Now she’s back, clawing at relevance once again, seeking to boost herself in the news cycle for perhaps one more run at the presidency if Joe Biden doesn’t make it to 2024. Her latest attention-seeking ploy is to publicly insult Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Tom Woods explains in the Tom Woods Letter:
Well, Hillary Clinton — or, as I like to call her, Mrs. Sunshine — sure isn’t happy about Clarence Thomas (who is by far the best Justice on the Supreme Court, so of course she can’t stand him).
She just told Gayle King on CBS This Morning: “I went to law school with him. He’s been a person of grievance for as long as I have known him — resentment, grievance, anger.”
Now that’s rich! Hillary Clinton calling someone else a person of resentment, grievance, and anger! Mrs. Sunshine herself.
Not to mention: Hillary was in a different graduating class from Thomas, who wasn’t even yet a conservative at that point.
Bryan Griffin, deputy press secretary for Florida governor Ron DeSantis, intervened to share his own experience with Justice Thomas:
After I passed the bar, I stopped Clarence Thomas in a lobby in D.C. and asked him if he would do me the honor of swearing me in as a lawyer (2015). He invited me to his office at the Supreme Court the next day (after work) and spent hours with me in conversation, earnestly affording me his time and encouraging me.
A friend and a law professor accompanied me. He showed us pictures from his latest vacation with his wife and fondly spoke of the love he has for her. We discussed America, and from everything he said it was clear he loves this country and the people in it….
He did not know me or owe me anything. But he afforded me incredible kindness. I am certain he extends the same to others.
He is committed to the Constitution, which is how he came to this and his other decisions. Clarence Thomas is neither angry nor resentful, and this is abundantly clear to anyone who has interacted with him in person.
