Left-wing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has reportedly had surgery on one of her lungs to remove cancerous nodules.
According to a press release from the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg is “resting comfortably” at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, New York.
The press release also notes that “no further treatment is planned.”
The announcement is as follows:
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a pulmonary lobectomy today at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Two nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung were discovered incidentally during tests performed at George Washington University Hospital to diagnose and treat rib fractures sustained in a fall on November 7. According to the thoracic surgeon, Valerie W. Rusch, MD, FACS, 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. Updates will be provided as they become available.
“The court is in recess and is not scheduled to reconvene until Jan. 4, when the justices will meet for a private conference. The next oral arguments are scheduled for Jan. 7,” CNBC wrote on Friday.
Naturally, liberals are losing their minds over the chance that Ginsburg could pass away as a result of this surgery or the condition that sparked it.
This is a very serious operation and expecially if she has broken ribs from a fall. And she is 85 and proned to falls. I don't want to hear one single lie about how well she is doing. She is not and anyone that has parents in the 80's knows it. I do wish her a recovery.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the only thing keeping the Republic from falling into the sea. I just can’t.

I'm an atheist but this just made me pray to the Flying Spaghetti Monster for the first time in a long time. Please hold on, Justice Ginsburg!!!!
