Idaho’s rogue Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin doesn’t like having to explain her actions. When a CNN reporter asked her Friday to explain why she was “undermining” her boss by issuing a rogue ban on vaccine mandates, she shot back, “I’m not going to talk anymore to an activist.” Gov. Brad Little was out of state on official business this week when McGeachin sneakily issued an executive order banning COVID vaccine mandates in schools. It was the third time McGeachin, who reportedly intends to run for governor, double-crossed her boss while he was out of town; she previously imposed a state-wide mask ban and mobilized National Guard troops to go to the Mexico border.
“What do you say to your critics who say this is absurd?” the reporter asked McGeachin Friday. “Again, you’re being an activist,” she said, adding she’s not anti-vax but is anti-mandate. The reporter pointed out there are no vaccine mandates in Idaho. “Interview’s over,” she said as she stormed off.
