JUST IN: Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Miss Supreme Court Arguments For Second Consecutive Week
A Supreme Court spokesperson announced Friday that Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, will miss next week’s Supreme Court arguments.
This marks the second consecutive week Ginsburg will be absent from the bench.
“Her recovery from surgery is on track. Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required,” said spokesperson Kathy Arberg.
Ginsburg was hospitalized following a fall in November where doctors discovered cancerous tumors on her left lung.
The tumors were removed in December and although reports state Ginsburg is ‘cancer free,’ a doctor cautioned we still don’t know what type of cancer Ginsburg had removed.
Dr. Bentivegna, M.D. says the media who have commented on Ginsburg’s health are “underestimating the severity of her illness,” and that “President Trump has a reasonable chance” of replacing Ginsburg in his first term.
Dr. Bentivegna says that since the modules were malignant, the odds are very high that this is stage IV or metastatic cancer (meaning it can spread to other organs).
In the most optimistic scenario, the tumors removed were “primary lung tumors” meaning her prognosis could be “excellent” wrote the doctor in a blog post.
Dr. Bentivegna, who wished Ginsburg a speedy recovery and long life, also said that the doctors and the media who have commented on Ginsburg’s health are “underestimating the severity of her illness.”
Sources are saying Ginsburg is preparing to step down and the White House is bracing for impact as well.
The Trump White House is quietly planning her imminent departure and “is taking the temperature on possible short-list candidates, reaching out to key stakeholders, and just making sure that people are informed on the process, reported Politico.
Dr. Sebastian Gorka said Thursday night that Ginsburg is preparing to step down from the Supreme Court. Are you ready for what will ensue?
