AOC’s Cancel Student Debt Insanity & Democrats’ Lockdown Hypocrisy | DIRECT MESSAGE | Rubin Report


Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks about AOC’s call to cancel student debt, new proof that Gavin Newsom’s apology wasn’t exactly truthful, and Senator Tammy Duckworth’s reaction to Donald Trump announcing a troop withdrawal from Afghanistan and Iraq. Dave first discusses the insanity of Democratic plans to immediately launch some form of student loan forgiveness as soon as Joe Biden is in office. Student loan debt is a major problem for millions of Americans, but should millions of taxpayers who paid off their college debt, and millions of others who never took out student loans be responsible for funding a bailout for other’s financial mismanagement? Wouldn’t it make more sense to figure out why is college so expensive to begin with? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggests not only canceling student debt, but also medical debt and more. Meanwhile new photos of Governor Newsom’s fancy dinner at The French Laundry have shown that he even lied during his apology saying that he was eating outdoors. This is yet another example of Democratic lockdown hypocrisy where the COVID rules only apply to regular people. In good news Donald Trump has announced that he will be withdrawing troops from the Middle East in Iraq and Afghanistan bringing America closer to ending the Afghanistan War. In a normal year Democrats would have been happy about this, instead Democrat Tammy Duckworth has denounced this positive development. Are Democrats the new pro-war party?
