Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor was blasted for making false claims during oral arguments on President Biden’s vaccine mandates.
Here are Sotomayor’s false claims reported by the New York Post:
“Omicron is as deadly as Delta … we have hospitals that are almost at full capacity with people severely ill on ventilators.”
“We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in serious condition and many on ventilators.”
Here is Justice Sotomayor saying that "hospitals are almost all full capacity" and there are "over 100,000 children" hospitalized with covid "many on ventilators.

Yahoo news reported on the data that refuted Sotomayor’s false statement on children.
The current number of confirmed pediatric hospitalizations with Covid in the U.S. is 3,342, according to data from the Department of Health and Human Services released on Friday. The average number of children admitted to the hospital per day with Covid was 776 as of Tuesday, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Studies have found the Omicron virus is less virulent than the delta variant.
PolitiFact determined her claim was false.

Last November, Sotomayor made an appearance on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” to promote her book.
Sotomayor is a national embarrassment because she spewed propaganda her ignorance is outrageous and damages the credibility of the Supreme Court.
