Limbaugh: Ted Cruz's Story Shows Clarence Thomas' Kind Heart

By    |   Wednesday, 01 July 2015 06:14 PM

Rush Limbaugh says that while liberals continue to demonize Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, his true character can be seen in a story in Sen. Ted Cruz's new book.

Cruz once was a clerk for the U.S. Supreme Court, and told the story about Thomas Tuesday night on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File."

Story continues below video.


In his book, "A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Promise of America," GOP presidential hopeful Cruz tells of a young teenage boy who had gotten a chance to visit the court's offices.

Thomas spent two hours talking to the junior high student named Carlos, who, like Thomas, was African American.

Carlos was less impressed with the Supreme Court than he was with Thomas being a Dallas Cowboys fan, Cruz said, including a framed picture he had of himself with quarterback Troy Aikman.

"At the end of two hours, Justice Thomas walked to his desk, and he had on his desk a Super Bowl ticket encased in Lucite that was signed by Emmitt Smith," Cruz said. "He picked it up, he gave it to Carlos. He said, 'Carlos, I'll tell you what. I'm gonna give you this. But I want you to promise me you're gonna get A's in school next year.'"

On his syndicated radio show on Wednesday, Limbaugh played the clip and said the story is indicative of the kind of person Thomas is.

Just like presidential candidate Ben Carson, Thomas is "one of the most decent, finest human beings we have in the country," Limbaugh said. "And yet they're out destroying him, and they've not stopped trying."
