Soooo you may or may have not missed the outrage on the left over a histrionic commentary that Trish Regan made at the beginning of her show on Fox Business a few weeks back. It was lit:

Yeah they flipped out. I guess Fox Business wasn’t really about it either because they soon put her on suspension, and then just straight out fired her today:
The Fox Business Network announced on Friday that it had parted ways with Trish Regan, the conservative news host who ignited controversy earlier this month when she dismissed the coronavirus pandemic as a conspiracy to throw President Trump out of office.
“We thank her for her contributions to the network over the years and wish her continued success in her future endeavors,” the network said in a statement to CNN Business. “We will continue our reduced live primetime schedule for the foreseeable future in an effort to allocate staff resources to continuous breaking news coverage on the Coronavirus crisis.”
What’s weird is that she really didn’t say anything different from what Sean Hannity said, or Laura Ingraham said previously. I really think what did her in was that HUGE graphic that calls coronavirus a “scam.” Kinda hard to ignore that. And just like that, she’s gone. Poof.
