Remember all of the CNN and MSNBC talking heads coming up with unique and funny ways to take away former President Donald Trump's phone when he would tweet something problematic?
The good news is that they can reprise all of those jokes again. The bad news, for them, is that they'll have to use them against an administration they generally support -- and in a high-stakes matter where that tweet could end with one of the new administration's most divisive policies getting nixed.
In a Friday ruling from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans that stayed President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate, Biden chief of staff Ron Klain's retweet of an MSNBC host was used as evidence that the administration used a rule from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration as a "work around."
The three-judge panel found "the Mandate’s true purpose is not to enhance workplace safety, but instead to ramp up vaccine uptake by any means necessary," as per the ruling penned by Circuit Judge Kurt Engelhardt.
The ruling declared the mandate was "the rare government pronouncement that is both overinclusive (applying to employers and employees in virtually all industries and workplaces in America, with little attempt to account for the obvious differences between the risks facing, say, a security guard on a lonely night shift, and a meatpacker working shoulder to shoulder in a cramped warehouse) and underinclusive (purporting to save employees with 99 or more coworkers from a 'grave danger' in the workplace, while making no attempt to shield employees with 98 or fewer coworkers from the very same threat.
"The Mandate’s stated impetus -- a purported 'emergency' that the entire globe has now endured for nearly two years, and which OSHA itself spent nearly two months responding to -- is unavailing as well. And its promulgation grossly exceeds OSHA’s statutory authority," the court concluded.
Part of the court's reasoning had to do with one of Klain's retweets, this one from MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle.
