Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is known for having a good sense of humor and for not being a fan of the liberal media.
He recently highlighted both of these aspects of his personality by slapping the media with a funny comment.
FOX News reports:
Clarence Thomas rips media: I’ll leave my job when I do it as poorly as you do yours
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas ripped into his critics in the liberal media on Friday, prompting roars of laughter from a Dallas audience.
Thomas has been the subject of scrutiny from progressive reporters and pundits on numerous occasions.
In February, the Washington Post was forced to issue a “clarification” after a news article said that Thomas’ thinking was similar to that of a “White conservative.” They updated the piece to note his thoughts were similar to that of conservatives, rather than White conservatives, specifically.
In another notable example, MSNBC host Joy Reid sparked outrage after she called Thomas “Uncle Clarence,” an unsubtle reference to the “Uncle Tom” slur, during the 2020 election night coverage…
On Friday, during a discussion on racial inequality and the Supreme Court at the Old Park conference, Thomas decided to hit back on his critics in the media.
“One of the things I’d say in response to the media is when they talk about, especially early on, about the way I did my job, I said ‘I will absolutely leave the court when I do my job as poorly as you do yours—and that was meant as a compliment really,” Thomas said, as the audience, and forme Bush administration official John C. Yoo burst out laughing.
