Judge Judy Sheindlin is known for holding nothing back on her popular TV show. Now, in a new interview, Judge Judy showed the world that she carries this attitude outside the courtroom when she pledged to fight “to the death” against Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

In an interview with KOKH FOX 25, Sheindlin blasted Sanders and doubled down on her support for former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg.

“Millions of people watch you on TV every day as a judge and they trust your judgment. Why is this actually the first time that you’ve endorsed a presidential candidate?” the judge was asked.

“Because it was urgent, because I really believe America is in trouble,” she responded. “Everybody’s angry, polarized, and it will continue to be polarized, unless you have a president who has no agenda other than to do the right thing for the people he represents. Mike Bloomberg is not an ideologue, he’s a doer. He sees a problem and understands that if you have a solid education as a youngster and as you grow you’ll have the tools to make it. Mike and I are the product of an American dream. Mike grew up as a middle-class kid, put himself through school.”

She went on to say that she could relate to Bloomberg because both of them have similar backgrounds.

“I grew up a middle-class kid, I wasn’t as smart as he was. I couldn’t get into great schools, but I got into okay schools. I was born in Brooklyn, so I have Brooklyn street smarts,” she said. “And I know that if you give children reasonable building blocks, you give them a fishing pole, they will always be able to eat. He understands how to solve that problem, he understands the genesis of it. And he understands how to tweak the things that are wrong with America. 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.”

While it is disappointing to find out that Judge Judy is not a Republican, we’re glad to see that she is steadfastly against socialism. Bloomberg would not be a good president, but he is a far better option than Sanders, who is someone who would destroy America as we know it if he takes office.

Unfortunately, it’s looking like Sanders will end up being the nominee right now. We may need Judge Judy to start fighting “to the death” against him immediately.
