Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in the hospital after falling in her office Wednesday night, the Court announced in a statement on Thursday.Justice Ginsburg suffered broken ribs in a nasty fall yesterday, and hopefully Christians all across America will pray for her recovery. But Ginsburg has not looked well lately, and has become increasingly hunched over and weak looking. No one commented on the wool gloves she wore at the Kavanaugh appointment, as you can see in the photo, but I am thinking she was wearing them for health related reasons.
So this brings up the intriguing notion that if she steps down, and it looks likely that that will happen sooner rather than later, that will give President Trump a third pick for the Supreme Court. If Democrats were smart, and they’re not, they might want to start thinking about working with Trump instead of opposing him.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg hospitalized after fall in her office
FROM USA TODAY: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, went home after the fall but continued to experience “discomfort overnight” and went to George Washington Hospital early Thursday. Tests revealed she fractured three ribs and she “was admitted for observation and treatment,” according to the statement.
Ginsburg, the court’s senior justice, has served on the court for more than 25 years after being appointed by former President Bill Clinton in 1993. She is considered the leader of the liberal wing of the court.
She wrote the first opinion of the Supreme Court’s term this year on age discrimination. Known for her work ethic, the action marked the third consecutive year in which Ginsburg has authored the first opinion of the term. Chief Justice John Roberts has remarked in the past about Ginsburg’s speedy delivery of opinions.
