The coronavirus crisis has shaken “The View” co-host Meghan McCain’s faith in the nation’s leadership.
McCain last month described her “existential awakening” to just how badly served many Americans were by “horrible” elected officials, and Friday she explained that she doesn’t trust that President Donald Trump and many Republican governors value public health in deciding to reopen the economy.

I can’t leave my house without wearing a mask. It’s highly contagious, nothing like the flu. We can’t travel anywhere. I can’t go anywhere, and all I can do is go for a walk privately once in awhile.
