Hillary Clinton on Tuesday spoke of Justice Clarence Thomas as a person of grievance in her first interview since Roe v Wade was overturned.
Gayle King, anchor of CBS Mornings, asked Hillary about Thomas’s comments in the decision that overturned legal abortion in the U.S.
Thomas’s concurring opinion said that the court should reconsider other rights such as contraception and same-sex marriage.
Hillary said she’d gone to law school with Thomas, and she’d always known him to be a “person of grievance… Resentment, grievance, anger,” and gave a stark warning about the consequences of his efforts.
“He has signaled in the past to lower courts, to state legislatures to find cases, pass laws, get them up,” Clinton said, adding Thomas’s message to conservative judicial activists has been “I may not get them the first, the second, or the third time, but we’re going to keep at it.”
