The hosts of ABC’s “The View” complained during Thursday’s broadcast that the Supreme Court was plotting to “help Trump” by taking up the case regarding whether or not the former president was immune from prosecution.

Cohost Joy Behar, ignoring the fact that the Supreme Court was already expediting the case at Special Counsel Jack Smith’s request, questioned the timing of the case — asking specifically why they wouldn’t take up the case “immediately.”

“They’re not taking up this case immediately, so what’s their motivation then?” Behar asked. “What is their motivation for not doing it right away?”

“Unfortunately, some people are saying the motivation is that there are certain conservative justices that have been appointed by Trump that want to help him,” cohost Sunny Hostin alleged, suggesting that the timing was an intentional move to make sure that Smith’s case against Trump could not be completed prior to the presidential election in November.

“Because we know the end result is — if this case is not resolved by the time of the election and he God forbid becomes the President of the United States — the Justice Department policy is that you can’t indict nor put on trial a sitting president, right? And so it’s his get out of jail free — but it’s his get out of jail free card.”

“He could throw him in jail,” Goldberg interrupted as Hostin finished. “No, no, no, I’m saying Biden could …”


Hostin followed that up with a reference to the 2000 presidential election and the Bush v. Gore case that came after Gore raised questions surrounding the Florida ballots and multiple recounts found in Bush’s favor.

“The Bush v. Gore case happened real quick,” Hostin said, arguing that the Supreme Court knew how to truly expedite things when they chose to do so. “The Supreme Court knows how to work real fast.”


Behar got sidetracked by the mention of the 2000 election, saying of the Court’s decision: “That’s was the day democracy died.”

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

“It was choking it,” Goldberg added. “It was choking it.”
