Actress Offers Injured Ginsburg ‘Kidneys and a Lung and Anything Else She Needs’

Outspoken leftist Alyssa Milano shared support for the justice

Actress Alyssa Milano (shown above right) is not too happy about 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s recent fall that landed her in the hospital with three fractured ribs.

“Ruth Bader Ginsberg can have my ribs. And my kidneys and a lung. And anything else she needs. She can even have my husband on Thursdays,” the “Charmed” star wrote in response to the news of Ginsburg’s injuries on Thursday.

“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell in her office at the Court last evening. She went home, but after experiencing discomfort overnight, went to George Washington University Hospital earlier this morning,” a public statement from the Supreme Court said about the incident.

“Tests showed that she fractured three ribs on her left side and she was admitted for observation and treatment.”

Because of her injuries, Ginsburg was not present for a welcoming ceremony for new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday. President Donald Trump attended the ceremony for his pick to the Supreme Court.

Ginsburg has had a handful of health issues in her later years. She broke two ribs in a 2012 fall, had a stent implanted to open a blocked artery, and was hospitalized due to a back reaction to medicine in 2009.

She has also struggled with cancer twice.

Despite her health issues, Ginsburg has hired clerks through 2020 — which means she has no plans on retiring anytime soon.

Ginsburg has become quite beloved by Hollywood figures under the Trump presidency.

An acclaimed documentary — titled “RBG” — was released over the summer and a scripted feature about her life will be headed to theaters soon.

“On the Basis of Sex” will be hitting cinemas on December 25 of this year; it stars Felicity Jones (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “The Theory of Everything”) as Ginsburg.

The movie also stars Armie Hammer (“The Lone Ranger,” “Call Me By Your Name”) and Justin Theroux (“The Leftovers,” “The Spy Who Dumped Me”). The biopic is directed by Mimi Leder (“Deep Impact,” “The Peacemaker”).

Milano has become increasingly political in recent years.

She previously drove people — literally — to the polls to vote in the midterms, and she suggested people fundraise for their political parties instead of trick or treating this Halloween.

The actress was also one of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s fiercest critics when he was accused of sexual misconduct by several women. An FBI investigation could not corroborate any of the accusations against him. Kavanaugh fiercely defended his good name and denied all of the allegations lobbed at him.
