When the Court issued its National Review blog post striking down the OHSA’s test-or-vaccinate mandate for large employers, it allowed the mandate for healthcare workers to remain in place over an absolutely deranged dissent written by Clarence Thomas and joined by Alito, Gorsuch, and Barrett (remember the arguments that she would never rule against public health because she was after all a Mother of Children LOL?) For not absolutely maximizing the number of people who will get infected and die based on a bunch of ad hoc nonsense, Brett Kavanuagh is getting pilloried by the usual suspects:
Fox News host Tucker Carlson got the ball rolling Thursday night by muttering that Kavanaugh was a “cringing little liberal.”
“I’m sorry. I’m not going to ask you to respond to that,” he said to his guest, a former campaign adviser to Donald Trump, who nominated Kavanaugh in 2018.
Friday morning, Donald Trump Jr. also took aim at the man his father had nominated.
Later Friday, perhaps Donald Trump’s likeliest successor as a GOP presidential nominee, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), joined in.
“Honestly, Roberts and Kavanaugh didn’t have a backbone on that decision — that’s the bottom line,” said DeSantis, who has been among the GOP’s foremost critics of vaccine mandates.
So that’s the most popular conservative cable news host, the former president’s son and perhaps the most ascendant not-named-Trump Republican in the country all going after Kavanaugh in very pointed ways and suggesting that he has effectively caved to pressure from the left.
Florida won’t be enforcing the Biden Administration’s mandatory vaccination policy for health care workers upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, a spokeswoman for the governor’s office said Thursday.
“The state of Florida is not going to serve as the Biden Administration’s biomedical police,” Christina Pushaw, press secretary for Gov. Ron DeSantis, said in an email to the USA TODAY Network-Florida. “Firing unvaccinated healthcare workers, many of whom have infection-conferred immunity, is unethical and unscientific on its face.”
COVID today, COVID tomorrow, COVID forever!
