According to a Court spokesperson (via CNN's Manu Raju), Ginsburg has fractured three ribs in the fall.

Supreme Court Justice hospitalized after a fall at her office in Washington. Ever the tough lady she is, Ginsburg didn't admit herself to the George Washington University Hospital until Thursday morning after experiencing discomfort overnight, where she learned that she had actually fractured three of her ribs.

The Republican president was scheduled to go to the court on Thursday for a formal ceremony seating Kavanaugh.

In other words, this isn't Ginsburg's first rodeo, and it sounds like she has a decent shot at bouncing back. She broke two ribs in a fall in 2012.

CNN's Jim Acosta denied entry to White House
However, as noted by Acosta and many others, the people travelling within the "caravan" are still hundreds of miles from the U.S. Mr Acosta asked the president about his reference to migrants travelling towards America as an "invasion".


Since taking office, President Donald Trump has appointed two conservative justices to the court, shifting it to the right.

The Supreme Court has never needed the Notorious RBG more than it needs her now.

Ginsburg joined the court in 1993.

"I'm now 85", she said.

Prosecutors say doctors had told Bruns not to drive after she had a previous medical episode while behind the wheel. The killer also told cops afterwards that she had been suffering from the effects of multiple sclerosis.


In the 2018 midterm elections, Republicans won seats in the U.S. Senate, making future Supreme Court confirmation battles easier.

"I will retire when it's time", Ginsburg told NPR's Nina Totenberg in 2016.

There's precedent for her lengthy service, as Justices Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. and John Paul Stevens were both 90 when they retired.

When NBC's Peter Alexander tried to stand up for his peer, Trump turned his ire on him as well. The shocking exchange came as Acosta was asking the president about the migrant caravan.
