Owing to their incredible power, Supreme Court Justices are held to a much different standard than other Americans. And obviously, their families are meant to follow suit.
Ginni Thomas, however, has never been shy about her political activism. And that activism grew more extreme as the GOP became the party of Donald Trump. Conservative media outlets have been very quiet about the release of Thomas’ text messages to Trump COS Mark Meadows. Unfortunately for them, ignoring the issue will not make it go away.
During a Friday night segment on HBO’s Real Time, John Heilemann ripped into the Justice’s wife. “The woman has been a crazy — a crazy — right-wing activist for the entire time that her husband has been on the Supreme Court,” the pundit began.
“You read the text messages, Bill, it’s like, who is your nuttiest, most brain-diseased, Trump MAGA following relative. The one who has been brain-addled by syphilis or whatever and they’ve completely gone around the bend and they do all their sh*tposting on Facebook — that’s what her text messages sound like.”
The political commentator also urged Chief Justice John Roberts to, “get serious about this.”
