John Oliver Offers Clarence Thomas $1 Million a Year to Retire from The Supreme Court

John Oliver is ready for Clarence Thomas to “get the f—k off” the Supreme Court of the United States.  During the season premiere of Last Week Tonight, on Sunday (February 18th), the comedian offered Thomas $1 million – annually – to resign.

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,” Oliver said.  “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.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, this seemed like “an honest offer” from the Community actor.

Thomas has admitted to receiving complimentary exotic trips and massive donations and real estate deals from a major Republican Party donor.  Should he recuse himself, at minimum, from certain cases?
