Huntington, West Virginia – Marshall University suspended a professor Friday morning after she said she hopes Trump supporters die of Covid during a virtual class this week.
Jennifer Mosher, a biology professor, was teaching a virtual class online this week when she expressed her anger over Trump’s rallies.
Mosher said she hopes Trump supporters die of Covid before the general election.
“I’ve become the type of person where I hope they all get it and die. I’m sorry, but that’s so frustrating – just – I don’t know what else to do. You can’t argue with them, you can’t talk sense with them, um, I said to somebody yesterday I hope they all die before the election,” said Mosher in a video posted to Twitter.
