The Massachusetts Senator known for using her fake status as a Native American to get perks at colleges is now attacking the Richie-Rich parents caught up in the recent college admissions/bribery scandal.
Sen. Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren went on the attack against the rich parents indicted for bribing university officials to get preferential treatment for their children. Warren says she has “zero sympathy” for these parents now caught up n the legal system.
On Tuesday, the Department of Justice named 50 people supposedly involved in an elaborate nationwide college admissions cheating campaign. Two of those charged include Hollywood actresses Felicity Huffman, of Desperate Houswives fame, and Lori Loughlin, of the 90s sitcom Full House.
The FBI claims that these parents paid millions in bribes to coaches and administrators to designate their children as prospects for college sports teams to get them into the college despite the fact that none of these kids ever played any of the sports they were supposed to be playing in order to be accepted.
The DOJ said that grades were changed, test scores were messed with, and bribes were paid. It is a whole big mess.
Enter college cheater Elizabeth Warren who is trying to side with the common folk by attacking these rich folks involved in this scandal. The Senator who is also making a run for the Democrat nomination for president in 2020 appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday.
During her appearance, Warren — also a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate — said that she had “zero” sympathy for parents involved in the scam.
This isn’t even the first time she’s talked about the scandal — she denounced the parents’ actions on Tuesday when the news broke.
Later Warren told ABC News, “This is just stunning. I mean, the notion that people thought they could keep cheating like this and build this, evidently build this huge cheating network in order for the children of the rich and the powerful to make it into fancy schools. To me, it’s just one more example of how the rich and powerful know how to take care of their own, and everybody else just gets left behind. I think that’s wrong.”
All this from a woman who lied on college applications saying she was a Native American so she could get special perks.
