Biden blasted for boasting he gave middle finger to Supreme Court ruling against canceling student loans

Perhaps emboldened by the wild success in brazenly ignoring, if not breaking, U.S. immigration law, President Biden boasted about ignoring the Supreme Court of the United States — a feat that normally would result in a non-Democratic president being charged with insurgency and destroying “our democracy.”

Biden spoke at the Julian Dixon Library in Culver City, California, on Wednesday on canceling student debt for another 153,000 people, totaling $1.2 billion. In commenting on an effort critics liken to buying coted in an election year, the 81-year-old president bragged that the Supreme Court, which ruled last year by a vote of 6-3, that the administration overstepped its authority when it canceled up to $400 billion in student loans, “didn’t stop me.”

“Early in my term, I announced a major plan to provide millions of working families with debt relief for their college student debt,” he said. “Tens of millions of people in debt were literally about to be canceled in debts. But my MAGA Republican friends in the Congress, elected officials and special interests stepped in and sued us. And the Supreme Court blocked it. But that didn’t stop me.”

Biden also touted the alleged vote-buying move in a tweet:

The Federalist senior writer David Harsanyi responded to Biden’s remarks in a tweet, “Yesterday he was going on about how republicans were going to destroy ‘democracy.’”

“We’ve been reliably told this kind of rhetoric is an assault on democracy,” said RealClearInvestigations editor-at-large Benjamin Weingarten in a tweet.

“Biden explaining that he’s happy to break the law to give away your money,” Foundation for Economic Excellence editor-at-large Jon Miltimore weighed in.

Here’s a quick sampling of other responses to the story, as seen on X:
