Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said Wednesday that he is unaware of how Justice Neil Gorsuch's addition to the high court could have rubbed the other justices the wrong way.

Fox News' Laura Ingraham, a former Thomas law clerk, asked her former boss whether Gorsuch had "ruffled some feathers" in reference to rumors that Gorsuch had sparred with others.

"Well it's good I don't have any feathers, so it's good I'm not a part of that," Thomas said, laughing in response to Ingraham's question about gossip on Gorsuch. "He is a good man and I have no idea what they're talking about."

Thomas recalled reports of the late Justice Antonin Scalia lashing out at the high court and said he knew such reports to be false given the proximity of their chambers.

"People have to say what they have to say, I don't see all those things," Thomas said. "When you're new on the court, you're trying to find your way, it's a lot of work, it's a lot of personal adjustments, you're moving your family, you're getting through the effects of a confirmation, I don't care who that is, and it is an adjustment period. This is not the court of appeals."
