Many areas of the country, including some neighborhoods in New York City have taken a beating as a result of the many protests following the death of George Floyd.
One of those areas that co-host of The View Meghan McCain would like the public to think is out of control with riots is where she lives in Manhattan.
The 35-year-old daughter of former presidential candidate John McCain wrote about how bad things are where she lives to her over 740,000 Twitter followers, “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.”

Wow. That sounds really bad. Maybe Meghan should go join Sharon Stone in her homemade panic room.
A couple of hours later, someone who lives in the same building as McCain, Kristen Bartlett, who is the co-head writer on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and a former writer for Saturday Night Live, tweeted back at McCain, “Meghan, we live in the same building, and I just walked outside. It’s fine.”
Meghan, we live in the same building, and I just walked outside. It’s fine. https://t.co/ZvwNrjL6P7— Kristen Bartlett (@kristencheeks) June 2, 2020
Bartlett’s response to McCain currently sits at over 857,000 likes and almost 162,000 retweets, so one might say it spoke to people. And the people, as they often do on social media, they spoke back.
Meghan, I also live in the same building and went for a walk both yesterday and this morning and it's fine.— Alison Greene (@GrassrootsSpeak) June 2, 2020
Btw, @MeghanMcCain I heard you left New York months ago, I thought you abandoned us....are you back?
I think she did. Folks in the bldg who would know say she hasn't been here for months. So I was surprised she had such a clear view of our 'eviscerated' neighborhood all the way from Arizona
Btw, I went for a walk right before curfew. I'm not sure Meghan knows what a war zone is pic.twitter.com/7awSrn06rm

Figures @MeghanMcCain would continue to distort facts and embellish truths as she sits on her big, fat, white privilege in her ivory tower.— Lynn Esparo (@Lynnsy2) June 2, 2020
Meghan would like to speak to manhattan’s manager— Dan Stevens (@thisdanstevens) June 3, 2020

meghan had to wait 29 minutes for her pf chang’s order despite telling grubhub twice who her father is, so it’s obviously not fine, kristen— prays w/faint damns (@Cy_Lanced) June 2, 2020
I don’t think this looks like a war zone?— Alison Greene (@GrassrootsSpeak) June 2, 2020
I stayed within a 4 block radius and no shops were damaged or even boarded up.
There are other places that have been damaged but to describe this as a neighborhood eviscerated feels like its deceptively trying to score political points. pic.twitter.com/wadNNAeFq4
This is what a war zone look like pic.twitter.com/qQLui4SjdE— Jonathan Webers (@JWeber988) June 3, 2020
Eh, pretty much the same thing. At least in Meghan McCain’s mind.
