Meghan McCain blasted both New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday over their failed leadership during the violent protests and looting that have been taking place in the state.
McCain’s remarks came just as Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo threw Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s under the bus over his handling of the riots that has occurred in his city, calling it a “disgrace” and saying he has the power to “displace” the mayor by bringing in the National Guard.
McCain thinks both de Blasio and Cuomo are responsible for the situation in New York and cited her Manhatten neighborhood as an example of what an “utter disgrace” both leaders are.
“My neighborhood in Manhattan is eviscerated and looks like a war zone. DeBlasio and Cuomo are an utter disgrace. This is not America,” McCain tweeted.
“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.

McCain went on to retweet reactions from Fox News host Martha MacCallum and Congressman Dan Crenshaw regarding the situation in New York.
Here are their tweets:
This must stop. Gov Cuomo now blaming Deblasio and NYPD…after GOV says he has 13,000 National Guard troops at the ready, but won’t deploy them! https://t.co/SL72QojTH7

NYC is in ruins and you do nothing. NYPD has been shot at and run over with vehicles. They’re being overrun by a mob that you have no interest in stopping.
Call in the national guard, now. https://t.co/jWVm4r6oOT
