Daily Mail Calls Justice Clarence Thomas ‘It’ in Hit Piece

Daily Mail

On a day that marked the first time in 10 years that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas uttered a single word from the bench, the British-based tabloid Daily Mail mocked Thomas’s rare inquest in a vile headline: “IT SPEAKS! Justice Clarence Thomas asks a question in court for the first time in 10 YEARS in gun case .”

Associate Justice Thomas questioned a government lawyer in a case to determine whether those guilty of committing domestic violence can lawfully have their Constitutional right to possess firearms restricted.

Thomas asked the lawyer to list an instance when a “misdemeanor violation suspends a Constitutional right.”

In a Tweet from the Daily Mail official Twitter account, the tabloid took on a much more respectful tone.
