Pete Davidson and Chris Redd did another one of their rap parody videos on Saturday Night Live tonight, performing a song all about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. McKinnon, who has played the Supreme Court justice in “Weekend Update” bits several times before, reprised her impression for the music video.

Ginsburg made news earlier this month after fracturing three ribs in a fall. “You think some broken ribs are going to keep her down?” Redd asked at the beginning of the video. “Hell no, and hell no.”

“Live Ginsburg, and I ride for Ginsburg,” the song’s hook declared. It also included multiple references to Ginsburg’s Brooklyn roots.

A biopic starring Felicity Jones as Ginsberg called On The Basis Of Sex premiered this month, and a documentary about the Supreme Court pioneer’s life called RBG aired on CNN earlier this year. Ginsburg was released from the hospital on Friday, Nov 9.
