Brian Kilmeade, co-host of “Fox & Friends,” is upset that President Joe Biden dared to repeat the current death toll in the United States from the COVID-19 pandemic and also thinks that Biden should have given former President Donald Trump much more credit for helping develop vaccines to combat the deadly virus.

Reviewing Biden’s Thursday evening address to the nation, Kilmeade whined that the current president should have tipped his cap to Trump for Operation Warp Speed, which helped develop the vaccines currently being used.

Kilmeade was also displeased that Biden referred to the 525,000 Americans who have been killed by COVID over the past year, the highest death rate in the world:

“We don’t need to go over the 500,000 dead! We had that moment! 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!”

But what Kilmeade completely neglected to mention is that Trump repeatedly downplayed the danger posed by coronavirus, claimed it would “disappear” just as quickly as it appeared, and steadfastly refused to wear a protective mask or encourage Americans to take the steps necessary to slow its spread.

Trump also flat-out lied to the public, even going so far as to suggest that ingesting bleach and introducing light into the body had proven to be effective as treatments.

Give Trump credit? For what?! If he’d done his job and taken the health crisis from COVID-19 seriously instead of trying shift blame to others, we might be past the worst of the disease. Instead, President Biden is having to clean up his predecessor’s mess and restore the country to some semblance of normality.

If the yahoos over at Fox News can’t handle the truth (provided they even know what the truth is), maybe they need to sit quietly and not get in the way as a real president does his job.
