Ruth Bader Ginsburg Says Ribs Are 'Almost Repaired' As She Manages To Complete Full Workout Routine For First Time Since Fall

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has offered some reassurance to supporters concerned about her health, saying on Saturday that her ribs are "almost repaired" after cracking three of them in a November fall at her office.

Ginsburg addressed concerns over her health at a sold-out event held in her honor at the Museum of the City of New York, CNN reported.

Asked how her health is, Bader Ginsburg said "it's fine, thank you," adding that her ribs are "almost repaired."

Ginsburg also said that as of Friday, she was able to do her entire workout routine with her personal trainer for the first time since her November 7th fall.

The 85-year-old has made headlines with her strenuous workout routine, which late show host Stephen Colbert once struggled to complete with the Supreme Court justice.

Despite cracking three ribs in November, Bader Ginsburg returned to work and exercise just days after the incident.

The Supreme Court justice, who has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, has not missed a single day of oral arguments in her 25 years on the court, showing up even after cracking two ribs in 2012 and surviving two cancer diagnoses.

Many supporters have expressed concerns over Bader Ginsburg's health, particularly now that the Supreme Court already has a five-justice conservative majority with the recent appointment of Brett Kavanaugh.

After RBG, as the justice is known to some fans, suffered her fall last momth, many supporters jokingly offered to donate their own ribs to the Supreme Court justice, in a bid to ensure that she is able to serve the remaining five years she has vowed to see out.

In July, Bader Ginsburg said she planned to remain on the Supreme Court for "at least five more years."

In recent years, the Supreme Court justice has gained pop icon status, with merchandise, including shirts and tote bags, going up for sale with her image and the words "Notorious RBG," another nickname given to the 85-year-old.

RBG has also taken to carrying a bag emblazoned with the words "I dissent," sending a clear statement about her stance as the leader of the Supreme Court's liberal minority.

Bader-Ginsburg's life and work has also become the subject of a documentary produced by CNN and a Hollywood film called On the Basis of Sex, centered around her early career as a lawyer, during which she became known for her fight against gender discrimation.
