Dear anti-vaxers, your stupidity and arrogance are putting the lives of children in danger! It is nothing short of abominable. https://t.co/RFCQv4UOkf— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) April 19, 2019
McCain didn’t mince words — perhaps as a result of the Saturday Night Live sketch last week in which the “Princess of Arizona,” spoofed by Aidy Bryant, called vaccinations a “personal liberty issue.” In the bit, “Meghan” also seemingly agreed with Jenny McCarthy’s controversial stance on vaccinations. (McCarthy was played by Emma Stone.)
There is no ambiguity in McCain’s “Dear anti-vaxers...” post, leading many to react on social media. First, there was the group surprised to agree with her message after typically disagreeing with her conservative stances on the show.

I rarely agree with you but you could not be more right!!!’— P-nut (@icanfixuok) April 19, 2019
We don't agree on much, Ms. McCain, but as an Autism mom I fully back this sentiment.— Kelly Tryda (@TrydaTwinMom) April 19, 2019

Nope - please do not mess with The Princess of Arizona here - she is exactly on point, and her “tone” is spot on - these parents are ridiculous.— Aaron Duty (@AmdityDuty) April 19, 2019
I can’t believe I actually found something I agree with this person about. It’s like I’m Trump and agreeing with Cher except I’m a good person and she doesn’t have any talent— SocMediaIsSometimesOk (@socmediaisdumb) April 19, 2019
Her friend McCarthy was mentioned in several of the comments.
@JennyMcCarthy is one of the nitwit anti-vaxxers responsible for the measles outbreaks. For years she used her celebrity status to promote lies about vaccinations.— Trainer Gloria 🇨🇦 (@TrainerGloria) April 19, 2019
McCain was criticized by some who have had bad experiences with vaccinations or whose children have autism, despite the CDC report stating there is no scientific link between the two.
Your ignorance on this topic is showing. Maybe do a little research and then open your mouth. Not one double blind placebo test has been done on vaccines. I watched my son fall apart after his mmr vaccine. He has never been the same. Call me stupid. Fine. We shall see.— Momlife (@mnorthrop14) April 19, 2019
She was also told that because not a parent herself, she’s not allowed to have an opinion on the topic.
I love you so much Meghan but no offense, you don't have kids, so you can't know what it's like to have to go through parenting until you do.— Mary (@LucyRicardo108) April 19, 2019
I really really adore you, but really really, don't comment on parenting until you are one.
From someone who got her children vaccinated.
And others just wanted to criticize her for her views on other topics (abortion, the Mueller report and her father).
Your assertion that abortion is murder is putting women’s lives in danger and is, similarly, abominable.— John W Lloyd (@jwlloyd76) April 19, 2019
No mention of the Mueller report. You disgust me. You should go work for the enquirer you would fit right in. @MeghanMcCain— ex-GOP 🇺🇸 Latina (@exgopLatina) April 19, 2019

For the record, McCain said she found the SNL sketch “hilarious.”
I’m not supposed to be on twitter because of hiatus BUT this sketch is hilarious, and being parodied by @SNL is a huge pop cultural honor. - Signed, your old intern and “the princess of Arizona” 😜🌵 https://t.co/HUtON4Xi3V— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) April 14, 2019
The View is on vacation this week, but the ladies will be back on Monday — probably discussing this very hot topic.
