‘Notorious R.B.G.’ Meets Real Life R.B.G.

In a weird life imitates art moment, Shana Knizhnik, creator of the viral “Notorious R.B.G.” Tumblr, met with Ruth Bader Ginsburg yesterday.

Here’s what the Supreme Court justice, who recently underwent heart surgery, had to say to her many, many fans:

Me: How are you feeling? It’s amazing you’re back at work so quickly.
RBG: Well I have a stress test tomorrow. I’m not allowed to work out with my trainer until after that… .
Me: Is there a message you’d like to give your fans?
RBG: Let them know I’ll be back doing pushups next week.
