Conservative commentator Megyn Kelly blasted President Joe Biden Wednesday for “taking his magic eraser” to student loan debt on an episode of “The Megyn Kelly Show.”

Kelly criticized the president’s Wednesday announcement that his administration is canceling $1.2 billion of student loan debt for thousands of Americans months after the Supreme Court struck down his previous efforts.

“This is a moment for us to applaud those people on just waiting out the system long enough that they finally got a president who wants their vote badly enough he’s just gonna take out his magic eraser,” Kelly said.

Biden moved to waive the student loan debt of 153,000 Americans eligible under Biden’s Saving on a Valuable Education (SAVE) repayment plan, which was launched in 2023. The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in June 2023 to block the president’s plan to use executive power to cancel the student loan debt of nearly 40 million Americans.

“The Supreme Court blocked Biden’s sweeping student loan ‘forgiveness’ plan last June and ever since then he’s been trying to do an end around that prohibition,” Kelly said. “He’s ‘canceled’ debt for almost 3.9 million borrowers totaling around 138 billion in relief.”

“We’re supposed to believe that he has no consequence. He just waved it away with his magic wand, so good on them and woe is the rest of us, you know, the losers who paid their debt,” Kelly said.

Kelly observed that Biden’s campaign has been releasing “weird” videos ever since special counsel Robert Hur declined to pursue criminal charges against the president because Biden “would likely present himself to a jury as, as he did during our interview, as a sympathetic, well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory.” She emphasized the uphill battle Biden faces in a general election, characterizing the student loan debt relief as a last-ditch effort to counter the president’s trouble participating in in-person events.

“He can’t do live events,” Kelly said. “Apparently, I mean, we’re going to see him at the State of the Union. We’ll find out whether he can read off a prompter, but he can’t do like a Trump rally, for, forget it. Certainly, couldn’t do a live debate. So, they’ve been putting out these little prepackaged videos of him.”
