Donald Trump praised Ginni Thomas at a Saturday rally for continuing to believe his "big lie" about the 2020 presidential election, which he lost to Joe Biden.
Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, testified on Thursday before the House Select Committee Investigating the Jan. 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Following her testimony, Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) told reporters Ginni Thomas still believes the election was stolen. That was confirmed by Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD).
"As we talk about and think of the rigged and stolen of 2020 — presidential election, rigged and stolen — I would like to thank a great woman named Ginni Thomas," Trump said. "Do you know Ginni Thomas? Great woman."
Trump also described her husband as a "great man."
"But she said that she still believes the 2020 election," Trump said. "She didn't wilt under pressure like so many others that are weak people and stupid people, because once they wilt, they end up being a witness for a long time."
Even though Ginni Thomas was incorrect about the election, clinging to his lie earned Trump's praise.
"She said what she thought, she said what she believed in," Trump said. "Too many Republicans are weak and they're afraid and they better get strong fast or you're not going to have a Republican Party and you're not going to have a country anymore."
Trump then introduced MyPillow CEO and prominent election denier Mike Lindell.

National Archives still doesn't have everything as Judge Cannon tries to delay FBI investigation: report
Efforts to obtain government documents from former President Donald Trump's administration have so far failed to reclaim all of the missing documents despite the August FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago.
The National Archives explained the situation in a Sept. 30 letter House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), The Wall Street Journal reported.
“While there is no easy way to establish absolute accountability, we do know that we do not have custody of everything we should,” wrote acting Archivist of the United States Debra Steidel Wall.
The letter was sent as Trump-appointed Judge Aileen Cannon continues to delay and limit the FBI investigation into the missing public records.
"The letter also said that, as appropriate, the National Archives would consult with the Justice Department on whether to initiate action to recover records that may have been removed in potential violation of the Presidential Records Act," The Journal reported. "Still, the National Archives declined to say whether Mr. Trump had turned over all presidential records. Ms. Maloney had pressed Ms. Steidel Wall to obtain a written certification from Mr. Trump that he had surrendered all presidential records or classified materials, hadn’t made any copies, and hadn’t turned the documents over to anyone other than the archives or the Justice Department."
The Archives suggested the Oversight Committee contact the Department of Justice for information on the ongoing criminal investigation.
Maloney blasted Trump in a Saturday statement.
“Former President Trump and his senior staff have shown an utter disregard for the rule of law and our national security by failing to return presidential records as the law requires,” Maloney said. “I will continue to do everything in my power to ensure that all presidential records from the Trump White House are returned to the custody of the government and to make sure these abuses never happen again.”

Watch: MTG calls for imprisoning her political enemies in combative speech at Trump's Michigan rally
Controversial first-term Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene traveled to Michigan to speech at Donald Trump's Saturday rally in Warren.
Speaking for more than twenty minutes, Greene lashed out at her political enemies and painted a dark portrait of a dystopian portrait of a country where Republicans are persecuted and transgender Americans are the "most protected class."
Greene both took the stage to the song "Gladiator" by Zayde Wølf.
"I had to keep on reaching up 'cause it was my time; To tear down the kingdom and call out the liars," Wølf sang. "Spent too much money on a therapist; Couldn't fix me, I accepted it."
Twice the crowd chanted, "lock her up" as Greene attacked Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Greene also called for jailing doctors for gender reassignment surgeries.
She also attacked Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and the governor of California, among others.
"Democrats want Republicans dead and they’ve already started the killing," she said.
As Greene left the stage, Zayde Wølf played again.
"Picked a fight with the gods I'm the giant slayer," he sang. "Bone shaker, dominator;Freight train, wrecking ball, I'm the gladiator."
