Judge Judy Weighs in on Presidential Candidates

The very spicy Judge Judy Sheindlin does not rely solely on the bench as the platform to speak her mind. On Tuesday, the former Manhattan family court judge lit into Senator Bernie Sanders’ cry for a “revolution,” calling it a “joke because it’s fiscally impossible.

Sanders has said that it will take nothing short of a revolution to overturn the political establishment in Washington and elect a democratic socialist as president. The one politician who practically storms college campuses, gathering a strong support from America’s youth, is Bernie Sanders an enticing piped piper of sorts? Is Joe Biden too nice?

Sheindlin told MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle that Senator Sander’s revolution is not what the country needs with a reminder that wherever it’s been tried on a large scale, its failed.

The 77-year-old added, “So it’s really a joke to think that you can fool the American public when you’ve been in Congress for as many years, as Bernie Sanders has been in Congress, who I think had either three or four bills passed in the 30 years that he has been in Congress, and two of them were to name post offices.”

The TV court personality of the ‘Judge Judy’ program endorsed former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg during the Democratic presidential primary. Scheindlin said of Bloomberg, "When I looked at the field of 2020 candidates, for one reason or another, although I'm sure they're all very nice people, there was no other voice for me other than a voice of someone who has experience in governance.”

She added, "New York City has the most diverse population of any place else in the United States of America. Things were run effectively and efficiently during his 12 years as mayor. He’s a brilliant, self-made guy who runs and manages thousands of people, and has for 30 years.”

Joe Biden

Sheindlin warns that that Joe Biden may not perform well in general election debates against Trump because his Democratic opponents have treated him with "kid gloves" up to this point.

She feels Biden is a “nice guy” and not the kind of street fighter needed to defeat Donald Trump. "Joe Biden is a nice guy. I have nothing bad to say about him," Sheindlin said. "But I guarantee you that the incumbent, if he gets on the stage with Joe Biden, is going to bring up all the things that the other Democratic candidates at debates did not because the one thing the incumbent is, is a street fighter.

End of an Era

The retired prosecutor recently announced that her highly rated show, ‘Judge Judy,’ will be coming to an end after being on air for 25 seasons.

On Monday, Sheindlin told Ellen DeGeneres, "Next year will be our 25th season, silver anniversary, and CBS, I think, sort of felt, they wanted to optimally utilize the repeats of my program, because now they have 25 years of reruns. So, what they decided to do was to sell a couple of years' worth of reruns."

Sheindlin also gave the clarification that she is not exactly retiring since she will have a new show titled ‘Judy Justice.’
