This is a fake attack on the wealthy to justify Trumps proposals to cut student Federal loans and Pell grants that help poor students.

So the education system in the United States is giving rich so called "white" kids a handicap... Why am I not surprised? At least it's not giving ALL so called "white" kids a handicap like it has throughout most of American history.

Where's Trump on this!

What I want to know is, is college really worth all that money?

Singer said he's been doing this for 20 yrs. I wonder how far back they will go and what happens to all the kids that benefitted from it?

People wonder why younger people are trending towards socialism. Hmmm

If students with learning disabilities are getting into Harvard, what does that say about Harvard? Just sayin’. My son has a disability and because of this, he surely isn’t going to qualify. Such fraud hurts these people even more.

They are all Democrats.

How is it that about fifty people were reported to have participated in this college admission scam and the media keep talking about only two families? Why not interchange the names and put the rest of them in the spot light as well.

Not sure it would be as big a "news" deal if Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman weren't involved.

What about affirmative action?That's also an atrocity!How come nobody's talking about it,like those two anchors who got their positions not based on meritocracy!

Takes "Dumb Blondes" to a new level 🤤. Good punishment for this people! The Universities should also be exposed in this huge scam!

Minority students do not do as well on the tests. The reporter indicates otherwise. I happen to favor some affirmative action, albeit very little, but the inference that the minority students on the whole have the scores to get in is simply not true.

Jared Kushner?
What about all the Kennedys?
And Chelsea Clinton?
And Malia Obama?
