JUST AS I knew would happen, the Obama’s tennis coach was CAUGHT as one of the scumbags who bribed officials in order to CHEAT their kids’ way into privileged colleges.
From Fox News:
A tennis coach who worked with the family of former President Barack Obama was among the 50 people charged Tuesday in a college admissions scheme in which wealthy parents allegedly bribed coaches and others to get their children accepted to some of the top schools in the U.S.
Gordon Ernst, 52, was a former tennis coach at Georgetown University and the University of Rhode Island. He is accused of conspiracy to commit racketeering while he was at Georgetown.
Ernst was at Georgetown from 2012 to 2017 and was the personal instructor of former first lady Michelle Obama and her daughters, Sasha and Malia, according to the Providence Journal. None of the Obamas are implicated in the scandal in any way.
WHO DID THEY PAY OFF?!?! I bet it was Jeff Sessions, though that doesn’t make any sense whatsoever, it certainly feeds my irrational need for partisan outrage dammit!!
Ernst allegedly accepted nearly $3 million in bribes and in return helped a dozen students get onto the Georgetown’s tennis team, including kids who didn’t actually play the sport in a competitive fashion, according to the New York Post.
The scam was run by William Singer, who helped parents get their children’s college admissions through bribes, according to court documents. Singer, an admissions consulting company founder, pleaded guilty in Boston federal court to charges including racketeering conspiracy and obstruction of justice.
Ugh, what a piece of crap.
The college bribery scam outrages me so much because these are people who are already privileged trying to purchase their way into privilege for their lazy stupid kids. I really hope they get to face severe consequences, but I fear that they will use their privilege to escape that too.
WHAT kind of people would hire such a scumbag tennis coach??! Well, the Obamas did, and probably all sorts of people did, and we really can’t judge them through the scumbag behavior of their tennis coach. Though I bet some of you will… also, #MAGA!!
