- The Supreme Court is on edge once again, just months after the Kavanaugh confirmation process.
Trump has already appointed two justices in a historically short amount of time, keeping a critical promise to the American people.
Now another justice has had a significant health scare, and it could soon lead to Trump appointing a third—in his first term.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell in her office and fractured three ribs. The 85-year-old liberal justice was admitted to a hospital Thursday.
Ginsburg’s health has been a matter of intense speculation in recent years. The court’s oldest member, Ginsburg has survived multiple bouts with cancer, and in 2014 underwent a procedure to have a stent placed in her right coronary artery.
The Brooklyn-native, one of four liberal justices on the nine-member court, has said she plans to serve on the bench until she is 90, and has hired law clerks through 2020.
This is not Ruth Bader-Ginsburg’s first health problem, but it is probably her most serious one.
If she plans to stay on the court until the age of 90, she clearly wants to wait out President Trump until someone else can replace her on the Supreme Court.
SHARE if you want to see President Trump appoint another conservative justice to the Supreme Court!
Liberals will not want to see her retire, but with her age and her recurring health issues, it may be the best thing for her personally.
If it was my grandmother, I would want her to take it easy after falling regularly and breaking bones. What do you think?
This would give Trump the opportunity to cement a strongly conservative court for decades, overturning the worst liberal overreaches.
And, surprise, surprise! Now he has a bigger Senate majority to approve them.
We truly wish RBG good health, but also hope she decides whether staying on the court is in her best interest with her health concerns.
