“Well, there--see, he did not provide good counsel.”— Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas' only words during the oral arguments in nearly seven years. Justice Thomas was joking about a Harvard-educated counsel representing the murder suspect Jonathan Boyer; Justice Thomas' alma mater is Yale. The words were spoken last week, but the transcript was published yesterday.
@DonQuixotic you wouldnt say that about a white justice - you racist pig
@DonQuixotic His mind's set in concrete ("I will not evolve"). Why pay attention unless you can get a joke in every seven years? We wouldn't want any thinking going on.
@kbanginmotown I'm not even sure Thomas really said that. Maybe he lip-synched it or someone catfished it on the SCOTUS web site or Facebook page.
@MrObvious Thomas isn't a good SC justice because he's conservative. He just isn't good.
@sacredh is that a "ape" reference? you racist pig
People like Thomas starts a little lower before they reach the evolved status. It was more a AI reference since most of his action seems like a robotic reaction to the needs of the rest of the rightwingers on the supreme court. I don't think anyone talk about Thomas as the great legal mind of the court.
I looked into the abyss and the abyss said "Go take a nap. You have to work midnight." Who am I to argue with the forces of darkness? Goodnight.
