Tomi Lahren: College Admissions Scandal Shows Hypocrisy, Entitlement of Nation's Elites
Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren said the shocking college admissions scandal highlights the hypocrisy of the nation's elites, including some in Hollywood.
Federal authorities announced charges Tuesday against more than 50 individuals, including "Full House" star Lori Loughlin and "Desperate Housewives" actress Felicity Huffman, for an alleged scheme in which wealthy parents paid bribes to facilitate their children's admission into some of the country's top universities.
In addition to the notable actresses, dozens of other parents - including high-profile business executives - were charged in the scheme, which was run by William "Rick" Singer, owner of the Edge College & Career Network and CEO of the Key Worldwide Foundation.
On "Fox & Friends" Thursday morning, Lahren said wealthy liberals often preach fairness and equality, but then stories like this come along.
"This is really par for the course," Lahren said. "They don't think that they're going to get caught, because, really, these elitists never think that they're going to get caught. They think that there's a separate system for them, that they deserve it, that they're entitled to this."
Brian Kilmeade noted that Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli was actually spending spring break on a University of Southern California official's yacht when her mother was accused of involvement in the scheme.
Lahren said she's not surprised at all, arguing that the problem is much bigger than this one, isolated scandal.
"We idolize these people, we give them so many passes. After everything that's gone down with the entertainment industry in the last three to five years, specifically, why are we still giving these people a pass?" Lahren asked.
She said it's time to stop treating celebrities as if they are moral arbiters and giving them so much credit, because they don't deserve it.
