Kilmeade spoke to three students about some of their experiences in virtual learning, including Mason Seder, a sixth-grader from Philadelphia, about what he misses about going to school in person,
“I miss, most obviously, seeing my friends and all the after-school activities that I have done. And I think that we’re very, very close to getting back to school,” said Seder after mentioning that his teachers have done an impressive job despite challenges.
But it wasn’t until Seder compared president Biden to Trump that Kilmeade was taken aback.
“And I think that the way that our new president is handling things is a very good way, and we would not have gone to this if it were still the last president,” Seder continued.
