After Steve Doocy pointed out that 99% of COVID-19 deaths are of unvaccinated people, Brian Kilmeade said, “That’s their choice!”
During a Fox and Friends segment on the COVID-19 vaccine, co-host Steve Doocy encouraged viewers to get their shots, saying that “99% of the people who died have not been vaccinated.”
Kilmeade, however, felt compelled to stick up for the vaccine-hesitant — whose failure to take action has made it easier for coronavirus variants to spread.
“That’s their choice,” he cut in.
“They don’t wanna die,” Doocy responded, “so the administration and the government is saying we need the mask mandate to protect the unvaccinated.”
Many Twitter users responded to Kilmeade, saying that protecting citizens is, in fact, the government’s duty.
