‘SNL’ targets Clarence Thomas and wife Ginni Thomas over texting controversy


‘Saturday Night Live’ fired Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife Ginni Thomas following reports that Ginni exchanged text messages with White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, urging him to call off the 2020 election results.

Clarence Thomas, played by “SNL” veteran Kenan Thompson, and Ginni Thomas, played by Kate McKinnon, appear as guests on the morning news show “Fox and Friends.”

The hosts ask Ginni Thomas for her reaction to the left “losing her mind over a few perfectly normal texts” she allegedly sent to Meadows.

“I don’t want any trouble. I take my duty as Yoko Ono of the Supreme Court very seriously. All I want is a tidal wave of biblical revenge to sweep the Biden crime family down to Gitmo and then we unleash the Kraken,” she replies, referring to a phrase associated with theories of the conspiracy around the 2020 elections.

When the hosts ask Thomas if he tells his wife about it, he just laughs and says “Some say yes, some say no.”

Ginni Thomas reportedly exchanged 29 text messages with Meadows in the weeks following Donald Trump’s loss to Democrat Joe Biden, The Washington Post and CBS News reported two weeks ago.

“Help this great president stand firm, Mark!!!” Thomas wrote on Nov. 10, 2020, a post after most media confirmed a Biden victory for president, according to the Post.

“You are the leader, with him, who defends American constitutional governance at the edge of the precipice. Most know that Biden and the left are attempting the biggest heist in our history. »

Thomas never mentions her husband or the Supreme Court in the papers, which were among more than 2,300 given by Meadows to the House Select Committee investigating the riot.

The posts reportedly included his reference to “The Biden crime family” and urged Meadows not to concede Biden’s victory. A last message sent four days after January 6 lamenting what Thomas calls “the end of freedom”.
