Sarah joy ehar har- sunny hostile and megan mccain and ana navarro now. Let's get things started. Hello and welcome to the view here. We are another friday. And everyone's wanting to get back to normal life. But the latest report. From the cdc has pushed that timeline back it found the delta variant is not only more deadly it spreads as easily as wait for it chickenpox. They're asking officials to keep pushing vaccines and reinstate mask mandates which just caused house republicans to storm the senate in protest temper tantrums. Like that aren't going to get us out of this. So what's it going to take people to be part of the solution and not part of the problem. I tell you when. I saw that spectacle yesterday of all those house. Republicans storming the senate. I don't think i had seen that many clowns outside of a volkswagen and a circus in a long long time. And it's doing nothing to help the progress of fighting coal that it's making no contribution and i think we all have to focus on that. Think we're going to have to have an all types of approach right. There's going to have incentives like the president announced yesterday and like some corporations and some states and cities are doing there is going to have to be some sticks. So there's going to be carrots and sticks. There's things that people are not going to be able to do. If they don't have proof of vaccine dining places go to broadway do certain things. I don't think people should be able to go on planes. If they don't have proof of vaccination so we need to figure out ways to make to to have people feel some pain and we have to continue the outreach. And yesterday when i was watching the news i probably to me. The best messengers right now are not celebrities. Not politicians not preachers. You know what it's those patients that are in the hospital saying. I'm so angry with myself for not having been vaccinated. I thought this wasn't going to be a big deal but here i am because what we are learning what we have learned in this last month. Is that kovic and fighting. Colby is not an individual sport. It is a team sport. And even if we get a perfect ten if somebody doesn't show up if somebody doesn't score if somebody doesn't get the vaccination we are all affected. We are all being held back and we are all being held hostage. And it is not fair to grandson or sarah's children or ps grandchild or grandchildren. We can't do this to our children. I would think the incentives should be the vaccine itself but alas it is not sunny. What did you think about house. Republicans going on a field trip to the senate without masks yesterday. Well you know. I am not surprised because when you look at the numbers joy. I mean house. Republicans fifty four percent of them are unvaccinated compared to a hundred percent of democratic members of the house. So i'm not surprised that they're doing this. Because it's very clear that republicans have decided to politicize the virus. They've politicize the vaccine. Politicized the mask a mask wearing this is part of their game plan because they think it's a winning strategy rather than work on true legislation like the infrastructure bill and other things to help really help the american people. I think that when you have someone some folks like marjorie taylor. Green and matt gaetz. Who actually sort of have a press conference for the political prisoners as they call them who participated in the january six insurrection. Those are the folks that we saw walking into the senate. You have lauren beaubourg. You know they're moronic exactly like nancy. Pelosi said it's moronic and it's just evidence of kevin mccarthy's acceptance of his new big tent. Party cunanan members insurrectionist now anti vaccine anti massacres. What doesn't make sense to me is. Why are they pushing this when really it's their constituents that are going to die from this. We now know that forty six percents of conservative. Republicans are those that are refusing to take the vaccine so this is not about other. Don't want to hear anything about false equivalency so this is an unvaccinated problem and it's a republican problem. That's where the messaging is coming from. All right thank you for that meghan given this new data of people ready to manage your expectations about when we get back to normal. Do you think. I think that the white house should be honest with the american public and say there is no going back to normal and that taking off the maths was just a ruse and they'll probably be lockdowns and again americans who wanna live as i said yesterday. I think this is literally going to become a state by state issue. And if you don't wanna live under masking and you don't wanna live under these mandates. Unfortunately you're probably going to have to move to a state where they're not gonna do it like in arizona. Look i made myself clear yesterday. I wish that there was a little bit of energy coming from democrats particularly in washington. Dc where. I'm at right now about the violence going on and the homicide rate because quite frankly i have a higher likelihood of getting shot leaving this building than i do of getting cove aid from july fourteen. To twenty-eight there were four cova desk and eleven homicides in washington dc so again. There's a lot of problems and there's a lot of ways to die. But i wish that republicans or excuse me democrats would care about. That is well. You don't have to listen to me. There are people like david axelrod. Who have come out saying a advisor to president. Obama coming out saying that it's really hard to incentivize people. Once you've had taken away in politics and we were told we wouldn't have to wear masks and yes i guess. The data is changing. And now we're told that we have to wear them including inside here in washington. Dc and there's very little high have very little hope that we're going to be pulling out of this. I think there's going to be more and more variance variance and unfortunately this is the new normal and until we get different leadership in in the white house. I have a lotta hopes that this is ever going to end one final thing if the white house truly wanted to show that. This was a bipartisan. Issue that this is about getting everybody vaccinated not just democrats. they should give a little credit to president trump. And it's hard for me to say that because i don't like president trump but fast and furious did work and he got vaccines doubt in the amount of time that was fast and furious like said he would and when jen psaki has asked about it she's very cavalier and quite frankly snarky saying well. We don't need to give him an engraved invitation at this point. If it's this serious that we're gonna lock down the country and everybody has to wear mass again including by the way two year olds then you should probably invite president trump or someone in trump land to help get the messaging out because until then we're just being held hostage until this may be never passes one opened his gagging him..
