On Wednesday evening, 85-year-old liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell, fracturing three ribs, requiring her to be rushed to the hospital Thursday morning.
The Supreme Court issued a statement, explaining that “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell in her office at the Court last evening. She went home, but after experiencing discomfort overnight, went to George Washington University Hospital early morning.”
“Tests showed that [Ginsburg] fractured three ribs on her left side, and she was admitted for observation and treatment,” said the Court, adding, “Updates will be provided as they become available.”

Reports of panic among liberals quickly came in, as the possibility of President Trump acquiring another SCOTUS nomination appeared likely, and many on the left began offering their own body parts to keep Justice Ginsburg on the Court.
Ginsburg, who remains one of the last left-leaning Justices on the Supreme Court, has previously suffered from broken ribs in 2012, but despite liberals’ fears, the 85-year-old has earned a reputation for resilience due to her quick recovery from past medical issues.
Just heard on Los Angeles radio liberals are calling Ruth Bader Ginsburg hospital offering to donate their ribs and organs to make sure she stays healthy and remains at the SCOTUS.Loading...
Sorry, but that is kinda psycho.

Hollywood actress and left-wing activist Alyssa Milano and several others took to social media to offer lungs, ribs, kidneys, and other organs to preserve Justice Ginsburg.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg can have my ribs. And my kidneys and a lung. And anything else she needs. She can even have my husband on Thursdays.

I try to donate blood a few times per year, but right now, I feel like it’s very important to donate ribs, specifically to octogenarian Supreme Court Justices. How do I coordinate that? #longliveRBG #RibsForRuth
