Judge Judy Tells Bill Maher Why Bloomberg Can Unite America, Maher Pushes Back
Judge Judy recently voiced her opinion on who she would endorse for President in 2020.
She said that the only person who she believes can unite the country is former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
According to Fox News,
"Judge Judy" Sheindlin made the case for a Michael Bloomberg presidency Friday night during her debut appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher," arguing that the billionaire former mayor of New York City -- who has filed to run in Alabama's Democratic primary -- is the "only" candidate who can bring civility back to the country.
"We have a fractured American family," Sheindlin began, adding she believed that while there are people like Maher who despise President Trump, there are also others who "adore" the president. She went on to blast lawmakers on Capitol Hill for their lack of legislating.
Judge Judy went on to say, "The parties have become so angry with each other that nothing is happening. The American public is paying for a very expensive system -- an executive, a judicial branch of government, and Congress -- and we're not getting anything done. Bridges aren't getting built, roads aren't getting fixed, infrastructure isn't getting done, because everybody's so busy hating each other."
Maher jumped in and asked Judge Judy if she thought Bloomberg is the man who can get the job done in that regard.
The Judge replied, "He's the only answer and I'm going to tell you why. First of all, if you think about it, Michael Bloomberg is the only person running who has over a decade of executive experience running the largest city in the United States."
That's when Maher jumped in to combat her opinion:
"This is not what people care about. Look at who won last time."
"I don't see a big-city Jew exciting the vote in Alabama or a lot of the country."
"The election is going to be decided in six states and they're not named New York. ... We're talking about Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Michigan, Florida."
"You know what they're going to say? That Elizabeth Warren is doing great in the Democratic primary because she is talking about the wealth gap. He's a very rich guy, he's got a lot of buddies on Wall Street."
