Hillary Clinton isn’t known for her pleasant personality.
And ever since her shocking loss to Donald Trump, she’s gotten downright nasty.
But Hillary Clinton was dumbstruck after a top DeSantis staffer unloaded on her with these three words.
There are many political observers who believe Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss to Donald Trump broke something inside her.
And there is no doubt she was shocked that she wasn’t handed the Presidency on a silver platter.
The bitterness and anger was impossible to hide on election night that November in 2016.
And by most accounts it’s still the overriding factor in her life.
That may be why she decided to attack Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas with a scathing assault recently.
In an interview with CBS Mornings host Gayle King, responding to questions about Thomas’ opinion in the recently overturned abortion cases Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, Clinton angrily claimed Thomas had always been “a person of grievance for as long as I have known him, resentment, grievance, anger.”
And she also repeated the tired old left-wing lie that “Women are going to die, Gayle, women will die.”
This didn’t sit well with Governor Ron DeSantis’ Deputy Press Secretary Bryan Griffin.
He quickly rebuked the embittered failed Presidential candidates over her attack on Justice Thomas, calling her assessment of the justice “offensive, disgusting, and false.”
Griffin criticized Clinton in a hard-hitting Tweet, saying that his own personal experience with Thomas flew directly in the face of the claims Clinton made.
“Offensive, disgusting, and false commentary from @HillaryClinton about Clarence Thomas. I’d like to directly rebut this,” Griffin tweeted. “After I passed the bar, I stopped CT in a lobby in D.C. and asked him if he would do me the honor of swearing me in as a lawyer (2015).”
“He invited me to his office at the SC the next day, (after work) and spent hours with me in conversation, earnestly affording me his time and encouraging me. A friend and a law professor accompanied me,” Griffin continued, adding a photo of the swearing in ceremony.
But that wasn’t the end of the story.
Griffin went on to explain that in addition to asking about his life, Justice Thomas shared a bit of his own story with the young lawyer.
“He showed us pictures from his latest vacation with his wife and fondly spoke of the love he has for her. We discussed America, and from everything he said it was clear he loves this country and the people in it,” Griffin continued. “In my anecdote, he did not know me or owe me anything. But he afforded me incredible kindness. I am certain he extends the same to others. He is committed to the Constitution, which is how he came to this and his other decisions.”
“To lie about the man because you do not agree with him is wrong, and people can plainly see it as desperate attack for cheap likes. CT is neither angry nor resentful, and this is abundantly clear to anyone who has interacted with him in person,” he concluded.
Leave it to Team DeSantis to set the record straight, and tell it like it is, about Clarence Thomas – and Hillary Clinton.
