On Wednesday, Fox News host Greg Gutfeld hammered the so-called “Squad” of the Democratic Party for whining that they wanted to cancel student loan debt. Gutfeld snapped, “If I pay your debt, then you gotta pay my mortgage.”

“So did you hear? The Squad — they demanded something,” Gutfeld began. “I know. Let’s hope it’s four one-way tickets to Cuba. Really, why do they keep demanding so much from America when they could get everything they want from a Commie paradise 90 miles south? What whiners. Terrorists don’t make this many demands when they kidnap someone.”

“They work for us, not the reverse,” he pointed out. “But now, they’re lashing out at Biden after he said the White House has no plans to extend the pause on federal student loan repayments. Gee, I wonder if AOC has over $17,000 in student loan debt?”

Gutfeld then played a clip of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) saying on the floor of the House, “I have over $17,000 in student loan debt. … We have a moral obligation, an economic obligation, a political obligation to cancel student loan debt.”

“Cancel?” Gutfeld mocked. “Did you get that? We are morally obligated to pay off this idiot’s debt.”

He referenced Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN): “Sorry, lady, if the members of The Squad were morally obligated, then one of them couldn’t marry her brother. So, she’s talking about her college education debt where she majored in dumb with a minor in ignorance. It’s the debt she agreed to pay, but now she wants you to cover the tab.”

“But okay, I’ll play,” he continued. “If I pay your debt, then you gotta pay my mortgage. How is that for a trade, numbnuts? Why do you get a special carve-out and not me? You actually have more power than I do. You got the privilege and now you want the perks. How about returning that dress you wore to the gala? That’s 20k right there. So, we don’t owe you a single penny.”

“I only wish there was someone around who’s even dumber than her,” he quipped, then played a clip of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) on the floor of the House complaining, “I worked full time, Monday through Friday, and took weekend classes to get my law degree, and still, close to $200,000 in debt.”

“Whose fault is that, you brimming cup of piping hot stupid?” Gutfeld roared. “If she could work hard to get her degree, why can’t she work hard to pay for her degree? … And now you expect us to wipe that financial slate clean? She makes $174,000 a year off taxpayers, and for her, that’s not enough.”

He joked, “Didn’t AOC get a degree in economics? I could clip my toenails for six months, put them in a bag, and they would understand inflation better than her. By the way, I sell them on eBay to pay off my college debt.”

“We’ve seen AOC’s D.C. apartment on Instagram; [it] didn’t look like Section 8 housing to me, Ms. Cortez,” he commented. “They pretend to be the working class, but they expect the working class to bail them out. Yet while they were racking up debt with useless degrees, the working class were denied that opportunity, largely due to cost. You bail these idiots out, you’re literally taking money from people who are worse off than them.”
