Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is out of the hospital, but not back on her feet. quite yet.

"I wouldn't say she's exactly on my side, but I wish her well I hope she gets better and I hope she serves on the Supreme Court for many years", Trump added.

Early the next morning, the justice called Supreme Court police to take her to George Washington University Hospital in Washington. "You think three ribs are going to stop Justice?" This woman is a boss.

Appointed by president Bill Clinton in 1993, Ginsburg rebuffed suggestions from some liberals that she should step down in the first two years of president Barack Obama's second term, when Democrats also controlled the Senate and would have been likely to confirm her successor.

In 2012, she fell and broke two ribs, and in 2009 she was hospitalized after a negative reaction to medication.

Indeed, word today is that she's "up and working" in her hospital room, "because what else would she be doing, and cracking jokes", according to her nephew, who spoke to reporters at the premiere of the RBG biopic On the Basis of Sex last night. "I can't promise they were good jokes but they were jokes".

Despite her health issues, the justice has not missed any work and still continued to exercise regularly. Not that she needs our help with that.
