Fox’s Brian Kilmeade Wants Business to Reopen: ‘Start Treating the American People Like Adults’
Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade has said businesses may reopen despite the Covid-19 outbreak because Americans are responsible and ‘get it’. Kilmeade’s comments comes after conservatives protested against public safety measured in several states led by Democrats.
The hosts showed a clip of President Donald Trump criticizing Democratic governors for stay-at-home orders.
“What the President is referring to is states with stay-at-home protests that have been planned — that were planned over the weekend.”
“What I think is happening is if you’re sitting there in Buffalo or Syracuse and you’re saying there is no problem here, and I can’t get my job and my company is withering away and then you look at New York City that has a totally different thing it’s up to these governors and mayors to get together and say I got my area. All right? You worry about this.”
“We will kind of give an idea of where the city people are going. And we’ll stay on top of it.”
“Plus, the American people have demonstrated this thing called responsibility. We get it. We understand if we can stand 10 feet away from you at Home Depot, we could probably do it at the dry cleaner and deli. So we could actually get this.
“So I think it’s it’s time for people to understand that we’ll follow orders to a degree. We understand the danger. Everyone’s got somebody they know who has died or is suffering or beat this.”
“So I think that they gotta start treating the American people like adults. I think we have earned it. I think that’s what the President’s saying. I understand the frustration. I understand the governor’s responsibility.”
