BREAKING NEWS – St. Paul, Minnesota – Former U.S. Senator Al Franken took to Twitter to criticize conservative justices on the U.S. Supreme Court following a majority decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
In a series of tweets, the embattled former Senator-turned-podcast host included a specific criticism of Justice Clarence Thomas, who opined the overturning of the abortion precedent should push his court to review other major cases as well.
“After overturning Roe, Thomas wants to revisit Griswold, Lawrence, & Obergefell. How about revisiting Thomas’ conflicts of interest instead of our rights?” Franken said in a tweet.
The “conflicts of interest” remark was a likely reference to Thomas’ wife Ginni Thomas, who is a conservative activist and is Caucasian.
“First of all, he stole one of our women instead of sticking to his own, and that makes him a thief!” Franken angrily continued. “Was he properly vetted before he was appointed? If he is from the inner city, he shouldn’t be on the bench, because more than likely he has a long and distinguished rap sheet!”
