Justice Ginsburg is released from the hospital after breaking three ribs

Justice Ginsburg is released from the hospital after breaking three ribs

Yesterday, we learned that Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized after breaking three ribs in a fall in her office.

Ginsburg returned home Friday after falling Wednesday night in her court office and heading to the hospital Thursday.

Court spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg said Ginsburg, 85, is "doing well and plans to work from home today".

"I will literally give 3 ribs to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg if she needs them, along with whichever other body parts she requires until 2020", said activist and WaPo contributor Holly Figueroa O'Reilly. She said something very inappropriate during the campaign but she apologized for it.

Leftists have placed all their hopes for the Supreme Court onto the shoulders of a frail 85-year-old woman, whose potential death could send them into a panic. I wouldn't say she's exactly on my side.




Through it all, she has never missed Supreme Court arguments. She escalated her criticism in subsequent media interviews, including calling Trump a "faker". But I wish her well.

Upon hearing of Ginsburg's injuries, anxious liberals took to Twitter to volunteer their own ribs to help with her recovery.

In her absence, the court went ahead Thursday with a courtroom ceremony welcoming new Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who joined the court last month.

It was the latest health scare for the oldest member of the Court, who previously battled two forms of cancer and suffered two broken ribs in 2012.
