Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade Wants to Move on From Those 500,000+ COVID Deaths






“We don’t need to go over the 500,000 dead. We had that moment,” says Fox News host, adding Trump isn’t receiving enough credit for his actions

Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade on Friday said President Joe Biden needlessly focused on the American COVID-19 death toll during his Thursday night news briefing. Instead, he said, Biden could have spent time praising former president Donald Trump for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We don’t need to go over the 500,000 dead. We had that moment,” Kilmeade said during a “Fox & Friends” review of the president’s primetime address.

“Let’s talk about the future moving forward. Every time he has a chance to praise the previous administration, he not only doesn’t praise, he kicks them in the groin,” he added.


He also mentioned during the morning show’s discussion of Biden’s speech that the president, in his opinion, doesn’t give Trump and his Operation Warp Speed enough credit for the rate of vaccination happening in America now.


On Wednesday, one day before his predecessor gave his primetime address about the pandemic that has killed over half a million Americans, Trump released a statement that read, “I hope everyone remembers when they’re getting the COVID-19 (often referred to as the China Virus) Vaccine, that if I wasn’t President, you wouldn’t be getting that beautiful “shot” for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn’t be getting it at all. I hope everyone remembers!”

In January, Biden’s chief of staff Rob Klain said the Trump administration left no distribution plan for the coronavirus vaccine. “The process to distribute the vaccine, particularly outside of nursing homes and hospitals out into the community as a whole, did not really exist when we came into the White House,” Klain told NBC’s “Meet the Press” shortly after the Biden administration took over.

Fox News has contributed programming of its own to honoring the lives lost, as well as educating viewers about topics like business re-openings and the vaccine rollout. This week, the network ran a series of special programming honoring the one-year anniversary of the World Health Organization’s designation of COVID-19 as a global pandemic.

People scoff when I point this out yet President Biden essentially had to start from scratch after the prior criminal enterprise 'administration'

Listen, Dick Head....if you hadn't dodged, ducked, dived, and drooled for an entire year we could have had half the country vaccinated last Christmas!

trmp didn't really do anything to help the pandemic. I will say he at least got out of the way so the people with the brains could work on a vaccine

Dr Fauci wants Trump to encourage his followers to get vaccinated,  Trump didn't give a shit about the dying and the dead so he won't care if the living gets vaccinated.  He finds his base to be disgusting people (his words) and could care less if they live or die.

Thank you President Trump and the former administration for Operation Warp Speed, cutting red tape and enabling us to have not one, not two but currently three viable and effective vaccines to combat this virus unleashed on the world.

Thankfully the Biden administration had you to thank for the successful rollout and vaccination program through at least the beginning of March 2021 when they were using the very program the Trump administration devised and initiated when the vaccines initially became available.

PS:  I do need to remind President Biden that the vaccine that didn't exist before you took office was actually INJECTED INTO YOUR ARM in December 2020, prior to your inauguration.  you do remember that don't you?  Or do you?

No, because he took office when there were still 3k deaths a day. Unless you think that a president can change the entire pandemic on the day he is sworn in. Biden has done more to combat the pandemic in 2 months than trump did the entire time he was in office and Covid was active.

Biden's done nothing new.  After he fooled Americans into thinking he had a plan, (remember Mr. shut down the virus, not the economy) he admitted when he was sworn in that nothing he could do would change the trajectory of the pandemic and nothing he has done has. As vaccine and herd immunity increase, numbers go down. It started before Biden was sworn in and will continue until there are only isolated cases left.

People crediting or blaming a President for the course of a pandemic are no more evolved than people who blame witches for a bad harvest.

Of course 10% of the population would be vaccinated if Trump won.  A monkey could be President and 10% of the population would be vaccinated right now.  Imagine thinking Joe "What's the Pentagon?" Biden is somehow responsible for vaccinations.

If masks don't help, why are they mandatory for doctors performing surgery? Would YOU want to have surgery with a doctor and staff that don't wear masks or wash their hands? 

I am guessing the answer is, "no". Of course masks help, there have already been a mountain of studies that prove that.

In July, Pfizer got a $1.95 billion deal with the government’s Operation Warp Speed, the multiagency effort to rush a vaccine to market, to deliver 100 million doses of the vaccine.

On Monday, a spokeswoman for Pfizer clarified that the company is part of Operation Warp Speed as a supplier of a potential coronavirus vaccine.

Trump turned down one million additional doses which the US was offered, essentially sending us to the back of the line to get them back.

Peter Hotez invented the basic SARS vaccine between 2003 and 2016 when HHS said no more funding for SARS

and he could not find funding anywhere else so his vaccine sat in deep freeze at Baylor until January of 2020.

By April 2020, prior to the announcement of Operation Warp Speed, Pfizer was already doing human trials.

Mix self preservation with the greed associated with potentially 20 billion doses and you have an excellent incentive to be

first to approval, first to market.

Warp Speed had nothing to do with it. Trump enticed them with a large preorder.  Nothing more.

While Covid deaths rose rapidly over the last 6 months Trump spent his time lying about fantasy election fraud and played golf dozens of times. Then, right after the death toll peaked mid January and Biden was sworn in the death toll has steadily decreased and he hasn't played a single round of golf. Instead he signed at least 15 executive orders specifically targeting Covid and the results speak for themselves.
