Two-time presidential loser Hillary Clinton bashed Justice Clarence Thomas Tuesday, blaming him for the Supreme Court’s recent abortion ruling which she claimed would kill women.
Interviewed on “CBS Mornings,” Clinton admitted she and Thomas were former Yale law school alums, then proceeded to attack him personally claiming she remembered him being a “person of grievance.”
“He’s signaling, as he often did,” Clinton told host Gayle King when asked about Thomas’ opinion the court should revisit decisions on gay marriage and contraception.

She went on to claim, “You know, I went to law school with [Justice Thomas]. 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,” Clinton stated, claiming he was directing his “signaling” at right-wing lawmakers.
The former secretary of state under Obama went on to claim the court’s recent decision overturning Roe v. Wade and possible future decisions would lead to women dying.
“There are so many things about it that are deeply distressing, but women are going to die, Gayle. Women will die,” Clinton claimed.
Contrast Clinton’s purported memory of Thomas and her vindictive sentiment toward him with statements from fellow liberal SCOTUS Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who earlier this month praised Thomas’ humanity and decency.

“I suspect that I have disagreed with him more than any other Justice…and yet, Justice Thomas is the one Justice in the building that literally knows every employee’s name. Every one of them. And not only does he know their names, he remembers their families’ names and histories. He’s the first one to go up to someone when you’re walking with him and say, ‘Is your son okay? How is your daughter doing in college?’ He’s the first one that, when my stepfather died, sent me flowers in Florida,” Sotomayor said.
“He is a man who cares deeply about the [Supreme] 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. I’ve often said to people Justice Thomas believes that every person can pull themselves up by their bootstraps. 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,” she continued. “That’s a very philosophy of life, but I think we share a common understanding about people and kindness towards them. That’s why I can be friends with him and still continue our daily battle over our difference of opinion on cases.”
Justice Thomas is being targeted by the left after his opinion in the Roe v. Wade ruling indicated the court could revisit previous decisions he believes may have been unconstitutional.
“In a sane world, Hillary Clinton would be pouring Clarence Thomas a hot coffee at a highway truck stop somewhere in Arkansas,” notes Revolver.News.
