BREAKING: Supreme Court Justice Is OUT – She Says No More…

When Justice Sonia Sotomayor started staying home because of Justice Neil Gorsuch’s refusal to wear a mask, establishment media was quick to play up the fact that the feud started because Gorsuch refused to wear a mask despite Chief Justice John Roberts asking him to do so.

Except it wasn’t true. It wasn’t true AT ALL.

It turns out Gorsuch had NEVER refused to wear a mask, and it turns out that NOBODY had EVER asked him to do so.

Instead of Sotomayor asking Gorsuch to wear a mask because she has diabetes and is therefore high risk of dying from COVID, she simply decided to stay home.

That’s it. That’s all that happened, that is the ENTIRE story.

Of course, NPR was DYING to make a mountain out of a molehill. Here’s what they said:

“It was pretty jarring earlier this month when the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court took the bench for the first time since the omicron surge over the holidays. All were now wearing masks. All, that is, except Justice Neil Gorsuch. What’s more, Justice Sonia Sotomayor was not there at all, choosing instead to participate through a microphone setup in her chambers.

Sotomayor has diabetes, a condition that puts her at high risk for serious illness, or even death, from COVID-19. She has been the only justice to wear a mask on the bench since last fall when, amid a marked decline in COVID-19 cases, the justices resumed in-person arguments for the first time since the onset of the pandemic.

Now, though, the situation had changed with the omicron surge, and according to court sources, Sotomayor did not feel safe in close proximity to people who were unmasked. Chief Justice John Roberts, understanding that, in some form asked the other justices to mask up.

They all did. Except Gorsuch, who, as it happens, sits next to Sotomayor on the bench. His continued refusal since then has also meant that Sotomayor has not attended the justices’ weekly conference in person, joining instead by telephone.”

It’s simply not true that Chief Justice Roberts had implemented a mask rule. He never did. If neither Roberts NOR Sotomayor ever even asked Gorsuch to put on a mask, then who was he refusing to?

The answer is simple. He never did.
