Judge Clarence Thomas has inadvertently found himself in the middle of a major conspiracy theory, thanks to his wife Ginni Thomas. On March 24, it was revealed that Ginni had sent more than two dozen text messages to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to lobby for the 2020 presidential election results to be overturned. The revelation has now left netizens wondering – what did the judge know?
The scandal has only worsened since the Supreme Court confirmed that Thomas had been hospitalized since March 18. The court did not say why or where Thomas was being treated, but simply noted that he had “flu-like symptoms”. The George HW Bush appointee has long been seen as a major stumbling block for liberal activists, who have been calling him retired for months now.

These calls have only increased in the aftermath of the revelation of the connection between Ginni and Meadows. To make matters worse, it has also spawned a conspiracy theory about Thomas’ health, as netizens wonder if there’s a reason he was hospitalized days before the texts were revealed.
Is Clarence Thomas really sick?
On March 20, the SCOTUS confirmed that Thomas was being treated, but never acknowledged what the problem was or where he was being treated. Four days later, the Washington Post reported that Ginni had sent 29 texts to Meadows over the course of a few weeks following the 2020 presidential election results. “Help this great president stand firm, Mark!!” she texted on Nov. 10, just one example that was revealed by The Post.
The texts were among more than 2,000 Meadows provided to the January 6 select committee, but were not made public until March 24. Ginni and her husband did not respond to requests for comment from the press, which further adds to the mystery. In a previous post, however, Ginni tried to protect her husband from his activism, writing, “Clarence doesn’t discuss his work with me, and I don’t involve him in my work.”
However, the internet just couldn’t believe the judge had no knowledge of his wife’s activism. The revelation led to the internet commenting on things like “The timing of Clarence Thomas’ hospital visit is highly suspicious given recent explosive reporting” and “Maybe that’s why Clarence Thomas is in hospital. He got wind of the Jan 6 Committee having text messages between Ginni Thomas and Mark Meadows and was just fed up.” Another user noted, “Complete coincidence that Clarence Thomas was the ONLY non-voter on the January 6th WH communications post.”

Maybe that’s why Clarence Thomas is in the hospital. He got wind that the January 6 Committee had been texting between Ginni Thomas and Mark Meadows and was just fed up.

“Clarence Thomas must be investigated immediately,” Brian Tyler Cohen’s “No Lie” show tweeted. Another person said: ‘The Supreme Court should absolutely reveal if Clarence Thomas is still in hospital. Of course the public has a right to know…the Supreme Court is missing arguments.’ A third tweeted, “Clarence Thomas is ill. He will resign from the Court for health reasons in the hope that an investigation into him and his wife will cease. It won’t work. That’s my view.” One user asked, “Is the Supreme Court not answering questions about Clarence Thomas due to health issues or legal issues?”

The Supreme Court should absolutely reveal if Clarence Thomas is still in the hospital. Of course, the public has a right to know…the Supreme Court’s arguments are missing.

Clarence Thomas is ill. He will resign from the Court for health reasons in the hope that an investigation into him and his wife will cease. It won’t work. It’s my point of view.

The theory has only gained traction since the court declined to release an update on Thomas’ health since his initial confirmation that he was ill. That means we have no idea if he’s really sick or not, but it looks like the internet has already determined he isn’t.
