For days, the news cycle has been filled with reports of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s wife, Ginni Thomas, and her texts to former chief of staff Mark Meadows, texts in which she said that the “Biden crime family” was set to be tried on a barge off the coast of Guantanamo Bay, where they would be held in prison for rigging the 2020 presidential election. Her texts were sent in the weeks leading up to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters who believed the vote was rigged and that Trump had won the election.
As the wife of the justice on the highest court in the land, a court that has already made and will in the future make decisions about the constitutionality of the Jan. 6 investigation and the former president, Donald Trump’s, actions, Thomas’s texts have come under scrutiny in particular because of her husband’s vote against releasing White House records to the committee. Those records included texts from his wife.

Saturday Night Live’s Kenan Thompson and Kate McKinnon played the couple, who appeared on Fox & Friends in the show’s cold open. Mikey Day as Brian Kilmeade asked McKinnon’s Ginni Thomas about those reported texts.
‘Ginni, the left is currently losing their minds over a couple of completely normal texts you sent to your pal Mark Meadows on Jan. 6. Is that right?’
Thomas agreed with that summary of the problem. Her husband was asked about his recent illness before returning to the news of the texts and the fallout from it.
‘Yes and I don’t want any trouble. I take my duty as the Yoko Ono of the Supreme Court very seriously. All I want is a tidal wave of biblical vengeance to wash away the Biden crime family all the way to Gitmo, and then we release the Kraken.’
Twitter had a big reaction to the skit from SNL. Read some of their comments below:
