Laura Ingraham Trashed After Cruel Tweet About Having Her Mom Work Into Her 70s To Pay For Her Student Loan



Laura Ingraham

Fox News host Laura Ingraham sparked an avalanche of negative comments on Thursday after she railed against student loan debt forgiveness with a tweet about her mother working into her 70s to pay for her tuition debt.

“My mom worked as a waitress until she was 73 to help pay for our college, even helped with loan repayment,” Ingraham wrote on Twitter. “Loan forgiveness just another insult to those who play by the rules,” the 59-year-old pundit added.

Her comments came after President Joe Biden suggested this week that he may again extend the pause on federal student loan payments. The Biden White House has also indicated an upcoming executive order to cancel some amount of individual debt.

As expected, critics were quick to respond, with some pointing out the obvious flaw in her thinking: that her mother had to work far beyond retirement age indicated the student loan system was “shitty,” “broken” and in need of reform.
