Judge Judy Sheindlin is prepared to "fight to the death" if she has to stop those trying to "revolutionize" the United States — a jibe at 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) and his socialist movement.

Sheindlin, best known for being the magistrate of courtroom drama series 'Judge Judy', has thrown her undivided support behind former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg for the Democratic party’s nominee for president. And in a recent Bloomberg campaign stop, she made it clear that she will do everything she can to stop the "Bernie bros" from changing the political landscape of the country.

"I grew up middle-class kid, I wasn’t as smart as he was," Sheindlin told Fox 25 reporter Mckenna Eubank of Bloomberg during a campaign stop in Oklahoma City. "I couldn’t get into great schools, but I got into okay schools. I was born in Brooklyn, so I have Brooklyn street smarts."

"And I know that if you give children reasonable building blocks, you give them a fishing pole, they will always be able to eat," she continued. "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," she concluded.

As Sheindlin spoke to Fox 25, Bloomberg was within arm's length and acknowledged her support with a chuckle.

“Don’t get on the wrong side of the judge,” he said. “That’s the message.”

In an October op-ed for USA Today, Sheindlin said America was “hopelessly” and “bitterly” divided and that the country could only come together again if Bloomberg became "our next president."

“We need a no-nonsense president who’s sane, competent and honest, someone who can’t be bought and has no skin in the game,” she wrote at the time. “As he showed during 12 years as mayor in New York City Hall, Michael Bloomberg fits the bill.”
