Justice Thomas’s wife Virginia forced to apologize to his clerks

It’s tragic that support for President Trump is considered so unacceptable in some circles that it must be apologized for. For the 73 million Americans who voted for Trump, it’s a sign that elites hate and despise them just as much as they despise Trump.

For some reason, one circle of people demanding an apology for supporting Trump is Justice Clarence Thomas’s law clerks.

Virginia Thomas, wife of the aging conservative stalwart Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, appears to have posted apologies to her husband’s former law clerks for her vociferous support of Trump.

USA Today reports:

Virginia Thomas, a conservative activist and the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, apologized to her husband’s former law clerks for posting a series of messages supporting now-former President Donald Trump.

“I owe you all an apology. I have likely imposed on you my lifetime passions,” Thomas wrote to a group of the justice’s former clerks, according to a copy shared with The Washington Post. “My passions and beliefs are likely shared with the bulk of you, but certainly not all. And sometimes the smallest matters can divide loved ones for too long.”

We don’t know the exact circumstances of Thomas’s apology – was it spontaneous, or was it demanded of her? But it rubs me wrong that Trump supporters feel they can’t hold their beliefs without apology. What do you think?
