A Fox News host chided President Biden for dedicating part of his speech to the COVID-19 death toll.
"We don’t need to go over the 500,000 dead. We had that moment," Brian Kilmeade said Friday.
Kilmeade said Biden doesn’t give the Trump administration credit and "kicks them in the groin."

On Friday’s episode of "Fox & Friends," co-host Brian Kilmeade scolded President Joe Biden for bringing up the COVID-19 death toll during his national speech the night before.
"We don’t need to go over the 500,000 dead. We had that moment," Kilmeade said.

Biden brought up the death toll in his speech by referencing the figure he keeps on the back of his daily schedule in the inside pocket of his suit jacket. The rest of the speech was dedicated to his newly-passed stimulus plan and his effort to get all Americans eligible for vaccination by May 1.
As of Friday, over 29 million Americans have tested positive for coronavirus and more than 530,800 people have died of the illness, according to Johns Hopkins University.
In another defense of the former president, Kilmeade addressed Trump directly at another point in the broadcast.
"The Wall Street Journal says – and get this, and if Donald Trump is watching, he’s gonna say ‘I told you so’ – Trump’s biggest mistake was putting too much faith in health experts and their lockdown models."
