President Biden addressed the American people on Thursday, officially marking one year since the COVID-19 pandemic changed life as many knew it, and used the time to praise vaccination rates and his stimulus bill, reveal hopeful plans for a return to normalcy and commemorate the more than 500,000 people who have since died from the virus. However, his tone during the speech rubbed against one particular “Fox and Friends” correspondent the wrong way.

During the latest episode of the Fox News program, Brian Kilmeade, one of the co-hosts, slammed the President’s remarks during his primetime address on Thursday night, which marked not only one year since the start of the pandemic, but his 50th official day in office since his inauguration.

As Biden remarked on the speed of vaccinations and urged Americans to continue doing what was necessary so the pandemic could officially be something where the worst was behind them, it appeared his comments angered Republican lawmakers and commentators, who felt he wasn’t acknowledging the work that Donald Trump’s administration also did.

One such person who felt that way was Kilmeade, who, at one point during his commentary Friday morning, seemed to also criticize the fact that the President once again mentioned the number of people who have died in the U.S. in that year from COVID-19, stating that not only should he stop focusing on that number, but that he was also trying to just focus on ways to slam the prior administration.

“We don’t need to go over the 500,000 dead, we had that moment,” he said on the show. “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.”

However, Kilmeade’s remarks also didn’t sit well with viewers, who then went back and slammed him for being insensitive to not only those whose lives were lost but the ones they left behind.

Others also noted that Kilmeade wanted praise for former President Trump, but pointed out the same courtesy wasn’t extended to his own predecessor, Barack Obama.

Kilmeade and others seemed to take issue with Biden discussing the vaccines and the rate with which they have been produced and how many Americans have so far gotten their shot, arguing that Trump deserved the credit because of his Operation Warp Speed initiative, stating that the vaccines were already in development before Biden even took office, meaning he didn’t deserve the credit.

While two vaccines by Pfizer and Moderna were available to members of the U.S. public in December, Pfizer was not funded by Operation Warp Speed. The company didn’t accept government money from Warp Speed and partnered with BioNTech in Germany to produce their vaccine.
