John Oliver Offers Clarence Thomas $1 Million Per Year To Resign

Oliver said:

 Clarence Thomas is arguably the most consequential Justice on the court right now and he’s never really seemed to like the job he said it’s not worth doing for the grief so what if he could keep the luxury perks that he clearly enjoys without having to endure all of that grief well I think there might actually be a way to do that because Justice Thomas we have a special offer for you tonight we are prepared to offer you $1 million a year for the rest of your life if you simply agree to leave the Supreme Court immediately and never come back. It is that simple: just sign this contract, resign, and the money is all yours. This is not a joke. If you watch our show, you know jokes aren’t really our thing. This is real: a million dollars a year until you or I die.

John Oliver Is Making A Point About The Lack Of Rules And Oversight On SCOTUS

John Oliver was making a point that it is legal to try to pay off a Supreme Court Justice to quit, which is exactly why there needs to be more regulation and oversight of the Supreme Court. Oliver could literally buy a Supreme Court seat vacancy if Justice Thomas would take his offer.

The odds are that Justice Thomas is getting more than a million dollars in cash and perks.

However, the fact that Oliver was able to legally make the offer is a big part of the problem with the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court is a threat to democracy in its current lawless condition, and John Oliver is shining a bright light on how easy it is to buy a Supreme Court Justice.
