Tucker Hammers Chelsea Clinton, Links Her to College Admission Scandals

The recent college admissions scandal confirmed what everyone already knew about colleges and universities: The mediocre children of rich and powerful people like the Clintons get a free pass.

A federal affidavit that was made public Tuesday revealed a huge scandal in which wealthy parents spent as much as $75,000 to cheat their students into prestigious colleges and universities, according to the Associated Press.

Parents such as actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman paid Edge College & Career Network, also known as The Key, to take the ACT or SAT at a private test center, where answers were provided or corrected.

But as Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed out Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” this recent college admissions scandal doesn’t “even touch the greatest scandal of all.”

“And that’s how the mediocre children of the politically powerful on both sides take top spots at top schools without even resorting to bribery. They get it for free. They are just awarded them for the achievement of being born,” Tucker explained.

“That’s how Chelsea Clinton wound up at Stanford and Oxford … And then making documentary films nobody ever watched. All without having a single original thought ever in her life.”

Like the children in the most recent cheating scandal, the Clintons’ daughter was accepted by top schools, seemingly for no other reason than being born rich and powerful.

But it’s worse because the Clintons probably didn’t even have to bribe anybody.

“You know what that is?” Tucker continued. “That’s an aristocracy disguised as a meritocracy. It’s a scam.”

Here’s hoping the new scandal will put a magnifying glass on the entire, corrupt process of college admissions.

Schools are eager to pick up elite students in the same way they are eager to invoke affirmative action to pick up any student that fits the school’s diversity quotas.

Currently, nobody knows how colleges and universities pick their students and what algorithms they use, because it’s obviously not based on merit alone.

“What the rest of us don’t know but should know is how the college admissions system actually works,” Carlson said. “Who gets in and why?”

In fact, Harvard came under fire just last year for discriminating against Asian-American students.

But Harvard’s discrimination scandal didn’t have the “sticking power” of juicier stories, and the establishment media stopped covering it — just like every time affirmative action and the corrupt admissions operation get attention.

Colleges and universities are dens of corruption, and it’s time for taxpayers to demand transparency in the admissions process.

    I have absolutely no doubts that Chelsea Clinton, Malia Obama and others were admitted to the colleges of their choices or their parents choices with merit being zero.

    A Genius can act like an idiot, but an idiot can not act like a Genius. And money or social standing can not correct this.

      It appears to work for AOC. Maybe because of the recipients of her message.

        Mostly because she’s young, cute, and very outspoken. As more and more people begin to listen to her message her boat will sink on its own.

      I beg to differ with your statement.

      Both houses of congress prove your assumption to be in error.

      Win an election and ‘automatically gain’ 160 IQ points and become world renown ex-spurts on every subject known to Man…

    Well let’s not leave out the Obozo girl/girls ,who very easily got in to Harvard….at TAXPAYER’S expense because she was the daughter of a president (well MAYBE , but I doubt it, there is not ONE picture of Moochelle pregnant to be found ….how weird is that…might be a taxpayer “rented family”…being paid about $260,000 in college fees per child)….let’s do a little research on Obozo/her too.

    How much Federal tax money is paid to give all of these “Dreamers” FREE college tuition when children of American citizens are turned away, or cannot afford the tuition? If accepted at all, American students have hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loans and begin their lives in debt. ANY PERSON who got FREE ADMISSION should have their degree revoked!

    Look how far Chelsea’s got ,wasn’t even able to hold a job at NBC or ABC (whatever she was short hired also based on her privilege born ) .Only to live on her mother’s cheating every chance she got in hers and husband’s life .While our children pushed to the extreme to reach their potential goals based on their hard work with less privilege life style, and to get rejected with no justification .My daughter graduating 4.0 second in class with job since she was 14 babysitting and cutting coupons ,answering phone and 100% requirement community service (mother working two jobs ) was rejected from our own city USC .Only to put a big discouragement on her pursuit in life .Now we know why ,because the privileged had to take over .
