The hosts of ABC’s “The View” discussed the Supreme Court agreeing to hear oral arguments on Donald Trump’s presidential immunity claims.

Joy Behar stated that “democracy died” with the Supreme Court’s 2000 Bush v. Gore decision that settled the contested Florida recount in George W. Bush’s presidential victory.

Whoopi Goldberg hypothetically argued that if the Court rules Trump has immunity, it would mean the sitting president has unchecked power to do anything, such as throwing Republicans in jail or dismissing all debt.

“Let’s look at a scenario where the Supreme Court says yes, he has all those rights. 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,” Whoopi Goldberg said.

She added, “What this means is he can do anything. He could dismiss everybody’s debt, you know, there’s a whole bunch of great stuff that could happen. But lets look at what this really means.”

“So basically kicking the can down the road, though. They’re not taking up this case immediately,” Joy Behar said.

Sunny Hostin noted the Court moved quickly in Bush v. Gore and could rule on this case before the end of its term in June.

While Hostin said Bush v. Gore was “certainly an injustice,” Behar maintained it was the day democracy itself died in the U.S.

“They’re listening to these arguments in April. The end of their term is June. The Bush v. Gore case happened real quick. Do you remember that? The Supreme Court knows how to work real fast,” Sunny Hostin said.

Behar said, “That was the day democracy died.”

Hostin said, “Well, it was certainly an injustice to many people.”
