If the current emergency hearing over national mandates at the Supreme Court told us anything today, it’s that many of the Justices have about the same level of knowledge of current events as the average NPC on Reddit.
In fact, the shocking lack of knowledge by Justice Sotomayor stole the headlines as she seemed completely clueless while asking questions from the safety of her office. She chose to appear via video for the event.
As I’m sure you have heard by now, Sotomayor got countless facts wrong, many of which are crucial to the case being argued.
This is just absolutely astonishing. "100,000 children in serious condition," per Sotomayor. Where do these people obtain their misinformation? The current national pediatric COVID census per HHS is 3,342. Many/most incidental.

And while people were quick to jump on the many clueless statements made today at the hearing, it actually brings up a very interesting topic.
If you remember all the way back to the election of 2020, which seems like a lifetime ago, part of Trump’s strategy was to get his case alleging election fraud in front of the Supreme Court. He knew state courts would just punt on the allegations, and the Supreme Court would be where the case was ultimately settled.
But that never happened. The SCOTUS punted the case as well, shocking Trump and his supporters alike.
Today though, we understand why. The court is filled with old-timers that appear no more capable than dementia-ridden Joe Biden. They hardly have any grasp of what’s going on in the world or the events they are charged with overseeing and deciding.
It’s fair to think that justices such as Sotomayor had no idea there was even a controversy over the 2020 election.
The covid pandemic has exposed many things, we all know that now. But today, it also exposed to many Americans that their SCOTUS is not what they imagined it to be. Instead of being the ultimate law of the land where the greatest legal minds protect America and the Constitution, it appears to be more like a group of Reddit NPCs who watch MSNBC headlines to make up their minds.
