"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.
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
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
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!
