A decent person might think that when Justice Clarence Thomas is hospitalized, it’s a particularly bad time to hound his wife, Ginni.
No such thing. Instead the media has launched the sixth phase of its hate campaign against Ginni Thomas because they’ve discovered… that she has the same views as the vast majority of conservative Republicans.
The same faction and its media allies who insisted that Hunter Biden is a non-issue and that Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct is a non-issue for Hillary keep suggesting that Ginni or Clarence Thomas committed some sort of indefinable misconduct. What it is they can’t quite quantify, but it involves having a political opinion that the Left disapproves of.
Supreme Court spouses were and are usually not discussed. How many people know that departing Justice Stephen Breyer is married to a member of the British aristocracy?
That’s a neat fact, but it doesn’t mean that Breyer is actually working for Queen Elizabeth II.
The last time the media went crazy about a Supreme Court Justice spouse or lack thereof, it was pretty horrible.

Good thing the media erased its own institutional memory of that happening. But the attacks on the Thomas family are much nastier and more cynical. Lefties are once again throwing everything they have in the hopes of getting something to budge. However improbable that might be. But lefties are convinced that if they push hard enough, they’ll get their way. And if often works. Just ask former Justice Stephen Breyer who was bullied into stepping down.
