Worst Reactions to Ruth Bader Ginsburg Cancer Scare
One of the biggest obsessions on both sides of the political aisle is the Supreme Court. Everyone wants the justices on the other side to ride off into the sunset to be replaced with one of their own. Seeing as people with an "R" after their name are running the show right now, this leaves leftists in a state of perpetual panic. If a left-leaning judge so much as stubs their toe on a coffee table, lefties are at DEFCON 2.
Take today's unfortunate development for example:
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had surgery Friday to remove two malignant growths in her left lung, the Supreme Court said.
It is the 85-year-old Ginsburg’s third bout with cancer since joining the court in 1993.
Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York found “no evidence of any remaining disease” and scans taken before the surgery showed no cancerous growths elsewhere in her body, the court said in a statement. No additional treatment is currently planned, the court said.
The good news is they expect Ruthie to recover. Nevertheless, there were a metric crap-ton of reactions to this news, each more ridiculous than the last. Behold:
@AP awww. I hope its not too far advanced, she may have to retire. Thus opening up a Supreme Court seat, that… https://t.co/1UGMwlDw6W— Septimber (@Septimber)1545413031.0
Yeah, it's good to know this twit has her priorities in order. The Donald could get a third Supreme Court pick. That, and that alone, is why Ruth Ginsburg must survive.

Notice the trend here? There seems to be no genuine concern for Ginsburg's wellbeing. These lefties only care about her value as a political chess piece. If "the Notorious RBG" wasn't such a key player in the resistance, these lefties wouldn't give one rat's fart about her.

Just to show you we're not deaf to douchebaggery on the right, here's the same jacked-up argument in reverse. Like Bill O'Reilly:
Justice Ginsburg is very ill. Another Justice appointment inevitable and soon. Bad news for the left.— Bill O'Reilly (@Bill O'Reilly)1545415381.0
Seeing as Darth Bader lines up on the "other side," her life has no value to some. This, my friends, is why we often refer to politics as a giant cesspool of suckage.
"Oh my God! The thought of Ginsburg stepping down and Trump appointing another more constitutionalist justice to replace her is the stuff nightmares are made of. The government functioning as intended is just too much to bear." Give me a break.
@AP I HAVE 2 GOOD LUNGS RBG CAN HAVE 1 OF THEM— LJ (@LJ)1545413003.0
Ah, the nuttiest nut-bar posts of them all. Lefty cultists offering up their vital organs like sacrificial lambs for Ruth. Willing to part with the living to keep the dream of high taxes and limited personal freedoms alive.
Something tells me these totally selfless angels would renege long before their melodramatic asses ever got near an operating room.
The donation of lungs is a thing, by the way:
Do you need lungs RBG take my lungs I don’t need lungs PLEASE TAKE MY LUNGS https://t.co/cTamqHaHKB— Patti Murin (@Patti Murin)1545413486.0
Unlike the douche-a-sauruses in the tweets above, I would like to wish Justice Ginsburg a swift recovery. No caveats. No ulterior motives. Just one human being wishing another human being well. End of story.
