Fox News host Brian Kilmeade dug into President Biden's plummeting poll numbers amid his COVID-19 diagnosis and reflected on his nearly 50-year career in the Senate on "One Nation with Brian Kilmeade."

BRIAN KILMEADE: The big story of the week: The president of the United States, 79 years old, tested positive for COVID-19. Indications are he's going to be fine.

Just look at his nearly 50-year career in the Senate, most of which was caught on camera. Case in point, the top issues of today and yesterday.

Is it any surprise we're in the muddled economic and foreign policy funk that we're in right now? As much as people want to say, "Joe, well, he's too old, Joe's too slow." They really should be saying, "Joe's being Joe."
