Trump Holds WH Meeting With Far-Right Anti-LGBT Extremist Group Headed By Wife Of Clarence Thomas

The New York Times reports:

President Trump met last week with a delegation of hard-right activists led by Ginni Thomas, the wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, listening quietly as members of the group denounced transgender people and women serving in the military before accusing White House aides of blocking Trump supporters from getting jobs in the administration, according to three people with direct knowledge of the events.

For 60 minutes, Mr. Trump sat, saying little but appearing taken aback, the three people said. It is unusual for the wife of a sitting Supreme Court justice to have such a meeting with the president, and some close to Mr. Trump said it was inappropriate for Ms. Thomas to have asked for a meeting with the head of a different branch of government. Ms. Thomas, whose group, Groundswell, meets weekly, joined others in prayer at the start of the meeting, and some members of the group prayed at different points as the meeting continued.

As I’ve previously reported, Ginni Thomas’s Facebook page is a cornucopia of crackpottery, filled with alt-right memes and nutjob conspiracy claims.

In 2017 Thomas, who writes for the white supremacist Daily Caller, presented an award to notorious video hoaxer James O’Keefe.
