Jen Psaki crossed a major line with what she just did to Clarence Thomas
If conservatives didn’t know how much the Left hated Clarence Thomas, they definitely do now.
It was another low in a three-decades-long smear campaign.
And Jen Psaki crossed a major line with what she just did to Clarence Thomas.
The Supreme Court announced over the weekend that Justice Thomas entered the hospital for treatment of flu-like symptoms.
“He underwent tests, was diagnosed with an infection, and is being treated with intravenous antibiotics,” the Supreme Court’s statement read.
The statement added that Justice Thomas is expected to make a full recovery.
“His symptoms are abating, he is resting comfortably, and he expects to be released from the hospital in a day or two. Justice Thomas will participate in the consideration and discussion of any cases for which he is not present on the basis of the briefs, transcripts, and audio of the oral arguments,” the statement continued.
Jen Psaki made no mention of Thomas’ illness at the White House press briefing, nor did she offer unprompted well wishes for Justice Thomas.
Instead, Psaki only offered sympathy for Justice Thomas 30 minutes into the briefing when prompted by ABC News White House correspondent Elizabeth Schulze.
“And has the White House had any contact with Justice Thomas, given his hospitalization? Do you have any updates there?” Schulze wondered.
“I’m not aware of any direct contacts. Of course, we wish him a speedy recovery. And of course, thoughts — thoughts out to his family,” Psaki answered.
The Left hates Clarence Thomas.
Joe Biden oversaw the smear campaign to destroy Thomas in his 1991 confirmation hearings by giving air time to Anita Hill’s false claims of sexual harassment.
Now Democrats are after Thomas again, but this time attacking him via his wife Ginni.
The New Yorker and New York Times tried to smear Ginni Thomas as an insurrectionist because she attended Trump’s January 6 rally.
This is part of an effort to force Thomas to recuse himself from key Supreme Court cases using the absurd standard that because his wife has political opinions, Justice Thomas cannot fairly decide cases.
But the Left hates Clarence Thomas because he is a conservative black man who the White House could not even bring itself to offer well wishes recovering from illness.
