Whoopi Goldberg Suggests Biden Could Act Against Republicans if Supreme Court Rules in Trump’s Favor

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of “The View,” raised eyebrows with her recent comments, suggesting that President Joe Biden could potentially incarcerate every Republican if the Supreme Court rules in favor of former President Donald Trump in the presidential immunity case. The Supreme Court has agreed to consider Trump’s appeal on presidential immunity after the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected his claim of immunity from prosecution in an election interference case.

Goldberg’s statement came during a discussion about the potential outcomes if the Supreme Court grants Trump the immunity he seeks. She speculated on the broad powers Biden could wield, including imprisoning Republicans and dismissing debts. Her remarks ignited a conversation among the co-hosts about the motivations behind the Supreme Court’s decision to take up the case and the implications of such a ruling.

Co-host Joy Behar questioned the court’s timing, noting that they appear to be delaying an immediate decision. Sunny Hostin suggested that conservative justices on the court might be inclined to support Trump, considering the Department of Justice’s policy that prevents the indictment of a sitting president, potentially giving him a “get-out-of-jail-free card.”

Goldberg emphasized that a ruling in Trump’s favor could set a “slippery slope,” expressing concerns about the broader implications. Hostin argued that the court is likely to address the issue before the next election. Trump’s trial, initially scheduled for March 4, has been postponed pending the Supreme Court’s ruling.

Special counsel Jack Smith has charged Trump with four counts related to alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election during the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021. Trump has characterized the case as “prosecutorial misconduct” and accused Smith of interference in the 2024 presidential election. The Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments on April 22, shaping the future course of Trump’s legal challenges.
