The host of “Trish Regan Primetime” told viewers this week that concerns about the coronavirus were “yet another attempt to impeach the president.”
The Fox Business anchor Trish Regan, whose on-air dismissal of the coronavirus as “another attempt to impeach the president” left her cable network facing a firestorm of criticism this week, has been removed from her prime-time slot for the foreseeable future, the network said on Friday.
Ms. Regan’s 8 p.m. program, “Trish Regan Primetime,” is “on hiatus until further notice,” Fox Business said in a statement. The network declined to say if Ms. Regan would continue to appear on its other programs, saying that its coverage plans for the coronavirus crisis remained in flux.
Fox Business attributed the move to “the demands of the evolving pandemic crisis coverage,” saying it was shifting resources toward daytime coverage of the pandemic and global markets. Both “Trish Regan Primetime” and its follow-up at 9, “Kennedy,” will be replaced by general-interest programs.

And, of course, there’s the science buffs’ retorts:
There is no pandemic crisis. I think this is going to be the nail in the coffin of liberalism in this country. We’ve already been getting commie cough since November. This is all a bunch of bullshit designed by the libs and prob the Chinese communists to cause chaos . 5,000 dead since November? Wtf that’s nothing in a world of 7.5 billion. I swear to god me and m family had this back in January up here in New Hampshire. I lost 20lbs it sucked but The media wasn’t going around freaking everyone out about it. Now it fits the movie script so they go with it and are finding it all over because it’s been here and they know it. This started coming about after the impeachment. Total bullshit to hurt the country and the president.
