Judge Judy Sheindlin, a supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg, warned Bernie Sanders superfans that they won’t succeed in their socialist revolution. Why? Because she “will fight them to the death.”
Judge Judy — whose net worth reportedly tops $400 million — is the highest-paid TV star in the world, thanks to the brash, no-nonsense brand of justice she doles out daily on her popular TV show. Judy’s annual salary tops $47 million, or $900,000 per episode.
Sheindlin, 77, previously refused to endorse any political candidate but decided to back fellow New Yorker, Mike Bloomberg, this election cycle. Why?
“Because it was urgent,” Judge Judy told Fox 25 in Oklahoma City during a campaign stop with Bloomberg. “I really believe that America is in trouble. Everybody’s angry, polarized.”

Without saying his name, Sheindlin contrasted Bloomberg with socialist Bernie Sanders, who wants to transform the United States into a socialist regime. Judge Judy said she and Bloomberg prove that the American Dream is possible — thanks to American capitalism.
“Mike Bloomberg is not an ideologue. He’s a doer,” Judge Judy said. “Mike and I are the product of the American Dream. Mike grew up a middle-class kid, put himself through school. I grew up a middle-class kid.”
Judge Judy suggested that unlike socialists, Bloomberg understands that giving people the tools they need to help themselves will lift them out of poverty over the long haul, compared to the short-sighted socialist approach of promising to give everything for free.

Scheindlin continued: “I was born in Brooklyn, so I have Brooklyn street smarts. I know that if you give children reasonable building blocks — if you give them a fishing pole — they’ll always be able to eat. America doesn’t need a revolution…It’s the most perfect country in the world. And those people that are trying to change it and ‘revolutionize’ it don’t have a chance. Because I’ll fight them to the death!”
Judge Judy was referring to the adage: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and he feeds himself for a lifetime.”
Scheindlin’s anti-socialism dig was also a veiled jab at Bernie supporter Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Two weeks ago, AOC drew widespread scorn for declaring that it’s “physically impossible” for people to pull themselves up by their “bootstraps.”
At the time, AOC was trying to justify her stance that poor Americans should not even try to lift themselves out of poverty. Instead, they should depend on the government to save them (that’s a typical socialist, victim-mentality attitude).
Judge Judy is not the only celebrity to endorse Bloomberg. Film director Clint Eastwood, a gun-toting libertarian, recently revealed that he supports Bloomberg. Eastwood said even though he approves of “certain things that Trump has done,” he’s put off by his brash personality.
“[I wish Trump would act] in a more genteel way, without tweeting and calling people names,” Eastwood said. “I would personally like for him to not bring himself to that level.”
Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders is surging in the polls on the back of his blow-out victory at the Nevada Caucus this weekend. President Trump responded by congratulating “Crazy Bernie” on Twitter.
Looks like Crazy Bernie is doing well in the Great State of Nevada. Biden & the rest look weak, & no way Mini Mike can restart his campaign after the worst debate performance in the history of Presidential Debates. Congratulations Bernie, & don’t let them take it away from you!

The President is not worried about Bernie, Mini-Mike, or Joe Biden. Because they don’t have this:
