“Judge Judy” Sheindlin has officially thrown her support behind GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley. The renowned television judge expressed her admiration for Haley in a statement released by Haley’s campaign this Tuesday.
Highlighting Haley’s intelligence and proven leadership skills, Sheindlin praised the former South Carolina governor and U.N. ambassador for her “whip smart” mind and exceptional governance. She described Haley as someone who embodies principles, measured judgment, and an inherent sense of common sense.
Sheindlin, known for her long-standing role in the TV show “Judge Judy,” went on to express her firm belief in Haley’s ability to rejuvenate America. She regards Haley as a key figure for the country’s future, saying, “I truly think she can restore America and believe she is the future of this great nation.”
Haley, responding to the endorsement, expressed her gratitude towards the 81-year-old judge of Amazon Freevee’s “Judy Justice.” She referred to Sheindlin as a “no-nonsense lady” whose fair, thoughtful, and honest approach in her courtroom has garnered widespread respect from Americans.
Previously, Sheindlin, who became a household name over her 25-year tenure on “Judge Judy,” had endorsed Michael Bloomberg, the former Mayor of New York City, in the 2020 presidential race. At that time, she emphasized her preference for a less divisive political figure in Washington.
