President Donald J. Trump could bring his lawsuits against the 2020 presidential election results to TV's Judge Judy after being rejected by the Supreme Court, his critics have suggested on social media.

Issuing an unsigned ruling on Friday, seven of nine justices refused to hear a lawsuit filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton that challenged election results in four states that voted for Joe Biden.

Trump and a number of his allies in the media had touted the case as the "big one" that had the potential to overturn the election and guarantee the president a second term. But now that the case has been rejected, a number of social media users suggested how Trump could continue his legal battle.

"It's not over yet. Trump still has Judge Judy, The People's Court, Night Court, and the mall food court to plead his case," one Twitter user wrote on Friday. "Since Trump was denied a hearing before the Supreme Court, he should appeal to Judge Judy. Put on pay per view and fund a stimulus check," another quipped.



 



 

'Judge Judy' and 'The People's Court' are long-running reality TV shows based on arbitration. Meanwhile, 'Night Court' is a sitcom that aired from 1984 to 1992. 

Several other users commented on Trump's chances before the no-nonsense TV judge Judy Sheindlin, whose Emmy Award-winning show has been running since 1996.

"Next stop for Trump is Judge Judy," wrote lawyer Daniel Uhlfelder. However, many others weren't so sure about the former real estate mogul's path to legal victory in the TV courtroom either. "Trump is going to be quite crestfallen when he learns that he can’t appeal his Supreme Court loss to Judge Judy," convicted fraudster Roland Scahill tweeted.

"For all of you saying Trump's only option left is Judge Judy, you need to understand something right here and now: she wouldn't tolerate his antics, either...and also, he is terrified of smart women that he can't overtly sexualize," argued writer Amee Vanderpool. "I kinda want to see it," she added.

"Judge Judy is trending because people are saying her courtroom is the last resort for Trump. I guess y'all don't know Miss Sheindlin too well," tweeted user Chris Evans, alongside a two-minute video compilation of Sheindlin yelling at plaintiffs and defendants on her popular show.

"Have any of you people suggesting Trump appear in Judge Judy’s court ever seen Judge Judy? She’d read him for filth, tell him to get his sh*t together, and kick his silly a** out of her courtroom. She suffers no fools," another user chimed in.



 



 



 



 



 

CNN star Jim Acosta had cracked the same joke about the president on December 9, after the Trump campaign and other Republican litigants had lost a series of legal challenges to the 2020 election.

"He lost Pennsylvania, but he still has the state of denial," Acosta said. "It's unclear where they'll go after the Supreme Court, maybe Judge Judy or The People's Court. I asked an adviser if there's any chance Trump will concede. The advisor: 'zero.'"
