CNN This Morning presented viewers on Tuesday with the breaking news that Florida Governor and presidential candidate Ron DeSantis was friends with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and that they first met three years ago at the 2020 Federalist Society Dinner. They also found it scandalous that DeSantis praised Thomas on stage, while introducing him.

CNN hosts Poppy Harlow and Phil Mattingly repeatedly referred to this news (or perhaps history) as fascinating. They also took issue with Federalist Society co-chairman Lenard Leo, who Introduced the men and had a private dinner with them.

 “So, we have really fascinating new details from our colleague Joan Biskupic reporting this morning about how a very wealthy conservative activist may have helped Florida Governor Ron DeSantis seal a tight relationship with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas,” Harlow said. “Three years ago, at Disney World, at an event for the Florida chapter of the conservative group the Federalist Society, Governor DeSantis had this to say about Justice Thomas.”
