As Covid-19, the new strain of coronavirus, continues to spread across the United States and the world, President Donald Trump has accused the media of sensationalizing the highly contagious virus in an effort to undermine his presidency.
Fox Business host Trish Regan echoed Trump's claims in a disturbingly devoted defense of the President.
In a rather overacted performance, Regan told her viewers that coronavirus was another attempt to impeach the President.
Democrats "don't care who they hurt," she said in defense of the man who calls women dogs, insults gold star families, destroys the careers of exemplary ambassadors, and retaliates against career officials who comply with congressional subpoenas.
Watch Regan's melodrama unfold below.

Regan falsely claimed that Trump was being blamed for the coronavirus, when he's really facing criticism for his administration's response to it—a response that includes a bungled rollout of test kits and the appointment of Vice President Mike Pence to lead the response.
"The chorus of hate being leveled at the President 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 they care very little for any of the destruction they are leaving in their wake."
Regan continued in the performative devotion, saying:
"Don't kid yourself. [Democrats] told us how much they crave a recession as a way to get rid of Donald Trump! Of course, these are people's jobs that the Left does not mind seeing them lose. These are people's 401k's that are being decimated, and that's okay with them? That's okay with the left? Yeah. In some ways they almost seem to be cheering it on."
People weren't impressed that Regan's performative loyalty to the President trumped accurate information about a legitimate public health concern.
