Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospitalized After Fracturing Three Ribs

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospitalized After Fracturing Three Ribs”

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized on Thursday after she fell in her office at the court the night before, fracturing three ribs, a court spokeswoman said.

"She went home, but after experiencing discomfort overnight, went to George Washington University Hospital early this morning", the court said in a statement. She also was hospitalized after a bad reaction to medicine in 2009.

Ginsburg was admitted to the hospital for treatment and observation after tests showed she fractured three ribs.

Ginsburg has had a series of health problems. President Donald Trump and new acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker were on hand.

The timing of 85-year-old RBG's fall is ominous, to say the least, if you're on the left. The same thing happened in 2012, when she broke two ribs and then went right back to work the next day despite being in pain.

Justice Ginsburg, a liberal who is the court's senior justice, has served for more than 25 years after being appointed by former President Bill Clinton in 1993.

Ginsburg has grit and determination, and I only wish she applied that to upholding the plain text and original meaning of the Constitution, rather than toward twisting it to fit liberal Progressive pipe dreams.
