Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Thursday after falling in her office; fracturing three ribs on her left side and requiring immediate medical attention.
According to Fox News, the 85-year-old judge initially went home after falling in her Supreme Court offices but was later taken to George Washington University hospital after experiencing “discomfort.”
“Ginsburg has survived a series of health scares. She broke two ribs in a fall in 2012, has had two prior bouts with cancer and had a stent implanted to open a blocked artery in 2014,” writes Fox.

IT WAS THAT BAD: Even Justice Ginsburg Says Kavanaugh Hearings Were ‘WRONG’ for America
Liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg weighed-in Wednesday on Brett Kavanaugh’s wild confirmation hearings; saying the current partisan antics were “wrong” for the country.
Ginsburg was speaking at the George Washington University in Washington, DC this week when she was asked to comment on Kavanaugh’s confirmation process, simply saying “the way it is, is wrong.”
“The way it was, was right,” said Ginsburg. “The way it is, is wrong. The atmosphere in ’93 was truly bipartisan.”
Ginsburg was confirmed by the US Senate in 1993 by a bipartisan vote of 96-3 despite widespread concerns regarding her 10 year career on the ACLU board.
MACHO MADNESS: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Blames CLINTON LOSS on Trump’s ‘MACHO’ Attitude
US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg doubled-down on previous comments she made last year, telling a Women’s Conference over the weekend that she had “no doubt” that Trump’s sexist and “macho” attitude cost Clinton the 2016 presidential election.
Ginsburg was speaking at New York’s Columbia University on Sunday when she was asked to “clarify” remarks she made during the general election last fall, where she claimed misogyny was a “major factor” in Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat to Donald Trump.
“I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized,” Ginsburg told the crowd.
“I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer it the same way I did: Yes, sexism played a prominent part,” she added.
Then-candidate Trump called-out Ginsburg for her comments last July, saying “Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot – resign!”
