Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg home from hospital after surgery

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was discharged from the hospital Tuesday after she had surgery to remove cancerous lung nodules last week, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said in a statement Wednesday.

Details: Ginsburg, who is 85 and a two-time cancer survivor, had two malignant growths removed from her left lung. Doctors say there is no evidence of the remaining disease and it did not spread to other parts of her body.

I'll drop this here...

Politico: WHITE HOUSE Trump White House urging allies to prepare for possible RBG departure
The White House is reaching out to political allies and conservative activist groups to prepare for an ailing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s possible death or departure from the Supreme Court — an event that would trigger the second bitter confirmation battle of President Donald Trump’s tenure.

The outreach began after Ginsburg, 85, on Monday missed oral arguments at the court for the first time in her 25 years on the bench. The justice, who was nominated to the court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, announced in late December that she underwent a surgical procedure to remove two cancerous growths from her lungs.

The White House "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," said a source familiar with those conversations, who spoke on background given the delicate nature of the subject. "They're doing it very quietly, of course, because the idea is not to be opportunistic, but just to be prepared so we aren't caught flat-footed."
:snippity:
The White House is urging outside allies to be prepared for another bruising confirmation battle should Ginsberg’s health take a sudden turn for the worse, according to four sources with knowledge of the overtures. Outside groups, led by the Federalist Society and the Judicial Crisis Network, played a leading role in helping to confirm Kavanaugh and, before that, Justice Neil Gorsuch.


To which Trump replied, Fuck the law. I don't give a fuck about the law. I want my fucking money.

Agreed. But after worry on my part, realized Foggy did a 'Zot' on a much more recent post.

Yeah, when I zot a post it isn't there anymore. So clearly I didn't zot neonzx's post.

But mojo's post was seriously offensive. And frankly incoherent.

Whatever. It's gone now.

Yeah, and it exposed a lacuna in the word censor, which has since been addressed. :daydream:

Fox News(of course):
'Fox & Friends' accidentally shows graphic saying Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead
The hosts of “Fox & Friends” on Monday apologized for showing a graphic saying Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead, blaming a control room error.

The graphic, similar to those marking the deaths of other famous figures, briefly showed a photo of Ginsburg and the dates “1933-2019.”

“We need to apologize … A technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of RBG with a date on it,” co-host Steve Doocy said later in the program. “We don’t want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. That was an accident.”

“We apologize, big mistake,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt added.

At least they got the photo of the person right. They're probably pretty happy about that accomplishment.
