Late night host John Oliver offered Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas $1 million per year and a luxury tour bus if he retired from the Supreme Court.

Oliver argued Thomas did not seem to enjoy the job and deserved a break from Washington.

He said Thomas made lives demonstrably worse for decades.

Oliver gave Thomas 30 days to accept the offer of $1 million annually plus the tour bus in exchange for signing a contract to leave the Supreme Court permanently.

The remarks were criticized as an attempted bribe by some online.

A clip was also shared of Thomas previously addressing his media critics, saying he would leave the court if he did his job as poorly as the media did theirs, and that coverage of him had gotten mean.

John Oliver said, “One million dollars a year for the rest of your life, if you simply agree to leave the Supreme Court immediately and never come back.”

“Clarence Thomas is arguably the most consequential justice on the court right now, and he’s never really seemed to like the job. He said, ‘It’s not worth doing for the grief.’ So, what if he can keep the luxury perks he clearly enjoys without having to endure all of that grief,” he continued.

“If you watch our show, you know jokes aren’t really our thing. This is real. A million dollars a year until you or I die,” he emphasized.

“The good news is, I think we can help you with that because since your favorite mode of travel might be in need of an upgrade, we are excited to offer you this brand new top-of-the-line cray boat marathon motor coach!” mocked the host.

“So that’s the offer. $1 million a year, Clarence. And a brand new condo on wheels. And all you have to do to return is sign the contract and get the [expletive] off the Supreme Court. Talk it over with your totally best friend in the whole world. Because the clock starts now. Thirty days, Clarence. Let’s do this!” he exclaimed.
