White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Thursday was stumped by Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich’s question on the legal basis for Biden to ‘cancel’ student loan debt.
“The Heroes Act hinges on student debt cancelation being tied to the pandemic and that being a national emergency, but the administration argued in court that the pandemic is over at the southern border to lift Title 42,” Heinrich said.
She continued, “It’s so over that the government’s gonna stop buying vaccines in the fall, so how is this a COVID national emergency when it comes to student debt?”
“So it’s a very good question,” Karine Jean-Pierre said before delivering a nonsensical word salad.

Karine Jean-Pierre on Thursday also said the student loan bailout will be fully paid for because of all the work Joe Biden has done with the economy.
The US economy is officially in a recession after two back-to-back quarters of negative GDP growth.
Of course the debt isn’t going to magically disappear.
The middle class will be forced to pay other people’s student loan debt.
Karine Jean-Pierre absurdly claimed the debt cancelation will be fully paid for because of all the work Biden has done to boost the economy.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy on Thursday left Karine Jean-Pierre stuttering when he asked who is paying for the student loan bailout.
“When you forgive debt, you’re not just disappearing debt, who is paying for this?” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked KJP.
Karine Jean-Pierre refused to give a straight answer.
