Twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has issued a scathing attack against Clarence Thomas, describing the Supreme Court justice as a “person of grievance” who is filled with “resentment” and “anger.”
The pot called the kettle black during a Tuesday rant on CBS News while responding to the SCOTUS overturning Roe v. Wade last week.
During her remarks, Clinton falsely claimed the Supreme Court’s justices are “against women’s constitutional rights” and alleged, without evidence, that “women will die” because of the ruling.
“I think that was the goal of packing the Court with justices who were on the record for many years of being against women’s constitutional rights to make decisions about our own bodies,” Hillary claimed.
“I was deeply sorry that it actually happened..
“But now that it has happened, I think everybody understands that this is not necessarily the only effort that we’re going to see this Court undertake to turn back the clock on civil rights.
“I went to law school with Justice Thomas.
“He’s been a person of grievance for as long as I have known him — resentment, grievance, anger.
“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.’
“The thing that is, well, there are so many things about it that are deeply distressing but women are going to die.
“Women are going to die, Gayle,” Clinton alleged.
“Women will die.”
Hillary Clinton: “I went to law school with Justice Thomas. He’s been a person of grievance for as long as I can remember… grievance, resentment, anger.”

Hillary wasn’t the only Democrat to throw a temper tantrum over SCOTUS, however.
Celebrity Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called for the impeachment of Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett on NBC’s Meet The Press
While laying out her case for impeachment, AOC also made several false allegations about the court and its justices, again without any evidence.
Host Chuck Todd said, “Do you think the House Judiciary Committee should begin the process of an investigation there.”
AOC said: “If we allow supreme court nominees to lie under or under oath and secure lifetime appointments to the highest court of the land and then issue, without basis, if you read these opinions, issue without basis, rulings that deeply undermine the human and civil rights of the majority of Americans we must see that through.
“There must be consequences for such a deeply stabilizing action and hostile takeover of our democratic institutions.
“To allow that to stand is to allow it to happen.
“And what makes it particularly dangerous is that it sends a blaring signal to all future nominees that they can now lie to duly elected members of the United States Senate in order to secure Supreme Court confirmations.
Chuck Todd: “Do you think lying at a confirmation hearing is an impeachable offense?”
AOC: “I believe so.
“I believe so.
“I believe lying under oath is an impeachable offense.
“I believe that violating federal law and not disclosing income from political organizations as Clarence Thomas did years ago is also potentially an impeachable offense.
“I believe that that not recusing from cases that one clearly has family members involved in with very deep violations of conflict of interest are also impeachable offenses.
“And I believe that this is something that should be very seriously considered including by members by senators like Joe Manchin and Susan Collins.”

“resentment, grievance, anger” was Hillary’s entire campaign theme. https://t.co/UiOioTviIQ
