Judge Judy Sheindlin declared her support for former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s presidential candidacy Monday on ABC’s “The View.”
Judge Judy, who has not publicly endorsed a presidential candidate in the past, explained why she’s going to bat for Bloomberg.
“I’ve never seen Americans so angry with each other as a family and it became sort of frightening when you couldn’t go to a social gathering and have a difference of opinion… if you view America as the greatest family on the planet, I felt as if it was time for America, which is the greatest country in the world, to have the greatest president,” she said. “When I looked at the field of 2020 candidates… there was no other voice, for me, other than the voice of someone who has experience in governance second only to the president of the United States.”...
The judge, 77, known for her daytime TV show “Judge Judy,” appeared in a 30-second video shared by Bloomberg’s official campaign in which she explained why she was supporting him in the crowded Democratic field against incumbent candidate Donald Trump.
