Fox News has decided to increase the average IQ on their Outnumbered program by taking Mensa-candidate Andrea Tantaros off the air. The lovely PhD candidate is no stranger to the pages of RedState. We’ve noted that she is not only an idiot, but she’s a dishonest idiot in the bargain.
Andrea Tantaros won’t be on Fox News Channel for the time being.
TVNewser got a tip earlier today regarding Tantaros. When we reached out to FNC, they sent us this statement: “Issues have arisen regarding Andrea’s contract, and Fox News Channel has determined it best that she take some time off. She is still under contract with the network.”
Tantaros was last on Outnumbered on Monday. She got a shout-out Monday evening on The Five for her new book, Tied Up in Knots: How Getting What We Wanted Made Women Miserable.
Tantaros was scheduled to call in to Bill Cunningham‘s radio show yesterday, but canceled a few hours before.
Naturally, she does what any woman does in today’s workforce. She blamed men.
While not cited by FNC as a reason for her extended vacation, Tantaros recently claimed during a taping of Outnumbered that certain GOP Establishment-types were coming down hard on her for supporting Donald Trump; “They have been doing this. Specifically, Charles Cooke, who is a writer for National Review, he tweeted out that I should give my job to somebody else. Also, I saw a tweet, it was a meme by Kevin Williamson of National Review trying to make me seem stupid. There’s a girl talking about biorhythms, or something. So I’ve gotten my fair share as well from folks on the right and the left and in the media calling me stupid and Trump supporters as well… Exactly I should give up my job according to men in the Republican Party.”

Naturally, the Branch Trumpidians are making her out to be a martyr to freedom of speech. Yes. They are claiming she was taken of the air by a network that essentially an arm of the Donald Trump campaign because she was insufficiently anti-Trump.
