On Friday, reports of “fully vaccinated” Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh flooded the Internet.
“Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh has tested positive for the coronavirus despite being vaccinated, the Supreme Court announced Friday.”
“In a statement, the court said Kavanaugh had a routine coronavirus test on Thursday and was informed later that night that he had tested positive,” WaPo continued.
“He has no symptoms and has been fully vaccinated since January,” the statement said. The report added that the other justices ‘had tested negative as of last Monday and that Kavanaugh tested negative that day as well.’
“The court’s new term starts Monday. It was not immediately clear how Kavanaugh’s postive [sic] test might affect his participation,” the report continued.
Americans reacted to the news that Brett Kavanaugh had tested positive for Covid with a relative lack of concern and one major questions.
“He’ll be fine,” Jack Posobiec remarked.
“I still don’t understand why people are getting tested when they’re not sick,” one commenter remarked. “It’s stupid.”
“Why do we keep testing people with no symptoms? What’s the reasoning,” another asked.
“Why do you people keep getting tested for a virus you’ve been inoculated against?” one user inquired. “Do you get regular Small Pox tests too?”
“Why are fully vaccinated people with no symptoms testing for Covid. Unless the vaccine doesn’t work then I understand. Maybe that is the problem,” someone remarked.
“Again, if the shots work, why are we testing vaxxed people?? Still confused…” another said.
“Darn it! I thought those jabs worked,” one user replied. “Oh I forgot, the [email protected] doesn’t protect you against catching or spreading it…. Whoa.”
“Why would someone get tested if they have no symptoms and are vaccinated?” one person remarked.
“If he is vaccinated and had no symptoms why the hell was he tested,” a commenter asked. “Makes no sense.”
As recent co-hosts on ABC’s “The View,” Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro reportedly tested positive before an interview with Kamala Harris, only to report later that they received three negative tests in a row.
