Seth Meyers was impressed by the “crazy” writings of a Supreme Court justice’s wife to former President Donald Trump’s team during his crusade to overturn the 2020 election.
The House panel investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol said Thursday that it had requested an interview with Ginni Thomas, wife of Clarence Thomas.
This follows revelations on Wednesday that the committee is in possession of emails between Ginni Thomas and attorney John Eastman, a key adviser in Trump’s effort to overturn the election results.
Previously revealed text messages showed that Ginni Thomas had repeatedly contacted then White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows with false and bizarre allegations about voter fraud in November 2020, including one in which she alleged a co-op group. conspirators, including the “Biden crime family”. elected officials, “social media censorship dealers” and others were being arrested and detained and would soon be “living on barges outside GITMO [Guantanamo Bay detention camp] face military tribunals for sedition.”
To Meyers, this sounded even crazier than MyPillow CEO and notorious electoral conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell.
“These texts make Mike Lindell seem like a sensible businessman,” Meyers joked on “Late Night.”
“I know all these texts sound insane to you. But it’s important to remember. They really are insane,” he said.
“I think my favorite part is when she says that the Biden crime family and electoral fraud co-conspirators will be living on barges from Gitmo. Obviously, all these things are crazy, but I’m curious about one thing. Why would they live on a barge off rhythm? Like, why wouldn’t they be sent to Gitmo?”
