Ruth Bader Ginsburg

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized after breaking 3 ribs during a bad fall in her office at the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

Ginsburg, 85, fractured three ribs on her left side. She was admitted to a hospital for observation.

The court issued a statement on Thursday morning, saying Ms. Ginsburg fell in her office and went home to rest. But she experienced discomfort overnight and went to George Washington University Hospital on Thursday morning.

This is not the first time Ginsburg has broken ribs during a fall. She also broke 2 ribs in June 2012, but did not disclose her injury to the public.

Ginsburg is the oldest justice on the Supreme Court and the second of four women to serve on the court.

Her ongoing health issues are a cause of concern for her supporters who fear that President Trump will soon have another seat to fill on the Supreme Court.

Worried Ginsburg supporters took to social media to offer their ribs and other internal organs to keep her alive until Trump leaves office in 6 years.

In July, President Trump appointed Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. But his confirmation was delayed by the Democrats who claimed Kavanaugh assaulted multiple women while he was a teenager in high school.

Two of the accusers have since walked back their accusations.

    Trump has been waiting for this. He’s salivating. He even said he wished Sotomayer and Ruth would die an early death. Get ready for another Supremes appointment.

  • Li-Wright

    He did express that he wished she and Sotomayer would die an early death. Google it.

    Who pushed you Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg?
    SCOTUS is starting to be a dangerous job!

  • R Smith

    Exactly! Now #45 will get to choose another one…damn!

  • Simone

    She’s a tough old bird who beat cancer twice. May she live to be 120 as a private citizen, not as a SC justice. Have you heard her speak lately? Her speech is slow and inaudible. She can’t even fully hold her head up. It’s time to retire. She’s delaying the inevitable – Trump will appoint a 3rd SC justice.

  • Dun Dilly

    LOL

  • Skylar1

    OMG dummy trump may have another appointment.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Laaaawwwd No!!

  • Vonn

    Get well soon Ruth. She looks like Stephen Hawking in this pic.

  • dontgetblocked

    Bless her heart. She’ll retire soon. Our President will get another conservative on the Court. Yeah!

  • Omandesert

    You wish he’ll be there for six years
