She's Alright

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is reportedly “up and working” in her hospital room after fracturing three ribs in a fall earlier this week.


Reuters reports that news of Ginsburg’s recovery comes from her nephew, who updated the press from the premiere of the Ginsburg biopic, On the Basis of Sex.

“The last I heard she was up and working, of course, because what else would she be doing, and cracking jokes,” her nephew Daniel Stiepleman said. “I can’t promise they were good jokes but they were jokes.”


Ginsburg’s injury coincided with a Supreme Court ceremony welcoming the court’s newest member, Brett Kavanaugh. President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and Melania’s fancy lady-antagonist-in-a-classic-film gloves were in attendance. I’m not suggesting Ginsburg fractured three ribs to avoid them, but who could blame her?

Brent Kavanaugh was shouting and crying ten minutes into his hearing. RBG is 83 years old, broke three ribs and is working and joking from her hospital bed.

Interesting, no?
