Supreme Court on Thursday struck down in a 6-3 vote President Joe Biden’s vaccine-or-test mandate for private companies that have more than 100 employees, delivering a major loss to Biden, who is having a really bad week amid cratering approval ratings.

On a second ruling, the court upheld vaccine mandates for health care workers, with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh joining with the three liberals on the bench in a 5-4 vote.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson responded to the second ruling Thursday night on his top-rated program, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” to call Kavanaugh, who was nominated by President Trump, a “cringing little liberal” for the second vote.

Carlson featured Harmeet Dhillon, CEO of the Center for American Liberties, who represents Daily Wire in suing the Biden administration over the workplace mandate, on the show and she said that the first ruling was a “reprieve for the millions of Americans who work for employers who don’t want to impose this mandate,” before commenting on healthcare workers.

“Three of them have been struck down so far, only the one today with health care workers, which I disagree with, but that has gone forward,” she said of Biden’s executive orders. “So, 10 million healthcare workers do have to get vaccinated if they wish to keep their jobs in a covered facility, which is really unfortunate, given the massive shortage that we have of healthcare workers right now in our hospitals.”

“Yeah, with no help from Brett Kavanaugh I notice. Cringing little liberal,” Carlson interjected.

The Fox News host opened the segment with a stinging analysis of the Supreme Court invalidating Biden’s vaccine mandates for private-sector workers.

“The court found the Biden administration was using OSHA as a workaround to impose, ‘broad public health measures’ that are ‘untethered from the work place’… saying he doesn’t have the authority to do this because he’s not God and Congress didn’t pass the law. The court decided that Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for health care workers, by contrast, can remain in place at least for now,” Carlson said. “As it stands this ruling is a rejection of yet another dramatic overreach from a completely out of control administration that believes it knows more about health and science than doctors and nurses. The question is, how is the Biden administration going to respond?”

Noting that the Biden administration lost in its effort to “use the CDC as a vehicle to ban landlords from making renters pay rent,” Carlson continued to unload on Biden.

“But instead of changing its approach — say working with Congress to pass laws, which is how a democracy works, Biden, who is weak and fearful and highly aggressive as a result, decided on a strategy of haranguing lawmakers and calling them racists,” he said. “Of course. That’s always the trump card… This week he did it again. He compared senators who disagreed with him on the filibuster to the leader of the Confederacy and segregation sheriff called Bull Conner.”

“Did that work for him?” Carlson continued. “No. Today Democratic Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin reaffirmed they are not getting rid of the filibuster. They would need to get rid of the filibuster for Biden to pass the so-called voting rights legislation that would make it impossible for any state to ask for picture id before voting. So we have national voter fraud forever. That’s the whole point of it. All of this happened after we learned Biden’s approval rating has fallen to 33% nationally… this is a complete disaster at every level for the Biden administration and it is more precisely a categorical rejection of the way they are governing. Of its equity agenda and rule by decree and tendency to bully anyone, attack anyone… who gets in the way.”

For many on the right, Kavanaugh has proven to be a major disappointment… here’s a quick sampling of responses to yesterday’s rulings from Twitter:
