In her "First Thoughts" on Fox Nation Thursday, Tomi Lahren slammed Lori Loughlin for attempting to play the victim in the college admissions scandal.

Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded not guilty to fraud and conspiracy charges on Monday. The couple are accused of bribing their two daughters' ways into the University of Southern California for $500,000 each with alleged scam mastermind William "Rick" Singer.

Entertainment Tonight reported that a source close to the 54-year-old actress said that she was under the impression they might be breaking rules, but not laws.

"They feel they were manipulated by those involved and are planning that as part of their defense," the source said.

Lahren called "bull" on that claim, noting that the girls posed as coxswains to be recruited for USC's rowing team, despite neither being an actual rower.

"That’s not breaking the rules, that’s full-on lying," Lahren said.

She said there is very little sympathy for Loughlin and others implicated in the scheme, because hardworking Americans across the country also want their children to attend elite schools, but they don't bribe their way in.

"You should be ashamed of yourself, your greed and your parenting," Lahren said.

She added that one of Loughlin's daughters, Olivia Jade Giannulli, said in an August 2018 video on her popular YouTube channel that she doesn't "really care about school," and she was looking forward to experiencing "game days and partying."



"See, Lori, you’re an entitled brat who clearly raised entitled brats," Lahren said. "Other parents and students sacrifice everything they have to go to or send their kids to school, and many still can’t afford it. Meanwhile, we’ve got Hollywood elitists like you and your family who bribe your way in, still don’t appreciate it, then expect us to feel sorry for you because you got 'manipulated.'”

"Bull. You didn't get played, you played yourself. And I hope you’re scared straight."
