Ah, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.). He’s always so angry. When he’s not angry he’s goes on self-righteous rants that fully display his “crazy eyes.” After all, Booker is “Spartacus.” One Supreme Court justice decided it was time to make light of Booker’s egotistical words.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas sat down with the Federalist Society’s Leonard Leo on Wednesday, and Thomas spoke of his hope for a return of being “honorable” in political public life.

“How many people can you use, in leadership positions today, the word that I used about Greg [S. Coleman]?” Thomas asked before expounding. “Honorable. Honorable, not ‘the honorable.’ 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’…”

The audience gave Thomas’ jab at Booker a round of applause before he finished his point.

“If we could use the word ‘honorable’ more often, think about the difference it’ll make,” Thomas said. “Then you’ll have a legacy. We will have left the country in better shape morally, structurally than we found it.”

Thomas’ Spartacus jab at Booker came as a result of the embarrassing display the congressman put on during the SCOTUS confirmation hearing of Brett Kavanaugh where he made the now-infamous “I am Spartacus” line.
