Meghan McCain's time on The View may be coming to an end, but it doesn't look like she'll stop sharing her, often polarizing, opinions any time soon.

The conservative voice of The View and daughter of late Republican senator John McCain recently took to Twitter, offering a controversial opinion that people have "ample reason" to question science.

In the tweet, McCain shared a tweet by Frank Luntz, a political strategist and pollster, who left the Republican Party at the beginning of the year.

Luntz's tweet highlighted results from a recent Gallup poll, showing faith in science from Republicans shrank from 72% in 1975 to 45% today, while in contrast the Democrats science faith grew from 67% to 79% in the the same amount of time.

The timing of McCain's controversial statement comes at a particularly polarizing time in the US. The Delta variant of Covid-19 is spreading throughout the country and new cases are once again on the rise, largely in unvaccinated populations of conservative states.

Replies condemning McCain's Tweet swiftly began to flood her Twitter page.

Several pointed out factual errors in her message and questioned how someone with her education could make such an illogical argument.







McCain's critics were out in force.







McCain's days of sparring with Joy Behar and her other co-hosts on The View will be a thing of the past at the end of July.

But it seems clear McCain will have no shortage of opponents on Twitter.
