Ginsburg’s latest cancer scare sparks questions her role in SCOTUS

Ginsburg’s latest cancer scare sparks questions her role in SCOTUS


KEEP ONE THE CASE LOAD AND DETERMINED TO STAY ON THE BENCH. TONIGHT’S NEWS SPARKING NEW QUESTIONS NOT ONLY ABOUT JUSTICE GINSBERG’S HEALTH BUT HER ROLE AND INFLUENCE ON THE NATION’S HIGHEST COURT. LET’S BRING IN THE MEDICAL AND POLITICAL PROGNOSIS. GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US TONIGHT.>>HI, JANUARY SCHON. GREAT TO BE HERE.>>NICE TO BE HERE.>>Shannon: IT WAS A THOROUGH STATEMENT FROM THE COURT SAYING SHE HAD RADIATION THERAPY. BUT MONTHS AGO IN DECEMBER, SHE HAD SURGERY FOR LUNG CANCER. THAT WAS HANDLED. SHE HAD PANCREATIC CANCER BEFORE. YOU HAVEN’T TREATED HER, I KNOW, WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THE LATEST ROUND OF NEWS AND RADIATION FOR CHOICE AND TREATMENT.>>SHANNON, FIRST OF ALL, IT’S LIKELY THIS IS NOT RELATED TO THE PANCREATIC CANCER THAT SHE HAD NINE OR TEN YEARS AGO, IT’S PROBABLY NEW. NUMBER ONE, NUMBER TWO, THE FACT THAT RADIATION IS CHOSEN HERE. IT’S A NEW KIND OF RADIATION FOR THIS KIND OF TUMOR. HIGH INTENSITY KNOWN AS CYBER KNIFE AND IT’S HAVING SOME PROMISING RESULTS. MORE SIDE EFFECTS. THE REASON IT’S CHOSEN IN MY OPINION, IT’S PROBABLY BECAUSE OF THE LOCATION OF THE TUMOR DOESN’T MAKE IT AMENABLE TO SURGERY. YOU USUALLY REMOVE IT BY SURGERY IF YOU CAN. THE BIG KIND OF QUESTION IS WHAT KIND OF PANCREATIC CANCER IS THIS? BECAUSE DEPENDING ON WHAT KIND YOU HAVE, THAT INFLUENCES THE PROGNOSIS. EVEN IF THEY GOT RID OF IT ALL WITH RADIATION, WHICH IS WHAT THEY’RE SAYING, IT HAS A HIGH RECURRENCE RATE. PANCREATIC CANCER TENDS TO COME BACK. IT WILL HAVE TO BE WATCHED EARLY. IT WAS PROBABLY FOUND EARLY BECAUSE THEY’RE SCREENING HER SO CAREFULLY BECAUSE OF THE PRIOR CANCERS. IF IT’S A CERTAIN KIND OF CANCER THAT’S AMENABLE TO TREATMENT, SHE’LL DO BETTER. THAT’S WHAT WE’RE HOPING FOR.>>Shannon: SHE UNDERGOES ROUTINE BLOODWORK AND SCANS. THAT’S HOW THEY FOUND IT SO EARLY AFTER A BIT OF BLOODWORK IN JULY. YOU’LL KEEP UP WITH THAT. SHE’S ONE OF THE BEST MONITORED PEOPLE OUT THERE, SHE’S TOUGH, DETERMINED, A WORKOUT ROUTINE THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY — THEY GO THROUGH IT WITH HER TRAINER, IT’S A JOKE OF HOW MANY PUSH-UPS SHE CAN DO AND EVERYTHING ELSE.>>I’M A BIG BELIEVER IN THAT. BEING A FIGHTER, SOMETHING TOUGH, IT HELPS IN FIGHTING SOMETHING LIKE CANCER. I’VE SEEN IT TIME AND TIME AGAIN.>>Shannon: YOU SAW IT DIDN’T TAKE ANY TIME FOR PEOPLE TO TALK ABOUT THE MAKEUP OF THE COURT. EVENTUALLY, ONE DAY, THEY’RE GOING TO LEAVE THE COURT. BUT DAVID AXLE ROD TWEETING THIS, IF THEY’RE AS GOOD AS THEY CAN BE NEXT YEAR CARRIES THROUGH ONE OF THE EXTRAORDINARY PROMISE TO FILL IT, DESPITE ITS OWN PRECEDENT IN BLOCKING GARLAND, IT WILL TEAR THE COUNTRY APART. NOT LONG AGO BEFORE THE CASE CAME UP, I ASKED THE MAJORITY LEADER ABOUT AN OPENING NEXT YEAR. IF IT HAPPENED IN ANY CASE. HERE’S WHAT HE TOLD ME.>>WE DON’T KNOW IF THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE A VACANCY. WHAT WE DO KNOW FOR SURE IS WE PICK — HE’S PICKED TWO NEW SUPREME COURT JUSTICES AND WE’VE CONFIRMED THEM. WE WILL LEAVE NO WA WE WILL LEAVE NO VACANCY BEHIND.>>Shannon: SHE SAID, SHE’S BEEN PRESSURED BY THE LEFT TO STEP DOWN AND MAKE WAY UNDER A DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT. SHE SAID GETTING SOMEONE LIKE ME CONFIRMED NOW, SHE IMPLIED, WOULD BE NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. SHE’S A RELIABLE PROGRESSIVE VOTE.>>I WISH HER THE BEST. SHE’S GOT A LOT TO DO WITH THE COLLEGIALITY WITH THE COURT. SHE’S GONE OUT OF THE WAY TO PRAISE HER NEW COLLEAGUES, JUSTICE KAVANAUGH AND JUSTICE GORSUCH. I’M NOT GOING TO ENGAGE IN MORBID SPECULATION OF WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. AS FAR AS TEARING THE COUNTRY APART, I THINK WE KNEW WHOER TO THE COUNTRY APART IN THE LAST CONFIRMATION BATTLE. DO WE WANT TO GO THROUGH THAT AGAIN AS A COUNT WITH THE THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION COMING UP? I CERTAINLY HOPE NO. I WISH HER THE BEST. AND SHE’S BEEN EXTRAORDINARY IN THIS EFFORT TO KEEP THE COURT ITSELF AS AN INSTITUTION AWAY FROM PARTISAN POLITICS. I’M SURE YOU HEARD ABOUT AN EVENT IN WASHINGTON LAST MONTH HOSTED BY ONE OF HER FORMER CLERKS. AND HE MADE THE STATEMENT THAT IT’S A SHAME THAT THESE DAYS SUPREME COURT JUSTICES ARE NO LONGER PRIMARILY CHOSEN BECAUSE OF THEIR LEGAL ABILITY OR PERSONAL DECENCY AND SHE IMMEDIATELY SHOT BACK AND SAID JUSTICES GORE SAVIN — GORSUCH AND KAVANAUGH ARE VERY DECENT PEOPLE. I WISH THEM THE BEST.>>Shannon: YOU HEAR THEM TALK ABOUT EACH OTHER IN A COLLEGIATE WAY. THEY DON’T SEE THE IDEOLOGICAL SPLITS. THEY COULDN’T HAVE BEEN MORE DIFFERENT ON THEIR LEGAL PHILOSOPHIES BUT THEY WERE GREAT

  1. The left is trying to keep won't let her die unless a Dem is elected in 2020… then they'll send her off themselves so they can put someone younger in there ASAP.

  2. She's been a solid opponent of my views for a long time. I wish her strength overcoming her health issues since some things are more important than politics.

  3. The physical AND mental health of all of our Supreme Court justices is vital, and it should never be some major secret— especially when these justices get very old. There needs to be a more transparent and PUBLIC system for Americans to know the health of the court, it is extremely important to our government.

  4. Quit praising Ginsburg – Ginsburg brought politics to the supreme court by constantly making arrogant remarks about Trump. The hell with Ginsburg.

  5. Baby boomers are the WORST generation! They will NOT give up their position, power, etc. I'm sooooo sick if these people. She in hospital more than at work. Step down baby boomers.

  6. Not saying I'm EAGERLY anticipating her kicking the bucket…but I've had an unopened bottle of Blanton's and 10 Padrons in my humidor for the last 10 or so months just waiting for a very specific bit of Breaking News. I did just fill my lighter and get out my V cutter…again, just sayin'.

  7. Get the old woman to the home and change her depends, give her a glass of warm milk and her meds and put her to bed. The half dead radiated old zombie has a whole leg in the grave.

  8. Isn't RBG about to the point where Obama said maybe you're better off taking the painkillers instead of having the surgery?

  9. I do not want to be disrespectful but this lady needs to retire the last thing that she needs to do is bring an oxygen tank into the courtroom. She looks pretty much like a Nazca Mummy in Peru.

  10. If there is gonna be a vacancy, just pick another conservative constitutionalist on the SCOTUS, because we can not rely on Roberts anymore

  11. She is on here last leg. Falls asleep in and out of court cus she is ancient. Short amount of time…. fare well old woman and your libral ways. Viva Trump and the real rule of law.

  12. She should do the country a favor head for the light old woman . Do it quickly libral navarvana is what you so much desrve all ready.

  13. She's like an old automobile that's in the repair shop more often than not. Time to trade it in or junk it.

  14. Lets stop idolizing the judge and start asking her to step down to care for her health. No martyrs. And David Axelrod is a fool.

  15. She needs to go should have been gone long ago!!!! The left keeps propping up this senile woman she cannot make good decisions being this feeble need to change the lifetime appt law and cutoff at aged 70

  16. Wish her nothing but good health as a Republican. She is honestly the embodiment of civility in these insane times

  17. Women has more life than a cat if it were anyone of us tax payers Obama Care Cut you off and send you home to die

  18. I believe this is a lot of bull she's probably not alive or in a coma if she was alive we'd see recent pictures of her not pictures made to look like she was in public but you have two pictures are one that two years old

  19. I don't like Ruth because our laws should be based on the Constitution and not politics. She honestly has no business whatsoever being a Supreme Court Justice. Even so I think it's sad that she should be allowed to retire and spend what time she has left with family or those she loves. Rather than quite literally working until she drops dead. I think it's pretty sick and disgusting that Democrats are demanding she not step down.

  20. Lets get her on tv speaking live and answering the the general public asking questions. It’s visible that you people forcefully choke down your reporting on this. 😮🤨

  21. For fucks sake when is america going to modernise and join the rest of the civilised western world, the UK has a supreme Court with around 45 supreme Court judges, other industrialised nations also have large supreme courts. And America has 9 and like the Vatican there is a huge fear if one dies there can be a huge shift in political ideology, ginsburg is old and sick and under no circumstances what so ever can potus appoint another supreme court judge to make things fair y default a democrat supreme Court judge must be appointed to replace her!!!

  22. Listen. At this point, I need proof of life to prove she is still alive. I'm not entirely convinced she is (at the very least) capable of ruling. The cabal is doing everything they can so Trump can't nominate Amy to the SC.

  23. Thank you Ruth, for not retiring during obunghole's 8 years as President,

    when it would have been easy to replace you with another America hating lefty.

    Instead you chose not to retire, but wait for the first female President,

    hillary clinton, to name your replacement. How'd that work out, LMAO.

  24. She's DEAD already. This BS is a joke. Is there no way to officially check that she is alive? Trump needs to demand proof of life.

  25. This country is already split. The Dems did that. And we don't need to keep a fossil on the court just to appease the left. Now I do wish her all the best. But she needs to go take care of herself and let the country heal.

  26. I have great admiration for Justice Ginsburg, though my beliefs are far different from her beliefs. I hope she defeats this illness. She is a very strong lady.

  27. I can't believe she won't step down due to her age and medical condition. I wish the law would change with the time that any of them could be on the supreme court. I would think 25-30 years would be enough.

  28. A historic woman choosing to end her career/life in the disgrace of bitter partisanship and selfishness. She should not be on the bench, her staff has been doing all of her work, she is a lovely woman but I have no respect for her hanging on to a job when she clearly cannot do it.

  29. Remember a couple months ago when fox accidentally put up the graphic saying she was dead? I think the media sliped up and told the truth for once

  30. Justice bryer isnt getting any younger either. Think the two of these left wingers can hold on another 5 years? I dont.

  31. She is vindictive is what she is… will not resign under trump… she knows NOTHING about keeping to the constitution…

  32. This wicked leftist ghoul will never die. These parasitic monsters need to have their crooked claws forced off the levers of power, this dried up, dead inside thing will never retire.

  33. She needs to GO HOME and be done with it. Give her spot to someone who CAN DO the JOB. She needs to take care of herself and forget about her job. Time to move on.

  34. I think i am sick of listening to Ginsburg health. Just kick her off and get someone healthy who can deliver their job well. Her health is taking centerstage instead of her work. She should go with dignity instead of trying to die as a serving Justice. How power can make ppl do shameless stuff.

  35. the reason RBG is so tough is because there are 45 million babies waiting to tear her to shreds once she crosses into the other side.

  36. Has anyone seen any photos of her after this surgery? If I wanted to divert attention from Ginsburg's absence, this is just the kind of cover story I'm come up with. This is a way the Dems can keep her alive until after the 20/20 election. Even if she was dead, it would be hard for Trump to appoint someone now before the election.
