Fox News host Brian Kilmeade called out President Joe Biden for “insulting” Americans who have not gotten the coronavirus vaccine by saying they were “not nearly as smart” as he thought they were.
Kilmeade appeared on a Wednesday broadcast of “Fox & Friends,” and along with his co-hosts, he addressed Biden’s comments about unvaccinated Americans and the new guidelines on masking imposed by the CDC. (RELATED: Brian Kilmeade Calls Pelosi Interview ‘Embarrassing,’ Slams Impeachment Efforts)
“Are we going back to politicians looking at CDC guidelines and deciding what’s best for us?” Kilmeade asked. “We tried that road, we don’t like that road. We don’t wanna get medical advice from politicians.”
Kilmeade went on to argue that people should have access to the most accurate information possible but that they should then be free to have the choice of whether or not they wanted to get vaccinated.
“More of his insulting comments. Remember his comments: you ain’t black if you’re not voting for me? He just said last week ‘do I suck the blood of children?‘” Kilmeade continued, suggesting that Biden’s insults were part of a pattern of behavior. “Then called the one guy that asked questions about his health, ‘Are you a junkie?’ He accused Facebook of killing people. What is with him and unthoughtful phrases?”
Cohost Steve Doocy also weighed in, suggesting that the Biden administration was effectively punishing vaccinated Americans because they could not mandate the vaccine for everyone.
“They’ve convinced the CDC and worked in coordination with the CDC, and now, what they are doing is masking all of us, essentially punishing the people who got the vaccine,” he said.
