Gutfeld would ‘go to war’ over student debt cancellation: ‘I don’t want to pay your bill!’

Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld, co-host of “The Five,” was discussing college degrees and student loans when he revealed how seriously he feels about the cancellation of student debt.

Fellow co-host Sean Duffy opened the segment with some disheartening statistics on college grads before kicking it over to Gutfeld, asking if the college experience is “worth it.”

“It doesn’t matter if it’s worth it if it’s required in life,” Gutfeld remarked. “A college degree is not meant to give you any knowledge. It’s a signal that gets you into the club. It’s a six-figure cover charge to get you into the bar of life.”

“It’s a virtue signal, and it always has been a virtue signal, but now the virtue signal of a bachelor’s degree is not enough,” he explained. “So then it’s like ‘well this person has a master’s,’ ‘well this person has a Ph.D.,’ you’re now in an arms race of degrees, and the hangover is you pay it off later.”

He explained that there are alternative tracks in life that may lead to more fulfillment and less debt.

“There’s ways to gain experience in life, so you don’t end up six, seven figures in debt,” he noted. “And by the way, nobody’s paying for it. You’re paying for it. That’s something I would go to war for. Cancel debt? No, no, no, no, no. And everybody who paid their debts would be on my side.”

Duffy then turned it over to Jeanine Pirro.

“The average cost of a graduate’s debt is $37,000. A lot of social sciences and communications, art majors make less than $45,000 a year. They can never pay it back,” she said.

“First of all, Jen Psaki is the one who said we have so many jobs available. She says the economy is so good but yet they’re the same people who are talking about maybe getting ready that that student debt,” Pirro railed. “If you can’t afford it, go to a state school. Go to a community college. You don’t have to go to the best school. Get a job. I had a job in college. I had a job in law school. Stop with the nonsense that this namby-pamby ‘you gotta pay my bill.’ I don’t want to pay your bill. Pay your own bill.”
