Speaking on President Joe Biden’s craptastic plan to “forgive” $10,000 in student loan debt – or $20,000, for Pell Grant recipients – for Americans making less than $125,000 a year, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was unable – or unwilling – to say who would be footing the bill.

Grilled by Fox News’ Peter Doocy on who would be left holding the $300 billion-plus price tag for the program, Jean-Pierre awkwardly and repeatedly refused to answer the question, instead serving up a heaping helping of word salad that even the most skilled linguist wouldn't be able to decipher.

"Who is paying for this...When you forgive debt, you're not just disappearing debt, so who is paying for it?" Doocy asked flatly.

"What we are saying is the work that this administration has done, the work that the Democrats in Congress have done, is actually there," Jean-Pierre responded.

Whatever that means.

“We’re doing this in a smart way. We’re doing this in a way that’s going to be effective,” she blathered, after failing to answer exactly who would be paying off the debts now being relieved from those who actually signed up for them.

She then claimed to have answered the question in what was perhaps the worst non-answer given from the press briefing podium to date.
