Thanks to being a co-host on The View, and being former presidential candidate John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain has over 747,000 people following her on Twitter.

One would think that based on those particular facts McCain would try to be somewhat responsible when it comes to tweeting out inflammatory statements. Especially, false statements.

One would be wrong.

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.”

Shortly thereafter, her neighbor Kristen Bartlett, the co-head writer on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, tweeted back at McCain, “Meghan, we live in the same building, and I just walked outside. It’s fine.”

Another woman who lives in the same building, Alison Greene, even went outside and took some pictures

Those are some pretty solid receipts that McCain was making statements that were flat out “fake news.”

On Wednesday, McCain was back on Twitter trying to defend herself by blaming the fact that she’s pregnant?

Yep. Somehow, McCain managed to dig the hole she made for herself even deeper, finding herself being compared to the “Central Park Karen” Amy Cooper.

According to Page Six, says they were told by a source, “She isn’t even in the city! She’s in Virginia at a family home because she wanted to be in a place she could keep guns.”

McCain’s personal representative said that her leaving New York so she could have guns handy “is absolutely untrue.”
