Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in the hospital after falling in her office and liberal Twitter has lost its mind.
She is considered one of the most important impediments to President Trump’s potentially illegal directives. The idea of Trump replacing her on the bench with another staunch religious right conservative is horrifying.
Ginsburg, 85, is a progressive champion on the bench and beloved by many. She’s known by her nickname “Notorious RBG” for her inability to suffer foolishness and sharp wit.
According to a brief press release issued by the Court, Ginsburg fell in her office and “after experiencing discomfort overnight,” she went to the hospital today. The justice fractured three ribs according to the release and was “admitted for observation and treatment.”
Her fans, however, have taken to social media to express their dismay and send well wishes.
holy fucking shit can we just wrap Ruth Bader Ginsburg in bubble wrap and carry her around in a sedan chair for the next two or more years because she is currently our country's most precious natural resource

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Breaks her ribs at 85 & returns home, ready to continue to serve her nation
Trump gets an imaginary "bone spur" and runs away from his nation faster than the women whom he allegedly sexually assaulted ran from him.
Justice Ginsburg is an American treasure.

BREAKING: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell last night and fractured 3 ribs. She remained hospitalized. Best wishes this amazing woman.
I can't imagine what would happen to this country if she were to step down and be replaced by yet another Trump appointee.
GET WELL SOON!
