Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas roasted the media while taking questions about racial inequality at the Old Parkland Conference in Dallas, Texas on Friday.

Thomas drew a roar of laughs from the audience when he said, “One of the things I say in response to the media… especially early on, about the way I did my job. I said I will absolutely leave the court when I do my job as poor as you yours… and that was meant as a compliment really.”

“It really is good to be me,” he added while laughing hysterically.
