Maher levels Biden on student debt cancelation: ‘Okay, so my tax dollars are supporting this Jew-hating?’

Handouts from President Joe Biden set “incensed” Bill Maher railing against his tax dollars being used in support of “Jew-hating.”

The unrelenting protests chiefly comprised of Hamas sympathizing useful idiots occupying college campuses have been equally matched by disdain from the host of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” On Friday’s latest installment of the program, the comedian coupled unfolding chaos brought by the uninformed with the president’s own act of defiance against the Supreme Court on student loans.

“I’m so incensed about some of this stuff, because, when I read about the college loans…[the] Biden administration’s student debt cancelation will cost a combined $870 billion to $1.4 trillion. That’s a lot of debt forgiveness,” explained Maher after the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget estimated the twelve- or thirteen-figure sum per Biden’s giveaways.

“Okay, so colleges constantly raise tuition, then the kids take out more loans, then the government comes by and pays those loans,” he detailed. “Okay, so my tax dollars are supporting this Jew-hating? I don’t think so.”

According to CFRB, $620 billion had already been spent toward debt cancellation and “the newest debt cancelation scheme could cost an additional $250 to $750 billion based on preliminary estimates.”

Since the Oct. 7 terror attack on Israel, Maher remained vocal in his opposition of the displays of antisemitism and support for the cause of the Islamists who chant “Death to America” and “from the river to the sea.”

“This is America for crying out loud,” he’d said in April. “And there are people who see me say this, ‘Oh, he’s a conservative now’…I have not changed. I always like America and thought death to it was bad.”

The following week, Maher predicted that the protests were going to make their way to the Democratic National Convention in Chicago over the summer and the left would be “bloodied” by chants of “Genocide Joe.”

Responding to Maher’s take, guests Fox News contributor Kellyanne Conway and Bloomberg Businessweek national correspondent Joshua Green sounded off the seeming attempt to buy the vote of the youth vote.

“You can’t have plumbers and pipefitters paying for the student loans of doctors and lawyers,” argued Conway. “I’m all for the government trying to help people who need it, but he did that as a political play and everybody knows it. He’s bleeding young people support.”

Adding to that take, Green suggested it was a lost cause.

“And it hasn’t worked. If you look at issues that young people care about, Gaza is like 15th out of 16th. And the only thing that comes in lower than Gaza is student loan forgiveness.” he said. “So it hasn’t worked as a motivator for the youth vote, you know, half of which are out there changing ‘Genocide Joe.’ So it’s backfired not just in terms of public policy, but in terms of the politics too.”
