Supreme Court Justice HOSPITALIZED With Nasty Internal Infection

While US Presidents are sworn to only two terms in office, the lasting impact of their time in the Oval Office can manifest itself in a number of ways, including through their appointment of Supreme Court Justices.

This is perhaps the single most important facet of President Trump’s time at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, with a number of our nation’s top adjudicators growing elderly on his watch.

Of particular note is Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose health has been less than flawless over the last few years.  Today, Ginsburg again found herself in the hospital.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized with an infection caused by a gallstone, the court announced Tuesday, adding that she’s expected to remain in the hospital for a “day or two.”

Ginsburg, 87, underwent non-surgical treatment for acute cholecystitis, a benign gallbladder condition, at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore on Tuesday.

The justice had undergone outpatient tests at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., Monday following oral arguments with the court, which confirmed that she had a gallstone blocking her cystic duct, resulting in an infection.

“The justice is resting comfortably and plans to participate in the oral argument teleconference tomorrow morning remotely from the hospital,” the Supreme Court said in a statement.

Ginsburg has repeatedly stated that she hopes to stay on the bench until she reaches the ripe old age of 90, which would be in the middle of Donald Trump’s second term.
