Hillary Clinton is pushing dangerous falsehoods about the Supreme Court.
But her outrageous claims were blasted to bits with a single sentence.
Ron DeSantis destroyed Hillary Clinton’s lies with these four words.
Democrats keep claiming that the conservative Supreme Court justices are badly motivated when they come to conclusions that the Left doesn’t like.
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton blasted U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas for his opinion that the court should reconsider rulings on contraception and same-sex marriage.
Clinton, who went to law school with Thomas, decided to attack him on a personal level in a “CBS Mornings” interview that aired on Tuesday.
She claimed that Thomas had “been a person of grievance for as long” as she had known him. She warned with the overturning of the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that “women are going to die.”
“[Thomas] may be on his own, but he is signaling, as he often did, you know — 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, and he has signaled in the past to lower courts, to state legislatures, ‘Find cases, pass laws, get them up. I may not win the first, the second or the third time, but we’re going to keep at it,’” Clinton explained.
Host Gayle King asked, “So you’re saying people pay attention to it?”
“Yes,” Hillary Clinton replied. “The people he is speaking to, which are the, you know, right-wing, very conservative judges and justices and state legislatures. … There are so many things about it that are deeply distressing, but women are going to die, Gayle. Women will die.”
It’s a pro-abortion myth that thousands of women were dying before Roe v. Wade was passed. In 1972, the year before Roe was decided, 24 women died from legal abortions, and 39 died from illegal abortions according to CDC data.
Democrats lie to push their agenda.
Governor Ron DeSantis’ (R-FL) Deputy Press Secretary Bryan Griffin blasted Clinton’s statement, calling her description of the justice “offensive, disgusting, and false.”
“Offensive, disgusting, and false commentary from @HillaryClinton about Clarence Thomas. I’d like to directly rebut this,” Griffin tweeted. “After I passed the bar, I stopped CT 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 SC 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,” Griffin continued, adding a photo of Thomas swearing in the young lawyer.
Griffin went on to say that in addition to taking an interest in his life, Justice Thomas shared his own experiences.
“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,” Griffin continued, adding, “In my anecdote, 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.
“To lie about the man because you do not agree with him is wrong, and people can plainly see it as desperate attack for cheap likes. CT is neither angry nor resentful, and this is abundantly clear to anyone who has interacted with him in person,” he concluded.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor said that while she disagrees with Thomas on politics he’s the only justice “that literally knows every employee’s name — every one of them. And not only does he know their names, he knows their families’ names and their histories. He’s the first one who will go up to someone when you’re walking with him and say, ‘Is your son okay? How’s your daughter doing in college?’ He’s the first one that when my stepfather died, sent me flowers in Florida. He is a man who cares deeply about the court as an institution, about the people who work there, but about people.”
