    Daily Wire editor emeritus Ben Shapiro joined "Fox & Friends" Friday to discuss The Daily Wire's win over the Biden administration's vaccine mandate for private businesses.

    The Daily Wire filed a lawsuit in November against the administration over the mandate, and on Thursday the Supreme Court blocked the order, which was pushed via the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, known commonly as OSHA.

    "Ben, how does it feel to take on the government and win?" asked "Fox & Friends" host Brian Kilmeade.

    "We here at The Daily Wire are really excited about this and we put our money where our mouth was," Shapiro responded. "We spent hundreds of thousands of dollars, and we were the first company in America to file against the vax mandate and watching them going down in flaming defeat is well worth that cost."

    "Joe Biden, by the way, his approval rating - more people now like certain types of bowel cancer than like Joe Biden at this point," Shapiro snarked. "And I think that's well deserved."

    Shapiro noted that some of the vaccine mandates were said to have been put into place to help "stop the spread" of COVID, but highlighted that it's now known that the vaccines do not stop infection.

    "Well, this is one of the big problems here," the Daily Wire founder explained. "The vaccines are not preventing infection. They're preventing hospitalization and death, and that's wonderful and that's important, but they're not preventing infection, which means a lot of the vax mandates don't in fact achieve their stated purpose."

    "And what the government was threatening to do was to put businesses completely underground," Shapiro explained, "destroy the businesses if you didn't force your employees to vax or regularly test and mask. We weren't willing to do that at The Daily Wire."

    When the decision came down, Shapiro said, some employees in the Daily Wire Nashville office broke down in tears, knowing their jobs were finally safe.

    "Our Daily Wire offices in Nashville, people were crying when they watched the decision coming down," he revealed, "because people thought they'd lose their jobs over this. And they weren't alone; there were tens of millions of people across the country who felt that same way."

    Shapiro added that it's "worth noting" that the decision would have likely gone the other way had it not been for former President Donald Trump's appointments to the Supreme Court.

    "By the way, it's worth noting here, if not for the fact that President Trump was able to appoint three justices, no question that the administrative state would do whatever the hell it would want in this country," the "Right Side of History" author said.
