Marshall University has put an assistant professor on administrative leave amid an investigation into political statements she made during a virtual classroom event. The statement she made did not say it was "Trump supporters" exactly, but it appears she was talking about an event in which some people did not wear masks, possibly referring to a Trump rally or event where some people did not wear masks.
She suggested that she wants people like that to pass way from the CV before the election.

Although administrators did not identify the professor in question, video circulating on social media shows College of Science assistant professor Jennifer Mosher saying she hopes those who don’t wear masks die of the coronavirus before the election.
“I've become the type of person where I hope they get it and die,” Mosher said. “I'm sorry, but 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'll die before the election.’ That's the only saving hope I have right now.”
She went on to say she “should not be talking politics.”

She also referred to the same people as "bootlickers." There is a pending investigation by the university who is looking into the matter.Source: wvpublic
