The Fox News crew on “The Five” took Biden to the COVID woodshed on Tuesday over his continuous pandemic failures following a press conference where he uproariously advised Americans to use Google to find “COVID tests near me” rather than offering a cohesive plan to provide more tests across the nation.

Contrary to what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and experts have said, Biden is continuing to double down on his failed claim that COVID is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.” He made the claim once again despite breakthrough cases surfacing where fully vaccinated individuals have come down with COVID in one form or another, according to The AP.

“I know this remains frustrating, believe me, it is frustrating to me. But we are making improvements. We have more capacity for in-person tests we should see waiting lines shortened, and more appointments freed-up,” Biden declared on Tuesday.

“In the last two weeks, we’ve stood up federal testing sites all over the country. We’re adding more each and every day. Google ‘COVID test near me’ — go there. Google — excuse me — ‘COVID test near me’ on Google to find the nearest site where you can get a test most often and free,” the president stumblingly stated.

Biden then told Americans that “state and local governments and healthcare providers are passing out free at-home tests that you can pick up,” but failed to offer advice on obtaining them beyond “just find out where they are.” He proceeded to ignore questions from the press about the status of his plan to mass-mail 500 million at-home rapid test kits as well.

“The Five” co-host Jesse Watters correctly pointed out that former President Trump would never have gotten away with doing such a silly thing.

“If I need a test I will Google it. Can you imagine if Donald Trump told people to Google where to get a test – with lines around the block?” he mockingly noted.

Watters also told viewers that the Spanish and Avian flu both faded away after 3 to 4 variants evolved. He said that Omicron is the fourth variant “wave” for COVID. The Fox News host said that an oncologist he spoke with recently is predicting that the variant will be much less problematic in a month or so.

“If history is any guide, we are going to get rid of this nasty beast pretty soon. I just don’t know why Joe Biden did not know that as he has literally been around for 100 years. And he should have managed the expectations better,” Watters chided.

Co-host Dana Perino objected to Biden’s assertion that the pandemic is caused by the “unvaccinated.” Surprisingly, her liberal colleague Geraldo Rivera also agreed with Perino’s assessment.

Perino reported even though she is vaccinated, boosted, and has had the flu shot, she came down with the symptoms of Omicron over Christmas.

“[Biden] is not sitting outside for three hours waiting for tests, and we are depleting our small supply of tests by testing everybody who does not even need a test,” she posited. “The other thing that I am going to take exception to is when he said that this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. I’m vaccinated, and I am glad I am, because I feel protected from serious illness or hospitalization or even death. That said, I have two vaccines, I was boosted, I also got a flu shot and I spent the whole entire week of Christmas sick as can be after getting two negative rapid tests, one positive, and a negative in order to come back to work. This is no longer about the unvaccinated, we are all suffering from it.”

Rivera has been very critical of the unvaccinated just as Biden has, but he has had an epiphany of sorts. Returning from a vacation in Florida, he tested positive for the virus despite taking all the prescribed precautions laid out by Perino and the rest of the panel.

“I took the test and [my wife] Erica is negative and I am positive. It was shocking to me. It was in some ways embarrassing. I did not quite know how to respond to it, so I did what I usually do, I went on Twitter,” he quipped.

Biden was once again roasted on social media:
