BREAKING: Justice Ginsburg Expected to Miss Trump’s SOTU Address

According to breaking new reports, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will miss the State of the Union Address which President Trump has planned for Tuesday evening.

The 85-year-old Justice has experienced several bouts of health-related issues in recent months, causing her health to become a major focal point for Democrats and the mainstream media.

A surgery to remove cancerous nodes in her lung, which was preceded by a bad fall, have left Democrats terrified that the aging Ginsburg may retire – a move which would put Trump in the position of appointing another Justice.

Ginsburg, who remains one of the Court’s most liberal Justices, has been an outspoken critic of President Trump, and while she did attend former President Obama’s addresses, she infamously fell asleep in a 2015 speech.

From The Hill:

Justice Ruth Bader is among the five Supreme Court justices who are expected to skip President Trump’s State of the Union Address Tuesday night.

The Supreme Court’s Public Information Office said it expects only Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Elena Kagan, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to attend the proceedings in the House chamber.

Ginsburg has been closely watched since a Dec. 21 surgery to remove cancerous nodules from her lower left lung forced her to miss oral arguments last month, but the 85-year-old’s expected absence from the annual event likely isn’t health related.

Ginsburg attended each of Obama’s addresses and even made headlines for dozing off during his remarks in 2015. She admitted later that she had shared some wine with her colleagues ahead of the event and was not “100 percent sober.”

The court’s leading liberal did not attend Trump’s joint address to Congress in 2017 nor his first official State of the Union last year. That absence, however, was due to prior speaking engagements in Rhode Island, according to multiple media reports.

Ginsburg caught fire in 2016 for making disparaging remarks about Trump during his 2016 run for the presidency. In an interview with the New York Times, she joked that she would have to move to New Zealand if he were elected.

Trump responded by calling for her to resign, claiming her mind is shot.
