Meghan McCain became a trending topic on Twitter after she posted and then deleted a tweet regarding her reaction to the Fox News Christmas tree fire.

On Wednesday, McCain shared a post to her Twitter account in which she used politics to deliver her message.

“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,” the now-deleted tweet read.

Shortly after, McCain’s name began trending on Twitter with people mocking her decision to use politics while discussing a Christmas tree burning.

“Remind Meghan McCain that when you are okay with insurrections such as January 6th, you can never again condemn ‘radical behavior.’ That makes you a hypocrite,” one person wrote.

Another person suggested McCain may have shared her opinion without learning more information about the incident.

“Meghan McCain always SPEAKS before she thinks!! She sees a video of #FoxNewsXmasTree on fire & makes unfounded accusations! The fire is under investigation & it could be an electrical issue for all we know. #MeghanMcCain should NEVER have a TV Show or microphone again!” the individual wrote.

The New York Police Department arrested suspect Craig Tamanaha, 49, on Wednesday morning and charged him arson, criminal mischief, and reckless endangerment in the Fox News Christmas tree fire.

An NYPD spokesperson told The Washington Post that Fox News security noticed Tamanaha climbing the tree outside of the office building.

“Upon arrival, officers observed the male running from the location, and he was taken into custody without further incident,” the spokesperson said.

“The fire within the tree was extinguished without further injury or incident by responding FDNY personnel.” Officials have not shared a possible motive in the case.
