Placing 3 new Supreme Court Justices was one of Donald Trump’s few accomplishments as president. Getting Neal Gorsuch approved was a relatively easy process. Amy Coney Barrett, the third judge, was a little more difficult. But Brett Kavanaugh, the middle judge, was by far the biggest challenge.
And since that process was so challenging, Conservatives believe that Kavanaugh owes them something. So whenever the judge sides with the Liberals, it is seen as a betrayal. Tucker Carlson proved this point last night when he blasted Kavanaugh for siding with the Democrats on vaccine mandates.
The Fox host ranted:
“He’s not God, and the Congress didn’t pass the law. The court decided that vaccine mandate for healthcare workers, by contrast, can remain in place at least for now. But as it stands this ruling is a rejection of yet another dramatic overreach from a completely out of control administration that believes it knows more about health and science than doctors and nurses.”
Carlson then turned to his guest Harmeet Dillon who responded, “So, 10 million healthcare workers do have to get vaccinated if they wish to keep their jobs in a covered facility is unfortunate, given the massive shortage that we have of healthcare workers right now in our hospitals.”
The Fox host snidely remarked, “Yeah, with no—with no help from Brett Kavanaugh, I notice. Cringing little liberal.”
