Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas weighed-in on Cory Booker’s overt grandstanding during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing this week; blasting the liberal legislator’s now-infamous “Sparticus” moment.
Thomas was speaking with C-SPAN when he was asked to comment on Booker’s antics during the hearings last week, when the left-wing lawmaker said “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.’”
From last week, Justice Clarence Thomas: "Honorable – if we could use that word about more people who are in public life, people who actually ask the questions at confirmation hearings, instead of 'Spartacus'…"

“Honorable – if we could use that word about more people who are in public life, people who actually ask the questions at confirmation hearings, instead of ‘Spartacus,’” Thomas said to widespread laughter.
“If we could use the word honorable more often, think about the difference it’ll make,” he said. “Then, you’ll have a legacy. We will have left the country in better shape, morally, structurally than we found it.”

“When this process is finished I’m going to release the email about racial profiling. I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate,” said Booker.
“If Sen. Cornyn believes that I’ve violated Senate rules then I openly invite and accept the consequences,” he added.
