White House chief of staff Ron Klain’s itchy Twitter finger helped derail the Biden administration’s latest vaccine mandate in court.
A Sept. 9 retweet from Klain was cited as a key piece of evidence in the blistering ruling issued Friday by the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, which paused President Biden’s “staggeringly overbroad” rule forcing COVID-19 vaccines on millions of American workers.
In a footnote, the three-judge panel pointed to Klain’s retweet of a post from MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle, who praised Biden’s mandate — enforced by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration — as “the ultimate work-around” to avoid sticky constitutional challenges.
Circuit Judge Kurt Engelhardt characterized the retweet as a White House “endorsement of the term ‘work-around’” — leading the panel to block the mandate on just those legal grounds. MORE AT https://nypost.com/2021/11/13/ron-klain-retweet-spurs-court-to-halt-joe-biden-vaccine-mandate/
