When you're a Supreme Court Justice, the last thing you should do is make any false claims about anything. However, Justice Sonia Sotomayor was busted big time by CNN and other fact checkers after she made a clearly false claim and got called out for it by a LOT of regular folks, but more importantly - the fact checkers.

Greg Gutfeld was there for every minute of it, calling her out and cracking open a can of worms that no Supreme Court Justice should be a part of.

WATCH Greg Gutfeld go ALL OUT against 'scary' Justice Sotomayer:



Here's some background information on why Sotomayor was fact checked and busted with making the false claim.

CNN wrote this fact check on the liberal Justice:
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor made a significant false claim on Friday about Covid-19's impact on children.
Sotomayor made the remark during a Friday hearing about the legality of the Biden administration's attempt to require large employers to force workers to be vaccinated for the virus or undergo weekly testing.

Sotomayor, a liberal, tried during the Friday hearing to emphasize the danger posed by the omicron variant of the virus. She said, "We have over 100,000 children, which we've never had before, in serious condition, and many on ventilators."

Facts First: Sotomayor's claim about children wasn't even close to accurate. According to federal data at the time Sotomayor spoke, fewer than 5,000 people under the age of 18 were hospitalized in the US with confirmed or suspected cases of Covid-19; the reported number of child hospitalizations was 4,464 on Thursday, the day before the hearing, and was still under 5,000 as of Monday afternoon. And though there is no official data on how many of these hospitalized children are in "serious condition" -- a term Sotomayor didn't define but is used by hospitals to refer to patients who are acutely ill, with vital signs that may be unstable -- it's overwhelmingly likely that not all of them are.

Sotomayor could have correctly said that the number of children hospitalized with Covid-19 is at a record level, and she could have correctly said that the number has spiked in the last month as omicron has spread. But the claim that "over 100,000 children" are in "serious condition" is just false.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, acknowledged in a Sunday interview on Fox that the actual number of children in the hospital with confirmed cases of Covid-19 was under 3,500. Walensky emphasized that "the vast majority of children who are in the hospital are unvaccinated, and for those children who are not eligible for vaccination, we do know that they are most likely to get sick with Covid if their family members aren't vaccinated."
From the beginning of August 2020 to Saturday, a total of 85,369 people under the age of 18 with confirmed cases of Covid-19 had been admitted to hospital, according to CDC data.

The Supreme Court communications office did not respond to CNN requests for comment from Sotomayor.
