  • Democrats in Washington are clashing

  • over student loan forgiveness

  • after President Biden said he would not

  • issue an executive order forgiving $50,000 in student loans.

  • Yeah.

  • Party leaders are strongly asking

  • President Biden to reconsider,

  • and they're not the only ones

  • with a message for President Biden,

  • a lot of young people are upset.

  • Apparently even my assistant Sona Movsesian

  • has something she would like to say, Sona.

  • Thanks Conan.

  • By the way, Sona,

  • I didn't know that you were that political.

  • I'm not,

  • but as someone who had a lot of student loan debt,

  • I really wanted to weigh in on this.

  • Terrific, you have the floor.

  • Go ahead

  • And urge President Biden, not to forgive student loans.

  • Wait a minute,

  • you don't want him to forgive student loans?

  • That's what I just said.

  • You see if I didn't have crippling debt

  • coming out of college, I might not have been forced

  • to take this job as your assistant,

  • which I have spent all of my formative years doing.

  • Yeah, that's true.

  • Without student loans,

  • I might've been able to pursue one of my real passions,

  • like documentary filmmaking.

  • Instead I'm here spreading hummus on a gluten-free tortilla

  • just the way you like it.

  • Not too much hummus, okay?

  • It's a really strong flavor.

  • Yeah, thin layer

  • By now I might've been able

  • to direct an award-winning film

  • about a girl's school in Afghanistan,

  • but instead I'm driving around the city,

  • looking for a chest merkin in that matches your hair color

  • in case you decide to wear a v-neck

  • It's important, the hairs show.

  • Do they have one for down below?

  • (laughing)

  • Come on Sona, you have to admit

  • the job does have its perks,

  • you get to be on a hit podcast,

  • you get to appear on national television.

  • I love being famous enough

  • to be on the walls of dry cleaners in Glendale

  • and have grown men rating my feet on WikiFeet.

  • 4.6.

  • That's a pretty good rating.

  • (grunting)

  • God.

  • In fact, I love it so much

  • that I want to give this opportunity to other students too.

  • So please President Biden, don't cancel student debt

  • and allow students to pursue their dreams.

  • Make sure they're desperate enough

  • to take any assistant job that comes their way.

  • Then one of them will have to take over this job for me

  • and I can finally do something I enjoy.

  • Thanks.

  • Yeah, thank you Sona.

  • By the way you're fired.

  • I wish!

  • (screaming)

  • All right, well, listen,

  • we've got a great show tonight.

  • Wanda Sykes gonna be joining us.

  • We'll take a break.

  • We'll be right back.

  • Terrific job, Sona.

  • Make sure, do they have that for the low back too?

  • I've got a little tuft there that needs a placing.

  • (laughing)

  • What's wrong with you.

  • [Conan] Well, it's true. It's, it's so orange.
