Meghan McCain Tries To Explain Tweet That Her Neighbourhood ‘Looks Like A War Zone’ After Neighbour Says ‘It’s Fine’

On Tuesday, McCain took to Twitter to comment on the ongoing protests happening outside her apartment in New York City. The demonstrations are in support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement following the senseless killing of George Floyd.

“My neighbourhood in Manhattan is eviscerated and looks like a war zone,” she wrote. “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.”

She added, “It’s fine.”
