Few things are discussed more in Washington, D.C. than Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s health.
Her age and failing health have been the topic for years but she continues to sit on the Supreme Court.
But now Ruth Bader Ginsberg was hiding this life-threatening health crisis from the American people.
From horrible falls to bouts with cancer, Ginsburg has had numerous health scares since 2018.
Just this past January, Ginsberg and her allies happily revealed that she was cancer free after fighting pancreatic cancer for years.
And Ginsberg has gleefully claimed that she plans on staying in the Supreme Court till she is 90 years old (2023).
But now, it’s a question if that’s even possible due to her health.
After claiming that she beat cancer, by February Ginsberg’s cancer had returned and she began receiving chemotherapy in May.
And this only became public just recently.
So for four months, Ginsberg was hiding her health crisis from the American people.
NPR’s Nina Totenberg noted, “Ginsburg said she began a course of chemotherapy on May 19 after a periodic scan in February, followed by a biopsy, revealed lesions on her liver. She said her recent hospitalizations to remove gallstones and to treat an infection were unrelated to the recurrence of the cancer.”
Totenberg continued, “this is her fifth bout with cancer in 21 years and the third bout in the last 19 months. Her surgeries and treatments over the years for colon and pancreatic cancer have likely contributed to some of the gut problems, unrelated to her cancer, that pop up from time to time.”
Ginsberg wanted to hide her health issues in hopes they would not become a campaign trail issue in 2020.
Supreme Court vacancies turnout out conservative voters like few other political issues do.
It would be disastrous for Democrats and Joe Biden this November if Ginsberg’s Supreme Court seat became vacant.
And Ginsberg desperately wants Joe Biden to win so she can retire and be assured another radical leftist will take her place.
That’s why Ginsberg and Democrats have hid her health crisis from the American people.
Only time will tell if her seat becomes vacant by November.
