UPDATE: RBG’s First Public Appearance Since Surgery Marred by Controversy

The reasoning for the lack of photos was reinforced later by another mainstream source.

[UPDATE:  Today, February 15th marks the return of Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court.]

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made her first public appearance this week after enduring a surgical procedure to remove cancer back in December…or did she?

There is some odd confusion buzzing about the media today, as RBG’s supposed involvement in an event honoring her in song provided exactly no images of the aging Judicial and pop culture icon. In fact, even more mysteriously, tweets regarding her appearance at the event have been scrubbed from Twitter as well.

Attendees at the Notorious RBG in Song described Ginsburg as “glam,” and “resplendent,” and “magnificent,” but you’ll have to take their word for it.

In an era when every person is carrying a camera and isn’t afraid to use it, there wasn’t a single snap of the 85-year-old to be found. Every media story that covered her alleged appearance used file photos.

“What a delight to see RBG tonight at ‘Notorious RBG in Song,’ written & beautifully performed by her daughter-in-law, Patrice Michaels,” Post contributor David Hagedorn posted to Twitter. “She sat in the back, a few rows behind us, looking resplendent. Being hugged & wished a happy birthday by her made a grand night spectacular.”

Hagedorn’s tweet has since disappeared.

The reasoning for the lack of photos was reinforced later:

Post reporter Robert Barnes set the scene:

Ginsburg did not speak, and many in the crowd did not know she was there. She sat in the back, and most saw her only as they left the performance. Michaels did not announce her presence.

Several other reporters and legal insiders claimed to have spotted Ginsburg, who apparently looked spectacular just weeks after undergoing serious lung cancer surgery. Ginsburg underwent a pulmonary lobectomy on Dec. 21 to remove cancerous nodules in her left lung, a procedure that comes with up to eight weeks of recovery. Ginsburg missed a round of oral arguments in January, though she’s continued to vote on cases and participate in setting the docket from home, the Post reports.

Ginsburg’s procedure caused her to miss oral arguments for the first time in her long career as a Supreme Court Justice.

Maxine Waters Makes It Clear: If You Stand With President Trump You Are NOT Patriotic

Talk about out of touch!

On Easter Sunday, California Democrat Maxine Waters appeared on Joy-Ann Reid’s MSNBC show. She made it abundantly clear. If you stand with President Trump, you are not a proud American patriot. Because that makes sense, right? Maxine noted, “One of the things you have to think about is this; who are the patriots? Who will stand up for America when our obvious enemy is basically hacking into our electoral systems? Who is going to stand up for America and claim to be a patriot when they see that there are many people around this president who have interacted with those from Russia, from the Kremlin, and with Putin? Where are they coming from? And I think when you ask yourself this question, you’d better be concerned about whether or not these are real patriots or whether or not they’re in the pockets of the president of the United States wishing to gain favor from the president and they’re going to stand up for him no matter what.” Waters added, “And so I call out their patriotism at this point this time. You take a look at this report, and you will be shocked at the information that’s unfolding.” Oh, Max, Max, Max. Enough is enough! This is just irritating. …In other Maxine news, check out this flashback during the recent government shutdown… Maxine Waters is financially loaded. And yet, during a time when government workers are seeing their paychecks withheld due to the Democrat shutdown, Waters has no problem flying first class. Talk about out of touch!

WHOA! Comedian Who Plays President On TV Just WON Ukrainian Presidential Election

WHAT IN THE WORLD!?

Published

That headline sounds like a joke. It wreaks of “fake news.” One might even consider it “clickbait.” And yet, it is 100% true. A comedian who plays the president on a TV show will now become the next president of Ukraine in real life. Volodymyr Zelenskiy defeated incumbent President Petro Poroshenko by a landslide based on an exit poll released after voting stations closed, according to multiple reports. Zelenskiy, a 41-year-old who has never held public office, received 73.2 percent of the nationwide vote, while Poroshenko only received 25.3 percent. If the poll results are correct, Zelenskiy, who won nearly twice as many votes as Poroshenko in the first-round election held last month, will become president in a clear rebuke of the incumbent’s leadership. Is that wild or what? Soon-to-be former President Petro Poroshenko is facing multiple allegations of corruption. All we hear about from the left is Russia, Russia, Russia. And yet, years later, there is still zero proof the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. However, the evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign continues to mount. Now, this… From The Hill: Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton. The leak of the so-called “black ledger” files to U.S. media prompted Manafort’s resignation from the Trump campaign and gave rise to one of the key allegations in the Russia collusion probe that has dogged Trump for the last two and a half years. Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko’s probe was prompted by a Ukrainian parliamentarian’s release of a…
