The Supreme Court’s recent decision on President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate has gotten pundits on both sides of the aisle in a tizzy, and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson is no exception.
Though many were happy with the ultimate outcome of the deliberation, Carlson blasted nominally conservative Justice Brett Kavanaugh — a Trump appointee — for joining the liberal justices voting to uphold part of the mandate.
Kavanaugh, whom Conservatives rallied around when under brutal attack from the left around the time of his confirmation, chose to side with the Conservative side of the court in regard to a Biden-mandated rule attempting to force private businesses to require employees to get vaccinated.
When it came to the rule requiring medical facilities that take Medicare or Medicaid payments to enforce the mandate, Kavanaugh joined the liberal side of the court.

Thank you @TuckerCarlson for having me on tonight to discuss the predictable defeat of Biden’s #OSHA vaccine mandate at the #SCOTUS. Huge victory for the American people and my client @realDailyWire. Bypassing legislatures and governing by executive order isn’t the American way. pic.twitter.com/I1SjkFm8jg

This isn’t the first time Justice Kavanaugh has made decisions that don’t align with Conservative values, but it’s one of the most egregious, and many on Twitter agreed with Carlson’s assessment.
“I despise Brett Kavanaugh. We should have left him for the wolves. Freaking loser,” radio host Jesse Kelly flamed.
“It was disappointing to see Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh join the Court’s liberals to uphold a mandate that targets health care workers,” said Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). “America’s businesses should forget these mandates faster than Joe Biden forgets his daily schedule.”
Kavanaugh may have at one time been a darling of the right, but this decision could destroy Conservatives’ faith in him for good.
