Meghan McCain slams Bill O’Reilly’s ‘gross and ghoulish’ comment on Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Meghan McCain took serious issue with comments Bill O’Reilly made on Friday that suggested that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death was imminent.

Ousted Fox News personality O’Reilly took to Twitter following the news that Ginsburg had two cancerous growths removed from her lung Friday and will remain hospitalized for several days following the surgery.

“Justice Ginsburg is very ill,” he tweeted. “Another Justice appointment inevitable and soon. Bad news for the left.”

Conservatives have a 5-4 majority on the court, with Ginsburg leading the court’s liberal group, and future vacancies during President Donald Trump’s watch could increase that margin. 

It didn’t take long for McCain, who also used to work at Fox News, to catch wind of O’Reilly’s tweet, and she had some choice words for him.

″There’s really nothing more gross and ghoulish than people in the media pontificating on a public persons health and the hypothetical political ramifications of their death,” she responded on Twitter just hours later. “Join me in praying for RBG to have a speedy and healthy recovery – we are Christians, aren’t we Bill?”

McCain has personal experience with a family member dealing with health issues in the public eye. McCain’s father, Sen. John McCain, died in August following a battle with a deadly brain cancer.
