Twitter wasted no time reminding Junior about the many advantages he has enjoyed courtesy of his dad.
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."
I’m learning some new ones as we speak. Stay tuned. https://t.co/ftJjYtMUxt— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) March 12, 2019
Is it just me or is everyone in Hollywood strangely silent today? Come on guys you're always very vocal in forcing your opinions on everyone... What changed?— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) March 12, 2019
"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.
i've been fucking inundated with jokes about this. it's literally the only fucking thing people are talking about. it's frustrating, considering that someone at mar-a-lago sold access to your dad to Chinese businessmen and you lied to congress, and I wish they'd focus on that.— Timothy Simons (@timothycsimons) March 12, 2019
How about this @DonaldJTrumpJr, You release your high school and college transcripts and SAT scores to prove you got into Wharton on merit and I'll do the same for my Harvard acceptance.— Franklin Leonard (@franklinleonard) March 12, 2019
You game? https://t.co/ilc48ahYry
Hey, @DonaldJTrumpJr, how about releasing your SAT score(s) and high school grades to prove you got into an Ivy League school without your daddy doing anything you’re mocking Lori Loughlin about. Then do the same for daddy. And Ivanka. And Eric. #Hypocrite pic.twitter.com/n6bouamjFP— Mrs. Betty Bowers (@BettyBowers) March 12, 2019
Tell me about it. How about the Emmyless reality star whose son is so dumb he had to pay to get him into Penn.— Tony Posnanski (@tonyposnanski) March 12, 2019
You were literally incontinent during most of your Ivy League education.— Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC) March 12, 2019
I don't want to read *any* tweets from @DonaldJTrumpJr about the Varsity Blues scandal unless he has printed them out and paperclipped to them his transcript from every educational institution he ever attended along with a record of how much money his dad gave to each one of them— Seth Abramson (@SethAbramson) March 12, 2019
The parents involved in this cheating scandal are an insult to hard-working parents like the Kushners who were forced to buy a whole building to get their child into college.https://t.co/cIsotW9LZ8— Bill Prady (@billprady) March 12, 2019
I went to Harvard with Jared Kushner so mostly my comment about this whole bribery scandal is that Harvard is better at getting big bribes. $500K for a whole kid?? Harvard got $25 million just for Jared!!! Do better, Yale!— Chanda Prescod-Weinstein 🙅🏽♀️ 🇧🇧🌈 (@IBJIYONGI) March 12, 2019
You got Aunt Becky. Now do Jared Kushner.— Wajahat Ali (@WajahatAli) March 12, 2019
Everyone knows if you are going to bribe your way into an Ivy League school, you send the check to the school directly, like Jared Kushner's dad did.https://t.co/QfPMuxVYwf— Brian Fallon (@brianefallon) March 12, 2019
