The question “How crazy are liberals in the era of Donald Trump?” just became slightly more difficult to answer.
The president already appointed one new justice to the Supreme Court in the person of Neil Gorsuch, and he currently has another nominee in the works in the person of Bret Kavanaugh.
The confirmation of Kavanaugh will be sufficient to enable Roe v. Wade to be overturned should a case challenging the law come before the high court. This is the reality whether Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is 85, retires or not. Yet some people appear to be willing to lay down their lives to keep the liberal octogenarian alive and (reasonably) well.
is there a way to change my organ donor status to “please give Ruth Bader Ginsburg dibs on these?”

Ruth Bader Ginsburg can have one of my kidneys, I’m not using it

# When Ruth Bader Ginsburg is trending and we all have a heart attack.
Can someone invent a crowdfunding where we donate years off our lifespan instead of money? Put me down for 2.

One fan of the aging judge appears confused about the limits of the human life span:
Ruth Bader Ginsburg: "I have at least five more years on the Supreme Court."
I hope you live forever, RBG.

Some commenters tried appealing to the Trump haters using reason:
This is quite silly. Nature takes it’s course with our bodies and at 85 I am sure she is experiencing forgetfulness. You can try to hide it but it is there. In that job you need all your faculties since it requires deep thought and consideration of our laws.

Ginsburg, herself no Trump fan, has expressed a desire to retain her seat as long as she is able to serve, though whether she can survive another five years as per her wishes is open to speculation. She has already fallen asleep on national TV during two State of the Union addresses, both during Barack Obama’s tenure. She wrote off the second episode, in 2015, claiming she was not “100% sober.”
