Donald Trump Jr Slammed for Mocking Comments Made against Celebs Accused in College Scandal
Donald Trump Jr.’s snarky comments towards Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman after being accused of bribery backfired.
As the saying goes; point the finger at someone else, and four fingers point right back at you, but in Donald Trump Jr. case it was more like hundreds.
After news broke of Lori and Felicity’s alleged bribery to get their children into college, the “Full House” star Lori posted a tweet:
“There are more important things than money. Like doing the right thing. Words to live by.”
In response to the actress’ post which she deleted since, Donald Jr. tweeted, “Hollywood,” along with a link to Lori’s tweet.
The president’s son also had a sarcastic response to a tweet by Felicity Huffman which read, “What are your best ‘hacks’ for the back-to-school season?”
Netizens found it ironic that Donald Jr. would pass judgment on the alleged crimes of the two actresses that want the best college education for their children, even if it meant cutting corners.
Donald Jr. attended the renowned Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. After he graduated with a degree in economics Jr. went on to work for his father and currently serve as the executive vice president and as a trustee of the Trump Organization.
Because his father’s name and wealth opened many doors for Donald Jr. one person commented on the irony:
The Daily Pennsylvanian, UPenn’s student newspaper reported in November 2016, that Donald Trump had donated more than $1.4 million to his alma mater Wharton in the late 1990s.
His generous donations fit the time that Ivanka and Donald Jr. finished high school and began their college education. Donald Jr. enrolled at Wharton in 1996 while Ivanka started taking classes in 2000. Followers also suggested that Donald Jr. prove he earned his spot at the prestigious college:
Although there is no evidence that Trump used his money to bypass admission rules, people still found it suspicious that Jr. got into a sought after university that accepted large amounts of money from his father.
During his college years, Donald Jr. gained quite the reputation according to a book written by the Vanity Fair reporter Jane Fox.
According to PEOPLE, Donald Jr. was more drunk than sober during his college days and would pass out in whoever’s room and wet the bed.
On March 12 Felicity Huffman and her husband Mossimo Giannulli got arrested on charges of being involved in a nationwide college admissions scam as confirmed by Laura Eimiller, public affairs specialist for the FBI.
Court documents obtained by ABC News allege that Felicity “made a purported charitable donation of $15,000 .. to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter.”
Felicity tried to get her daughter, 16-year-old Georgia Macy into an ivy league university through the scheme but eventually decided against it. A warrant for Lori Loughlin arrest also got issued.
One would expect Donald Jr. to be a bit more understanding and even find the situation relatable.
When Jr. and his ex-wife Vanessa announced their divorce was official during a joint statement last month, Jr. made one thing very clear, “our kids and their happiness will always be our first priority.”
