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.

It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
