87-year-old liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg caused another panic on the Left.
Ginsberg just suffered another medical scare.
And the octogenarian Justice had everyone asking this question when she went into the hospital.
On Wednesday night, the Supreme Court released a statement revealing that Ginsberg entered the hospital once again for a nonsurgical procedure to fix a bile duct stent that was originally put in place on a previous hospital visit for cancer treatment last year.
“Justice Ginsburg underwent a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure today at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City to revise a bile duct stent that was originally placed at Sloan Kettering in August 2019,” the Supreme Court’s statement on the matter read.
“According to her doctors, stent revisions are common occurrences and the procedure, performed using endoscopy and medical imaging guidance, was done to minimize the risk of future infection. The Justice is resting comfortably and expects to be released from the hospital by the end of the week.”
This is the second time in three weeks Ginsberg’s been in the hospital for some form of cancer treatment.
This news revived the fears on the Left that Ginsberg’s clearly declining health would force her to step down before the election.
If that happened there is no question President Trump and Senate Republicans would quickly move to fill the seat with a conservative successor.
Many in Washington, D.C. believe Ginsberg is just trying to remain on the court through the election in the hopes that Joe Biden wins so Biden can nominate her successor.
But each new bombshell about cancer treatment, a hospital stay and how it affects her health is raising the possibility that Ginsberg’s medical conditions may force her to retire before anyone on the Left is ready.
