Michael Bloomberg has just got his first celebrity endorsement: Judge Judy!
In a time where most Democrats and left-wing famous people aren’t too keen on his status as billionaire, Bloomberg is milking the Judge Judy endorsement for everything it’s worth.
His latest political ad rolled out featured the TV “judge” playing him up.

Judge Judy also recently made an appearance on The View to explain why she is endorsing Bloomberg.
Fox News has more to say on Judge Judy's endorsement of Bloomberg:
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 TV judge’s appearance came on the first episode of 2020 for the ABC News daytime gabfest. She said that New York City has the “most diverse” population of anyplace in America and Bloomberg's experience can help the nation.
“There was a good feeling [under Bloomberg], it was a feeling that things were run effectively and efficiently during his 12 years as mayor,” Judge Judy said. “I felt that way when he was the mayor and he’s a brilliant, self-made guy.”
Judge Judy defended Bloomberg as “not another” rich guy, because she feels he is the only candidate who “has experience governing and managing.”
“If he’s successful and happened to have made money being successful, that folks, is the American dream,” she said.
ABC News also said:
Renowned TV court personality Judge Judith Sheindlin, popularly known as "Judge Judy," recently endorsed a presidential candidate for the first time: Michael Bloomberg. She defended the former New York City mayor during an appearance on "The View" Monday.
"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," Sheindlin said of Bloomberg. "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," she added. "He’s a brilliant, self-made guy who runs and manages thousands of people, and has for 30 years.”
Bloomberg officially entered the presidential race in November 2019 with a pricey eight-figure TV ad campaign.
