According to the Washington Post, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made her first appearance since her cancer surgery a month ago.
She is said to have been in attendance at the National Museum of Women in the Arts’ production of “Notorious RBG in Song,” in Washington. This was the third time Ginsburg has had cancer but this is the first time that she was unable to sit in on cases before the Supreme Court.
She says she spent her time reading the transcripts, but who is she kidding. She decides cases by ideology not by transcripts and the law.
Ginsburg underwent a medical procedure to remove cancerous nodules from her lungs back in December before Christmas. This was the third time she has been treated for cancer. She was diagnosed with colon cancer in 1999, but didn’t miss any official business while undergoing radiation and chemotherapy. A decade later, in 2009, she underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer.
A month before her surgery, the 85-year old Ginsburg fell in her office and suffered three broken ribs. Ginsburg had also fallen and broken two ribs in 2012.
If Ginsburg steps down from the nation’s highest court, it would give President Donald Trump his third opportunity to nominate a Supreme Court justice.
“I hope that she’s healthy … I hope she’s happy … I hope she lives for a long time,” Trump said of Ginsburg recently, in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller.
Nominated by former President Bill Clinton, Ginsburg has served on the court since August 1993.
Cheer up. She will have to step down before Trump leaves office in 2025.
