D.C. Whispers shared rumors months earlier of some members of the Supreme Court who were suffering from increasingly poor health. Justice Sotomayor was among those discussed. This week news broke that Sotomayor fell in her home and broke her shoulder.
Though among the youngest on the Court at 63, and appointed by Barack Obama when she was just 57, Sotomayor has appeared to have aged considerably in recent years. She suffers from diabetes and last year was the recipient of a 911 call after losing consciousness at her home.
With this most recent medical malady, the rumors of her declining health are all but confirmed.
It is another reason the many enemies of Donald Trump are so increasingly desperate to destroy his presidency. The prospect of him appointing one or more Supreme Court Justices scares the hell out of them.
