'Paid for his momma’s house': Comedian roasts Clarence Thomas’ alleged corruption at annual DC dinner
Clarence Thomas has gone from being seen as the longest currently-seated U.S. Supreme Court Justice, and its furthest to the right, to being accused of decades-long corruption through his close relationship with a right-wing activist billionaire, and now, ultimately, to being the butt of hard-hitting jokes at a famous annual Washington, D.C. charity dinner.
Saturday night at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, attended by journalists, celebrities, politicians, and even the President of the United States, host Roy Wood Jr. mocked many of the aforementioned notables. None, however, more effectively than the jurist whose actions concealing possibly millions of dollars in lavish, all-expenses-paid luxury vacations, travel, lodging, clothing, and even a real estate gift have led many to demand his resignation or impeachment.
“Anti-CRT policies are an attack on Black history and an attempt to erase the contributions of Black people,” Wood said in the now-viral video (below).
“You are trying to erase Black people, and a lot of Black people wouldn’t mind some of that erasure as long as that Black person is Clarence Thomas,” the comedian continued, as some expressed nervous laughter.

“A billionaire named Harlan Crow is flying Clarence Thomas all over the world on unreported trips like a Instagram [sic] model taking Clarence to the Maldives and the beaches and all – paid for his momma’s house – a billionaire paid for Clarence Thomas momma’s house,” Wood remarked as he pounded the podium.
“I gotta give it up to billionaires, billionaires, boy, y’all, y’all. Y’all always come up with something new to buy. Like just when you think of everything you could buy on Earth, a billionaire will come up with a new thing. Y’all buy space rockets, you bought Twitter. This man bought a Supreme Court justice,” Wood declared, again to some nervous laughter.
“Do you understand how rich you have to be to buy a Supreme – a Black one on top of that. There’s only two in stock, and Harlan Crow owns half the inventory. We can all see Clarence Thomas, but he belongs to billionaire Harlan Crow. And that’s what an NFT is.”
