Meghan McCain: Trump may use coronavirus as ’draconian’ power grab

ABC’s ’The View’ co-host Meghan McCain on Monday said she fears President Trump may exploit the pandemic for a ’draconian’ power grab ’akin to the Patriot Act’ signed into law after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. McCain argued against the suggestion that media should stop covering the president’s daily COVID-19 briefings by saying that she wants the briefings aired to expose Trump’s flaws.

I love how people on the left impeached Trump for abusing his power, which he didn't, and then a few months later are mad at Trump when he refused to go full authoritarian and abuse his power.

Meghan McCain's opinion is not news. As we all know, opinions are like a-holes, and I don't see any reason to care about this one.

It must be an undiscovered law of probability and outcome, that the longer you host “The View” the dumber you become🤔

I suppose a broken clock is right twice a day. In times of emergency those in power inevitably pull more power to themselves under the pretense of "keeping us safe" It happened in the great depression, it happened after 9/11, and it's happening today. However, I think Trump is the least of our worries. He's been incredibly reasonable in all this other than talks of quarantining an entire state. It's the governers and state powers I'm worried about, blatantly disregarding The Constitution to lock us all indoors. We should be staying indoors out of a sense of civic duty, not because our government is forcing us to.

What the hell "may" mean to anyone other than a pointless politicizing of this pandemic ? Tomorrow we all "may" get virus and die. The world economy "may" come down. None of these statements mean anything other than fear mongering to get people panic.

Get her on the spot, no phone, no computer, no prep. Ask her to define 'draconian.' I'd bet my next paycheck she can't give an accurate answer.
