There were facepalm-worthy moments at the first Democrat debate in Detroit Tuesday night, and one was set up by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who expressed displeasure at the cost of a higher education:
Warren talks about going to college for $50 a semester, and wearing an onion on her belt, which was the style at the time.

With @ewarren's #UltraMillionaireTax we can provide universal child care, universal early education, universal tuition-free public college, and we can cancel student loan debt for 95% of Americans who have it. #DemDebate pic.twitter.com/nE5LYkC6mX

And with that, Katie Pavlich brought it all into perfect perspective:
As Elizabeth Warren closes the night with complaints about cost of college for students, just remember she was paid $400,000 to teach one class.

You want her to acknowledge WHY the cost is high? Ah, that is just crazy talk. https://t.co/FVFOwKkuCY

Isn’t it strange that Warren doesn’t seem too eager to explore some of the reasons college costs so much.
