Fox Business Network's Melissa Francis calls herself a "news anchor." That means she's supposed to keep her opinions to herself and not be an open advocate for presidential candidates. But Francis didn't even bother to hide her glee at Donald Trump's electoral victory last night.
Here are some of her tweets:

Are we about to get sick of winning?— Melissa Francis (@MelissaAFrancis) November 9, 2016
The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.— Melissa Francis (@MelissaAFrancis) November 9, 2016

Let's not forget that this same "news anchor" said not long ago, "I would gnaw off my right hand and have a stump" before I would vote for Hillary.
