The US Supreme Court heard oral arguments regarding OSHA’s COVID vaccination mandate for large companies with 100 or more employees on Friday. The justices were being asked to decide if the Biden administration has the power to ask OSHA to enforce such a mandate.
Unlike many of the other justices (except the far-left Justice Kagan), who asked relevant questions about the mandate, Justice Sotomayor aggressively interrupted the lawyers who argued against the overreaching mandates and made ridiculous statements in what appeared to be an attempt to aid the Biden regime’s push to force every worker to be vaccinated or lose their ability to earn a living.
Sotomayor took her arguments on behalf of forcing Americans to receive vaccines as a way to keep their jobs and feed their families a bit too far when she made a grossly inaccurate statement (she lied) about how COVID-19 is affecting the health of children.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton tweeted that the Supreme Court should quickly issue a public correction to correct Sotomayor’s reckless statement after Shannon Bream from Fox News reported her statement in a tweet:
J. Sotomayor says over 100K children in serious condition, “many on ventilators” #SCOTUS

Today, during a segment on Fox News Sunday, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky set the record straight contradicted Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s incorrect claim that there are 100,000 pediatric COVID hospitalizations on Sunday.
Fox News host Bret Baier asked Walensky, “The number is not 100,000. It’s roughly 3500 in hospitals now?”
Walensky deflected and turned the question into a campaign about the need to vaccinate children.
Baier pressed her again, attempting to force her to answer his question.
Instead of responding to the bogus numbers Sotomayor used in her argument, she told Baier, “Yes. In fact, what I will say is, while pediatric hospitalizations are rising, they’re still about 15 fold less than hospitalizations of our older age or age demographic.”
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky refutes Justice Sotomayor's statement that "over 100,000 children" are hospitalized due to COVID, with "many on ventilators":

Justice Sonia Sotomayor made the ridiculous statement about child hospitalizations, knowing that it could easily be debunked with CDC data. Why would she do that? Could it be that she doesn’t care if she’s humiliated?
