Mia Farrow decides Justice Clarence Thomas must resign, now. You can’t make this stuff up.

Liberal actress Mia Farrow has not only joined the rest of the Hollywood left in supporting Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers, she has now taken things a step further.

Just hours before a story by her son, Ronan Farrow, was published in The New Yorker detailing accusations by  Deborah Ramirez that the Supreme Court nominee exposed himself to her at college dorm party decades ago, the 73-year-old called for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to resign.

Thomas, the longest serving justice, has served on the high court since 1991 when he was nominated by former President George H. W. Bush. In a tweet on Sunday, Farrow declared the 70-year-old Thomas “has no business on the Supreme Court.”

The jab at Thomas likely referred to sexual misconduct allegations made against him by Anita Hill, who had worked for him at the Department of Education. Thomas denied the accusations and, following Hill’s testimony, was confirmed with a narrow majority vote.

But having Farrow, who was in a long-term relationship with filmmaker Woody Allen before he cheated on her with one of Farrow’s adopted daughters, is hardly the voice of support Kavanaugh’s detractors could use right now. With questions swirling about the credibility of the allegations brought by Ford and Ramirez – who admitted that there were “significant gaps” in her memory because she was drunk at the time of the incident – Farrow’s attack on Thomas raised a lot of backlash on Twitter.
