U.S. federal Judge and Trump appointee Kathryn Kimball Mizelle officially blocked the Biden Administration’s public transportation mask mandate —no more masking up on airplanes. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was especially happy with the decision; DeSantis has been a big opponent of “COVID theater.”
“Great to see a federal judge in Florida follow the law and reject the Biden transportation mask mandate. Both airline employees and passengers deserve to have this misery end,” DeSantis tweeted.

Travelers took to Twitter to share celebrations in airports and on airplanes:

This @SouthwestAir gate agent was so excited to tell everyone that SW officially dropped the mask mandate. But because DC is a leftist cesspool, the crowd—aside from me and like two other people—did not meet his excitement level. Oh well SO HAPPY TO FLY MASKLESS. pic.twitter.com/1zxj88cVYx
