With new strains of COVID-19 beginning to spread as vaccine supplies still lag behind, health officials have revealed data that shows wearing multiple masks -- up to three -- can increase protection efficiency up to 90 percent.
That important news apparently aggravated Meaghan McCain, co-host of ABC's 'The View," who complained on Twitter that scientists -- who are still trying to get their arms around the coronavirus pandemic -- are "moving the goalposts."
According to the daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ): "People feel hopeless because the goal posts continue to get moved.... (Also I'm not wearing 3 masks)."
Critics, more worried about public health than how masks look, were quick to call out the conservative commentator with one chastising her for being "childish."
