I can’t say I totally agreed with the Supreme Court today. I don’t believe anyone should be able to require another to take a vaccine that is still classified as experimental.
Nonetheless, putting that aside, it would appear that the president can now require Supreme Court justices to take experimental vaccines, whether or not they want to take it. The justices are, after all, federal employees. The thought did not occur to me until after their decision. I wonder if it occurred to those wearing black robes.

I’m pretty sure it did occur to them.
Actually, they’re NOT “federal employees” per the legal meaning of that term. No rules applying to anyone within the Executive Branch – what “federal employees” mean in this legal context – apply to them or anyone in or employed by the Legislative Branch.
Do you really think Joe would let such a thing get in his way should he want to make a few justices retire?
Yes, since he literally can’t do that. No POTUS has ANY say in the behavior of the SCOTUS. .
