Trump White House Urging Allies to Prepare For Possible Departure of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Who May Resign from Court to Train Full-Time for the 2020 Olympics

This is the fittest woman in the world. Why would she retire?

The White House is reaching out to political allies and conservative activist groups to prepare for an ailing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's possible death or departure from the Supreme Court-- an event that would trigger the second bitter confirmation battle of President Donald Trumpís tenure.


The White House "is taking the temperature on possible short-list candidates, reaching out to key stakeholders, and just making sure that people are informed on the process," said a source familiar with those conversations, who spoke on background given the delicate nature of the subject. "They're doing it very quietly, of course, because the idea is not to be opportunistic, but just to be prepared so we aren't caught flat-footed."

An Informed and Trusted Source tells me this story is #FakeNews. The tale that's told to me is that yes, routine preparations are being made, but routine preparations are always being made, and this means next to nothing. No one is being "urged" to prepare.

And that this narrative is being hyped up to get clicks from panicked NPCs.

Politico is also filled with NPCs, but NPCs have no morals, and will gladly gaslight other NPCs for the extra penny-a-click they get.

And I guess they also want clicks from gloating PCs like us.

I take the claim that this is mostly #FakeNews to be true. And I know I published a story about this recently but this is another one it has PsyOps value, if nothing else.

I don't mind panicking NPCs myself. And yeah, I wish it weren't #FakeNews. But that's what I'm told.

This past week the adherents of the Party of Science (TM) were all in a Twitter Frenzy promising to devote one day or one week of their own lives to transfer to Ruth Bader GAINZZZburg. The math worked -- if you have thousands of people devoting weeks or months of their life to one person, that one person will live a long time.

Here's what didn't work: Everything. It's stupid. Why even talk about it? Only people who low-key believe in Witchcraft and Binding Spells would even talk so stupidly.

But Party of Science (TM).

And also: What if we all each agreed to energy drain one level from Ruth Bader GAINZZZburg to give it to ourselves, 1st Edition Monster Manual style? We'd give ourselves bonus hit dice.

Hey, why not? The math works. We could reduce her to a 0-level NPC.
