Ruth Bader Ginsburg Forced to Miss SCOTUS Legal Arguments After Falling Ill Yet Again

Ginsburg has had two cancer scares in the past year.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is sick yet again. She missed legal arguments today due to supposed “stomach bug” that rendered her ill.

Chief Justice John Roberts made the announcement that RBG was “indisposed due to illness.” Her illness forced her to miss courtroom arguments for two cases.

RBG’s health has taken a turn for the worse over the past year, as she has undergone two cancer scares and suffered broken ribs from a fall. She is the oldest judge on the SCOTUS right now at the age of 86, and liberals fear that her waning condition will allow President Donald Trump to replace her with a strong conservative.

RBG has had four separate bouts with cancer, with the most recent coming over the summer when she was treated with radiation over a three-week period:

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is suffering from pancreatic cancer and finished treatment for a tumor that was found in her pancreas last month, the Supreme Court announced in an official statement earlier today.

“The Justice tolerated treatment well,” Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said in a statement. “She cancelled her annual summer visit to Santa Fe, but has otherwise maintained an active schedule.”

“There is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body,” Arberg added.

The SCOTUS maintains that the 86-year-old woman is in good health despite repeated serious health complications for the liberal-leaning justice who Democrats fear will ultimately be replaced by President Donald Trump, giving the high court a conservative majority to rule for generations to come.

“Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans,” Arberg said. “No further treatment is needed at this time.”

Ginsburg had previously been treated for lung cancer late last year, which caused a long public hiatus that resulted in speculation that she had died.

“According to the thoracic surgeon Valerie Rusch, both nodules removed during surgery were found to be malignant on initial pathology evaluation. Post-surgery, there was no evidence of any remaining disease. Scans performed before surgery indicated no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Currently, no further treatment is planned. Justice Ginsburg is resting comfortably and is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days,” the SCOTUS said in a press release from Dec. 2018.

That cancer was discovered after Ginsburg suffered a fall that resulted in several of her ribs being fractured the month before.

Regardless of spin attempts from SCOTUS and the mainstream media, it is clear that Ginsburg’s health is rapidly waning. Perhaps it would be for the best if this feminist icon spent her final days surrounded by loving family rather than on working the bench.

RBG’s persistence may be admirable, but there will come a time when she needs to step down and allow someone new to take her place. She may have envisioned Hillary Clinton or another trailblazing female president naming her successor, but that may not be in the cards for the liberal icon. President Trump very well may get that opportunity, much to her chagrin.

Supreme Court (SCOTUS) Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized yet again after suffering from a fever and the chills.

Ginsburg, 87, is currently holed up in The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Doctors performed a procedure to clean her bile duct stent, and she is expected to stay hospitalized at the facility for a few days.

“The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment,” SCOTUS spokesperson Kathleen Arberg said in a statement.

Big League Politics has reported on Ginsburg’s recent run-ins with cancer, which caused her to miss significant time on the bench just last year:

Ginsburg is steadfastly hanging onto her SCOTUS seat, doggedly refusing to step down despite her many health problems. She has been a massive critic of President Donald Trump since before he was elected to office.

“He is a faker,” Ginsburg said of Trump in 2016. “He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. … How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that.”

“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” she added.

Now that Ginsburg has to live through the reality of a Trump presidency, she desperately wants to hang on to her SCOTUS seat so he will not appoint her successor. With her mounting health concerns, she may not have a choice but to allow President Trump to choose her replacement in the very near future.
