Justice Clarence Thomas Has Just Been Hospitalized

Justice Clarence Thomas is reported to be in the hospital in Washington D.C. after suffering an infection with flu-like symptoms.



The Supreme Court of the United States made the announcement on Sunday.

“Justice Clarence Thomas was admitted to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington D.C., on Friday evening after experiencing flu-like symptoms,” the statement read, as reported by The Economist’s Steve Mazie.

“He underwent tests, was diagnosed with an infection, and is being treated with intravenous antibiotics,” the statement continued. “His symptoms are abating, he is resting comfortably, and he expected 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,” the statement added.

Clarence Thomas has been the target of viotriol on the radical left for standing up for the U.S. Constitution. His obstruction of the progressive agenda has led to calls for his impeachment and the New Yorker even openly wished that it wasn’t the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg who died, but Justice Clarence Thomas.

“As reports of a United States Supreme Court Justice retiring spread on Wednesday, millions of Americans were bummed that it wasn’t Clarence Thomas,” the New Yorker reported.

“In interviews across the country, Americans revealed that their momentary elation was followed by deep disappointment when they learned that a jurist other than Thomas was departing the bench.” the New Yorker added.

But Clarence Thomas is much too stubborn and fierce a judicial warrior to give up without a fight to the end. Godspeed to the Supreme Court Justice on his immediate and full recovery.

This is breaking news. It will be updated as more information is forthcoming.
