For anyone who still thinks that the Virginia GOP’s nominee for Attorney General, John Adams, is not an extremist, check out this video (h/t to the Washington Post’s Laura Vozzella for catching this). Check out these Adams’ quotes from the video, taken at a 2016 Tea Party (but of course!) meeting:
1) “The president’s Clean Power Plan is unconstitutional…”
2) “Let’s just take gay marriage…[the Supreme Court’s gay marriage decision is] totally made up, not in the constitution…If you haven’t done it, read Justice Scalia’s and then Justice Thomas’ dissents in that case; it’s an amazing set of dissents.”
3) Some weird, incoherent discussion about “secession” and state “sovereignty”…check it out, but don’t ask me what the heck Adams is getting at here.
4) “I’m an optimist, I clerked for Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court — you give me four more Clarence Thomases and we’re good.” (ee gads)
