Justice Clarence Thomas

BREAKING: Justice Clarence Thomas HOSPITALIZED with flu-like symptoms

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been admitted to the hospital and the official statement is that he has an “infection,” which couldn’t be less specific. They say he is suffering “flu-like” symptoms.

The official word is that his symptoms are abating under treatment with antibiotics and that he should be back on duty in a few days.

Still, I can’t think of a worse time for him to get sick, not that any time is a good time. But it would definitely be better for America and, by extension, the world if Justice Thomas was around and un-retired until the next Republican is in office.

Judging by how things are going for Biden, that won’t be all that long of a wait.

Here’s the Supreme Court statement:

Justice Clarence Thomas was admitted to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., on Friday evening after experiencing flu-like symptoms. He underwent tests, was diagnosed with an infection, and is being treated with intravenous antibiotics. His symptoms are abating, he is resting comfortably, and he expects to be released from the hospital in a day or two. Justice Thomas will participate in the consideration and discussion of any cases for which he is not present on the basis of the briefs, transcripts, and audio of the oral arguments.

Get well soon, sir. We need you more than ever.
