Tucker Carlson described the fact that politicians — particularly Democrats — manage to get their children into elite Ivy League schools at an astonishingly disproportionate rate compared to the general public as “the real college scandal.”
The Fox News host included several examples during a segment on Monday night’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” including the Cuomo, Gore, Clinton, and Obama families, and juxtaposed the legality of that with Hollywood figures and others currently in legal trouble for trying to bribe their kids’ way into some of the same schools.
Carlson began the segment by focusing on CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who went to Yale despite the fact that “there are nights when Cuomo emits entire paragraphs that mean nothing at all.”
“Is Chris Cuomo a secret genius?” Carlson asked rhetorically. “Does he have some amazing talent that’s invisible on television? Maybe he speaks flawless Urdu? Or has a deep grounding in particle physics? Perhaps he can calculate pi to the final digit? Actually, no. Chris Cuomo can’t do any of that.”
