Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg undergoes more cancer treatment
Just a little over four months, and Trump won’t be able to replace her unless he is re-elected.
I honestly can’t even imagine the monumental level of head exploding that the media will do if this woman passes within the next 6 months.
She should just be a good socialist and take the blue pill like Obie suggested...
That is one tough old bird. I respect that.
Now a short blurb. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has completed a three-week course of radiation therapy for cancer, the top court said in a statement Friday.
The treatment began Aug. 5. Ginsburg has had several bouts of cancer and underwent surgery late last year to remove a growth from her lung.
This story is developing. Please check back for updates.
again?? Idiot lazy ass Grim Reaper..
Obama was a lame duck at the end of his second term.
Trump is neither.
Timing is not good for Trump. Isnt there a senate rule that no hearing held on Supreme Court Justice on election year ?
How can she undergo cancer treatment when she is supposedly dead accordingly to some FReepers? :-)
Ironic that a cancer on America should suffer the same fate.
And everyone knows it.
Eventually they will run out of things to remove.....
Ginsburg, 86, has had several bouts of cancer and underwent surgery late last year to remove a growth from her lung.
No further treatment is needed, according to the court, and Ginsburg tolerated the treatment well.
That woman is the toughest old bird I’ve ever seen. The reaper will catch one day but she has managed to stay one step ahead of him for many years now.
I think people at this level have access to treatments us little people don’t. Probably haven’t even heard of.
The Koch brother who just died confirmed this by saying he managed to live an extra 26 years through technology and treatments when most of us would have lasted only a few years.
It’s not a firm rule, it’s the so-called “Biden Rule,” which is something he announced one day. It’s more of a guideline.
Even if you accept the Biden rule, it doesn’t apply if the Presidency and Senate are held by the same party.
McConnell has already said he would go ahead with an appointment if a vacancy arises.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has just completed three weeks of radiation treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, the U.S. Supreme Court disclosed Friday.
The radiation therapy, conducted on an outpatient basis, began Aug. 5, shortly after a localized cancerous tumor was discovered on Ginsburg’s pancreas. The treatment included the insertion of a stent in Ginsburg’s bile duct, according to a statement issued by the court.
Doctors at Sloan Kettering said further tests showed no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. The treatment comes just months after Ginsburg was operated on for lung cancer last December. The 86-year-old justice has battled cancer in various forms over the last 20 years.
Agreed. Her cancer is certainly on the move (colon -> pancreas -> lung - >pancreas).
