Watch: AOC Has Big Impeachment Dreams- What A Laugh!
When it comes to political grifting, few do it better than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Appearing on The Daily Show Monday, the congresswoman and temp host Jordan Klepper discussed their favorite topic - Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Their conversation was more of a rant than an actual discussion. As part of a voiceover, Klepper declared Thomas and his friend, Harlan Crow, were “national embarrassments.”
Klepper asked AOC if she would “draft articles of impeachment” for Thomas - despite the fact she had no evidence of wrongdoing. AOC responded that, while Thomas is required by law to disclose gifts, “quid pro quo is this bar that doesn't even need to be met.”
But what about the allegations of Nazi-related memorabilia? AOC tried to deflect, saying, “This is the distraction of that whole issue.”
Klepper then sarcastically asked, “Can't billionaires have friends?” AOC responded that the justices should not be receiving money from people and if they want to live “that kind of lifestyle, then they can resign from the Court. They can retire.”
It's clear what AOC and her liberal allies are trying to do - remove Thomas from the Supreme Court. Why? It's simple. Thomas is not a reliable liberal vote. He has consistently voted against progressive policies such as abortion rights. So, rather than deal with Thomas and his views, the left is trying to take him down through baseless attacks and conspiracy theories about Nazi memorabilia.
By trying to impeach or remove Thomas from the Supreme Court, AOC and the left are not only making a mockery of the justice system, they're also showing that they don't respect the rule of law. We should all be outraged at their attempts to use Thomas as a political pawn and stand up for the rule of law.
