‘Delete your account’: Libertarian group slammed for ‘hideous’ tweet of Meghan McCain

The Libertarian Party of New Hampshire is coming under fire for its decision to post a tweet of Meghan McCain grieving her dead father, John McCain, with the caption “Happy Holidays.”

The tweet, which remains up at the time of this piece’s publication, depicts a grief-stricken McCain sobbing over the flag-draped casket of her father. Sen. McCain passed away August 25, 2018, which made Thursday the 4-year anniversary of his death.

Even fellow Libertarian Justin Amash, who became the party’s first congressional member in 2021 when he officially switched parties, had some harsh words for the group.

“This is a horrible, disgusting tweet. I already know the response will be that McCain advocated wars and military actions that are horrible and disgusting. That doesn’t justify being cruel to his family and loved ones. If you want to bring people to libertarianism, show humanity,” he wrote.

McCain responded by slamming the organization’s decision to use her grief to celebrate her father’s passing.

The use of the photo was largely condemned, even by conservatives who have voiced disagreement with McCain and her father in the past. (** Language warning)
