Biden ‘Admitted On TV He’s Breaking The Law’ In Giving Student Loan Bailout, Critics Say

President Joe Biden (D) admitted his student loan bailout is illegal during a CBS News interview that aired on Sunday night, critics say.

Biden made the remarks during an interview on CBS News’ “60 Minutes” with host Scott Pelley.

“Mr. President, first Detroit Auto Show in three years. Is the pandemic over?” Pelley asked.

“The pandemic is over,” Biden responded. “We still have a problem with COVID. We’re still doing a lotta work on it. It’s– but the pandemic is over. if you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it’s changing. And I think this is a perfect example of it.”

Biden’s remarks generated widespread backlash on both sides of the political aisle, but for vastly different reasons.

“THE MANDATES MUST END. IMMEDIATELY. ALL OF THEM,” journalist Megyn Kelly tweeted. “And if they don’t, new legal challenges must be filed ASAP.”

“President Biden’s declaration on 60 Minutes that the pandemic is over—which his administration also argued when ending Title 42 back in May—confirms the illegality of his attempt to transfer hundreds of billions of dollars of student debt to the taxpayer,” National Review writer Charles C.W. Cooke tweeted. “Textually, the OLC’s interpretation of the 2003 HEROES Act was preposterous from top to bottom. But even if one were to cynically ignore all that, the lack of an emergency would render the whole thing moot. Biden just admitted on TV he’s breaking the law.”

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) tweeted: “If ‘the pandemic is over’ as Biden says, then all of the President’s emergency powers predicated on a pandemic, all COVID vax mandates, the emergency powers of every governor, Emergency Use Authorizations, and the PREP act should all be voided tomorrow.”
