Huckabee slams wealthy parents in college admissions scandal

Huckabee slams wealthy parents in college admissions scandal


MELISSA: LORI LAUGHLIN IS SET TO APPEAR IN COURT JUST MOMENTS FROM NOW AFTER BEING TAKEN INTO CUSTODY BY THE FBI IN THE LARGEST COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL BY THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IN IT IS EXPOSING SOME OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN HOLLYWOOD AND SILICON VALLEY. ONE OF THEM BEING PRIVATE EQUITY FIRM EXECUTIVE BILL MCGOSHIN WHO IS KNOWN FOR ADVOCATING SOCIAL GOOD IN ETHICAL INVESTING. HE HAS ETHICAL INVESTING FUND IN ADDITION TO HIS OTHER INVESTMENTS. HERE IS MIKE HUCKABEE, FORMER ARKANSAS GOVERNOR AND FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR. THIS ONE REALLY GOT ME, GOVERNOR, BECAUSE THIS IS A GUY WHO MAKES ALL KINDS OF LOFTY STATEMENTS AFTER HE MADE A FORTUNE INVESTING IN SPOTIFY, AIRBNB, UBER. HE STARTED ONE OF THOSE ETHICAL INVESTING FUNDS YOU CAN MAKE MONEY AND BE ETHICAL AT THE SAME TIME. BONO IS INVOLVED IN IT. HERE IS ONE OF HIS COURTS EVERY DOLLAR IS USED MOST EFFECTIVELY NARROWING GAATP, ADVANCING PROGRESS TOWARDS ECONOMIC INCLUSION. FROM THAT WORD SALAD CAME THE MAN WHO NOW IS ALLEGED, YOU KNOW, SPENT A FORTUNE BRIBING HIS CHILD’S WAY INTO USC, PRETENDING LIKE HE WAS A PLACE KICKER. ALLEGEDLY CHANGING HIS TEST SCORES. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE HYPOCRISY HERE, GOVERNOR?>>THERE IS BIBLICAL VERSE, MELISSA, PRIDE GOETH BEFORE A FALL AND THIS IS A PRETTY BIG FALL FOR SOME OF THESE PEOPLE ESPECIALLY A PERSON WHO IS CLAIMING TO BE ETHICAL. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOIST UNETHICAL AND DISGUSTING THINGS WE’VE SEEN IN THE WAY OF A CRIME WAVE IN A LONG TIME BECAUSE IT IS PEOPLE WHO ARE CHEATING A SYSTEM AND IT IS NOT JUST THAT THEY’RE CHEATING FOR THEIR KIDS, THAT’S BAD ENOUGH, BUT THEY’RE CHEATING KIDS WHO NEED AD BREAK, WHO NEED AD CHANCE. KIDS THAT WORKED HARD AND TRIED, MADE THE GRADES ON THEIR OWN AND THROUGH THEIR HARD WORK BUT THEY DIDN’T HAVE PARENTS SHELLING OUT BRIBE MONEY. SO THEREFORE THEY DIDN’T GET TO GO TO HARVARD OR YALE OR USC. I TELL YOU THIS, THOUGH, THOSE KIDS, THEY WILL BE BETTER OFF THAN THE KIDS WHO GOT IN THROUGH SOME PHONY PROCESS. I FEEL FOR THOSE KIDS, BECAUSE CLEARLY THEY DIDN’T GET THERE THROUGH MERIT. THEY’RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO MAKE IT THAT BIG IN THE BUSINESS WORLD OR IN WHATEVER CAREER THEY CHOOSE TO GO INTO, BECAUSE NOBODY IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO KEEP BEING THERE TO ALWAYS BAIL THEM OUT AND BRIBE THEIR WAY THROUGH LIFE. IT IS TRAGIC. MELISSA: YEAH. SO THIS SENIOR EXECUTIVE FROM TPG, HE WAS PLACED ON LEAVE FROM THE FUND. I DON’T KNOW HOW HE CAN RECOVER BECAUSE HE IS THE FACE OF THIS, RISING FUND THAT IS SUPPOSED, THE RISE FUND, SUPPOSED TO BE ALL ABOUT YOU KNOW, RIGHTING THE WORLD’S WRONGS. SOME OF THE THINGS HE ACCUSED OF DOING, PROSECUTORS SAY HE PAID $50,000 IN ORDER TO DOCTOR HIS SON’S ACT PERFORMANCE. HE MADE A 250,000-DOLLAR DONATION TO USC. HE FAKED THAT HE WAS A PLACEKICKER HE SAID. I WILL MAKE HIM A KICKER, PUNTER, THEY WILL WALK HIM THROUGH WITH THE FOOTBALL. HE SAYS IT IS PRETTY FUNNY. THE WAY THE WORLD WORKS THESE DAYS IS UNBELIEVABLE. HE IS ALMOST SOUNDS LIKE FROM THE TAPES WITH THE GOVERNMENT, DECRYING THAT THE WORLD IS SO CORRUPT AT THE SAME TIME THAT HE IS PARTICIPATING IN FRAUD AND THEN ON THE OTHER HAND RUNNING A HOLIER THAN THOU FUND WHERE THEY’RE GOING TO DO GOOD, YOU KNOW, WITH THEIR PROFITS, RATHER THAN JUST INVESTING FOR PROFIT. THEY WILL TRY TO DO GOOD WORKS IN ADDITION TO THAT?>>YEAH, MELISSA, I THINK THE ARROGANCE OF THIS GUY WHO PRETENDS TO BE ONE THING AND CLEARLY IS A HYPOCRITE AND DOES SOMETHING QUICK THE OPPOSITE. HIS SON A KICKER. I THINK HIS SON NEED TO KICK HIS OLD MAN IN THE REAR END, THANKS FOR NOTHING, POPS, YOU RUINED MY LIFE. I THINK THERE IS GOOD CHANCE SOME OF THESE FOLKS WILL DO A FINE, NOT JUST GET TIME. I DON’T LIKE PEOPLE GOING TO PRISON BECAUSE IT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY, BECAUSE FRANKLY WE TAXPAYERS HAVE TO PAY FOR IT. SOMETIMES THERE OUGHT TO BE EXAMPLE. THERE NEEDS TO BE A REAL CLEAR ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THINGS THAT HAVE ROBBED OTHER KIDS OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO COLLEGE. I THINK SOME OF THESE PEOPLE WILL GET FROG MARCHED ACROSS THE FEDERAL COURTHOUSE LAWN. MELISSA: THAT’S FUNNY, YOU MENTIONED THE TAXPAYERS, ONE OF THE THINGS THEY WAY THEY FUNNELED THE MONEY TO THE GUY THROUGH A FAKE CHARITABLE DONATION. THEN THEY DEDUCTED IT ON THEIR TAXES. SO HE TOOK A TAX DEDUCTION IT IS ALLEGED FOR HAVING USED THIS MONEY FOR BRIBERY. SO THAT IS TAX FRAUD ON TOP OF

    Ok first : they will never do time in jail and second that practice will never end.

  2. Marie James says:

    That’s how your daughter Sarah got her Job in the WH lying For the Trump .

  3. Julia Hoover says:

    So many, many more people involved. Bet a lot of universities are going to have a lot of "lost records" in their admissions departments.😉

  4. john zelenak says:

    I THINK THE DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING TOO SAVE OBAMA! THIS IS STRANGE! SOMETHING OFF IN THIS SCANDAL! IT'S A PERFECT MISDIRECT!

  5. ccefc_families says:

    Ethical investing? Ha! What a hypocrite! No one will ever trust his word ever again.

  6. John Balkcom says:

    Nothing is new about this scandal. I'm surprised white privilege is being highlighted at all !!!

  7. Michael Valente says:

    So, Trump got into Wharton, Kushner got into Harvard, Bush got into Yale…

  8. billybbob18 says:

    Every employer will give their own tests in the future to verify qualifications. Some of the people who graduated from my school have the same "paperwork" I have yet they didn't earn it. Many colleges are pressured into meeting graduation quotas so they pretty much hand out degrees to anyone willing to shell out the dough for education. I dont care about that. I learned legitimately and employers can see that. Three months after being hired, every employer knows weather the employee is worth their salt. Getting in is one thing. Staying there is another story all together.

  9. JJ Grey says:

    Even Cuttin' Corner Mike knows this was stupidity…and it was…when you bribe somebody all you've done is buy a witness against you down the road…

  10. Vanilla gorilla says:

    We should bring back public lashings. I’d rather take 5 lashes than lose a year of freedom. Would you?

  11. Brenda Orvis Shay says:

    It’s a great Biblical Verse ! It applies in all circumstances. If only we could all see the light!

  12. trajan hercules says:

    Gov. Huckabee is out of touch with Hollywood. These rich kids will have it made when they get that college degree. That degree will open up all kinds of doors for them that are not open already. They will easily get the money to start their own businesses and they wont have to worry about paying off school loans. When they are YouTube influencers or decide to run for political office based on their celebrity pedigree they can say that they have a college degree. Thats why they cheat.

  13. Katie Bistiglione says:

    Jail time, this is serious stuff!!! Disgraced by all the lies

  14. Jake Baba says:

    AND THIS IS THE MUCH TOUTED "GREATNESS OF AMERICA" SOUNDS HOLLOW AND FULL OF FROTH, NO REALITY AND ALL COMING CRUSHING DOWN AT THE TOUCH OF TRUTH WHICH ALWAYS EXPOSES THE LIES AND FALSEHOOD.

  15. Bob BarkerIII says:

    Rich people game the system? Who knew!

  16. trajan hercules says:

    I wonder what do you people think happens to poor American kids when illegal aliens flood their schools and neighborhoods and ruin their ability to get the best education and opportunity? Who opens the borders for these illegal aliens and gives them jobs and sanctuary? Rich people thats who!

  17. Larry Rucker says:

    It is time that these kids learn that life isn't fair. They will always find someone that gets an unfair advantage. Many professional decisions are based on personal feelings rather than merit. Just because you are most qualified, best fit, greatest seniority, or whatever else may be used as judgement, doesn't mean anything when family, friends, and paybacks are the deciding issues. You may be the absolute most valuable employee, but you may be too valuable for the next step or grade, that is reserved for the one that will be incapable of the same performance. Always be ready to start over, take care of your needs, don't count on capabilities for professional rewards, and don't take it personal. Move on, you can make it better for someplace or someone that appreciates your efforts. Always remember that those doing the judging may not be as qualified as you, and do make mistakes.

  18. Tavoi Aiono says:

    Well I hope the American people think twice about voting from here on. Because this doesnt just happen in the education system. The government is guilty as charged too.

  19. Saad Mahboob says:

    Innocent faced criminals

  20. Byron Anderson says:

    Maybe Gov./Rev. Huckabee should've spent some of his millions on bribery so his little piglet could have gotten a better education. Seeing that she's a preacher's daughter, she's got the lying course mastered.

  21. chozhavendan says:

    fools with bought out college degrees are occupying top positions in Govt. are ruining the system by corruption ..so ultimately , this will become the Govt of fools , by fools and for fools.. imagine the consequences in the next few decades..

  22. Max Roelen says:

    So tell us Mike Huckabee, what qualifications did your daughter Sarah have to become Press Secretary to the POTUS??

  23. Dave Hix says:

    Well, our speech has officially been taken, IF YOU SPEAK OUT ABOUT AN INJUSTICE,, THEY CALL YOU A NAME OR AN ISLAMAPHOBIC,,,AS A TRUMP SUPPORTER WE HAVE BEEN CALLED ALL KINDS OF BAD NAMES,,NO ONE CARED, YET THEY SAY HORRENDOUS REMARKS AND THATS ALRIGHT,, WHEN ELECTIONS COME, THAT WILL BE A COME TO JESUS MOMENT, THEY WILL BE ASKED THESE QUESTIONS, NO MORE STALLING, KAMALA HARRIS,, MAYBE BY YOUR HOUSE, IF YOU NEED POLICE PROTECTION, THEY CAN CALL THE POLICE, BEFORE THE PERSON KILLS YOU,,WHAT ARE YOU, JUST STUPID? BUT WE HAVE LOTS OF QUESTIONS, SUCH AS ABORTION, VOTING AT 16, ANTISEMINISM, AND MANY MORE

  24. Dave Hix says:

    I KNOW WHY THEY DONT WANT FOX NEWS AT THE COMPETITION,THEY KNOW FOX WILL ASK THE HARD QUESTIONS.,JUST LIKE FAKE NEWS DID FOR TRUMP,,THIS WAY THEY WILL ONLY BE ASKED S O FT BALL QUESTIONS,,COVER UP AGAIN,,,GONNA GIVE THEM THE ANSWERS AGAIN?

  25. Julie Boyton says:

    Who's next

  26. Michigan USA/Singapore S.E.Asia says:

    Huckabee how do we know u didn’t do the same??

  27. marc ravey says:

    Why don't you close down Yale & Harvard. They knew about the bribes. They get off because of higher learning?.
    Look you may not like elitism but these schools should have to pay a price also. These schools should have to give free tuition to under privilege students who qualify for the prison sentence of those who go to jail

  28. DEDE13 says:

    Anyone want a doctor who faked they're way through med school? YEAH THAT'S WHAT I THOIGHT!!!

  29. Ken Johnson says:

    Oh My God. Huckabee, who has hid behind the Bible to scam people, push racism and hate has got the phucking nerve. His daughter is the mouthpiece for the most lying person in history and had she not been his daughter, the right-wing troll, do you think she is not only the most qualified, but qualified at all to work in the WH? OMG Huckster. STFU.

  30. Ann Luttrell says:

    I wonder how many of these people reporting this got into school the same way.

  31. Duke71 says:

    is this the guy who pulled strings and got his daughter a job in the white house?

  32. TheFifth Estate says:

    bunch of lefty hollywood scum

  33. Nofrackingzone 2.0 says:

    Worked for the Kennedy’s. Hahahaha. Mike spent too much time as a Sunday school teacher, NONE of these people will ever go to jail. Grow the hell up.

  34. The Wraith says:

    Trump's daddy paid off a doctor to keep him out of Vietnam. #bonespurs

  35. Tiger Steele says:

    ETHICAL INVESTING FUNDS??!! HIS BUSINESSES SHOULD BE SCRUTINIZED!!!! PROSECUTE ALL INVOLVED ….TO THE MAXIMUM!!!!

  36. Gavin Mcinally says:

    They aint going to real jail. 2 weeks house arrest. Lol

  37. Linda Adelleio says:

    Investigate ….file charges and prosecute to the full extent of the law…..this is a disgrace with a definite link to all the elite on the left….They all think they are better than the rest of society. Mail fraud….Rico rules set up for racketeering should be used for these people charged….10 to 20 years for each of them should be a great deterrent for others.

  38. thomas evans says:

    How about the 20 million dollar,s Saudi Arabia paid to get Obama in collage because he was so stupid , That,s why he paid 3 million dollar,s to lock his collage record,s up . And Trump offer 5 million to release them , Why would,nt he be proud to show off and get the 5 million ? Stupid America .

  39. big Lbo says:

    MOST OF THESE CELEBRITY KIDS WILL NOT MAKE IT IN ANYTHING.  THEY WILL MOST LIKELY END UP IN JAIL OR THEREAPY OR IN SOME OUTREACH CENTER TO DRY OUT.  THAT WILL BE THERE ENTIRE LIFE.

  40. dick welch says:

    If it was Hillary nothing would happen

  41. Barry Rosette says:

    Yes and not only should he be indicted but also the Colleges and Universities that received the donations and blessings of Fraudulent monies.  Yes if this guy gave a University $250,000.00 then that university should set up a scholarship program to those that got ripped off from their spot at these universities. You go back to that time period and get all those REJECTED applications and began to give them (those students that applied) that money to go to that school.  Especially if their SAT was legit!! That's why I believe that the Colleges and Universities are complicit in this and their hands are not clean.  Because they had to know that when people give you that sum of money that they are buying something in return!!

  42. Ānakhem Sekhem Ra says:

    MAGA = My Accomplices Get Arrested…👮🚓😂

  43. Scott Gordon says:

    I wonder what Trumps parents paid

  44. Jan Coffey says:

    Quoting scripture, his daughter lies everyday and his son is known for killing dogs. POS

  45. T MO says:

    They're not going to be able to make it big? Do you know US History?

  46. Karen Bishop says:

    Oh please huckleberry should sit down his daughter works for the biggest crook. And she got her job thru his name.

  47. ICO ToDay says:

    This is just one of many ring leaders. Next, lets go after the politicians, lobbyists and those behind the scenes. Classic case of "RULE BY DECEPTION"

    lol

  49. justrosie1 says:

    Can the FBI please get Hillary and Obama please.

  50. Alba Gutierrez says:

    If I were any of these parents I would use that money to get a face surgery and move far away how embarrassing this is and I wonder how the kids must feel I mean one this is the world knows you are stupid but by doing this the parents are agreeing that their kids are really stupid 😂

  51. Homer Clark says:

    Must put white collar criminals in prison. The big distortion we have between rich and poor in America is poor people go to prison for stealing 10,000 dollar car. Rich people get nothing for rigging any business venture in their favor. Regardless of the amount of money involved or whose life gets destroyed.

  52. PETRIT HALILI says:

    i'm not surprised that people doing this. i'm surprised that FBI got involved in this

  53. JohnsRadios says:

    Hey Huckabee do Donald Trump and his kids next on college admissions.

  54. Larry Betancourt says:

    He shouldn't be slamming any parent look what his daughter has become complete American liar

  55. Lisa Surlie says:

    If only ted bundy killed Lori and felicity back in the 70s If only he came across them he would have!

  56. Lisa Surlie says:

    Why do you have to be an athlete to get into college???

  57. sharon hillman says:

    Did he actually say he doesn't like to see people go to prison unless absolutely necessary. Then start letting black people out for all of their minor offenses. You had a young black teen years ago in jail for 2-3 years for allegedly stealing a backpack because his family couldn't pay the bail but you had a white female teenager recently in Cherokee co , GA got 36 months probation from driving and killing 3 people why she was using her cellphone. The judges system has never been fair to black people.

  58. Cindy Swaby says:

    Mediocre kids in a system that is already set up for them to be at an advantage. Sounds like less than mediocre kids and parents to me.

  59. Todd Jones says:

    USC = University Spoiled Children

  60. Ginevra Williams says:

    So what's new? They buy the best of everything; Education, Love (husband/wife), the best jobs. WHITE PRIVILEGE ALWAYS.

  61. rioclaro2 says:

    Really cheapens the degrees that have been passed out!

  62. Deborah Hoffman says:

    Martha Stewart went to prison for far less.

  63. Magic11 says:

    Why were parents not caught yearsss ago??? This is not new and everyone knew this is what rich people do.

  64. Phil Galipeau says:

    I have a sentence suggestion: Asset forfeiture. And jail time. There should be a major fine assessed on these people. The money collected from those fines should go to the kids who were refused and who would have had to borrow for their academic education. Something that would be beneficial for a less fortunate student. And jail time has to be in there also. And not golf course jails.

  65. Phil Galipeau says:

    Is this Sarah Sanders parent. Noooooooooooooo!

  66. johndee759 says:

    You have to have far sight. Celebrity Chef Wolfgang Puck is lecturing at Harvard so that his two young children can attend Harvard in the future. Donate couple millions to establish the Arnold Schwarzenegger Institute at USC.

  67. Doris Reynolds says:

    I want my kids to have an education so that they can work and support theirself besides minimum wage jobs because not being able to support yourself your family hurts. These kids already didn't have to worry about the things my kids have to look forward to without the education. I understand a mother wanting to help there kids achieve there dreams but they were fulfilling dreams without collage which is having the things all humans need an income to have shelter food vehicle the means to survive. And if my kids ever get fortunate enough to be above the average I hope I taught them to be good people that give back to others.

  68. Annelise Freeman says:

    Huh, 250,000 would have gone a long way to getting top shelf tutors. But I guess it is about getting things handed to you without ever doing any work. Scary to think how long this has been going on. I am, too, furious as my kids had to work their butts off to get their SAT scores.

  69. daphnie7 says:

    Wait! They throw her under the bus, for admissions scam??… but they put in jail the people using illegal immigrants' votes?

  70. Ice Blue says:

    These people are social climbers. The super rich do not pay only so much. They donate buildings that other students will benefit from. Why? Because they can.

  71. Ice Blue says:

    Karma quickly got these ill intent social climbers whose children do not have the brains and the intention to go to college.

  72. carol hartford says:

    Huckabee should have paid more attention to the way he raised his own daughter. Sarah is at the very least a liar. He needs to recognize just how far off the mark his cheating daughter is.
    What a hypocrite! He needs to shut his mouth.

  73. Sam Sunwoo says:

    For those rich parents of stupid kids, famous college names are just like designer accessories.

  74. Cheryl Webb says:

    lori s girls seem so self absorbed. it would be better for them to focus on character and service rather than beauty and status. I hope I m not being too judgemental.

  75. C W says:

    Be careful Mr. Huckabee. How do you know that some have not learned from this? I pray they have learned from this and can have a life and do good. Don't be so quick to judge. I have seen much more disgusting things happen. Come on! And we know that some of these Universities accept money to better their schools.

  76. Sumirosa says:

    Yep, very unethical just like your lying daughter Mr. Hucks.

  77. T Cla says:

    When you have a daughter that has a career LYING to the face of the public…..disqualifies you from judging other people's unethical behavior.

  78. Boy Trent says:

    i hate this world…..

  79. Karine Fonte says:

    Are you serious?!? You use connections and political weight to put your daughter in the White House and all of a sudden others doing it is immoral?

  80. Tui Mallhead says:

    Amazing the rich were given their wealth from there great grand parents, and now their kids are given a diploma from a top college for a price. They worship their god the US dollar.

  81. Frank Marti says:

    Anyone with money don't want there kids going with just anyone to this comes as no surprise

  82. Izzy says:

    He had the nerve to condemn others for helping their children when his daughter sits as the face of Trump. It’s clear (crystal clear) that she Ivanka, Elaine Cho, Erik Prince ‘s sister, the Bush & Clinton daughters (hired and pd a quarter million year to interview their family members) were hired because of favoritism. We also see it in fashion, Hollywood, influencers. Open a Vogue magazine and take a look at the highest paid models now. His daughter may not be a Hadad daughter but the same influences worked to get her into the Trump WH.

  83. Joe Haberer says:

    Liars should go to jail…….Hollywood …should be eradicated…..rise …..will be sinking ..

  84. Montero says:

    But y’all are the same. USA is a country of pretending being good citizens and you are not, everything is pretending, fake, show something that they are not. THAT IS YOUR CULTURE, just the same as when you shoot kids at school 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣☺️☺️

  85. Lost and Found says:

    Most of these people are Hollywood Liberals. Go figure

  86. Lost and Found says:

    its amazing that USC didn't know about ALL of these incidents.

  87. RONALD COATS says:

    Rich people been doing this for years this is nothing new

  93. Vox Seven says:

    Rich typically = courpt

  94. Katey Bernal says:

    Are they paying for them too graduate too?? Seriously! Are they paying for the diploma in addition or for them just to get in to said college?

    People with money always win.

  96. N S says:

    Get real none of these participants are going to be incarcerated we all know it's just a song & dance to appease the public.

    This is a common occurence in the Academic, and political world. Are you suprised?

  98. John Tatum says:
