Someone lit the giant Christmas tree outside the Fox News building in Midtown Manhattan ablaze last night, and nobody is more upset about it than John McCain’s daughter.
At 7:05 a.m., Meghan McCain took to Twitter to fire off (pun intended!) an angry tweet raging against “lunatics running around New York City setting Fox News Christmas tree on fire.”

The tweet has since been deleted, but not before someone took a screengrab of it and posted it to Twitter, where it’s been making the rounds all morning.
“I don’t want to hear anything about how radical some of you believe republicans [sic] to be when there are lunatics running around New York City setting Fox News Christmas tree on fire,” it reads.
Before McCain deleted the tweet, it received over 130 retweets, 120 quote tweets, and almost 1,300 likes.
Here’s what people are saying about the whole thing…
Okay, who chanted Meghan McCain's name three times in the mirror this morning to get her trending again?

Meghan McCain is trending because someone setting a Christmas tree on fire is worse than attempting to overthrow the government. WOW!

Who ELSE is glad Meghan McCain isn't soiling #TheView with her presence every day? ?

Meghan McCain doesn't want to hear anything about Republican radicalism while the Fox News Christmas tree is on fire…because planning an insurrection and burning a tree are totally the same thing.

Dear Meghan McCain: How about the lunatics running around shooting schoolchildren? Do you support gun control? pic.twitter.com/WU3bayDkru

How did Meghan McCain turn out to be such a dick?

I give thanks daily that Meghan McCain is no longer on #TheView – I bet all her former co-hosts are thankful too.

Meghan McCain is trending…. Did you know her dad is John McCain? Because she never mentions that

Since deleting the tweet, McCain has posted a follow up one attacking one of her many archenemies, former Biden advisor Jon B. Wolfsthal, for making fun of her.
You made fun of me for being horrified by a Christmas tree being burned outside of Fox News.
There’s never any place for abuse and insults but liberal men really really love starting shit with me. Just like you did this morning. So, please… https://t.co/fhi28M10AO

Meghan, if you’re reading, it’s not just liberal men who dislike you. It’s also women, nonbinary people, trans people, LGBTQ people, all your old co-workers (especially Whoopi), reviewers of your crappy new audiobook, 99% of Twitter, and pretty much every decent human being who is opposed to intolerance, toxicity, and bigotry.
“IHO” Meghan McCain trending (for something stupid she tweeted- of course), let’s take a trip down memory lane when Whoopi gathered her on live television. #TheView

That is how anti-American today’s Republican party is. Meghan McCain is supposedly a “Moderate” yet she is trying to compare a try being lit on fire with an organized armed insurrection attacking the U.S. Capitol where police died and elected officials were threatened with death.
Republicans hate America.
If MM and the other idiots of Faux News were real god fearing Christians they wouldn’t even have had a tree up to be burnt. Christmas has nothing to do with Jesus. Almost all of the Xmas traditions and celebrations are pagan in origin. It’s why a Boston colony banned Xmas and it wasn’t recognized as a federal holiday until the mid 1800s. Also, the bible says,
““When the Lord your God cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land, take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ YOU SHALL NOT WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD IN THAT WAY; for every abomination to the Lord which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods. Whatever I command you, BE CAREFUL TO OBSERVE IT; you shall not add to it nor take away from it” (Deuteronomy 12:29-32).”
I don’t have Twitter but I hope somebody points that out to her phony @ss.
don’t think they know anything about anything. they’ll twist religion to their convenience and in turn what should be fear of is now to spite Him. that tree was for them was nothing but a false idol.
“christians” don’t read the bible, they only misquote it. That crazy McCain bitch will say anything to get attention.
False idol or not, I couldn’t care less. I’m an atheist but I know a thing or two about a thing or two when it comes to religion. If they actually read their book of sacred myths they’d probably implode by the sh*t they’d find. I can’t tolerate hypocrites and most Christians are the biggest ones around.
As some denominations are wont to do, they will try to “rationalize” their stance, even though what they say is blatantly against Scripture, and basically say, “Yes, it says that, but… ”
I’ve had several run-ins with this type, and then just added them to the list of those who’ll never see a Heavenly reward.
God is not mocked!
Republicans set America on fire. We could see the blaze from across the ocean.
She said many times on the view she was a conservative Republican…that’s a oxymoron.
Yeah, more moron than oxy which her brain seems to be lacking.
I think you need to actually find out what the actual definition of an oxymoron is, because “conservative” and “Republican” are basically definitions of each other.
I do think, however, that @David’s response was gold.
Meanwhile, police have arrested and identified the arsonist. He’s a 49 year old homeless man with no political affiliation.
Is he the real arsonist or just the easiest target they could find.
A waste of time to even cover anything this nonentity says or does.
I didn’t like her dad, he was another entitled rich republican who would willingly take the food from the mouths of babes but he was a veteran, he did fight for democracy not the spoiled fruit of his loins has turned into the very vision of a Nazi that her dad fought, she’s so bright white that it hurts to look at her, in this case judge the book by it’s cover. She’s racist, elitist scum with money. OH by the way Missy as others said here…no one likes your attitude or your fat blonde ass except for the party of republican incels and the karens who lick them.
Meghan is so off the charts cray that she named her daughter as an attempt to troll. She named her daughter “Liberty” hoping it would piss off the libs.
Meanwhile her father, an actual Republican named his daughter Meghan.
Isn’t there something about a burning bush in the Bible?
