US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is suddenly on the minds of many liberals.
With the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for the US Supreme Court this week, liberals came to the frightening realization that the 83 year-old Ginsburg could give President Donald Trump another seat to fill if she retired – or got sick.

“I’m very interested in this,” Jeanette Bavwidinski, a community organizer in Pennsylvania, said according to SF Gate.
“I’m interested in what her daily regimen is. Like, what are you all feeding RBG? Is she getting enough fresh air? Is she walking? Is she staying low-stress? What is she reading? Is she reading low-stress things?” Bavwidinski inquired.
One of only four women to ever serve on the Supreme Court, the liberal justice has become a kind of mascot and hero to those on the left. Ginsburg was appointed to the bench 23 years ago by President Bill Clinton and is one of four dependably liberal voices on the Court.
With Gorsuch replacing the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in Februray 2016, the number of conservative judges is restored as Justice Anthony M. Kennedy provides the swing vote. If Ginsburg were to vacate her seat during Trump’s administration, liberals know what that could mean.

“I kept thinking, you know, I could organize a bunch of gays,” John Hagner, a Washington consultant for Democratic campaigns, said according to SF Gate. “I could organize the gays, and we would just make a protective circle around her at all times. We could help her get up and down the stairs. We got this.”
“Can she eat more kale?” forest ecologist Kim Landsbergen from Ohio asked. “Eat more kale, that’s all I can say. We love you. Eat more kale.”
The tiny-framed justice, and the oldest member of the Court, has already survived both colon and pancreatic cancer.
“What I’m mostly concerned about is the cancer,” Hagner said. “Is she getting her checkups? Do her doctors realize how important it is for her to get her checkups? Do they? The woman is 98 pounds.”
Liberals are channeling their positive thoughts and energy to Ginsburg in the hopes that she will keep on keeping on.
“I was just talking to a friend about this,” Michael J. McClure, an associate professor of art history at the University of Wisconsin, said.
“Like, what could we do? What could we do to help Ruth Bader Ginsburg? Could we protect her with packing peanuts? Then it turned into, ‘I need to become a vampire. Like in ‘Twilight.’ I need to become a vampire so I can make her a vampire with eternal life.’ If I’m damned to eternal life myself, so be it. It’s a sacrifice worth making,” McClure said, according to SF Gate.

Thankfully for her panicked supporters, Ginsburg made an appearance Wednesday at Virginia Military Institute for a live-streamed Q&A where she was asked about her health.
She told the audience she does situps and “something called a plank.” She also regularly does full push-ups, not the knee variation, and can do about 20. Ginsburg told the crowd that she has a personal trainer who works with Justices Elena Kagan and Stephen G. Breyer as well.
“He does his best to keep us all in shape,” Ginsburg said.
That ought to help liberals breathe a bit easier. Or not.
“I have O-negative blood that she’s welcome to at any time,” Mikayla Thatcher, a lecturer at the University of Michigan, offered. “I feel like this is getting a bit post-apocalyptic – no wait, that’s not the right word. Dystopian. I feel like this is all getting a bit dystopian. But she’s welcome to my O-negative blood at any time.”
Many took to Twitter to weigh in on Ginsburg’s health and their hopes that she may, in fact, be immortal.
I’m showin’ up to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s house every damn mornin’ with a kale smoothie and a shitload of vitamins and whatnot.
