It seems liberals will do whatever it takes to keep Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the best shape possible.
Even if it means late night TV show host Stephen Colbert joining the 85-year-old justice as she hits the gym with her personal trainer.
“She has no interest in retiring,” Colbert said as he proclaimed his admiration for Ginsburg. “Just please, hang in there for three to seven more years!”
President Trump’s successful nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for the U.S. Supreme Court soon after taking office last year sparked fear on the left as thoughts of losing liberal justices like Ginsburg loomed.
I'm showin' up to Ruth Bader Ginsburg's house every damn mornin' with a kale smoothie and a shitload of vitamins and whatnot.

Now, there’s a liberal idea if there ever was one.
But Ginsburg, who was appointed by former President Bill Clinton in 1993, is apparently staying in shape as she hung up her robe and donned her “Super Diva” sweatshirt for a workout on Wednesday’s episode of “The Late Show.”
Colbert, who met up with the Brooklyn-born justice at the gym inside the Watergate Apartments in Washington, D.C., was surprised she went to the trouble of working out.
“Which is surprising because if I had a lifetime appointment to a job that let me wear a robe, I would definitely let myself go,” he said.
The late night host asked a round of questions and made plenty of attempts at humor during the session as Ginsberg noted that she normally listens to opera music, even though she was proud to say her nickname — the Notorious R.B.G — is inspired by the famous rapper, Notorious B.I.G.
“I’m cramping and I’m working out with an 85-year-old woman,” Colbert said as he followed the exercise moves.
“How strong are you on the Second Amendment? Because, welcome to the gun show!” he joked, flexing his biceps.
The oldest sitting justice on the Supreme Court, Ginsburg reiterated that she has no plans to retire – much to the relief of liberals everywhere.
