Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “'The View' co-host gives SCOTUS Justice Sotomayor a pass for 'wildly incorrect' COVID claims: 'I just want to re-frame this'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Sunny Hostin, co-host of "The View," excused in stunning fashion Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor's COVID-19 misinformation that she parroted from the bench last week.

While hearing oral arguments for and against President Joe Biden's employer COVID vaccine mandate, Sotomayor erroneously claimed that 100,000 children in the United States are hospitalized because of serious complications from COVID.

"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," she said.

The Washington Post fact-checked Sotomayor's claim and described it as "wildly incorrect." In fact, only several thousand children were hospitalized with COVID when Sotomayor made her claim (and the number hospitalized for COVID was likely even lower), and less than 100,000 children have been hospitalized for/with COVID during the entire pandemic.

The liberal commentator dismissed the egregious nature of Sotomayor's claims by arguing the spirit of Sotomayor's sentiment was correct and therefore the claims were not really that far off base.
