Liberal college professor suspended after saying she 'wished Trump supporters get COVID and die' during Zoom lesson
A LIBERAL college professor has been suspended after she was caught on video saying she wished Trump supporters would get coronavirus and die.
Jennifer Mosher, an assistant biology professor at Marshall University in West Virginia, made the remarks during a Zoom class with students on Wednesday, according to WOWK-TV.
Mosher was seemingly frustrated with the indoor rally President Donald Trump held in Nevada on Saturday.
“Nobody wore a mask” the professor said, not explicitly saying Trump or his supporters, but spoke of an indoor rally.
“I’ve become the type of person where I hope they all get it and die. I’m sorry, but that – I am so frustrated and, just, I don’t know what else to do.
“You can’t argue with them, you can’t talk sense into them. I said to somebody yesterday I hope they all die before the election.”
She continued: “That’s the only saving hope I have right now. Definitely bootlickers.”
Mosher soon cuts herself off, saying she “really should not be talking politics in here.”
Mosher’s comments were recorded and posted to Twitter by one of her students, WOWK reported.
On Friday, Marshall University said they were made “aware of an overtly political statement made by a faculty member in a recent virtual classroom session and widely circulated on social media.
“The University does not support or condone the use of any of its educational platforms to belittle people or wish harm on those who hold differing political views.”
The school said Mosher “was removed from the classroom yesterday and is on administrative leave, pending an investigation.”
On Sunday, Trump held a campaign rally despite Democratic Governor Steve Sisolak asking him not to.
Inside a warehouse, Trump told his supporters the US was “making the last turn” in battling coronavirus.
Few people in the crowd wore masks – except those standing behind Trump who would most likely end up in photos and on television were mandated to wear masks.
Many people, including campaign staffers and Secret Service agents, contracted the virus in June after Trump held a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Herman Cain, a former Republican presidential candidate and former CEO of a major pizza company, died this summer due to virus-related complications at the age of 74.
He was hospitalized less than two weeks after attending the rally in Oklahoma, which fire officials said just under 6,200 people attended.
