Donald Trump Should Take Election Challenge to Judge Judy, Twitter Users Suggest

Twitter users suggested on Saturday that President Donald Trump could bring his legal challenges to the 2020 presidential election results to TV's Judge Judy following an unfavorable Supreme Court ruling.

The nine justices issued an unsigned ruling on Friday refusing to hear a lawsuit filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton aimed at throwing out election results in four states that voted for President-elect Joe Biden.

Trump and some of his Republican supporters had billed the case as the "big one" that would hand the election to the president and guarantee him a second term. Now that the case has fizzled out, social media users offered their advice for Trump's next steps.

"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," wrote Twitter user @BabeTruth2 on Friday.

Judge Judy and The People's Court are long-running arbitration-based reality TV shows but it's very unlikely Trump could appeal to Night Court, a popular sitcom that aired from 1984 to 1992.

Other users were quick to weigh in on Trump's chances before the famously direct and no-nonsense Judge Judy, whose Emmy Award-winning show has been on the air since 1996.

"Next stop for Trump is Judge Judy," wrote lawyer Daniel Uhlfelder, but others won't so sure about the president's chances of success in the TV courtroom.

"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, adding a two-minute video of Sheindlin yelling at plaintiffs and defendants on her show.

CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta had made the same joke about Trump on December 9 after the president's campaign and other Republican litigants had lost numerous legal challenges to the 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.'"
