going to take precautions, we’re going to Purell, pray that God’s got us in our tomorrows. We pray that this coronavirus is extinguished, that it stops in its tracks,” she said.

Hasselbeck also noted that she would not let the coronavirus “rule” her. She said, “I think we should prepare, I think we should pray. I’m not going to let coronavirus rule me and let it be an idol,” she said, “and I do think our leadership right now is pointing us to say, ‘Hey, this is not a panic situation.’ This is a precautionary situation, we’re going to use Purell, wash our hands — we’re going to be okay, guys.’”

Golly. Getting kids to bed and apparently @meghanmccain is tossing out some anger my way . Meghan- i am going to call you and handle this in the best socially distanced direct manner possible – but hey girl – We are all just doing our best, and I don’t know why you are taking an opportunity to be so aggressive toward me during such a stressful time. #1- I have always liked you and been a vocal defender of your family. I sure did not see this one coming. #2- we are all just trying to do our best, we should not be judging one another we should be in this together #3- get your quotes right. I never said I had the power to pray covid away. The day at the view I came to visit y’all because our hometown had been slammed with a tornado and lives were lost and a school needed help and I was trying to get word out. Nyc was not even in social distancing yet. It was March 11th- it was before anyone was even quarantining – It was the last day the show was in studio, and your major was still encouraging visitors to Chinatown and still working out in gyms! #4 my quote was that I am going to pray and purell. #5 PRAYER will ALWAYS be my FIRST RESPONSE AND MY BEST DEFENSE 🙏🏻💕 We have had a family member hospitalized and I have asthma. This is all hard and stressful enough- turn off the meanness as The world needs more togetherness and kindness. I’m praying today that you can lay off throwing the social darts at me. I am not sure why you decided to do this. I’m a momma on my knees in prayer like many others – let’s get back in the same side and be #inthistogether 🙏🏻💕
