Something strange is going on at Fox News.
With less than a week away until Americans head to the polls, the major news network has made a big change under the table.
And now Trump supporters are furious with Fox News after they axed this popular host from the network.
One of Fox News’ most popular scheduled shows was their program Outnumbered, which featured a variety of hosts and opinions.
Melissa Francis was a staple to appear on the show – at least until recently.
The network’s viewers have noticed that the Trump-supporting host, Melissa Francis, has not appeared on the show for nearly a month.
This has caused speculations to run wild about whether her six year tenure with Fox News is over.
The Los Angeles Times reported, “Melissa Francis, regularly seen on the popular Fox News midday talk show Outnumbered, has been off the air for two weeks and is probably at the end of her six-year run at the network, according to people familiar with the matter who were not authorized to comment and requested anonymity.
“Francis, 47 has not been seen on the program since Oct. 7. A Fox News representative did not comment on her status, saying only that she is still an employee and its daytime programming is being revamped.”
Melissa also posted on Twitter a picture of herself with a caption thanking all her supporters – seemingly confirming she will be leaving the network.

There’s been an open secret of a rift between Trump-supporting conservatives and Never-Trump RINOs over at Fox News.
With establishment neoconservatives like Paul Ryan sitting on the board, it’s entirely possible the network is trying to remove conservatives like Melissa Francis ahead of the election.
This is just a part of the establishment plan to take back the Republican Party and roll back the clock to the early 2000s for neoconservative politics.
