Election 2020

‘Judge Judy’ of TV Fame Gives Her First Political Endorsement

While Sheindlin is right that we're a divided country these days — her answer for solving the problem is not correct

Judge Judy Sheindlin is doing something she is not known for — and it’s going to open some eyes about the popular TV judge.

Sheindlin, in a new op ed for USA Today, endorsed former New York Gov. Michael Bloomberg for president ahead of the 2020 election.

This public choice by the judge marks the first time she has revealed her personal political leanings.

“I realize I am taking a personal and a career risk,” the “Judge Judy” star wrote in her piece.

“I have carefully stayed away from politics for 50 years, except to vote. But times have changed in our country, and I believe the moment has come for me to step out from behind the curtain.”

Who do you think is/was a better president?

“I want to speak honestly and from the heart,” she also wrote, “regardless of the consequences.”

While Judge Judy Sheindlin is right that we’re a divided country these days and one that cannot thrive the way we’re going, her political choice is not the answer, in my view.

We need someone who is not politically or monetarily motivated — but someone who is personally motivated to do what is right for the country as a whole, instead of what is right for the person, business, or lobbyist with the biggest check.

“The highest-paid personality on television wrote an op-ed for USA Today in which she endorsed Michael Bloomberg for president ahead of the 2020 election,” noted AOL in part about the news.

Sheindlin, 77, wrote that Bloomberg would be the “no-nonsense president” the country needs right now, AOL also noted.

“Our American family has been fractured in recent years. We’re hopelessly divided, and a bitterly divided family cannot thrive,” she said as well.

“The only way we can begin to come together again, I said, is if Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York City, becomes our next president,” she wrote.

Her motives are unclear — but Bloomberg is most definitely not a centrist.

He is an old New York liberal. He’s also an anti-Second Amendment and Green New Deal alarmist. Why would anyone want the country to be like New York?

Most people might be wondering if the judge feels she owes someone something for helping her in the past?

Given Michael Bloomberg’s well-documented history of trying to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights, how’s he going to win an election when 100 million gun owners won’t vote for him?

Thought Judge Judy was wiser than that …

In terms of our country’s division right now, the far Left is violently opposed to anyone who has more conservative and different views than they do — and because of today’s fake news propaganda.

In her piece, Sheindlin acknowledged that Bloomberg has stated he won’t be running for president in this election cycle; but she noted that with candidates “rising and falling,” Bloomberg could still successfully throw his hat into the ring as “a man of the center.” She also pointed out that she didn’t actually endorse anyone currently in the race.

Liberalists can only be shut off by a conservative who will slowly remove the politically correct nonsense from every corner of our life and extinguish all the craziness that Barack Obama’s last term created or allowed to happen.

The division was there during Obama’s last term. Remember, Black Lives Matter and bathrooms for transgender people were among the most important issues on Obama’s list.

That is why, at least in part, Trump was elected — to fight all of this nonsense.

TV personalities and people in Hollywood are far removed from reality. There is a reason Trump was elected in 2016 and will be elected again in 2020, as I see it — and he used the Republican platform because it was against the elite.

He has done a great job, despite the fact that those on the Left are trying to take him down at every moment.
