It was only a matter of time. Last week President Joe Biden announced a vaccine mandate for federal workers. Now, the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin is expected to announce such a mandate for active duty troops. On Wednesday, CNN’s Barbara Starr reported that Austin “is expected to seek authorization to make Covid-19 vaccines mandatory for all active duty troops as soon as this week.” This should not come as a surprise. For one, who could forget Sec. Austin arriving to the Philippines last week donning a mask and face shield, with Scott highlighting Tucker Carlson’s reaction to it.
