The hosts of “Fox & Friends” called the man taken into custody as a “psycho.”
“‘It’s beginning to look a lot like arson,” said Steve Doocy, adding later in the segment that the incident highlighted a much larger issue of “safety” in New York City.
“It goes to the much larger issue of safety. We’ve been talking for a very long time, this city is going south when it comes to safety. We don’t feel safe when we come to work in the morning and we don’t feel safe when we go home at night.”
After saying that the arsonist was “maybe homeless” Ainsley Earhardt said of the tree: “I hope we build it back bigger and better.”
And while committing crimes such as arson is never acceptable, people on Twitter didn’t hold back with their responses, and it would be a shame not to share some of the tweets that sparked a chuckle.
