U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is "up and working" and making jokes after being hospitalized with rib fractures, her nephew said on Thursday at the premiere of a new movie about her early career fighting for women's equality.

Ginsburg, 85, a critical liberal vote on the high court for 25 years, fell in her office at the Washington, D.C., court building Wednesday.

Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Ginsburg planned to work from home Friday.

"I wouldn't say she's exactly on my side, but I wish her well, I hope she gets better, and hope she serves on the Supreme Court for many, many years", he commented. She has had two prior bouts with cancer and had a stent implanted to open a blocked artery in 2014. "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. "For the court, it could be - I don't even want to contemplate that".

Mind you. RBG is a cancer survivor, she's had a heart procedure and she's had broken ribs before. and she's bounced back so quickly she was never out of the game. As a result, she was forced to miss the formal investiture ceremony for new Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh at the court that morning.
