What You STILL Don’t Know About the College Admissions Scandal

Just about everyone in the United States has heard that a number of rich and famous parents paid large sums of money to get their kids into ivy-league colleges and universities. However, as Fox News’ Tucker Carlson recently revealed, Democrat politicians are getting their kids into Ivy League educational institutions at an amazingly disproportionate rate.

If the tables were turned and it was GOP politicians who were doing the same, the news media would be up in arms. Not surprisingly, left-leaning news outlets that were so eager to pounce on rich people who use their money and influence to buy up college and university placements are silent when former and current DNC politicians use their wealth and influence to give their kids a head start in life.

Granted, it’s to be expected that at least a few politicians’ kids would get into Ivy League colleges. After all, these children have had only the best educational opportunities since birth. However, that fact that just about all the children of senior Democrat politicians are getting into the best colleges and universities doesn’t seem like an accident.

For instance, all four of former Vice-President Al Gore’s children managed to get into Harvard, even though the school only accepts about 4.5% of all the students that apply. The odds of this happening are equal to getting hit by lightning every single day for an entire year. And they aren’t the only ones. Other young people who have been able to ride their famous parents’ coattails into Harvard include the children of Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Sen. Bob Menendez, Sen. Chuck Schumer, and the children of former President Barack Obama and former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer.

Harvard isn’t the only Ivy League to favor the offspring of liberal politicians. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s son, along with the children of Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and Sen. Michael Bennet all made it into Yale in spite of the fact that Yale has an application acceptance rate of less than 6%. Georgetown, which reportedly has an average GPA of 3.99, was the university of choice for Paul Pelosi Jr., Hunter Biden and a number of young people from the Kennedy clan. Chelsea Clinton managed to get into Stanford in spite of the university’s acceptance rate of 4.8%.

College admissions for rich and powerful children of Democrats isn’t the only indicator that there’s active discrimination occurring. While Ivy League colleges and universities spent well over $1 million on donations to Democratic politicians in 2018, some gave nothing to GOP politicians while others gave only measly amounts. Yale, for instance, gave Democratic politicians more than $170,000, yet only had about $2,600 to spare for their GOP counterparts. Harvard gave over $440,000 to Democratic candidates, while giving less than $50,000 to Republicans. It has also been estimated that Ivy League schools gave about $2.6 million to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she ran for president in 2016.

It is ironic that while Democrats rail against the rich when they are always more than happy to use their wealth and connections for their own benefit.
