Clarence Thomas Just Managed To Get Even More Suspicious, Cynically Claims He’s Now Constantly “Looking Over” His Shoulder After Infamous Opinion Draft Leak

You're just telling on yourself at this point, dude.

Controversial Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas just managed to make the entire world look at him with just a little more suspicion, when he publicly spoke out on the infamous Supreme Court Roe V. Wade opinion draft leak and complained that he now has to constantly “look over” his shoulder because all trust is gone.

Recently, the country was left astonished, angry, and absolutely terrified after an opinion draft penned by Justice Samuel Alito was leaked and published by Politico, suggesting that the United States Supreme Court could overturn Roe V. Wade — a landmark decision made in 1973, protecting a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion without undue government interference or restrictions.

But all Clarence Thomas seems to be worried about is how the recent leak has affected his own day-to-day life — calling the disclosure “kind of an infidelity” that has weakened the nation’s trust in the Supreme Court (duh) and has left justices looking at each other with suspicion.

During a recent conference organized by the conservative American Enterprise Institute, the Manhattan Institute and the Hoover Institution, in Dallas, the already scandal-ridden justice declared, “What happened in the court is tremendously bad.”

“Look where we are, where now that trust or that belief is gone forever,” said Thomas, who has already lost the American people’s faith after refusing to recuse himself from cases involving the 2020 election and the infamous Capitol attack after it was revealed that his wife Ginni played a large role in attempting to overthrow the United States presidential election.

“When you lose that trust, especially in the institution that I’m in, it changes the institution fundamentally. You begin to look over your shoulder. It’s like kind of an infidelity that you can explain … but you can’t undo it.”

As it stands, it is still unknown where the leak to Politico earlier this month originated from.

Thomas went on to address the recent protests outside the homes of Conservative Supreme Court justices, claiming that the United States Left has adopted “inappropriate” tactics that he claims the Right would never dream of employing; completely ignoring the fact that it was the Right who literally attacked the nation’s Capitol so violently that people legitimately died, all because they’re sore losers.

“You would never visit Supreme Court justices’ houses when things didn’t go our way,” Thomas ironically insisted. “We didn’t throw temper tantrums. It is incumbent on us to always act appropriately, and not to repay tit for tat.”

He also made the outrageous claim that conservatives have “never trashed a Supreme Court nominee.” We’re pretty much positive that Ketanji Brown Jackson would beg to differ.

Thomas claimed that If someone had said that “one line of one opinion would be leaked by anyone … you would say: ‘That’s impossible. No one would ever do that.’… That was verboten.”

Just a week before Thomas’ hissy fit over the opinion draft leak, the controversial Supreme Court justice effectively got his ass handed to him when he attacked Americans for being “addicted” to getting whatever outcome it is they want and rudely instructed the American people to get over it and simply “live with” any Supreme Court rulings they don’t like or agree with.

As I’m sure you can imagine, he was instantly put on blast by Americans who reminded him that his own wife was evidently unable to “live with” the fact that Donald Trump lost the presidential election and literally tried to wield her power and authority as the spouse of a Supreme Court Justice to overthrow this nation’s long-standing democratic process.

But sure, go off, dude.
