Novak Djokovic Aussie Open update:

Australian PM Scott Morrison says Djokovic needs to prove he has a genuine medical exemption from the COVID vaccine mandate when he enters the country or "he'll be on the next plane home."
As a reminder, here's the Australian Open's statement:
Djokovic has landed in Australia and is currently being questioned by border officials.
After hours of screening since his touchdown, it looks like Novak Djokovic's Australian Open has ended before it began.

Australia has canceled the visa of world #1 Novak Djokovic and intends to deport him on Thursday.
"Rules are rules," says Australian PM Morrison.

FOX & Friends' Rachel Campos-Duffy on Rep. @AOC dining in Florida last week: "When I saw this I thought first of all this is a great endorsement of [Gov.] Ron DeSantis and of Florida's policies."

CNN's @kaitlancollins: "It sounds like this decision had just as much to do with business as it did the science."

@CDCDirector Dr. Rochelle Walensky: "It really had a lot to do with what we thought people would be able to tolerate."
