KAYLEIGH MCENANY (FOX CONTRIBUTOR): No, Joe Biden, Facebook is not the reason for low vaccination rate. I can tell you what the reason is. Look in the mirror. It's Dr. Fauci who you've empowered, who told us masks don't work and then said, oh, wait, they do. It's Dr. Fauci who told us, hey, coronavirus could not have originated in a lab when, in fact, it did. It is you, Joe Biden, when you called Gov. Abbott a Neanderthal for lifting the mask mandate, predicted dire straits when in fact Texas did not see an influx of COVID. People are not trusting what's coming out of the government, and it's sad because I'm a pro-vaccine believer, I've had my vaccine, everyone should get it. Trump, by the way, is the reason for that vaccine. But he should look in the mirror. It's not social media, it is Joe Biden and Dr. Fauci who they've appointed as the purveyor of all things COVID and true.

RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY (CO-hOST): Yeah it's also the suppression of early treatments. I mean we're seeing this huge -- they did that last summer, I don't know how many, 100,000 lives might have been saved if they had let the public and doctors talk about hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin and prescribe it without being called by a pharmacist as if they are doing something illegal. But they're still suppressing that information. We're hearing about the Delta Variant coming up and, again, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine and no talk about early treatments as a possibility for people. And so there's just so much anti-science stuff out there, I agree with you, Kayleigh. This is about the Biden administration, this is about Dr. Fauci, and this is about the suppression of information.

MCENANY: You make a great point Rachel.
