A new supercut featuring Fox News' top anchors is highlighting their hypocrisy where the COVID-19 vaccine is concerned. The quick video clip, which aired on "The Daily Show" on Tuesday, August 24, shows the timeline of Fox News hosts changing their tune on the vaccine, reports Huff Post.

Initially, they praised former President Donald Trump for what his administration deemed "Operation Warp Speed" — a fast-tracked initiative to expedite the COVID-19 vaccine. Although the former president had a knack for politicizing the pandemic, he also had an obsession with getting the vaccine fast-tracked in hopes of adding a noteworthy, pandemic-related accolade to his presidential resume.

The same Fox News anchors who praised that effort are now criticizing President Joe Biden and his administration.

The clip features Fox News' Brian Kilmeade who recently criticized Biden's timeline while praising Trump's timeline which required him to "get rid of all of the paperwork and all of the bureaucracy."
