Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has always been the worst, but now, he’s even more confident letting his freak flag fly because he knows nothing is going to happen to him.

By now, you might have heard about the Alito’s Virginia home displaying an upside-down American flag—an insurrectionist symbol after the January 6 attack on the Capitol, and their flying another, an “Appeal to Heaven” flag, at their beach home in New Jersey.

As Imani says in this week’s episode, “everything about this story stinks.”
