Disgraced Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly on Friday responded to news that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had had surgery -- by mentioning that it would be harmful to his political opponents.
"Justice Ginsburg is very ill," O'Reilly tweeted. "Another Justice appointment inevitable and soon. Bad news for the left."

Earlier in the day, news broke that Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous nodes from her lung -- and that the surgery had been successful.
“Currently, no further treatment is planned," a statement from the Supreme Court read. "Justice Ginsburg is resting comfortably and is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days. Updates will be provided as they become available."
O'Reilly was fired from Fox News in April 2017 after multiple sexual harassment allegations were made against him.
