In the summer of 2016, as Trump was campaigning for president, Ginsburg told The Associated Press that she did not want to think about the prospect of the Republican winning the presidency over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The 85-year-old justice checked into George Washington University Hospital early Thursday morning after suffering a fall in her office at the Supreme Court the night before.

Ginsburg, who is Jewish, leads the court's liberal wing.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is out of the hospital, but not back on her feet. quite yet.

"The last I heard she was up and working, of course, because what else would she be doing, and cracking jokes", he said. Before the offers had subsided, Ginsburg was already back home, her strength no doubt bolstered by her faithful workouts with Johnson. She also had two bouts with cancer and had a stent implanted to open a blocked artery in 2014.

Since taking office, Trump has appointed two conservative justices to the court, and many more judges to lower federal courts. She also called Trump a "faker", and he called for her to resign. Jimmy Kimmel went as far to caution his viewers during his late-night show on Thursday night that they must "protect" the elderly justice "at all cost" so that she could stay on the Court "another 80 years". As a result, she was forced to miss the formal investiture ceremony for new Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh at the court that morning.
