On Monday, Florida-based U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle humiliated the Biden administration after tossing the mask mandate that applies to public transportation, namely airlines, buses, and trains.
According to Fox News, the White House was seemingly caught off-guard after the federal judge’s decision, as it said of the outcome that it was “obviously a disappointing decision.” The CDC’s mask mandate for public transportation had just been extended until May 3 before Judge Mizelle struck it down.
“The CDC recommended continuing the order for additional time two weeks to be able to assess the latest science in keeping with its responsibility to protect the American people, so, this is obviously a disappointing decision,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said.
The COVID mask cultists were left in hysterics after the ruling, including many leftist mainstream media networks that were quick to pick apart the judge’s ruling.
The game-changing case
Judge Mizelle’s ruling came about as the conclusion of a case brought to her court by “Health Freedom Defense Fund, Inc. and frequent air travelers Ana Daza and Sarah Pope against the administration,” Fox noted.
Long story short, the judge ruled that the mandate violated the Administrative Procedure Act.
She had also labeled the federal transportation mask mandate as “arbitrary” and “capricious,” noting that certain procedures weren’t adhered to as far as the public comment period on the mandate.
As the news broke of the federal judge’s ruling, viral video emerged of airline passengers cheering when they were told the news, proving that most Americans are sick and tired of the ineffective face muzzle mandates we’ve endured for two years.

Will the DOJ appeal?
The first immediate question after the ruling was handed down in the Florida court was whether or not President Joe Biden’s DOJ would appeal the ruling.
The Biden administration slithered out of the question, leaving it all on the CDC, essentially saying that if the CDC feels it necessary to continue the mask mandate, the Justice Department will mount its appeal.
“If CDC concludes that a mandatory order remains necessary for the public’s health after that assessment, the Department of Justice will appeal the district court’s decision,” DOJ said in an official statement.
