Sometimes Kilmeade stands out in the crowd with reasonable criticism of the policies of President Donald Trump. On the 17th of January, Fox & Friends hosted a studio audience and asked questions about different themes of the day. On 16 January, four Americans were killed by a suicide bomber in Syria, and ISIS claimed responsibility. But it was Kilmeade who recalled the current state of ISIS saying “clearly they are not dead,” which was a rather sharp rebuke to claim that “ISIS is defeated” in a speech made by Vice President Mike Pence in December 2018.
