Twitter wasted no time reminding Junior about the many advantages he has enjoyed courtesy of his dad.

Lots of people threw stones at Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin over the admissions scandal — some of them from palatial glass houses.

The President's son Donald Trump Jr. had plenty to say about the actresses allegedly using their money and privilege to give their children an unfair advantage.

Posting an unfortunate old tweet of Felicity's asking for "the best hacks for back-to-school season", he jibed: "I’m learning some new ones as we speak. Stay tuned."

He also retweeted an old Lori tweet about "doing the right thing", simply snarking: "Hollywood."

"Is it just me or is everyone in Hollywood strangely silent today?" he asked afterwards. "Come on guys you're always very vocal in forcing your opinions on everyone... What changed?"

One place that wasn't quiet was Twitter, which wasted no time reminding Junior about the many advantages he has enjoyed courtesy of his dad.

Many pointed out that the President sent his children to his old alma mater University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School — making generous six-figure donations around the same time.

Many more pointed out that Trumps Sr's former personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen had just last week testified before Congress that he had threatened the President's old schools against leaking his test and SAT scores under pain of lawsuit. Trump Sr. got into UPenn as a Fordham transfer student, which was reportedly helped along by an admissions officer who was a friend of his older brother.

Don Junior's career, following college, has been under the employ of his father.

Despite Harvard not being among the colleges connected to the admission scam, it trended on Twitter Tuesday nevertheless, as countless users reminded followers that Don Jr's brother-in-law Jared Kushner was admitted to the Ivy League school right around the time his dad Charles donated $2.5million. None of which is illegal, but many on Twitter felt it certainly painted a picture of privilege.
