Ruth Bader Ginsburg Released from Hospital
Ginsburg, 86 and a Supreme Court Justice since 1993 (only Clarence Thomas has served longer among current members), is reportedly “doing well” at her home in Washington, D.C. after being taken to the hospital Friday experiencing chills and fever. She spent two nights there. Her symptoms abated after receiving intravenous antibiotics and fluids.
Ginsburg has had four occurrences of cancer, including two in the past year. She had lung cancer surgery in December and received radiation treatment for a tumor on her pancreas in August.
Every instance of Ginsburg’s ill health sends tremors through both the political left and right, because her passing would remove a leftist activist from the Court and leave an opening President Trump would likely fill with a Constitutionalist judge.
