Meghan McCain scorched for take on Fox News Christmas tree fire

Meghan McCain might be foolish, but she’s in good company on social media. The former panelist of ABC’s “The View” and daughter of the late senator and POW, John McCain, took to Twitter on Wednesday to comment in a now-deleted tweet on the intentional burning of the Christmas tree outside the Fox News headquarters in midtown Manhattan.

“I don’t want to hear anything about how radical some of you believe republicans to be when there are lunatics running around New York City setting Fox News Christmas tree on fire,” McCain tweeted.

Of course and as always, this set loose the dogs of Twitter, who were quick to weigh the alleged arson against the Jan 6. protest at the Capitol building, which is the one and only riot of the last two years that the Left in Congress and their sycophantic media can remember or have permission to talk about.

McCain has since deleted her tweet, but it apparently drove every keyboard warrior to the brink of madness and exhausted whatever respective bandwidth their mommies can afford to provide them.

Always eager to employ the tried-and-true rhetorical tactic of what-about-ism, every blue check from Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine made sure to remind McCain of the Jan. 6 “insurrection,” all the while not realizing that two things can be true at the same time, nor being aware of their own conflations.

“You can always count on this nepotistic a–hat to roll out the dumbest possible take on literally anything,” wrote one user.

“Insurrectionists wanting to hang lawmakers & destroy the Capitol vs vandal setting fire to the Fox News Christmas tree,” wrote another, who it seems is a fan of NBC’s “The Office.”

Subsequent to deleting her initial tweet, McCain went on to write a column on the rising crime that is plaguing Democrat-run cities across the U.S.

Violence isn’t violence, but speech is violence.

Pay no attention to anything you could have possibly seen, read, or heard reported about rising crime rates, violence, theft, car-jackings and lootings in many major American cities, everything is fine.

In fact, it’s so fine that in some parts of America it’s not a felony to steal up to $1,000 in merchandise because, hey, stealing products and goods has no bottom-line impact on companies, does it?

Even the New York Times headline said “Fox News Christmas Tree Catches Fire in Manhattan”, like it somehow spontaneously combusted.

It reminds me of the ‘mostly peaceful’ protesting headlines and chyrons on cable news while entire buildings were set in flames behind broadcasters last summer.

And I still don’t understand why are so many of the media and the left are so unwilling to recognize violence when it is blatantly right in front of them, especially in Democrat cities?


“The Democrats can gaslight us over rising crime all they like but I really don’t think people want to live in a city where even the Christmas Trees need bodyguards,” McCain wrote in the column published by the Daily Mail.
