Fox News puts host on hiatus after she said coronavirus is being used to ‘impeach’ Trump all over again

Trish Regan used her Fox Business show to claim that Democrats and the media are overhyping the threat of coronavirus in an attempt to take down Trump’s presidency.

Trish Regan’s Fox Business show will be going on hiatus in the wake of an on-air rant where she said Democrats and the “liberal media” are trying to “destroy the president” by means of the coronavirus. She blamed stock market declines on Donald Trump’s opponents, calling it “another attempt to impeach the president” — all while the headline “Coronavirus Impeachment Scam” was emblazoned on a graphic next to her.

“We’ve reached a tipping point,” she said during her segment that was broadcast last Monday. “The chorus of hate is nearing a crescendo as Democrats blame him, and only him, for a virus that originated halfway around the world. This is yet another attempt to impeach the president, and sadly it seems that they care very little for any of the destruction they are leaving in their wake.”

According to a statement from Fox, Regan’s show, along with a show hosted by Lisa Kennedy Montgomery, will be on hiatus to make way for more programming covering developments surrounding the coronavirus outbreak.

“Fox Business’s prime-time programs Trish Regan Primetime and Kennedy will both be on hiatus until further notice,” Fox said a statement. “Due to the demands of the evolving pandemic crisis coverage, we are deploying all resources from both shows for staffing needs during critical market hours. Fox Business will run long form programming in prime time for the foreseeable future.”
