Following Senator John McCain's death on Saturday, August 25, news outlets across the nation put out memorial segments honoring the life of one of America's most towering political figures. This included Fox News, which is famously the favorite network of Donald Trump and his supporters due to its consistently and unfailingly favorable coverage of his Presidency.

Many conservatives, a great deal of whom one could assume to be Trump supporters, began leaving hateful comments on John McCain's Fox News memorial segment. Before long, the problem became so extreme, Fox was forced to disable the comment section.

It's no secret that President Trump and Senator McCain weren't very fond of each other, with Trump actively questioning McCain's status as a war hero during his campaign, and McCain making it clear before his death he did not want the President at his funeral. It seems the President's supporters took notice of this animosity and began decrying McCain as a "traitor" and "evil."

Before the comments were disabled, one video collected nearly 3,500 comments. On one, the first, from LenardMiller205, read:

McCain was a traitor!

Others, like BlackSix expressed similar sentiments:

Not a hero. He's a TRAITOR. Big difference.

Oldster13 commented:

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

Commenter PromotesFreedom sounded off:

Thanks for dying McCain! By far the best thing you ever did for America!!!

Many accused McCain of being controlled by liberal billionaire George Soros.

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
