  • Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, Hospitalized After Fracturing 3 Ribs in Fall

She is a cherished treasure of liberals that sits on the Supreme Court.

Jimmy Kimmel produced a large plastic bubble on his show that he called the "Ruth Bader Gins-Bubble" and said: "We're sending this to Washington to protect Justice Ginsburg from injuries". She went to George Washington University Hospital early Thursday morning after experiencing discomfort overnight.

Updated: Three broken ribs aren't stopping Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg from getting some work done. The supreme court spokeswoman, Kathy Arberg, said she is "doing well", but is already back at work, although working from home.

Ginsburg was released from the hospital on Friday morning, USA Today reports. "I can't promise they were good jokes but they were jokes", he said.

For the next two years, all eyes will be on Ginsburg and her health. She broke two ribs in a fall in 2012. "She also was hospitalized after a bad reaction to medicine in 2009".

"I've known her for many, many years ... got to see her just a few weeks ago here at the swearing-in of Justice Kavanaugh", White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told reporters about Ginsburg's hospitalization.

She was appointed in 1993 by President Bill Clinton as the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court.

If the liberal justice is found to be unable to continue her job, President Donald Trump could appoint a conservative to replace her, tilting the balance of power in the country's top court further to the right.

She is now the oldest judge on the bench but seemingly has no plans to retire, as she has already hired law clerks for the term that extends into 2020.
