Last week, while the Supreme Court heard arguments over the Biden administration’s highly controversial COVID-19 jab mandate, Justice Sonia Sotomayor made some startling claims as she suggested over 100,000 children in the U.S. are hospitalized due to COVID-19. While her statement were heavily embellished and even debunked by the Washington Post, it appears “The View” co-host, Sunny Hostin, decided to give the Supreme Court Justice a pass for trying to spread misinformation and hysteria around COVID-19. 

During Sotomayor’s statement, she said, “We have hospitals that are almost at full capacity with people severely ill on ventilators. We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in serious condition, and many on ventilators.”

Labeling her claim as “wildly incorrect”, the Washington Post would add that only a few thousand children were hospitalized and less than 100,000 have been admitted to care centers since the pandemic started. 

But even as the Democrats and Big Tech attack conservatives and censor them for supposedly spreading misinformation, Hostin didn’t see an issue. She said, “Well, first I just want to re-frame this a little bit about Justice Sotomayor. You know, she may not be accurate for current hospitalizations in children; she’s correct that we have more children in the hospital now more than ever before, and it certainly reflects the current cases in children.”

Are you embarrassed to have Joe Biden as America's "President"?

Hostin would later add, “Right now, we have 82,843 children sick with COVID; more than a 1,000 children have died from the virus. In addition, about 7.8 million children have caught COVID since the pandemic started, and so those are just the numbers, and so, while fewer than 83,000 kids have been hospitalized with the virus, we have kids sick with COVID more than we ever have before, and so that’s a real thing and those are real numbers.”

While the left was quick to give Sotomayor a pass, they didn’t share the same sentiment with Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, who was criticized for claiming “hundreds of thousands” of people died from the flu each year.
