One weird sign that Donald Trump might lose in 2020 is that the probably very hooked-in Ruth Bader Ginsburg believes he’ll lose in 2020. If she didn’t believe that, she would quit.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave a public health update at the National Book Festival in Washington D.C. Saturday amid recent reports that she was treated for pancreatic cancer, telling the crowd that she is alive and “on my way to being very well” following her latest cancer treatment.
The 86-year-old justice reportedly started radiation therapy at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City earlier this month – August 5 – but told the crowd that she is well on her way to health.
According to the court’s statement, “there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body.”
“Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans. No further treatment is needed at this time,” the statement added:

“For one thing, I love my job,” Ginsburg told the excited crowd on Saturday. “It’s the best and the hardest job I’ve ever had. It has kept me going through four cancer bouts. Instead of concentrating on my aches and pains, I just know that I have to read this set of briefs.”
Ginsburg has struggled with her health in recent years.
There’s zero chance this zombie kike can make it to 2024.
And she would just give this up if she thought she was going to have to make it that far.
This is an interesting data point.
