HUH? Does Mother Jones think this is supposed to make Clarence Thomas look BAD or something?

Mother Jones has quite a scoop on Clarence Thomas:

Roughly 20 percent of the clerks Clarence Thomas has hired since his confirmation in 1991 are either now working as political appointees in the Trump administration or have been appointed by Trump to federal judgeships. https://t.co/69dPduXJLG

Stephanie Mencimer writes:

But the court’s only African-American justice is having an outsize influence in one important sphere: the Trump administration. A new report by the AP’s Mark Sherman indicates that roughly 20 percent of the clerks—a total of 22—Thomas has hired since his confirmation in 1991 are either now working as political appointees in the administration or have been appointed by Trump to federal judgeships.

OK.

Sooooo what?

Is this supposed to be controversial or something?

Because if so, we’re not seeing the controversy.  Like, these people do:

He’s not a judge. He’s a political hack for the Republicans.

So, in other words, they have been very successful.
