Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett enraged the MAGA and forced-birth (don't you dare call them "pro-life") crowd by allowing Indiana University to mandate COVID vaccines for its students. She "denied an emergency petition filed by lawyers representing eight Indiana University students that called on the Supreme Court to block the university's coronavirus vaccine mandate, according to NBC News."

This has conservatives and wingers biiiiggg maaadddzzzzz.
The following asshat is primary-ing Tim Scott for his South Carolina Senate seat in 2022, and you guessed it - he's a forced-birther.
Pleasant surprise, and celebration/mocking of MAGA tears reigned supreme on the liberal side:
This take might be the most logical explanation, actually...

Finally, enjoy (not) Donald J. Trump himself pontificating on the significance of Justice Amy Coney Barrett's decision.
