Well, this is weird and embarrassing…
Alleged LGBTQ ally Meghan McCain has admitted that she was lying when she claimed her neighborhood in Manhattan had been turned into a “war zone” after peaceful Black Lives Matter protestors marched through it earlier this week.
On Tuesday, McCain tweeted: “My neighborhood in Manhattan is eviscerated and looks like a war zone. DeBlasio and Cuomo are an utter disgrace. This is not America. Our leaders have abandoned us and continue to let great American cities burn to the ground and be destroyed. I never could have fathomed this.”

But neighbors, as well as many fellow New Yorkers, quickly piped in to say that actually, no, the neighborhood is not a “war zone,” the protests were peaceful, and everything is just fine.
SNL writer Kristen Bartlett, who lives in the same building as McCain, tweeted: “Meghan, we live in the same building, and I just walked outside. It’s fine.”

After being called out for spreading misinformation/being a drama queen, McCain admitted that, OK, OK, the neighborhood wasn’t a “war zone.” In fact, she wasn’t even there to know. She’s been hiding out in Virginia, gestating a child, which has apparently hindered her ability to tell the truth. Or something.
In a string of tweets, McCain explains:
“1. I am six months pregnant – a gossip organization is about to run a story of where me and my family are currently. I sent a tweet yesterday based on the news I saw happening in midtown we all have been watching all over different media platforms…”

“2. I support the peaceful protests, their movement but am absolutely heartbroken about the destruction in the city I have loved since I moved to when I was 18. It is important to have your voice heard and I hope everyone stays safe and healthy.”

Here’s hoping that, in the future, McCain thinks twice before weighing in on issues she knows absolutely nothing about. Somehow we don’t think that’s gonna happen.

Meghan McCain is the worst type of “Karen”.
She is promoting the worst type of sexism as a defense against her politicized lies she used to attack the Democratic Mayor and ?Governor of New York.
For decades the attack women have had to endure is that they shouldn’t be in positions of authority because their periods or pregnancy made them unstable etc. And here is Meghan, who made a very calculated, cynical lie, but when called out instead of just admitting it, tried to claim it was about those Nutty WOMEN hormones and she can’t be blamed.
This is about Meghan and her right wing husband purposely lying to promote their right wing agenda. Shame on her for attacking all women to defend herself.
another “media person” that needs to be ignored. silence will make her even more irrelevant.
So a Cow with a Calf in the oven has special rights to lie. Go to hell bitch – yep a dog too.
This woman is too much, not only did she lie about the neighborhood being destroyed-hell she wasn’t even in the same state. Please stop hiring this person. She’s a proven liar just like the one in the White House.
Some people just shouldn’t breed
People say “If you get caught in a lie, instead of making excuses, own up to it”.
How about ‘Don’t f*cking lie to begin with, then you won’t need to make excuses or own up to it’.
I love this quote from Chernobyl: ‘Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth, sooner or later that debt is paid’. [Note: Trump’s debit of lies is so huge, it has it’s own gravity].
Don the Con is a walking Chernobyl.
Has an Ego so big, that light bends around it (and how others get fooled)
Her unborn child is learning in the womb what “calumny” is. Are Mukowski & Romney the only Republicans with integrity?
In case she hasn’t mentioned it in the last five seconds, she’s John McCain’s daughter and she wants to speak to the manager!!
Entitled lying Karen.
SOMEONE HAD SEX WITH HER???? WOW.
Most pregnant women remember where they live, but Meghan is special.
Lol I’m in Manhattan. 99% of the city is fine.
Well, save for the unseen Covid-19 virus, which is in every other major city too, but….
“McCain thinks twice”…chance would be a fine thing. Baby steps, queerty, She can start with thinking ONCE. Dumb douchenozzle.
I think that it’s just impossible for a Republican to tell the truth about anything.
She’s a life support mechanism for a vagina and bad hair extensions.
I think she saw making this claim as an attention grab. It’s jumping on the bandwagon, and it’s lazy & pathetic.
So it’s ok to lie if your pregnant? NO. She is white privilege over and over. It’s not ok to lie. She is living off her parents wealth. I posted yesterday about the perks of congress and about their priorities. Obviously, this is just another example of how the elite live a different existence than Main Street USA. Just because you see something about somewhere one of your unknown number of houses is located doesn’t make it true. That is why the media has a bad reputation, because of all the made up crap they think might be true but really isn’t. She complains about Trump, but honestly she’s just as much a liar as he is. She’s no LGBTQ ally, at least not one that I respect. She was just called out on her lie.

There’s probably no greater example of rich, white privilege than Meghan McCain. An unintelligent, incurious moron without an original thought in her head who would be nothing if not for the fact that she’s the daughter of John McCain. A fact she reminds us of whenever she has the chance.
My question is “Why do Republicans lie so much”.
Why is their manipulative politics so interwoven with dishonesty.
It just seems to be ubiquitous character trait in their tribe to be dishonest without concern as a first instinct, unless they got caught and called out.
LIAR. she can not blame her being 6 months pregnant. A lie is told by a liar. And it sure looks like republicans have a corner on telling lies. We know that evangelicals have sold out for 30 pieces of silver . They have stopped living but Bible standards and doing as they want, A lie is still told by republications liars.
Oh for the day when the truth be told. We need to hold them to a high standard. We should all be honest. Its not that hard to do. But this group of people are compulsive liars, I guess if orange top can lie, so can they.
Can’t she be sterilised so she doesn’t spawn more moronic assholes. It’s not inhumane. It’s more a service to the community
