The recent college admissions scandal confirmed what everyone already knew about colleges and universities: The mediocre children of rich and powerful people like the Clintons get a free pass.

A federal affidavit that was made public Tuesday revealed a huge scandal in which wealthy parents spent as much as $75,000 to cheat their students into prestigious colleges and universities, according to the Associated Press.

Parents such as actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman paid Edge College & Career Network, also known as The Key, to take the ACT or SAT at a private test center, where answers were provided or corrected.

But as Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed out Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” this recent college admissions scandal doesn’t “even touch the greatest scandal of all.”

“And that’s how the mediocre children of the politically powerful on both sides take top spots at top schools without even resorting to bribery. They get it for free. They are just awarded them for the achievement of being born,” Tucker explained.

“That’s how Chelsea Clinton wound up at Stanford and Oxford … And then making documentary films nobody ever watched. All without having a single original thought ever in her life.”

Like the children in the most recent cheating scandal, the Clintons’ daughter was accepted by top schools, seemingly for no other reason than being born rich and powerful.

But it’s worse because the Clintons probably didn’t even have to bribe anybody.

“You know what that is?” Tucker continued. “That’s an aristocracy disguised as a meritocracy. It’s a scam.”

Here’s hoping the new scandal will put a magnifying glass on the entire, corrupt process of college admissions.

Schools are eager to pick up elite students in the same way they are eager to invoke affirmative action to pick up any student that fits the school’s diversity quotas.

Currently, nobody knows how colleges and universities pick their students and what algorithms they use, because it’s obviously not based on merit alone.

“What the rest of us don’t know but should know is how the college admissions system actually works,” Carlson said. “Who gets in and why?”

In fact, Harvard came under fire just last year for discriminating against Asian-American students.

But Harvard’s discrimination scandal didn’t have the “sticking power” of juicier stories, and the establishment media stopped covering it — just like every time affirmative action and the corrupt admissions operation get attention.

Colleges and universities are dens of corruption, and it’s time for taxpayers to demand transparency in the admissions process.

    Perhaps it is time we went after the colleges who are paid to graduate certain ethnic students.

    And to think the person holding the scalpel they might not know what they’re doing. Or the one designing your house might not be what there school said they are because they took a bribe and let a slug graduate for $100,000. Then you find your million dollar house is built on a mine and needs to be abandoned!!!!

    I do hope the Clinton family will be exposed by the media,in case they have abused certain admission procedures or cheated their daughter into top schools.Even if they got the admission for free they still have a big problem explaining why.Their lack of trustworthiness is obvious.What a blessing their influence and political power belong to the past.

      What blows my mind is the article tries to shut Tucker Carlson down for his comments, when every other cable station that is NOT Fox News cuts down Ivanka Trump every time she opens her mouth while advancing the entrepreneurship of women and helping mothers have benefits that allow them to be a parent and yet have a uplifting career, too. Same goes for Melania Trump. She is out there with her projects encouraging our children to “BE BEST” they can be, not cheat to get into college, or grow up believing they are above everyone else, but to contribute their talents to help America and to further their own achievements and self esteem by WORKING FOR IT. But these women are barraged every day on TV or newspapers and magazines….and yet…….they carry on with compassion and goals to help America.

      Don’t kid yourself, the Clintons still have their fingers in our political system and are still getting ALL the benefits of their political class in this country.

      I hope they eventually get everything that is coming to them for their corruption and betrayal of the citizens/taxpayers of this country.

    There are everyday people who graduated from High School or earned a GED and one of the requirements is to take the SAT for admissions into a School of Higher Learning and I bet they did well on the test only to be disqualified from USC, Yale, Harvard etc and all these rich Hillary Clinton supporters pay thousands of dollars to have their children not have to take the SAT even affirmative action is bribery in itself to get more votes for the Democratic Party and these rich leftists took away an opportunity for everyday students to get into college of higher learning.

      Yep and I bet you this talking will go on for ever.
      Corruption is at the highest peak and it will get worse. There is only one solution to corruption that is a “fresh new start” rennaisance that is. A recalibration of society at large because the old one is doom and already doomed to fail. We have gone too far and with Mr Trump efforts to make America great again will only be successful with a new start, sorry.

        Yeah! How DARE they interfere with Herr Trump’s efforts to turn the U.S. into a totalitarian state! How DARE they stand up for those who aren’t billionaires or children of billionaires! And how DARE they suggest that education, knowledge and insight are better than ignorance and bigotry!

      The media in this country are just as corrupt as the politicians are. They are accessories to the crimes of the political class for sure and certain. I cannot pay attention to anything on any of them except Fox. CNN and MSMBC are total jokes for any kind of lucid reporting.

    This type of elitism has been going on since kings and queens. Not a fan of the clintons. The daughter was a presidents daughter. The difference is Chelsea can’t shut her yap and stay out of politics on a national level.

    Apparently, Chelsea Clinton complained recently that her grandmother did not have access to abortion! And that is her original thought!

    This is ludicrous. Poor old Tucker with his vintage 70s toupee got caught spewing racist insults, and is now trying to deflect from them by pointing fingers at Chelsea CLinton. And FOX News fans are falling for it, just as they always fall for it when the right tries to deflect from their own misdeeds.

    “But Chelsea Clinton!”

    “But Hillary Clinton!”

    “But Obama!”

    “But Joe Biden!”

    (and their latest nemesis, whom they constantly try to destroy because they’re afraid of her potential:) “But AOC!”

      And the Killintons have been caught numerous times making racist comments ONLY to be ignored by the media all together….”the black faces” photo….the “hot sauce” comment….the “bringing me my coffee” comment…BUT you libtards only bring up comments made by conservatives….HUH

      Looks as if Tucker hit Olivia’s button. She’s probably on the list for buying her acceptance into a college. Just like the Obamas and their daughters getting accepted, and Michelle continually whined about being poor. Nowadays, the colleges don’t use the grade system—pass or fail, which means all of these protesters pass.

    How many also make huge donations to the sports part of universities, that would never be tied to admissions, but could very well have had some qualifiers added to the donated monies?

    I think those who are in certain occupations would have to have been qualified in order to perform post graduation but think of those who were graduated with degrees equivalent to under water basket weaving but only known as having a degree from X well known university. Unfortunately,these days, having the ‘paper’ is more important than what field the ‘paper’ earned came from. Practical knowledge as opposed to assumed knowledge.

    Knowing Hillary’s past she finagled a way to get poor desperate Chelsea into a prestigious college, with out spending a dime of HER money. I am not sure Chelsea was the brightest bulb in the pack, but she has learned from her cheating mother how to get along in life.

    Don’t forget the Obamas and their half-wit getting accepted. No doubt she will be another community protester.

    When I hear people like Olivia speak, talking about Herr Trump and his Totalitarian country, I have to laugh at her ignorance. If she did go to “higher learning” she doesn’t appear to have majored in world history. Or any other kind of history for that matter. I wonder if she could name one thing President Trump has done that is totalitarian and how her life has changed because of it. Actually we should feel sorry for someone like her that lives in an angry place, sucking lemons on a daily bases. It must be hard to face life. Me… I am happy the economy is great, people have jobs, they are buying homes for the first time. Our President is building the wall on the border and NATO countries are paying more of their fair share. Trump 2020

    Olivia has been sucked into the Cult of Socialist Nationalist Nazi Democratic Party!
    The older Chelsea gets the more she looks like her father
    Hubble! Plastic surgery can’t cover up this strong resemblance! No wonder Bill Clinton stays away from her.
