The last thing Democrats want to deal with in 2020 is a vacancy on the Supreme Court.
Now every Democrat is fearing the worst.
And that’s because Democrats were left stunned after this bad news about Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
Late Tuesday night, a bombshell came across the Associated Press wire, liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg was in the hospital suffering from a gallbladder infection.
The Associated Press reports, “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Tuesday with an infection caused by a gallstone, the Supreme Court said. The 87-year-old justice underwent non-surgical treatment for what the court described as acute cholecystitis, a benign gall bladder condition, at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. She expects to be in the hospital for a day or two, the court said.”
This is not the first time liberals held their breath as Ginsberg sat in a hospital recovering.
In 2018, doctors discovered lesions on her lungs while treating her for broken ribs.
This led to Ginsberg missing weeks of Supreme Court oral arguments.
And more recently Ginsberg underwent radiation treatment for her past bouts with pancreatic cancer.
Now liberals are worried that Ginsberg is in a hospital during the coronavirus pandemic.
Democrats do not want Ginsberg to step away from the court due to health concerns in an election year.
Republicans will swiftly confirm a conservative replacement – the likely nominee would be Seventh Circuit Court Appeals Justice Amy Coney Barrett – which would give conservatives a six to three majority on the Supreme Court.
That is the Left’s nightmare scenario.
And every time a story flashes about Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s health Democrats begin to fear the worst.
