Hey, remember when Meghan McCain threatened to quit Twitter last summer? It’s a shame she didn’t follow through with that promise because she just tweeted something really, really stupid.

Yesterday, John McCain’s daughter shared a Hollywood Reporter article about how the Academy Awards are only requiring attendees provide a negative COVID-19 test on the day of the event, unlike the SAG Awards and Critics Choice Awards, which will require proof of vaccination.

“This is hilarious,” McCain tweeted. “Now can 2 year olds not be forced to wear a mask on a plane, psychopaths?”
This is hilarious.
Now can 2 year olds not be forced to wear a mask on a plane, psychopaths? https://t.co/GJSFyvZ3oB

OK first, comparing the COVID-19 testing requirements of the Academy Awards to airline policies put in place by Federal Aviation Administration is a false equivalency. So is comparing wearing masks to PCR and negative rapid antigen tests.

Second, why is Meghan so angry about this? That’s what most people who responded to her tweet want to know.
Here’s what they’re saying…
Most 2 year olds don’t have a problem with this, I don’t know why you do.

How many two year olds are up for an Oscar?
Everyone there is vaccinated.
Do you even try to think before you tweet?

Good grief. Give it a rest Meg

Please STOP calling people who may be overly cautious: ‘psychopaths’! It’s extraordinarily disrespectful and (I’m sure) deeply insulting to these individuals.Why be so unkind?

We’ll say a prayer for you Meaghan. You’re obviously suffering.

Who would take a 2 year old on a plane in a pandemic?

Are you gonna call everyone psychopaths or just yourself?

Maybe next you can discuss the psychological damage active shooter drills are doing to our children. (But I know you won’t.)

Using lower case letters doesn’t make it better if calling someone a psychopath. A person wanting to protect their health and/or the health of others IS NOT a psychopath. A person shooting up a school, store, etc is a psychopath. A person attacking the Capital is a psychopath.

In her most recent op-ed for the Daily Mail, McCain compared requiring children to wear masks to child abuse.
“I know what impact being out in public and trying to communicate with people masked has had on my life,” McCain wrote. “I can’t even imagine what impact studies will show it has and continues to have developmentally on children, who are growing into themselves emotionally, mentally and physically.”
Dude, it’s piece of fabric. Calm down.

I love being lectured about child abuse from somebody who chose her daughters name solely to “Troll the libs”.
you can tell Meghan is melting down the longer she is away from any kind of attention.
McCain has gone totally right wing nuts. I guess that’s what happens when you lean to far that way.
It continues to amaze me how, this far into Covid, some people STILL aren’t willing to do even the absolute BARE MINIMUM that could help try to get this under control. Meanwhile, I have barely left the house for 23 months and I’m really starting to lose my mind…
They are driven by malevolent selfishness.
They don’t care about others, except maybe those in their clan.
They value themselves, their whims, their convenience at the expense of another person’s good health and will do so without any regard to science.
had this been something deadlier like an ebola-type virus that has symptoms of both internal and external bleeding, would these same deniers, Repubs, and anti-vaxxers change their minds and clamor for masking and the vaccine?
Fortunately when that type of viral threat was assessed, (ebola), Trump wasn’t President, and we didn’t have to find out what these deniers and anti-vaxxers mindset would have been or what they would have done. Thank You Mr. President Obama.
This article proves that Queerty doesn’t just champion gay rights, as it is just another far left website.
Why do I say this: Because Meghan McCain has been for gay rights for as long as she’s been in the public eye. She and her mother, Cindy McCain – who was appointed to a diplomatic post by none other than Joe Biden himself – did a public service announcement on Arizona TV supporting gay marriage years ago.
But, for Queerty, that’s not enough. She must also hold far left views on everything in order to escape Queerty’s condemnation and contempt.
Therefore, Queerty doesn’t have as its objective gay rights. It’s true objective is to peddle fake liberal news and push the leftist agenda.
Except you’re a liar. Meghan McCain’s husband runs a virulently anti-Queer website, and she often parrots it’s stories. I especially liked how the same day McCain was interviewing drag queens on The View, her husband’s site just HAPPENED to come out with a bunch of anti-LGBTQ articles. Hmmmm, I wonder how he knew about the timing?
Additionally McCain claims to be for LGBT rights, but supports rabidly homophobic politicians.
But it’s cute you trolls keep on trying.
Just another right wing troll probably more of SamB screen names. Your comment is funniest if not the stupidest one made today.
Barry – I am truly puzzled about what ‘Fake Liberal News’ stories you are speaking of. I am not aware of any. Not only does the Liberal news (as you wish to call it) not take up the mantel of the Right, which CREATES stories out of thin air, but the Left retracts and apologizes for those few instances that they’ve found they were fed some false facts.
And everything you refer to as FAR Left, is not. It is down the middle, normal views and goals for all citizens. – Unless you are listening to the Far Right which has totally made up a full list of lies that it peddles as the Left’s agenda. Sorry, Sparky. Not only do they NOT create the Left’s platform, they did not even create a GOP Platform for themselves in the last Presidential election.
maybe you should start a fox spinoff of your own and stay out of places where you dont fit in.
What do you mean, “not enough”? A person doesn’t get some sort of a free pass for supporting marriage. This woman is wrong about science. She’s a fool. There’s no coupon for stupidity. Your whole premise is ridiculous.
BarryM you might be onto something! I myself don’t understand why homosexuals MUST ALWAYS be so dam liberal!
My problem (and I speak on behalf of many others as well) is mostly with Liberalism, not gays in general. If gays and other minorities would quit buying into the victim mentality sold to them by media/left wing politicians, the Democratic Party would’ve had no crutch to stand on this most recent election. (I’m still not convinced there was no cheating btw!)
the Japanese and CHinese have worn masks for decades. Not all of them but alot . If you have been to either place you know I am telling the truth. It is nothing it is worn for health reasons and people without masks give a flying f*ck
My state dropped the mask mandate today and I’ll continue to wear mine because I don’t know which person near me is an idiot who hasn’t gotten the jab.
I thought the Chinese wear masks to enable them sneak up on cats and dogs they plan to have for dinner?
All kidding aside, there’s no need to keep forcing masks when most Americans oppose them at this point. If you catch a case of Kung Flu, it’s far less painful than a*al intercourse, which most on here are familiar with.
Meaghan McDouble in size is at it again by using the pot/kettle theory! That poor child of hers is going to have a troubled childhood!
btw, has meaghan mentioned she’s “john mccain’s daughter” in the last 10 minutes?
I,m shocked that she has gone this deep, what a crack whore, and BS on her being friend of LGBT LOL I forgot our own letter i,m old school gay LOLOL love to all,
Oh, the lost girl. She’s competing with Marjorie Taylor Green & lives with a Joe Rogan wannabe. She’s once again, a nobody. As Laura Ingraham says, “Just shut up & clean your 2 baby’s dribble. Liberty??? Oh the resentment will be spectacular.
Every time she looks at herself naked in the mirror she goes on a rant……im beginning to see a pattern here…
Shut up, Meg.
Even tho her opinion is a bit unrelated to the awards event, she asks a fair question. I’ve heard of entire planes being unboarded over 2 year olds “not complying” with the face diaper mandates. And “psychopath” is very fitting for the flight attendants who kick 2 year olds off a flight primarily to flaunt their egos and exercise political beliefs.
On another note, I’m very happy to see how many likes Miss McCain’s tweet has, compared to the critics below her post!
It’s a good reminder that those who still support the mask/vaccine mandates (most entirely liberals) are just a highly vocal minority.
These are some of the best vaccines ever developed. They do not contain GPS monitors and they do not cause autism. You’re an idiot.
Fname Optional Lname
Saying you support gay rights means absolutely nothing when you’re married to someone who attacks the community! She thinks it’s the correct thing to say but let’s be honest, any gay “friends” she might have are mere accessories to her image — in her mind. She looks down on anyone different and her words are meaningless. She wants the world to believe she supports LGBTQ rights and then goes home every night to someone who works against them. Not falling for it.
Perhaps she is so upset about a 2 year-old wearing a mask because that is the age at which her emotional maturation ceased.
