Whoopi Goldberg, a co-host on “The View,” made a bold statement suggesting that President Joe Biden has the power to “incarcerate every Republican” should the Supreme Court decide in favor of former President Donald Trump in a case concerning presidential immunity.

The Supreme Court’s decision to hear Trump’s appeal comes after the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals concluded that he does not have immunity from prosecution in the case related to election interference, a case initiated by special counsel Jack Smith. The Supreme Court is set to begin oral arguments on this issue on April 22.

Sunny Hostin, another co-host on “The View,” voiced her concern that the Supreme Court’s conservative justices might be inclined to assist Trump, especially considering the Department of Justice’s policy that a sitting president cannot be indicted, a policy that could protect Trump should he win re-election.

“Let’s look at a scenario where the Supreme Court says yes, he has all those rights,” Goldberg began. “He is immune from everything. You know what Joe Biden could do since he is presently president? He could … throw every Republican in jail. I mean, he could. What this means is he could do anything. He could dismiss everybody’s debt. You know, there’s a whole bunch of great stuff that could happen. But let’s really look at what this means.”

“So they’re basically kicking the can down the road though,” co-host Joy Behar said. “They’re not taking up this case immediately. So what’s their motivation then if we all know that they can’t do what you just said because of the extreme power that the president would have. What is their motivation for not doing it right away?”

Originally, Trump’s trial was scheduled to commence on March 4. However, this date was postponed by District Judge Tanya Chutkan pending the Supreme Court’s decision on the matter.

The charges brought against Trump by special counsel Smith involve four counts linked to his alleged efforts to invalidate the results of the 2020 presidential election, particularly about the events of January 6, 2021, at the Capitol.

Trump has vehemently criticized the legal actions against him, labeling them as “prosecutorial misconduct” and asserting that they represent an attempt to meddle in the upcoming 2024 presidential election. This case continues to stir significant public and political debate, reflecting the deep divisions within the American political landscape and the ongoing controversies surrounding the former president.
