Judge Judy Stumps For Haley
Exeter, New Hampshire – As the Republican primary race in New Hampshire enters its final days before the crucial vote, television sensation Judge Judy Sheindlin made a surprise appearance with presidential candidate Nikki Haley on Sunday. The 81-year-old retired judge and TV personality delivered her verdict on the South Carolina governor, calling her “the real deal” and urging voters to choose her over front-runner Donald Trump.
Speaking to a crowd of enthusiastic supporters in Exeter, Judge Judy sang the praises of Haley, describing her as “poised, graceful, knowledgeable, centered, and intelligent.” Sheindlin, who has been an avid supporter of Haley’s since the beginning of her presidential bid, also revealed that she had reached out to the candidate after being impressed by her during a previous encounter.
“I saw how she commanded her space,” Judge Judy said, “And when she indicated her desire to run for president of the United States and I saw the field, I said, ‘I want to get to know this lady.'”
While Judge Judy has largely stayed out of politics throughout her career, the current state of affairs prompted her to take a more active role in the political landscape. “I’m not here necessarily to bash the competition, although I’m perfectly capable of doing that,” she said, alluding to Donald Trump. “Suffice it to say that when you teach a child not to put their hand over a flame, you do that because you know they’re going to get burned. Well, we’ve gotten burned.”

As the longest-running and most-watched courtroom series in US television history, Judge Judy’s endorsement carries significant weight with her loyal fans. And with the Republican nomination race heating up, her endorsement could potentially sway some voters in Nikki Haley’s favor. “This is her moment,” Judge Judy declared. “She’s a star… I do know people and this woman is the real deal.”
Haley, meanwhile, was thrilled to have such a prominent figure in her corner. “I am honored and grateful to have the support of Judge Judy,” she said. “Her reputation for fairness and her no-nonsense approach to justice have earned her the admiration and respect of millions of Americans. The fact that she has chosen to endorse me is humbling and I am truly grateful.”
The Haley campaign has seen a surge in momentum in recent weeks, but she still faces an uphill battle against front-runner Trump. According to the latest polls, she is currently 15 points behind the billionaire businessman. However, Haley remains optimistic and determined to close the gap, and with Judge Judy’s endorsement, she may have just gained a crucial advantage over her opponent.
As the rally in Exeter drew to a close, a member of the audience shouted, “Send Trump to prison,” prompting a tepid response from the rest of the crowd. Judge Judy quickly defused the situation, choosing to focus on the positive message of unity and hope that Haley’s campaign represents. “I’m not here to bash the competition,” she reminded the audience, “I’m here to support Nikki Haley, and I hope you will too.”
With the New Hampshire primary just around the corner, the stakes are high for all the Republican candidates. But with the support of a beloved and influential figure like Judge Judy, Nikki Haley may just have the edge she needs to come out on top. As Judge Judy herself put it, “It’s time for Nikki Haley. This is her moment. She’s a star.”
