Washington - Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from the hospital Friday after having been admitted for treatment and observation after fracturing three ribs in a fall.

Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said the 85-year-old justice is “doing well” and working from home.

Ginsburg, the Supreme Court’s oldest justice, fell in her office at the court on Wednesday evening and went to George Washington University Hospital in Washington early Thursday after experiencing discomfort overnight, the court said.

On Friday morning, before the Supreme Court announced her release from the hospital, President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House that he had good wishes for the leader of the court’s liberal wing, despite harsh words between them previously.

“I wish her well. She said something very inappropriate during the campaign but she apologized for it. I wouldn’t say she’s exactly on my side. But I wish her well. I hope she gets better and I hope she serves on the Supreme Court for many, many years,” Trump said.

In the summer of 2016, as Trump was campaigning for president, Ginsburg told The Associated Press that she did not want to think about the prospect of the Republican winning the presidency over Democrat Hillary Clinton. She escalated her criticism in subsequent media interviews, including calling Trump a “faker.”

In response, Trump tweeted that Ginsburg was an embarrassment for making “very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot — resign!”

She ultimately apologized, releasing a statement that read: “On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised and I regret making them.”

Ginsburg broke two ribs in a fall in 2012. She also had two bouts with cancer and had a stent implanted to open a blocked artery in 2014.

Trump is a class act, unlike the liberals who wish him death like Madonna and Kathy Griffin he wishes his opponent to feel better. Ginsburg clearly cant function physically OR mentally she MUST resign immediately if she cares about this country.

You are a tool. Even many of Trump's friends and supporters don't think he's a class act. He is most definitely not. Wealthy, successful businessman and politician but not a class act.

Also, what is your evidence that Ginsburg can't function? None/ You are just blathering.

That ain’t no apology, that’s regret for goofing up in not acting like a respectful SCJ in public.

#6, now you see, I very carefully posted my message on Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath in order to prove I am not a Jew. It is silly that people here insist I am a Jew and other people (like Justice Ginsburg) are not.

Your post has gooto be the funniest one . Let me explain this to you yamsar. You are all the same person whether it's yamsar or yonasonw or Paulin . You disparage people under the name yamsar . When you decide to use the name Paulin you choose not to disparage people . But you are the same person . In fact you yamsar is the only one that noticed the one remote post that puslin got thru in Saturday . The only one that would notice it is if you are him .

Guys in case you didn't figure out his funny alias that makes no sense to start with . Paulin is not from Saudi Arbia . He is a fake name by yamsar . ( prob to make believe a goy reads vin . An old fight )

Let's continue to call out Paulin and yamsar bluff . He is a greater trickster than Trump , roger stone etc
