Though Americans are being urged to practice social distancing and self-isolation amidst the growing coronavirus outbreak, many have chosen to ignore the advice, and Meghan McCain is not happy about it.

Earlier in March, The View co-host expressed her frustration at reports of millennials ignoring calls for social distancing and going out to bars and restaurants, saying she was “furious.”
