There’s a lot of serious issues going on, but during a Supreme Court session there was a moment of levity and it involved a lawyer giving Clarence Thomas a different title:
Seth Waxman, at NCAA argument, call Justice Thomas “Mr. Chief Justice.” Thomas says he appreciates the promotion. Roberts responds that the job isn’t open.

Here’s the audio:
Following a question from #SCOTUS Justice Thomas:
Seth Waxman: "Mr. Chief Justice, the amateurism rules"
Thomas: "Thank you for the promotion by the way."
Waxman: "I'm sorry, but I'm sure you would be terrific at that"
Chief Justice Roberts: "There's no opening, Mr. Waxman." pic.twitter.com/u6AUVYdKtb

Actually a lot of people wouldn’t mind seeing that be the case:
Hopefully it will be Chief Justice Thomas https://t.co/L6ReE4wVgK
