Trump Jr. mocks Hollywood cheating scam — but he has his own shady history with college admissions – Alternet.org
Timothy L. O’Brien, a journalist and author best known for his 2005 book “TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald,” quickly jumped in to draw attention to what nearly everyone who read that tweet was thinking.
As O’Brien noted, the Trump children were able to get into elite colleges for reasons that may have had nothing to do with merit.
Golden’s article also quotes a former official at The Frisch School in Paramus, New Jersey, where Kushner attended: “There was no way anybody in the administrative office of the school thought he would on the merits get into Harvard. His GPA did not warrant it, his SAT scores did not warrant it. We thought for sure, there was no way this was going to happen. Then, lo and behold, Jared was accepted. It was a little bit disappointing because there were at the time other kids we thought should really get in on the merits, and they did not.”
