Andrea Tantaros, the conservative commentator who’s been missing from the Fox News Channel’s Outnumbered since April, is still very active in her political analysis.
Tantaros has a Twitter account that’s private and not accessible by the general public, but some have seen her messages and took screenshots of them to retweet. The messages were posted by the Outnumbered co-host at the very end of July.
The Fox News Channel star was unsparing in her tweets against Hillary Clinton. She expresses sheer disapproval over the Democratic presidential nominee, unafraid to rip her up one side and down the other. Tantaros notes that it’s a “bittersweet” moment for women because while it would be great for a female nominee to get in America’s highest office, it shouldn’t be Clinton. She goes on to say that the former First Lady and secretary of State rose through the ranks simply by riding on the coattails of her husband.
Tantaros doesn’t think Hillary is exemplary of the type of woman to be president because she’s married to a “serial” cheater and alleged rapist. She doesn’t comprehend how someone like Hillary Clinton can be a figure women look up to. Instead of representing other women, she’s used feminism as a tool to push her own political agenda.
Furthermore, Andrea Tantaros pinpoints Hillary’s email scandal and the decision that FBI Director James Coney arrived to when he announced that the presidential nominee wouldn’t be indicted on any criminal charges for putting the nation at risk by using her personal server to send and receive highly confidential correspondence. Tantaros insists this is emblematic of Clinton’s involvement in corruption.
There’s also the much talked about case of Hillary Clinton somehow rigging the system to win the 2016 nomination by maligning Bernie Sanders’ supporters.

Clearly, Tarantos is still speaking out about how things are unfolding in today’s crazy election.
What happened to Tarantos? According to many reports, there are speculations that her book Tied Up In Knots: How Getting What We Wanted Made Women Miserable may have influenced some higher ups at the network to quietly let her go. An even bigger theory still is that she was a staunch Donald Trump supporter. Whatever the real reason, no official answers have surfaced.
In April, Fox did release statement that was posted on TV Newser that centered around Tantaros’ absence. It suggested that contract negotiations were related to her extended “vacation.”
“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,” Fox said.
On her Twitter page, her bio still reads that she’s a co-host of Outnumbered. There’s no indication that she’s a “former” member of the cast or that she’s not a political analyst with Fox.

The petition Bring Back Andrea Tantaros was started not long after she vanished from the show. The goal was to get 1,000 signatures and it wound up with over 15,000. There’s no word on what’s going on with getting Tantaros back on Fox following the overwhelming response.

It remains to be seen if Andrea Tantaros will return to Outnumbered. Her unvarnished commentary and outspoken views make her a favorite among viewers. While the political analyst is sorely missed on Fox by millions of viewers, it doesn’t appear to be over. Don’t be surprised if she makes quite a comeback.
