‘He is burning in Hell’: Fox News commenters trash John McCain hours after his death

Published

on

Commenters at the Fox News website on Sunday attacked Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) just hours after the war hero’s death.

Although Fox News disabled comments in many of its stories about McCain, readers were allowed to express disdain for the late senator in several others.

One article about former Sen. Jon Kyl’s remembrance of McCain racked up nearly 1,500 comments in the first hour after publication. Multiple commenters said “good riddance” to McCain.

“McCain was a traitor!” LenardMiller205 wrote in the very first comment.

“Not a hero. He’s a TRAITOR. Big difference,” commenter BlackSix wrote.

“I’m sorry, but I can’t celebrate the life of a man who has done so much evil,” Oldster13 opined. “He is burning in Hell right now, and receiving the due payment for his evil deeds.”

“McCain – making America suffer up until the end,” theblazerman complained.

“Thanks for dying McCain! By far the best thing you ever did for America!!!” commenter PromotesFreedom quipped.

Several commenters accused McCain of being a “puppet” for liberal billionaire George Soros.

But others suggested that it was the wrong time to be attacking the senator.

“I love to read all the nice ‘christian’ comments here,” StankSinatra wrote.

During an appearance with the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison in the Oval Office, Donald Trump boasted to reporters he could wipe out Iran that very moment-- and that would give them something to write about.

The president referred to the fact that he has previously been accused of wanting to plunge the country into war before praising himself for his self-restraint.

That led to an extended riff by the president on the damage he could inflict on Iran.

"The easiest thing I could do would be, 'Go ahead, fellas, go do it,'" Trump said of the Pentagon. "And that would be a very bad day for Iran. That's the easiest thing I could do, it's so easy. And for all of those that say, 'Oh, they should do it, it shows weakness,' actually, in my opinion, it shows strength."

Appearing on CNN on Friday morning to discuss an alarming whistleblower report on Donald Trump's actions that the president's administration is withholding from Congress, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) encouraged the acting Director of National Intelligence to hand the report over and ignore the administration.

Speaking with CNN host Jim Sciutto, Swalwell made a direct appeal to acting-DNI head Joseph Maguire.

"This is an opportunity for Republicans and Democrats to unite and say, we don't want this in our democracy," Swalwell explained. "You know, that's why I wrote the Protecting Our Democracy Act, to, you know, have a bipartisan commission look at this."

An intelligence official filed a whistleblower complaint against the president, and speculation has begun to focus the report concerns Trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden in exchange for U.S. aid -- and former Justice Department official Michael Bromwich called for a formal probe.

"Time for a new Special Counsel," Bromwich tweeted.

Bromwich -- inspector general for the Department of Justice from 1994-1999, former assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and associate counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel for Iran-Contra -- was responding to a summation of the allegations against Trump.
