On Friday, the nation’s top court heard arguments for and against Joe Biden’s tyrannical vaccine mandate that America’s large companies must require employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or take regular tests to ensure they do not have the novel coronavirus.
Conservative justices are skeptical of the mandates, while liberal justices—including Sotomayor—appeared supportive.
Sotomayor faced significant criticism after she falsely claimed that “over 100,000 children” were seriously ill with COVID-19, with “many on ventilators.”
Meanwhile, Government data actually showed as of January 8 that only a few thousand children were hospitalized with confirmed or suspected COVID-19—as some awaited the results of a laboratory test.
During a Fox News interview with Bret Bair Sunday, Walensky refuted Sotomayor’s false claim.
“The number’s not 100,000. It’s roughly 3,500 in hospitals now?” Bret Bair asked.
“Yes,” Walensky replied.
Bair also asked Walensky if she felt “a responsibility as the CDC director to correct a very big mischaracterization by one of the Supreme Court justices?”
BUT She refused to give a direct answer.

As of Jan. 8, about 5,000 US children were hospitalized and confirmed or believed to be coronavirus positive, and according to Walensky, most of them were unvaccinated and/or had underlying conditions.
