The Fox News Christmas tree in New York was set ablaze on Wednesday and Meghan McCain was quick to politicize it, drawing backlash from Americans on Twitter.

A 49-year-old man allegedly set the tree on fire and is possibly homeless and could be suffering from a mental illness according to a report by the New York Times. Police do not believe the fire was politically motivated.

But that didn’t stop McCain, who recently left her role as a co-host on “The View” after years of criticism, from trying to tie the incident to liberals in a since-deleted tweet full of errors.

“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,” she complained.

Of course, a Christmas tree being set on fire is nothing compared to the violent storming of the Capitol perpetrated by Trump supporters on January 6th, which actually resulted in bloodshed and the near-overthrow of our democracy.

In response, Twitter users blasted McCain for seemingly equating the fire with the insurrection.

Every time Meghan McCain says something stupid like this, her father’s legacy dies a little more.
