Biden has ‘no plan,' COVID-19 response riding on victories from Trump: Kilmeade

Is Biden slow-walking therapeutics so as not to upend vax plan?: Kilmeade

Kilmeade blasts the Biden administration for failing to ramp up efforts to expand COVID-19 testing availability, leading to lines blocks long on ‘Fox News Primetime.’

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade said Thursday that President Biden failed to amp up testing availability, and a significant portion of the COVID-19 response under him was made possible by former President Donald Trump.

“With COVID cases rising all across the country, it’s becoming pretty obvious the Biden administration has no plan to stop the spread,” Kilmeade said on “Fox News Primetime.” “We still don’t have enough testing. It’s a travesty … President Biden already knew this back in December 2020.”

Biden explained the surge of COVID-19 cases by claiming no one saw the variants coming. Vice President Kamala Harris similarly said “most scientists” didn’t see the delta variant coming. 

However, Biden’s chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said “we definitely saw variants coming” on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“The White House may have been surprised, but plenty of leading scientists were not, including former CDC Director Robert Redfield, who sounded the alarm in the summer,” Kilmeade said.

The Food and Drug Administration authorized Pfizer’s COVID-19 pill Wednesday, and Kilmeade pointed out that the Biden administration doesn’t “seem juiced about it.”

About the antiviral pill — Paxlovid — Biden said, “I hope we don’t get there, because if people get the shots, they get their two shots and a booster. They’re not going to be in a position where they’re going to need such a pill.”

“The president unknowingly just showed his hand,” Kilmeade said. “He and his team [are] perhaps slow-walking therapeutics and antivirals because they believe that a treatment plan would kill the vaccination plan.”
