‘Wretched woman’: There’s a big bug in Hillary Clinton’s personal story bashing Clarence Thomas

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may claim that she has no interest in a 2024 presidential bid, but her actions prove her to be desperate to remain relevant and Tuesday morning that meant fear-mongering over “angry” Justice Clarence Thomas, complete with a radical conspiracy theory.

Harkening back to their days at Yale Law School, Clinton a graduate from the class of 1973 and Thomas of 1974, Clinton presented herself as the ultimate character witness to host Gayle King on “CBS Mornings.” In a conversation about the overturning of Roe v. Wade that went beyond the majority opinion on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the pair sought to ascribe malicious intent to Thomas’ concurrence.

“I went to law school with him,” Clinton asserted. “He’s been a person of grievance for as long as I’ve 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,” she carried on suggesting the justice was the head of some shadowy cabal seeking to manipulate the justice system – by upholding the Constitution.

“The people he is speaking to, which are the right-wing, very conservative judges and justices and state legislatures – and the thing that – well there are so many things about it that are deeply distressing – but women are going to die, Gayle,” Clinton went on to claim. “Women will die.”

Maybe, since Roe came down the year prior to Thomas’ graduation he was offered a greater education on the actual law than the activist primer that Clinton seemed to have received. That would surely go a long way toward explaining her Monday comment that earned her the award for “dumbest tweet” on the SCOTUS ruling thus far. As for the justice’s character, could the former first lady really possess a greater insight than his current peer, Justice Sonia Sotomayor?”

Prior to the release of the Dobbs decision, Sotomayor had earned herself the rancor of zealots by praising Thomas’ unrivaled care for people, stating, “He is a man who cares deeply about the court as an institution, about the people who work there, but about people.”

“He has a different vision than I do about how to help people and about their responsibilities to help themselves. Justice Thomas believes that every person can pull themselves up by their bootstraps,” she added. “I believe that some people can’t get to their bootstraps without help. They need someone to help them lift their foot up so they can reach those bootstraps. That’s a very different philosophy of life, but I think we share a common understanding about people and kindness towards them.”

It is beyond evident that the attacks against Thomas will continue, not because of, but in spite of the facts surrounding the issue. His concurrence, which earned him no love from Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, seeks not to rewrite the law as justices from the past had done through their judicial activism, but to correct the “demonstrably erroneous” precedents surrounding the substantive due process.

As for Clinton’s claims of Thomas’ grievances, many were more than happy to point her in the direction of the nearest mirror.

According to National Review editor Philip Klein, Clinton wasn’t exactly being truthful about law school with Thomas.

For his part, Thomas has reported enjoying his tenure on the high court and recounted in May having told the media, “I will absolutely leave the court when I do my job as poorly as you do yours,” before later adding, “It really is good to be me.”

Had he known he was going to draw such attention from his former classmate, perhaps he might have offered in response, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
