May the Fake News Media rest in peace! U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas tore into his numerous critics of the far-left media on Friday, prompting massive laughs from a Dallas audience.

Thomas is no stranger to the liberal media; the Supreme Court justice has been criticized heavily by various pundits on numerous occasions, some might even say viciously attacked.

The Washington Post, for instance, issued a “clarification” back in February after one of their writeups accused Thomas of thinking in a similar manner to a “White conservative.”

Another incident involved MSNBC host Joy Reid repeatedly referring to the justice as “Uncle Clarence” as a pejorative spinoff of the character “Uncle Tom.” Reid’s implication with such an insult was likely that Thomas is somehow subservient to a ‘white master’ of sorts, as is usually the case when leftists hurl such insults at black people who they harbor disdain for. Such an understanding of the name reflects a profound lack of knowledge; “Uncle Tom” was not exactly the historical figure that many in popular culture choose to portray him as.

“I think what scares people is that if [Trump] decides to do something that legally makes no sense… but if they somehow manage to stumble into the Supreme Court, do any of you guys trust Uncle Clarence and Amy Coney Barrett and those guys to actually follow the letter of the law?” she asked.

The leftists running Joy Behar’s infamous show “The View” engaged in similar behavior, suggesting that Justice Thomas’ views on constitutional law prove that he is a race traitor to blacks in America.

“It’s terribly disrespectful to appoint someone like Clarence Thomas with his philosophies to the seat of Thurgood Marshall, a civil rights activist,” sneered The View’s Sunny Hostin.

A recent panel discussion featuring Thomas on Friday showed the Supreme Court justice throwing a punch back at 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. The Supreme Court justice proved to be a riot; former Bush administration official John C. Yoo and the rest of the audience laughed quite a bit following his remarks.

“It really is good to be me—it really is,” joked Thomas with a smile on his face.

Thomas has been more outspoken than usual as of late. The Supreme Court justice recently made headlines after he publicly stated his grave concern for the legitimacy of America’s institutions following the recent SCOTUS draft leak, remarking that he “wonder[s] how long we’re going to have these institutions at the rate we’re undermining them.”
