Ruth Bader Ginsburg Assures Audience She Has a Pulse, ‘I Am Alive and On My Way to Being Very Well’ (VIDEO)
It’s not a good sign when you have to assure the audience that you have a pulse.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 86, said on Saturday that she is “alive” and on her way to “being very well” after her latest cancer treatment for a “malignant” tumor found on her pancreas.
“This audience can see that I am alive and I’m on my way to being very well,” Ginsburg said at the annual National Book Festival in DC.
"This audience can see I am alive. And I am on my way to being very well."

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 86, underwent three weeks of radiation treatment for a “localized malignant tumor” found on her pancreas on July 31st.
The US Supreme Court disclosed last Friday that Ginsburg received treatment this summer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
The treatment included the insertion of a stent in Ginsburg’s bile duct, according to a statement by the court.
Ginsburg in December of 2018 also had surgery to remove cancer from her left lung.
According to doctors, further tests have shown that the disease has not spread throughout her body, however a “bile duct stent” is a treatment typically used in advanced cases to provide end of life care.
Ginsburg looks very feeble and after two cancer scares in one year, she should respectfully resign from her position as a Supreme Court Justice.
