The Supreme Court said Friday that 85-year-old Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is home after being released from the hospital. Ginsburg, who is the oldest Supreme Court justice at 85, fell while working in her office Wednesday evening.

"I will literally give 3 ribs to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg if she needs them, along with whichever other body parts she requires until 2020", said activist and WaPo contributor Holly Figueroa O'Reilly.

"I hope she gets better and I hope she serves on the Supreme Court for many, many years", Trump said. "She said something very inappropriate during the campaign, but she apologized for it", Trump said about Ginsburg's recovery on Friday, according to a pool report.

Ginsburg is 85 years old, so obviously we're going to be anxious about her. "For the court, it could be - I don't even want to contemplate that". She escalated her criticism in subsequent media interviews, including calling Trump a "faker".

Ginsburg was hospitalized in Washington after suffering three fractured ribs from a fall.

She underwent colon cancer surgery in 1999, received treatment for early stages of pancreatic cancer in 2009, and had a stent placed in a blocked coronary artery in 2009.

"Where can I donate a rib, or three?" tweeted one Ginsburg fan.

In her absence, the court went ahead Thursday with a courtroom ceremony welcoming new Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who joined the court last month.

Ginsburg was appointed in 1993 by former President Bill Clinton.
