Bernie Sanders supporter and Hollywood star Shailene Woodley posted a short video to Twitter yesterday of a young woman who alleges she racked up $226,000 in student loans while studying to be a speech pathologist. Apparently she hopes a President Bernie Sanders will help her pay back the money. Or something.
Check it out:

Something doesn’t smell right here. For starters, how exactly did this degree cost so much?
I'm not sure that you could accumulate this much debt if you tried. https://t.co/d6WEsMFpkK

How on Earth do you manage to rack up $226K in debt for a speech pathology degree? https://t.co/9zDo7iymy2

Speech pathology? $226k in debt? I know doctors with less school debt than that. https://t.co/9XXFKE29Q8

And two, who lent her this much cash?
What incompetent institutions would be loan this much money to a child? https://t.co/626fFvYyJR

And does she really think that even if Sanders does become president, taxpayers should bail her out of what looks like a decision to pursue a degree at a private college for a job that doesn’t pay very well?
If you have 226k in student loan debt (and it's not bc you went to med school), you're just an idiot. https://t.co/cTBXlhdYwj

She’s $226,000 in debt and is only qualified for an entry level position in her field. Let that sink in. https://t.co/1Lb5vVzB6u

Exit question: Where were her parents when this decision was being made?
What parent doesn't advise against this? Smdh https://t.co/9A5VkZ3wHm
