As Joe Biden’s federal vaccine mandate gets ripped apart in the courts, his own White House Chief of Staff has retweeted a very damaging message on social media.
The courts found that the White House’s own chief of staff had a shady reason for supporting the mandate. This was hidden in a footnote inside the 22-page ruling.
White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain retweeted a message that explains why Biden is forcing employees to get vaccinated.
“OSHA doing this vaxx mandate as an emergency workplace safety rule is an ultimate work-around for the Federal govt to require vaccinations,” Klain retweeted from MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle.
In a bombshell ruling, Judge Kurt Engelhardt said Klain’s retweet was an “endorsement” of the phrase “work-around.”
Engelhardt is one of the three-judge panel on the district court. The vaccine mandate currently faces an emergency temporary stay in a ruling by the Fifth District Court of Appeals.
The drug mandate reportedly has “grave statutory and constitutional” defects.
Here’s the initial tweet that the White House Chief of Staff retweeted:

The judge added in the court’s opinion that the public interest is “served by maintaining our constitutional structure and maintaining the liberty of individuals to make intensely personal decisions according to their own convictions.” Engelhardt seemingly added a veiled reference to Klain’s tweet: “Even, or perhaps particularly, when those decisions frustrate government officials.
The federal appeals court on Friday delivered a serious blow to President Biden’s unlawful federal vaccine mandate. The court’s decision to maintain an emergency stay over the objections of the Biden administration was interpreted by legal analysts as ‘national in scope.’
The court ruled against the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and a number of Biden administration officials. The OSHA regulation mandated that workers in all businesses with 100 or more employees be “fully vaccinated or regularly tested for Covid-19 by Jan. 4.”
The Biden administration exacerbated its unlawful issuance of the mandate by telling employers to ignore the courts.
“People should not wait,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters after the court’s initial ruling. “They should continue to move forward and make sure they’re getting their workplace vaccinated.”
