Recently, Lemon, 53, has slammed elite parents who are allegedly connected in a college entrance scam as proof of a rigged system that spares the rich people.

“A lot of people will point out, and they have every right to do so, that Donald Trump himself is a beneficiary of a system that’s rigged in favor of the elite."

The award-winning news anchor proceeded with that President Trump also availed from a rigged system that favors the elite. According to him, the alleged crimes were a stunning case of inequity in the United States.

“For all those people who complain about affirmative action—who say it gives an unfair advantage to students of color and other minorities—this is the real scandal. Elite parents gaming the system,” he said.

Lemon pointed out that this sort of scandal disappointed ordinary Americans.

"This is an America that can be deeply unfair, where hard work doesn’t necessarily pay off…" he explained. "Where a whole lot of people have real good reason to believe the system is rigged against them. Listen, this is what Donald Trump tapped into. And in a lot of ways, guess what—he was right."

He then showed videos of the president calling the system rigged at a few public speaking events before the 2016 election.

Lemon said that Trump took advantage of this disappointment regardless of the reality that he is himself a member of the elite.

“A lot of people will point out, and they have every right to do so, that Donald Trump himself is a beneficiary of a system that’s rigged in favor of the elite," he told his viewers. "Let’s not forget The New York Times investigation that revealed at age three, Donald Trump was earning $200,000 a year in today’s dollars.”

Lemon continued that by age eight, Trump was already a millionaire and that “soon after he graduated from college, he was getting the equivalent of a million a year from his father.”

Lemon, who worked as a news assistant at WNYW in New York City while in college, joined CNN in September 2006. He has hosted CNN's New Year's Eve special from New Orleans since 2014.
