Prepare for the general meltdown of those on the left.
For those on the left, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an icon, the justice they most want to keep on the court.
When she is in ill health as she frequently has been of late, many virtue signal and even talk about offering up their organs if it will help preserve her position on the court.
Harvest my organs for RBG.

I will donate all my ribs to RBG, any internal organs she needs too.

I want to publicly state I am available to give RBG any organs she might need to live to 150.

It’s almost a tad cult-like.
So some were really befuddled and upset today with what Ginsburg did in issuing a temporary stay until next week, preventing Democrats from getting President Donald Trump’s financial records from Deutsche Bank.

From The Hill:
The court’s order came just hours after the president’s legal team asked for a temporary stay of an appellate court decision ordering Deutsche Bank to comply with subpoenas from the House Financial Services and Intelligence Committees for a broad range of documents concerning Trump’s finances and his businesses.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who oversees the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, issued an administrative stay of that court’s decision that will be in effect until Dec. 13 while the court deliberates on whether to grant a longer stay and to give Trump’s lawyers time to prepare a formal appeal.
Wow I would of never thought RBG would even consider this, kinda bursts my bubble of her. 😥

So much for hero worship.

Nooooooo RBG why?

In before “she’s a Russian asset.”
Now this isn’t the final decision yet, it’s a stay until next week. But it does indicate they are taking Trump’s claim seriously.
