“My Liberty Bell,” the author captioned her post. However, two of her followers took to the comments section to question why her child was seated on top of her instead of her car seat.
“Where is the car seat?” one user asked. A second added to that statement and said, “Searching for it also,” while adding a laughing emoji.
Luckily, some fans quickly weighed in and fired back at the haters, with one person writing, "She's in the parking lot. Why does everyone have to be a critic? Be happy for her. She has a beautiful daughter. She is in PARK."
Other loyal fans echoed the same sentiments, with a fourth follower stating, "Oh stop it. She is posing for a pic. Don't be the IG police."
Another individual added, "I'm sure that the car seat is in the second row of seats, where it belongs!!" One other emphasized that McCain was not behind the wheel, and she and her child were merely sitting.

One follower cautioned the haters and said, "Be careful starting things. You can see it in the back seat, rear-facing, as it should be in a different picture. People need to settle down and stop jumping to attack people on social media."
Another stated McCain was probably sitting in the front seat for a moment to capture the image. "OMG, people just find something good and cute with the picture and mind your own business," the user added.

A month after she had Liberty, the conservative columnist shared motherhood helped her cope with the loss of her father, Senator John McCain.
