Roy Wood Jr. Takes Down Clarence Thomas At White House Correspondents’ Dinner

May 1, 2023








The Daily Show” correspondent Roy Wood Jr. joked that billionaire Harlan Crow took Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on unreported trips around the world “like an Instagram model” as he roasted him over his ties to the GOP megadonor at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on Saturday.

Wood ripped on Thomas as he emphasized that billionaires like Crow “always come up with something new to buy.”

“This man bought a Supreme Court justice. 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,” joked Wood.

“We can all see Clarence Thomas but he belongs to billionaire Harlan Crow. And that’s what an NFT is,” he added.

Wood, much like President Joe Biden in his earlier remarks, also took a jab at Tucker Carlson in the aftermath of his surprise exit from Fox News.

The comedian made light of “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah’s exit last year, as he assured Fox News staffers they weren’t alone.

“The untouchable Tucker Carlson is out of a job, some people celebrate it but to Tucker’s staff, I want you to know that I know what you’re feeling. I work at ‘The Daily Show’ so I, too, have been blindsided by the sudden departure of a host of a fake news program,” Wood quipped.

Wood didn’t hold back jokes at the expense of Biden, either.

He poked fun at the president after Biden closed his speech with a reference to the “Dark Brandon” meme.

“Y’all, give it up for Dark Brandon. Thank you, I’m happy to be here. Real quick, Mr. President, I think you left some of your classified documents up here,” joked Wood. (YahooNews/Huffpost)
