Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has faced longstanding criticism, particularly from the left, including a controversial confirmation hearing in 1991 led by then-Senator Joe Biden.

Thomas humorously pushed back against media criticism, joking about his job performance compared to theirs.

“One of the things I saw in response to the media is when they talk about — especially early on — about the way I did my job, I said, ‘I will absolutely leave the court when I do my job as poorly as you do yours,'” Thomas quipped. “And that was meant as a compliment.”

“Oh, gosh. It really is good to be me,” he joked.

He then called out Democrats’ attack as “a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas.”

“You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate, rather than hung from a tree,” Thomas said.

He has been targeted by leftist groups for conflicts of interest and even received a $1 million offer from John Oliver to retire.

“Justice Thomas, we have a special offer for you tonight,” John Oliver said. “We are prepared to offer you $1 million a year — for the rest of your life — if you leave the Supreme Court immediately, and never come back.”

“This is not a joke!” Oliver said. “A million dollars a year until you, or I, die.”

Thomas remains resilient in the face of criticism, with Senator Mike Lee praising his response as a noteworthy “mic drop” moment.

“This should be nominated for best mic drop of 2024!” Lee wrote on X.
