Meghan McCain blasted Katie Couric and others who have called for the “deprogramming” of Trump supporters by saying Monday on ABC’s “The View” that “they can go to hell.”

McCain, a co-host of the daytime talk show, went after the veteran journalist Couric, who told Bill Maher earlier this month: “I also think some of them are believing the garbage that they are being fed 24/7 on the internet, by their constituents, and they bought into this big lie. And the question is how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump.”

Others in media over the past couple weeks, including one of McCain’s “The View” co-hosts, Sunny Hostin, have called Trump supporters “brainwashed” or in need of “deprogramming.”

“Instead we’re hearing a lot of language from people like Katie Couric that Republicans like me need to be ‘deprogrammed,’ that we’re ‘brainwashed’—that 74 million Americans are basically irredeemable people, that we don’t need to communicate towards or in any way have anything to do with,” McCain said. “I think it’s horribly dangerous for the country and I also think it’s horribly dangerous for Democrats.”

“If you don’t care about unity, you should care about the politics of this,” McCain continued, “because right now there is a vacuum to pick up the four people—four in ten Republicans who feel very disenfranchised, and if President Biden and Democrats want to have a big tent party and include some of these people, great, and if we’re all just deplorable and need to be reprogrammed as Katie Couric said, then honestly they can go to hell, because I don’t need to be deprogrammed,” McCain said.

“I just have a different perspective on how the government should be run,” she added.

McCain, who is the sole conservative on the show, has been very critical of former President Donald Trump. In the 2020 presidential election, she voted for President Joe Biden, who was a longtime friend of her father, the late Arizona Sen. John McCain (R), whom Trump had attacked for his time as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’

Published

supply chain

The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”

The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”

An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.

In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.

Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”

As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”

Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
